Nothing soothes the soul quite like a bowl of authentic Singaporean laksa. At King’s Laksa Steamboat, they’re serving up the national dish in a hot pot, and at prices that you won’t believe. Located on Teck Chye Terrace close to where Boundary Road crosses Upper Serangoon Viaduct, this restaurant finds itself among a variety of shophouses selling wares and an array of different foods. Have a laksa soup base and another of a milder flavour, and take your pick from over 80 ingredients at its all-you-can-eat steamboat. The choice is endless, so book ahead to see why King’s Laksa Steamboat is, quite simply, the talk of the town.
Singaporeans love their laksa as much as their steamboat and thankfully at King’s Laksa Steamboat, they get to combine both. This unassuming restaurant within a row of shophouses on Teck Chye Road is often overlooked on first glance, but local pundits know that it packs a flavourful punch. When it comes to insider secrets you’ll want to listen up, because this is where Serangoon residents go for more than just the beloved national dish, served up in a hot pot, along with a staggering 80 ingredients to pick and choose from.
You certainly can’t go wrong with the signature laksa broth at King’s Laksa Steamboat, though we suggest balancing out its fiery and creamy notes with a lighter chicken or herbal broth for the second soup option. Various cuts of meat are yours for the taking – the sliced pork belly is a firm favourite – while seafood options range in mussels, prawns and flower crab, to name a few. You can, of course, get your laksa fix by recreating the humble dish in your steamboat: just select tau pok, hard-boiled quail eggs and thick bee hoon and throw them into the pot to see the magic happen. With free flow beverages and ice cream included in the price of your buffet, King’s Laksa Steamboat offers plenty of bang for your buck, so why not bring your friends and family down to this Serangoon hotspot? As is the case with all popular restaurants in Singapore, bookings are essential.
the food is amazing and the soup base is good. We would appreciate if the temperature of the aircon could be lower cause the whole place is like a sauna.
Love the food and worth the wait. will go again when there is chance and recommend more friends along too! Hopefully there are more deals.
Love the Laksa Steamboat! Ingredients are very fresh with wide variety.
Good service with very fresh meats and vegetables. The cooked food are tasty too. Laksa broth boiled with generous dried shrimps has improved from my last visit. Highly recommended.
Steamboat/Hotpot buffet at $25.80++ for weekday dinner. Service was excruciatingly slow, & the hot plate took so long to boil the soup. Perhaps it's their way of preventing any burnt pots (which, btw, if it happens, you're apparently charged $9). Once it got going, though, it was all good. You can choose 2 flavours for your soup base, since the hotpot is split down the middle. Went with Laksa 叻沙 (their specialty) & Herbal 药材. Other choices: Chicken 鸡汤, Seafood 海鲜, Ma La 麻辣. The Laksa was quite special & the herbal taste in the Herbal soup is fairly strong. I liked both, although I felt very thirsty after my meal. 😁 You order meat, seafood & noodles from an order sheet, & help yourselves to the vegetables at the self-service buffet counter near the entrance. There is a cooked food section on the order sheet, but our orders came about 1 hour later (wat), which was hilarious. Cooked food = Golden Mantou, Chicken Nuggets, Fried Tofu, Chicken Wings, Spring Rolls, Fried Fish Balls, Potato Wedges, Luncheon Meat. Dined in a group of 4 but was charged for 5 pax. Only realized this the next day (I didn't foot the bill) & contacted them. They realized their mistake & offered vouchers to compensate, but we opted for a cash refund instead. Not good that they over-charged us, but good that they apologized & offered to do a refund. 🌬 Air-conditioned seats only 💻 Accepts reservations - Quandoo & Chope 👃 You WILL smell like food when you leave
We went on a weekday dinner to avoid crowds. The overall experience is good with all fresh ingredients and we can also order our finger foods so it's served piping hot! Their chicken wings is a must to order. Laksa broth is yummy but the herbal soup broth kinda disappointed. Its not what we expected of the usual herbal soup. The soup is kinda salty and the taste so so only. At the end of our dinner, we being offered free soya pudding even though there is free flow of ice creams.
A bit over rated. Their fried food is a lot nicer than the stuff for the steamboat. We took the laksa and seafood soup bases. Laksa one can be a little thicker. Seafood soup base was nice and went well with the veg. The chicken wings and fried luncheon meat are a must order. The meat and veg don't seem to be very fresh. Staff were friendly and tried their best to cater to everyone even though they were so busy. Once is enough for me. Won't be going back again.
Back at King's Laksa Steamboat again within a month. Really like the broth and the fried wings / tofu. A little short handed this time round though. Had to wait some time before we're served.
Staff were attentive and helpful. They even said that we could eat tang yuan for free because we patronised it on Dong Zhi! Also liked the various options available for steamboat. As we came to try out the laksa steamboat, we tried it along with herbal soup steamboat. The place wasn't too crowded, so we needn't be distracted by any noise.
Soup of laksa is great. Other varities of soup are also worth trying. Meats are cut well and more fresh. Vegetables varites are limited. Choices for steamboat ingredients do have many. Lots of ice cream choices. Overall their stuffs are much more than some famous restaurants. Worth the price. Drinks also lots of choices too. And don't forget to ask waitress for pudding. As this dessert is keep inside their kitchen unless being ask for.😉
