Chili Crabs!

Family and I frequent this place for its chili crabs. One of the best in Singapore IMO. Typical neighbourhood restaurant with average ambiance and service. Convenient location too. Overall, fuss-free nicely priced dinner!

Doubt I'll be back

Service is atrociously slow and their attitudes aggressive. After ordering, we waited for 20 minutes before the waiter came to say that 1 of the 2 sambal kangkong we ordered for our 2 tables was no longer available. Requested for us to change to 1 sambal kangkong 1 sambal potato leaves. Fine. 10 minutes after the first 20 minutes (30 minutes in total) the waiter came out to say now the sambal kangkong for our 1st table was now also NOT AVAILABLE. And requested we choose another dish again. After 30 minutes you tell us that both our vegetable dishes are not available? What next? Out of stock for crabs too? The saving grace is that their salted egg and black pepper crabs are good. But I doubt I'll be back after this experience.

Well balanced Chilli Crab

Review first appears here on CityNomads.com.... The founder of Chilli Crab has grown from its humble beginnings as a two-table makeshift stall along the Kallang River to a long-serving restaurant that retains the integrity of their original dish. Fresh and succulent Sri Lankan crabs are doused with a sauce that balances sweet, tanginess and a touch of spice, and unlike many other establishments, you can always expect a good dose of roe to be found in their crabs.

Discount Card doesn't work anymore

For all Roland VIP card holders, please note that Roland will no longer apply the 15% discount to crab items. With the increasingly poor quality over the last few years, this means that there are far better options for Chilli crab around the area, like Hua Yu Wee, at Upper East Coast Road and the various restaurants at the East Coast Seafood Centre. Best to avoid.

above avg rating

we ordered steam crab & chillie crab. steam crab is big & fresh, but the sweetness of the meat is not there. as for the chillie crab, again, the crab is big & fresh, also the sweetness is missing. the gravey is pretty good, not on the sweet side. depends on personnal taste. we also ordered prompert fish, one side is deep fried, while the other side is stir fried with brocolli. i must say this is a good one. other dishes are roast chic, crispy duck, and spinach with mushrm and sea cucumber. these dishes are avg.
