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.
Reservation was easy, near to MRT station. Ordered the fish steamboat and it never disappoints!! Will come back soon!
Service was prompt and food was served quickly. Food was good and fresh, soup was refillable and still tasted great, plenty of fish was given.
We're regulars here. Love the food. Service quality depends on how busy the crowd is. The people are generally nice people. Order the prawn paste fried chicken and the cereal prawn - love it!
Good traditional ambience. Nice food. Love the fish head steamboat especially the soup. Traditional prawn row also great. Nice nice nice nice nice nice nice.
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!
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.
It was peak hours so restaurant was packed and noisy . Food was as usual , good but pity no more roast chicken available as it was sold out . Still prefer the red grouper to pomphret . Needed to wait a while for the food though .
Ordered the lunch set for 3-4 pax. Food was good. Fish was fresh and the soup was delicious. The servers were very attentive. Refilled the soup promptly.
Great food. Extremely tasty soup and fresh grouper. My only complaint is that the quantity was a tad small for the family. Otherwise recommended for sure!
Wish they still have the seafood combo for steamboat . Thought that the price for salted egg york prawn was a tad too high for a Zi Char place .
