About Nan Hwa Fishboat

Dear diners, please be aware that non-Quandoo vouchers cannot be used in conjunction with online booking.. If you wish to use non-Quandoo vouchers, please contact the restaurant directly.

Situated just along from the heart of Singapore’s Little India, there are plenty of temples in the area – Sri Srinivasa Perumal is just across Racecourse Road – but this is a different kind of temple on Owen Road, a classic Chinese steamboat restaurant called Nan Hwa Fishboat. Established in 1927, this Farrer Park icon is perhaps the most respected eatery in Singapore for authentic brothy goodness. Nan Hwa Fishboat is famous, but for the uninitiated their fishboat is a rich broth brewed slowly over charcoal, into which the freshest Chinese pomfret, red snapper and grouper are lowered and cooked to tender perfection. You won’t find a better exponent in Singapore of traditional Chinese hotpot, so nab a table as soon as you get the chance!

Airconditioned, not overcrowded. Food is acceptable but the price for the steamboat is not very value for money, $48 for a medium size but the quantity of the fish meat is not justifiable. Don't feel thirsty after eating, so maybe no msg added.

The food is a bit bland. The soup base is thin. It The promfet is fresh. The champagne pork ribs are tender. It is packed on weekend evening. So have to wait a while even though reservation has been made.

Fish boat signature dish and oyster omelet were good. Soup can be refilled. Fish and the oysters are very fresh. Other dishes are normal. Overall experience was good. Generally better service than expected.

Unfortunately, the food was not that good. The fish was a little tough and soup very bland. Also, serving size was small and waitress was not helpful in determining size of each dish appropriate to our group; claims she's not sure of each size.
