Good value for money. Would recommend this to people definitely.
1. There was totally no social distancing. Everyone was crammed together. 2. Surprised that food/drinks can still be placed in communal areas for people to share. 3. Food was not topped up. There were more empty containers than food. The entire scene reminds me of the olden days at marine south. 4. We waited 20 minutes despite having the reservation. It seems they just accept all reservations without checking if they've got seats. It was terribly chaotic. There was only one person allocate seats and the same person to collect payment. She was confused and disoriented mostly. 5. Total bill for two was equivalent to going to Hai Di Lao, which has better service, better food, better staff, better everything. Most importantly, safe and clean.
We were there early and allowed to enter before the reservation. The food is fresh, but obviously the restaurant is understaffed, and yet they allowed more and more customers come in till they do not even have time to serve the existing customers inside the restaurant. After we were served the first few plates of meat in the beginning, the staff accidentally took back our the order list. Until my friend requested for a few times, only the staff returned it to our table. And after all, when we placed order for more meat, we waited like almost 1 and half hour, it never came. In between when we asked different staffs to check on our order, they kept on saying the food is in processed and at the end nothing came. And we saw those who came in later than us get the food that they ordered quicker than us. This happens to other tables as well, until you can see the customers need to go to the kitchen and refill the soup themselves. They also didn't refill the vegetables section, basically you just sit there, wait for 2 hours and leave the restaurant. Waste of time and not worth the money.
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.
