Hua Yu Wee Seafood is probably the last remaining seafront seafood restaurant still standing in Singapore. The rest have all closed down or relocated elsewhere. Even the sea has moved away due to reclamation works. The sea is now at least 1 km away, with the East Coast Expressway in between on reclaimed land. Few years down the road, Bayshore... More

A quick UBER ride and we were into the Chilli crab, black pepper crab and salted egg crab, some bok choy and tiger beer. FANTASTIC. Love local... More

I have been here several times but stopped because of the wide food choices in Singapore. However I was pleasantly reminded of their excellent seafood at my last visit. A must try is the fried baby squid and of course the chilli and black pepper crabs. The service has improved tremendously since I last visited although it would help to... More

Brought some overseas friends there yesterday. Valet was quick to help park the car. The restaurant was very very crowded and over filled both indoors and outdoors dining areas. Although I placed a reservation 3 days earlier, there was nothing reserved and 2 other parties were in the same predicament. The staff was visibly overwhelmed.... Finally got a table after... More

We ordered black pepper crab , the crab are so fresh ! It's really the best crab that I ever had in Singapore! But the service was a little bit at downside as staffs in different uniform only can provide certain service. Like only can place order with staff in red uniform even though the staff in blue uniform is... More

We had this practice of going for crabs during cny. This year we chose Hua Yu Wee seafood restaurant. It does not disappointed us. Though it served set menu during cny the staff is flexible to change items for us if you wish to swop or change the dish. As it is cny, the restuarant is packed with customers, so... More

My family & I have been dining at this place for many years and I have also brought friends from overseas here a couple of times but my recent visit was a HUGE disappointment, both food and service! We there just last week for an 8 course+ desert (pre-CNY dinner for 8-10 pax) and few of the dishes were really... More

Went there again last Sat for dinner with high school friends from Singapore, Kuala Lumpur and Shanghai. The car park was limited but there's valet parking. Only a few tables were available in the aircon restaurant converted from an old single storey bungalow. Most of the tables were laid out in the big covered seaside backyard. It was quite crowded...

Been coming to this restaurant for 20 years. The food is always top quality. Service can be a bit hit and miss but the staff work really hard and are doing their best under the circumstances. Free corkage makes it very good value and it's good value anyway!
