Whampoa Keng in Singapore is the first stop anyone should make for a taste of traditional Asian cuisine. The restaurant started in the 1990s as a small fish stall in Guangzhou, China, before quickly growing into the award-winning chain of fine dining establishments it is today. Once you find your way to the homely establishment on Rangoon Road, you’re in for a culinary experience with an extensive menu featuring classics you know and love as well as lesser known traditional dishes. It would be a shame to visit Whampoa Keng and without sampling some of the fresh seafood dishes that made them famous in the first place like the pomfret fish head steamboat. You won’t be disappointed.
Excellent food and service! Be prepared to pay for good food!
My favourite restaurant! Pricing is a little steep but good quality food and service!
Food is excellent, wait is so short and service is on auto-pilot!
Excellent service & delicious food. The marmite pork ribs & egg prawns were delicious. The soup was the main draw & we had lots of refills. We would definitely come again.
The waitress recommended us to order a set. Consisting of a fish steamboat, chicken, prawn, pork ribs dishes and dessert, it was value for money. I was impressed by the waitress' honesty. When she walked past our table, she asked how was everything and observed that the prawn paste chicken served to us was of a small portion instead of medium portion stated in the menu. She apologised for it and subsequently served the rest of the portion. Great place to visit for delicious fish steamboat with unlimited refills of soup!
Food is as usual good but my hubby thought the soup was not as tasty as before . What spoilt the dining experience was a man dressed shabbily , came in carrying a sign that wrote that he was mute and deaf , went table by table begging for money . It was only after 15 minutes that the lady boss told him he was not allowed to beg in the vicinity of the restaurant . Surprisingly , the ‘deaf and mute ‘ beggar could hear her and left shortly .
We loved the healthy, heart-warming fish head / fish slice hot pot with lots of vegetables. Top that with their delicious chir zhar, we had a delectable experience. We brought our own wine and the service staff obliged with wine glasses. They were are attentive to top up the soup for the hot pot. Great place to have a table full of friends.
It was my first time to Whampoa Keng Fish Head Steamboat - Rangoon Road. I like the fish head steamboat and the prawn paste fried chicken. Service was pretty good too.
The soup and fish is deliciously good, definitely one of the better ones I have tried. Can’t speak the same for the chicken though, wouldn’t rate chicken (招牌 and 金龙) as the best in town, but taste good. The salted fish pork belly also passable with room for improvement. Salted squid and Sambal Lala are also highly recommended. Will definitely return to try something else.
Food is serve fast and hot. Service is ok. Billing service can be improved as we asked for bill but bill didn’t not arrive and was instead told by a lady if we could settle our bill and vacate our seats.
