Restaurant able to customise cooking style to meet customers preference.
Good food and value for money. Worth and will go back.
I love their food and their drinks. Definitely going back there soon again.
We had creamy butter crabs and it is very good! If only the sauce is more. Service is good as well. However, the wait for the crabs is a bit long
We booked at 7pm but were only seated at 7.30. Ordered our food immediately upon sitting but the first dish only came after 8pm (more than 1 hour after our booking). Food was decent and enjoyable but the portions were small even when we ordered medium/large. If not for fave voucher used, it would've been expensive considering the small portions. (value for money only with fave voucher) It seems like the M or L size is not worth it because the price increase from S is a lot but the portions do not increase to the same scale.
Seafood was fresh, selection was good and prices are definitely reasonable. However, the location is a little difficult to find/find a carpark (I was lucky to get a spot right in front of the restaurant). In addition, the taste can be improved (used to be better, however it may be because of the peak CNY crowd). To be fair, it tastes good, but I remember it to taste better.
A popular family restaurant which is usually crowded on weekends. Be prepared to wait a bit longer for the food. There could be inconsistency in the cooking when they are busy. Overall the experience is good and the location serves customers in the nearby vicinity wif a good choice for dining. Oh yeah, don't miss the crab promo which is value for $ if you love crabs. Enjoy!
Friendly staff. Entertained our queries regarding CNY catering and acceded to our last minute requests. Food was delicious. However the peng chai that was catered had turnips n carrots slightly under cook . Which was such a pity as it would have been a great finalé with the Essence of the whole dish soaked up in those root vegetables. Overall the flavours were good.
It's our first trial of Yi Jia's chilly crabs and I would say that they are well-cooked and yummy. The crabs are reasonably priced as well. Hope Yi Jia can remain at this pricing. It would be good for customers to feast out easily, if the shell of the crabs are smashed a bit before served. Overall, the crabs is a must try!
The restaurant was very noisy & crammed, not for people who needs serenity 😊 The food is pretty decent, creamy salted egg crabs is ok though a little bit on the runny side, Chili crab is passable, crab beehoon is pretty good. Fish head steamboat is also passable & the melon prawn ball is good. Price is reasonable. Overall I wud rate 6.5-7/10
