If you don't mind paying S$80 a kilo for, what to be fair is excellent crab, and then being asked to pay extra for each serviette, then eat here by all means. Beware that the small basket of fried mushroom that is gratuitously placed on your table when you first sit down, is NOT free! It will cost you three... More

This restaurant had got two branches located at 414 Geylang Road and Esplanade. If you looking for ambience, air-conditioned and service, go to Esplanade. Signature dish: Chilli Crab. In my view, it's the best and you must not miss it! Lots of Chilli Crab has got more of tomatoes taste than a balanced of chilli and tomatoes flavour. To me,... More

No Signoboard Seafodd isn't a fancy seafood restaurant. It's rather more like an open fish market where you can eat freshly cooked fishes, shells, etc. The service is quick and efficient (don't expect too much smiles though), the menu features a wide range of dishes, the ingredients are fresh, the prawns are awesome, the scallops as well, and the prices...

We went on a workday and luckily didn't have to queue up which is usually very long during weekends. The couple that established this restaurant literally introduced crab to the inhabitants of Singapore as a delicacy. They didn't have enough money to put a signboard in the beginning until their customer base was built. During that time it was difficult... More

This restaurant is referred by many people for the famous chilli and white crab .Don't waste your time and money there are much better place in Singapore to indulge into the famous crab wagon. The ambience is like one circus tent, some of the seating are partially outdoors, no frill table’s some laminex some timber, and no tablecloths. The service... More

Taken by an ex-pat friend and loved it. Highly recommend the fried baby squid, chilli crab and sweet and sour prawns. Crab was expensive and staff were horrified when we couldn' t eat it all, they kept offering take away options! Would definitely go back another time

Very popular as food is great. Famous for its crabs. Pricey but a must: Chilli and White Pepper are my favourite. The place is not fancy but the seafood is fresh and good quality. Location is in middle of old Singapore and popular with locals.

No Signboard Seafood How was the name conceived? It was a name given by our customers! Back in the late 1970s, we started our stall at the Mattar Rd Hawker Centre without a signboard. Since cooking had been my forte, Ah Kaw and myself decided to make it our means of livelihood. I concocted the recipe for the white pepper... More

Staying in Geylang

Neighbourhood Profile
Only a short journey from Singapore’s sparkling and polished city centre, Geylang is a world away. Here in one of the least touristy areas of Singapore, visitors are privy to an unfiltered glimpse of Singapore life. On Sunday afternoons, migrant workers gather in Geylang to let off steam after a tough week. At the eastern end of Geylang Road, families and friends happily enjoy picnics. By contrast, at the western end, a more colourful side of Singapore can be seen, as street workers mingle with Sunday revelers in outdoor coffee shops. Take a friend, grab a beer and a local meal (frog porridge, perhaps?), and settle in to enjoy the show.
