The place and food still remains the same as when I was a little girl. No where else you can find a Cze Char place like the old days (Red House etc started in this area too out of a house like that. Used up...More

An institution of local cuisine; think of it as an upmarket Zhi char. Its had been decades since I first visited this place. Upon arrival, the restaurant was packed. Even with reservation, it does not really matter for the team of staff. A limited menu...More

The reward for a set back in time was amazing. The meal of fried squid, drunken prawns, stir fried greens and chilli crab made the experience very enjoyable. The restaurant was full of local families enjoying the abundance of delights on offer eating at very...More

This is the place that the locals would go for crabs according to my taxi driver, the place is packed, and short staffed. Just have to be a little more proactive to get the waitress attention, and if you don't want the peanuts just tell...More

A familiar haunt to those who remember the line of seafood restaurants along Upper East Coast road. The last of the Mohicans but I am so pleased the food is great. If you need mod, pristine and matching chairs, skip this place. For what it...More

Hua Yu Wee is an old-school, traditional ‘Cze Char’ (aka ‘Zi Char’ or ‘Tze Char’) stir-fry restaurant serving what many Singaporeans would consider home-style ‘comfort food’. The sort of food that Chinese grandmothers and mothers have served to generations of Singaporeans. While fundamentally Chinese, the...More

Quaint idyllic find along Upper East Coast Road. We celebrated my helper's birthday at the restaurant. Service staff were donned in batik inspired prints. Though old school but brought back fond memories of Singapore in late 70s and early 80s restaurant scene. The colonial building...More

Consistent quality of fresh ingredients and very good preparation, I have never been disappointed in the 10+ years of patronising this restaurant. My go to dishes - chilli crabs, rock lobster in black pepper, prawns (sweet sour/cereal/butter are all good), and a nice steamed fish....More
