Singapore is a crab-eating paradise – this is the land that gave the world chilli crab – and at House of Seafood, you can experience some of the best that the city-state has to offer. They have opened a few locations across Singapore since they began their adventure in 2008, and their restaurant on Upper Serangoon Road is among the best. Just a short walk from the station, in the Upper Serangoon Shopping Centre, visitors to this corner of the island are guaranteed a Chinese feast, with underwater delights all over the menu.
Chinese food is superb in Singapore, and a key reason behind that is the prevalence of superb seafood in Chinese cooking. An emphasis on all things underwater, combined with the proximity of the whole of Singapore to the sea, ensures that the ingredients that go into the dishes are always fresh. House of Seafood on Upper Serangoon Road, in the central shopping mall between Serangoon station and Kovan station, is an award-winning location for seafood with a menu that is designed with the fruits of the sea in mind.
Seafood comes in many forms, and the way that they cook it in China is up there with the best. With the Chinese population of Singapore noted for their love of seafood, it isn’t surprising that House of Seafood in Serangoon is locally popular. Their set menus take in the full scope of authentic Chinese dishes: shark’s fin soup, Singapore chilli crab and huge array of lobster choices, seafood enthusiasts could do a lot worse than to head over to Upper Serangoon Road and chow down.
Nice food, we order 2.6kg of crab and cooked in 2 flavour which is chili crab and salted egg crab. Food order and ready very fast too. We enjoy our dinner so much. Thanks for the good service. Thumb up!!
Friendly and patience crew with good recommendations. Very attentive to customer. Fast servicing. Food order was nice. Will revisit again for dinner soon. Worth it.
I found that the crabs was fresh, good cooking and made the crab really yummy, and their service is pretty fast. Parking is easy here, just take the lift to the 3rd floor. Lots of sitting. They have some groupon offer, so do check before going.
Great service, the waitress was friendly and helpful. She even remembered us from last time we were there! Really happy with the food and location. The black pepper crab was delicious.
This restaurant is tugged in a little corner of the building, if there are no signboards around, I would have missed it. There were no much crowd as it's a weekday. Good and prompt service, waitresses are attentive. Food was served promptly (as soon as) as order was sent so I hope they are not prepared so way in advance. They are famous for their black pepper crab, it tasted ok but not the best that I've tasted so far though. Serving is quite generous for most dishes. Overall, it was a good eating experience.
Food is delicious but portion is really small. Medium sized prawn only comes with 7-8 prawn balls. Used groupon voucher for dinner. 2 crabs and we were charged 1.7kg for it. Based on experience, the weight is at most 1.3kg for the 2 crabs as it is quite small. Didnt see how the weight the crabs so quite hard to dispute over it. We asked for plain water and it is charged at 30 cents per cup. Non-refillable somemore. Dont think will visit again.
Awesome service & good food. The staffs were very attentive & recommended some of the nicest dish in the restaurant. The food was value for money but the only downside was that the air con is switched off after 8 plus as we felt that was quite warm. Still, I will be back again! Very happy with the food & Service
Service wise is good. Food wise is pretty so, so especially their chilli crab is too watery and pretty tasteless as compared to last time. For the crab weight, they will just charged you the maximum charges but for sure, what been serve is much smaller and lighter as what they charged. *** Advise to those ordering crabs... Might want to follow them to choose and see the crabs weight. If not sure been short-charged...
We ordered one chili crab dish and found that it was not really fresh. The two claws seemed to be from different crabs with marked difference in texture of the meat too. When we enquired, we were given dubious answer like sometimes when cooking that causes a difference then could be crab was injured. Unlike before there are no longer visible tanks of crabs and numbers on the crab to prove that the cooked crab was the crab chosen. It is sad that one of my favorite restaurants have since deteriorated in standards to such that offers Groupon deals and serves food that is substandard. From the 3 occupied tables on a Friday night, it is clear what the problem is. Food quality is key and their signature dish is done wrong! I doubt I will ever return again.
Food prices were expensive but the overall quality of the food was average. Didn't mind that the crabs given to us were smaller as we used vouchers, but the taste was only so-so. However, what I didn't understand was that there were no expiry dates on my vouchers but apparently was told, just as my family and I were done eating and was about to pay and leave, that they had stopped accepting these vouchers. Luckily I had checked with the waitresses regarding the vouchers validity before I ordered the food and told the cashier it was confirmed by their waitresses earlier. Now I'm unsure if I would still be able to use my vouchers again in future.
