The first of its kind in Singapore, The Cajun Kings serves boiled seafood drowned with mouth-watering flavors of Louisiana and provides a unique dining experience. Get ready to feast with your bare hands in this rustic and laid back eatery as this is the real deal when it comes to "Finger licking good"!

I ordered the Seafood combo ($75) that came with 500g of white Prawn, 250g of clams or mussels, 6 sausages, 1 corn on the cob and selected the sweet potato fries. The sauce that seemed fitting for this seafood platter would be the King's Mix and we went for the spicy level (choice of mild, spicy and extra spicy)!

The King's Mix was with infused with garlic butter, lemon pepper and Cajun spices, indeed a league of its own! For someone (myself) who abstains from most shellfish due to its after taste, but the sauce made whole lot of difference!

Apart from the Seafood, we ordered this: Frog Legs! I know what you are thinking, but it's not chicken wings but legitimate gigantic Butter Fried Frog Legs!

Overall, this messy experience is pretty refreshing from the usual fine-dining decorum. Although it did burn a hole in our pockets, but definitely worth the trip and an option future special celebrations!

Food was good but service spoilt our day

Had a very enjoyable dinner and food was good I must say. Was specially impressed with the fried frog legs. It's a MUST order. 

We arrived at about 710 and we ordered quite alot of food. Even at about 8 pm plus we were still ordering 3 sides. My family and I were impressed with the food but however while eating half way, one of the staff came to me and whispered very softly that there is a reservation at 8.30pm and I only have 5 mins to finish my meal and our drinks.

When I looked at my watch, it was already 8.25. My family and I were still thinking to enjoy and sit down to chat since it was a rare occasion that everyone can make time to sit together and have a meal and since it was also my birthday celebration.

HOWEVER WE HAD TO RUSH EATING OUR FOOD WHICH WE ORDERED SINCE THE FAMILY WHOM HAD THE RESERVATION WAS ALREADY WAITING AT THE ENTRANCE. I think it is normal courtesy to inform me when I made the reservation or at the start of the meal that I only have till 8.30pm for my dinner. I would have introduced and patronise here again but seriously, the food here is not cheap but I have to rush thru my meal? It really spoilt our day and we just had to rush and get out of the shop. Please note that we reached at abt 710 pm and we still had to wait for our food to come and dig in. Maybe we only had an hour to eat? For such a price, totally not worth to be rushing thru ur meal.

Pricey Cajun fare

went to try with family and friends. the five of us ordered a variety of crab, prawns, jumbo, sweet potato fries. the seafood (you can select flavours you prefer) came in the plastic bag so that was a bit of a mess  (understatement!) when we all dug in and ate to our hearts content. The seafood is sold by the weight so it can be pricey, so keep track of how much you order, if not you could be paying through the nose!

the owners were quite approachable and helpful, telling us that this  informal, backyard style of eating originated from the American south. 

The location is a little ulu for most people to trek here.. we live in Serangoon garden, so it's not hard for us to come here. Give it a try if you want to sample some crab in a bag!

Travelled all the way across sunny Singapore for Cajun kings, hunting for my lobster rolls and i was rather keen on trying this place out! But, dor the price BOY WAS I DISAPPOINTED!!

This place is expensive for what they are serving. Crabs at $90 bucks, bread for upwards of $5 (when restaurants usually serve it for free), beers for city prices when its in the surburbs....  Okay the food wouldn't have been that expensive if it was actually good. But sadly, it wasn't my crab was mushy and it was tossed in a sauce which was 90% oil...  Well enough about the food, it was still edible... to an extent!

The service was casual nothing to shout about.

And ambiance looks like a trashy canteen, and the tables were all so sticky and unclean. 

I don't know what you think, but I suggest passing on this place.
