Overall the food is good, though did not like the pepper crab too much. The place serves good shaanxi cuisine which is on the spicier side.

It is surprising to find a niche Northwest Chinese style noodle shop at Boat Quay. The meal is served in a container usually seen in a buffet restaurant. The ingredients are stewed chicken, potatoes and onions with a mild spicy flavour. The noodle, finger wide and thick, is added later to the stew. A simple yet delicious dish worthy a... More

Happened upon this place and loved the la mian! Sauces are slightly oily. Portions are well sized and great value. The spiciness level was very good although a bit challenging in Singapore heat at times. Seating wise is a bit of a pain - typical Chinese style where you have a meal and eavesdrop on your neighbours conversations!

If you love Chinese food ,especially from north of China , you will love this restaurant. The look, the feel, the service and very important the food were very much like you would find in Xian. To be clear this is not 5 star restaurant! Not 4 either... Some of the folks in our group were speaking Chinese and that... More

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.

Located at 56 Boat Quay, go and grab a table at this chinese restaurant and there will be 1 woman out of the 20-30 staff who can reply to you in English. 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
