Singapore is a superb place to eat seafood – Singapore chilli crab is the local speciality – and at Uncle Leong Seafood in Punggol, you can enjoy the best Asian-style dishes from the deep that Singapore can offer. Their menu is known up and down the country, and their Toa Payoh location on Lorong 8 Toa Payoh is about as good as it gets. Located by the banks of the Kallang River, you can feel the nearness of the water in the food, and taste the freshness of the fish.

Get down to Lorong 8 Toa Payoh and sit down to one of their set menus to get a taste of it all.
Ordered the Chilli crab and shimmering sand crab. Both were good and I highly recommend the Shimmering Sand crab as the combination of pepper, butter and cereal was really unique and delicious. Other dishes were good as well. Service was fast too.
Good food my family enjoyed it and fast efficient service! Just had to call, order, state time of pick up and voila! Food is served.
Crab texture was excellent! $68 per kg but worth the price! Frequent customer of Uncle Leong. Been to other crab places but none comparable to Uncle Leong!
