Ordered the pepper crab (at $90) and frankly, probably the worst crab I've had in the US or Singapore - yes, we were ripped off. Very limited English or service. What a way to start our visit in Singapore. We visited around 2:30 and they demanded payment before they served the crab. They quickly backed down when I told them... More

The price is considered cheap within Boat Quay region. Variety choices of China cuisine and taste good. View is also nice if you can get the table with river view.

Although it is a small restaurant and looks a bit cheap, the meals can be highly recommended. Especially food with "spicy" in the name are made in very delicious ways (hot and garlic). The food is way more than the pictures show - only order one course per person maximum. We had little misunderstandings regarding water (hot instead of sparkling... More

must try the chilly noodles there. The prawns were to die for . Big jumbo prawns. Excellent veg food as well. Had some yum coconut water. Reach early as these restaurants shut by 11 PM.

An elaborated menu with numbers and pictures for respective dishes makes life simpler before you could order. Point out to the steward what you want and thats it..We... More

It will be pleasantly pleased with the quality of food served here. Authentic and delicious. Their menu have items that are not easily found in other Chinese restaurants in Singapore! Portions are big and of good value. Recommend the "pulled noodles".

Quick summary below. I know this type of food very well and I will guarantee that all those who praise this restaurant in their reviews have no idea. Or alternatively when I went there, the chef was sick, but this is not my problem. + Great Chinese food theme, in theory (but needs good execution) + Good location on boat... More

In a beautiful location overlooking Clarke Quay, this serves authentic (and very tasty) Chinese, particularly Xian, cuisine. Definitely worth a visit!!

Staying in The Quays

Neighbourhood Profile
The Quays
From Marina Bay, a walk along Singapore River will take you through the three Quays of the city, each offering a very different atmosphere. Boat Quay features historical sites and a buzzing riverfront vibe. Clarke Quay caters to the party crowd, while Robertson Quay appeals to the leisurely wanderer. Weekends at Robertson Quay and Martin Road also give a peek into the lives of expats in Singapore, as the riverfront teems with joggers, dog walkers, and those getting their caffeine fix over brunch or enjoying a burger and a beer. No matter what you’re up for, the three Quays have something to keep you happy, day or night.
