always be a nice restaurant to recommend, golden crab tastes the best than anywhere
One of the best seafood restaurant in Singapore. You can enjoy dinner with your loved ones.
This is great gathering place, please call to reserve srilankan crab one day earlier.
Food prices are value for me. Others is about average
Selected Chin Huat restaurant to celebrate my wedding anniversary after craving for crab feast and reading good reviews online. I would give 4 stars for the food and 5 stars for the service! My husband and I felt very comfortable with this staff named Joe Tan (we knew his name because it was on the receipt and we double cfm with him!). He was non-pushy and gave us sound advice on the portion he thought was enough for 2 people. He told us that the estimated weight of the crab is 1.4kg and we agreed to order it. Afterwards, he brought out the live crab to show us and told us it's actually 1.5kg as this is the smallest his colleague could fished out. It was a mere 0.1kg difference but yet he bothered to check with us to see if we are okay with it. Afterwards, although he was busy, he gladly obliged when we asked him to snap a shot of us, bring us more condiments etc. The food was okay but the main reason I would consider returning is because of Joe's service! :) p.s. Their signature golden sauce crab can get quite jelak for 2 people as the crab is deep fried and the sauce is super rich. It's an awesome dish nevertheless, sharing with more people would make it more enjoyable.
ordered dishes prior to arrival. most of the dishes were served after about 15mins, after i informed the staff when my party has arrived. it's acceptable because it was a busy saturday evening. what wasnt quite acceptable was that 2 dishes did not arrive with the others. it was quite apparent that there was internal miscommunication because they thought it had already been served. anyway, since we already waited for very long and had already finished eating, i asked to cancel the 2 remaining dishes. I was able to cancel 1 of them (fried mantous, which should have been served earlier anyway with another of my dishes which had a dipping sauce) and was not able to cancel the other (fried cuttlefish) as staff said that they were already cooking it and it is"almost finished". So we waited, but the dish did not come for another 20 mins. we were all quite displeased but couldnt be bothered to make a scene. but otherwise, a good experience, with great service apart from the issue mentioned above. food was great, and despite the miscomm, i will still definitely come bck.
It is the first time for my friend to come to Chin Huat Live Seafood restaurant. Fresh bamboo cram & delicious Augus beef. Needless to say, the chili crab is above the standard & different from other restaurants.. The coconut dessert is unforgettable. All these brought an amazing dinner to my friend!
Excellent service by their waiters. I ordered 4 cold crabs for my table of 11. Upon arrival, the manager advised me that the crabs on that day were big and that it could be too much as I had also order other dishes in advance. Besides reducing the qty, she also advised me to change the size of some dishes as 3 of my guests could not make it. That’s was great service for them to advise me. The food was just great. This is my second visit. The noise level was much less as we sat outside.
This was my 2nd experience dinning in Chin Huat Live Seafood. The staffs are friendly and smiled to you whenever you need their help. The boss was humorous and used his time to interact with the customers. I would recommend this place to my friends & relatives. :)
Chin Huat is a true standout among the hordes of seafood restaurants in Singapore. First and most importantly, the food is really good. It has the taste of tradition mixed with a dash of modern creativity. But aside from the food, it's the extras that make the difference. The service is sincere, warm and actually homely. The outdoor veranda is classy yet laid back, reminding me of Raffles Hotel's iconic courtyard. The chairs are the most comfortable i've encountered in a local seafood restaurant and the pristine white tablecloths complete the ambiance.
