Whampoa Keng Fish Head Steamboat on Balestier Road is immensely popular so it’s definitely best to reserve a table ahead of time.
Nice place to have fish steamboat. Popular restaurant with crowd.
Other than the must have fish hot pot, we had the nyonya sotong hot plate, salted fish pork belly and prawn paste chicken wings. Everything was really delicious, the chicken wings were crispy on the outside and juicy on the inside. We received top up of our hot pot soup more than once too, without asking... that’s great service.
Nice tasty soup base with lots of yam. Great as usual.
Great place to dine. Best steamboat fish soup we’ve tried. They do good ze char dishes too. Highly recommend to anyone who wishes to satisfy their fish soup cravings.
I was rather upset that the restaurant personnel called me to say that they have to push my reservation time back by half an hour as they are overbooked. If they can’t take so many bookings at any one time, they should not put so many timing options on the reservation. What is the purpose of making reservation if it is not adhered to? Rather disappointed that despite the customers making the requested adjustment, the personnel did not make any effort to thank or show appreciation for it. Even free peanuts or desserts would have been a great gesture for the inconvenience caused.
Advanced Reservation system is efficient and orderly at the restaurant , seated promptly. Red grouper steamboat superb, chicken dish recommended crispy yet tender inside. Warm drinks preferred and they have a few. Desserts delightful. Ate and left in 45 minutes. Not a place to dilly Manager or main usher very good service.
Basically, most of the dishes are nice..Fish is fresh, prawn paste chicken is also delicious n will recommend friends to eat at Whampoa Keng! Service is also good... when we told them the sambal kangkong was salty, they immediately took away n cooked another plate less salty! Keep up your good service!
The fish head steamboat is good but very costly. The other dishes are not too bad, but the cost is high for the venue and location. It is strange that they charge so much for zi char. Will not go back again even though the food is good. This is because I can get good zi char at one third the price.
The soup is nice and i did not feel thirsty after drinking the soup. The fish is fresh and har jiong Kai is tasty but not salty.No waiting time as I had made reservation and arrived on time.
Although a little pricey on the fish head steamboat, I really enjoyed the soup which was genuinely tasty and I didn't get that "MSG effect" afterwards. Their prawn rolls is also a winner. Will re-visit again when I get that fish soup craving.
