7 or so years ago we lived at Tanah Mera but it was only chatting to a cab driver one evening that I actually heard of Big Eater. The driver said it was the best Chilli Crab. We went there and yes, very good indeed. We are back in Singapore for the first time in 7 years and visited again.... More

Alone or in groups. Great lunch deals good value for money Friendly staff. Short waiting times. Sad that they don't have any wine list.

The salted eggs crab is the best! I will eat this every month!! I am craving for it again. The pork ribs are also good, but hope that it can come in bigger ribs. The prawn cake is crispy and fresh too!

We like week nights as its not crowded & parking is available + free. Many big tables available & lots of seating. Food was average, service touch & go. Not as friendly as before - more of the bored look.

Do you not think it is a little ridiculous that you charge for water on a per cup basis? Charging for water EVEN ONCE is more than ridiculous as it is - when your restaurant is charging north of $60 a fish. How much money can your company earn by CHARGING FOR EACH CUP OF WATER? I'm not even talking... More

The three of us came here for dinner at 5:30 pm on a Sunday evening; only one other table was occupied. We enjoyed the salted egg crab; it was fresh and favourful (small, costs us S$44). We did not quite like the Pine Nut Tong Po Rou (small, costs S$18), Hokkien Noodles lack 'wok hei' (medium, costs S$10), although the... More

It's so called signature dish the KL hokkien noodle is simply a let down. More like noodle swimming in dark sauce. Over rated , over priced! Hor Fun is also way below average. Any hawker centre zhi char stall is easily better.

I love love love it here! Excellent and delicious food! Chili Crab and Cereal Prawns are perfect to my liking. Their fried rice is also yummy! I'd definitely be back here when I go back to Singapore!

Been to this restaurant a number of times and I must say the quality of food is good. Simple settings but pricing is really competitive. A slightly upmarket tze char outlet!
