It’s not quite on a bay, but it might as well be given the maritime bounty on offer at this restaurant along MacPherson Road. Just a fifteen minute walk from MacPherson station, Crab at Bay Seafood Restaurant is a specialist when it comes to Chinese-style fish and seafood. Every day the kitchen sources Singapore’s freshest seafood, from clams and tiger prawns, to lobster, crabs, squid and an assortment of fish. The signature crab bee hoon is a big hit in the city-state, as is the classic steamed and buttered lobster. Looking for some esoteric Chinese classics? Go for the shark’s fin with crab meat soup, or moving away from seafood, the essence of chicken with frogs’ legs, whatever that is. You’ll just have to book a table and find out for yourself!
Service and food are good except that 1 staff called up and chase us to arrive quickly. The steamed fish and bamboo clam are very fresh. Crab bee hoon is very gd. Must order it.
Great food with reasonable price and service is great too.Will surely visit again but pls make sure you book in advance as its always packed even during weeday
Food was good. Road side parking a problem. However a short walk in the sun was good. Service ☆☆☆☆+ Crab Bee hook - good & crab solid. Garlic Muscles was good too. The best we have taken. Avoid the steam crab - too wet - steam should just be steamed with a slice or two of ginger - one suggestion serve cold steam crab. Looking forward for this dish on our next visit. Bravo keep it up with the affordable pricing.
The carbs were fresh and meaty. The cooking was good and tasty. A good place to have family lunch. Is value for money. Staffs are friendly and service is good.
We arrived 20 mins late and were glad our table was still reserved for us. I guess they were empathetic of guests due to the rain! Without the table reservation, i might not have been able to eat there as it was almost full house!! Rightfully so as the food was fantastic. The crab bee hoon is indeed a must-try. Service is generally not bad. The waiter was observant and changed our plates without us asking when he saw our plates were filled with the sauce from our 1st dish. Though while we were on our last dish, we had to ask 2 waitresses twice each before 1 of them brought us the chilli we asked for (attention was seemingly gravitated to a table of non-locals). Despite so, we had a wonderful gastronomic experience there. Highly recommended to try this place. But don't expect to be conversing too much over your meal as it can be quite noisy when the restaurant is packed (a lot of reverberations due to the hard interior finishes); you will also be too busy to talk while attacking the crab. ;)
Yesterday was my 3rd time patronized the restaurant with my family although it was a bit far travelling from the west. As usual, friendly service staff, food was served on time. yesterday dinner was full of excitment as many family's celebrate their birthday there. The service staff provide extra service by singing birthday song to total of 6 individual tables. after our meals, the lady boss go round asking feedback for improvement. My family enjoyed the food and the atmosphere, friendly service staff provided.
My first time here. The food is delicious especially the assam fish head and crab bee hoon. Assam fish head is flavourful with just nice spiciness and sour notes. Crab is huge with lots of meat and the bee hoon has the wok hei. Cooked together with the crab, can taste the crab sauce. The place is quite small but overall comfortable. May need to make reservations to prevent disappointment.
A small restaurant with only 9 tables, but we felt very welcomed. Service was prompt and friendly without being pushy, they do not rush you to finish your meals quickly. Dishes were reasonably priced. Gave 5/6 as I prefer the less spicy and sweeter type of chilli crab sauce (e.g. Seafood republic's or Wah Hoe's)- the one served here is slightly more savoury and spicier.
Horrible experience! Initially I was looking forward to having a pleasant meal after seeing all the positive feedbacks thus I made a reservation this morning via their website. However, I received a call at 4.55pm telling me that all their reservation is full and they can't accept my reservation at 6pm! I was asked to come back at 8.40pm instead! I told the lady that my groupon expires today and I had actually just came back from overseas then she told me that I had to finish my meal by 7pm... I'm fine with that as I just wanted to use my Groupon. Upon reaching there were no customers nobody even bothered to serve us nor give us any menu till I asked! I'm really surprised how they got such gd ratings for their service? Maybe I went there on a bad day? Crabs were meaty and fresh but other food wise was just average.. finally I asked for the bill and we were charged $1 for wet towels each which we didn't even use or touch at all! I asked the waitress to rectify and was told that it is their COMPANY POLICY to charge for wet towels even if you didn't use it! The PRC waitress was horrible! $1 each at such exorbitant price?! If 10 pax is $10 mind you! It's like hidden costs. Nothing was explained to us and clearly they have something wrong with their reservation system. I heard them turning down walked in customers claiming it was full. 10 mins later, another family came in without reservation and I overheard a lady(assuming the boss) saying nvm just let them sit but there's no more 2 for $38 crab promo upon hearing that, the family left.. this restaurant is money minded! It's my first encounter with a restaurant that charge you something which u didn't use at all forcing you to pay! Please check your bills!
This is my fifth visit and still loving the food. Although the food is generally very good, my personal favourites have always been the Crab bee-hoon, mixed dish of salted egg chicken/smoked duck/coffee pork ribs, crispy fish skin with kai-lan and frog legs with Essence of Chicken. Highly recommended for yummy food & good service.
