Singapore is a seafood-eater's heaven – the home of the world-famous chilli crab no less – and at House of Seafood in Punggol, you can taste the finest in Chinese-style seafood that Singapore has. House of Seafood have become well-known across the city-state since they opened their first restaurant in 2008, and their spot at The Punggol Settlement – down Punggol Point Road of course – is among the best. Located looking straight out over the sea, you can feel the freshness of the food – what better way to enjoy your meal.
Seafood is superb in Singapore, and the huge Chinese community that inhabits the island is responsible for a lot of it. Their love of the fruits of the sea, combined with the closeness of the water to most things in the city-state means that the raw – and sometimes they are raw – materials of great seafood are always fresh. House of Seafood in Punggol looks out to Malaysia and the ocean from The Punggol Settlement, and this proximity to the produce are one of the many reason why they win awards for their food.
Seafood can be cooked and served in a huge variety of methods, and Chinese-style seafood is among the finest. Singapore’s Chinese are famed for their prowess in the kitchen and their appreciation of great seafood, and they flock in their droves to House of Seafood down Punggol Point Road. The set menus allow diners to enjoy the breadth of offering from the deep: shark’s fin soup and Singapore chilli crab steal the headlines, of course, but we can guarantee that the wider array of fish and crustacean dishes on offer at their Punggol outpost will delight even the most demanding seafood specialist.
The food and the service was excellent. The atmosphere was relaxing and suitable for our family birthday celebration. Overall, good dinner that we had. Really enjoyed
Pleasant meal with family, nice food and good service, will consider to go again if possible as transportion is easier for people who has car.
Friendly staff and nice food. I came with my 2 friends and we have order 4dishes(small size) and 2 flavors of crabs, total $200plus. Location is not so convenience and have to take bus from Serangoon MRT Station.
Huge delicious 2kg black pepper crab. Nice fried tofu. Was not offered an indoor seat as requested in my reservation, find it too hot at the outdoor area.
Black Pepper Crab @ House of Seafood, Punggol Settlement. Last evening, D brought the family for a dinner treat to celebrate his recent promotion. We made table reservations for 6 pax using the #quandoo app and was quite upset that we didn't get the indoor seating as booked. Generally the food was decent, with the highlight going to their Black Pepper Crab (1.2kg for S$ 72). The portioning of the other items so small that its considered pricey. Other items that we ordered: Chilli Crab (1.2kg for S$ 72), Fried Man Tou (12 pieces for S$ 9.60) , Salted Egg French Beans (M size for S$ 16), Honey Pork Ribs (M size for S$ 24), Seafood Casserole (M size for S$ 50) and Sweet Sour Chicken with Quail eggs (M size for S$20). Miscellaneous items paid: Wet tissues (6pieces for S$1.80) , Started crackers (S$ 2), pickles (S$ 2) and Hot Tea (S$5). Total bill inclusive 10% service charge and 7%GST is S$326.50. Verdict: Just stick to the crabs. #burpple #burpplesg #quandooapp
Crabs were rather pricey; order of 2 crabs came to about $240 even though we requested for the smaller sized ones. Saving grace was the Black Pepper Crab, which was outstanding with its rich piquant caramelized sauce. Service staff were polite and dirty plates changed promptly. Main gripe was that they took 20 minutes to get a staff to take our order, which to me was not quite pleasant start to my dining experience. We also ordered dessert but were not informed promptly that one of our items was not available. Wasted another 25-30 minutes waiting. Overall food was acceptable but rest of dining experience not something I'd like to repeat.
very far location, but very nice sea view. The booking online was easy, but it will be good if the restaurant could give me a call to confirm on the reservation, i have to make the call myself. Bcoz i dont receive any confirmation at all. great crab for salted egg yolk and black pepper ones! yummy. BUT the restaurant is INFESTED with BIG FAT HOUSE flies we're super annoyed by the stupid flies...! but great service standard and food...
The portion is a little small but the food quality is really pretty decent & not bad. Love the cereal prawn, fried kway teow with cai po, the gravy for the chilli crab is not bad too with a spicy punch. Will definitely be back at the punggol branch.
The food is very nice and the waiting time is very reasonable, considering that the restaurant was almost fully booked on that day. The only thing I want to highlight is that the tables are too closely packed . There is hardly any space to walk.
Service is not the best. Ordered a butter crab which kitchen forgot. Had to check 3 times before we got an answer. First server did not even bother to get back to us. Eventual excuse was that they ran out of 1kg crabs. If so, no one bothered to inform us in the first place. Gave us a $10 voucher in the end, maybe as a way of apology, maybe everyone gets one. Food was decent.
