From the name you know it’s somewhat related to Singapore cuisine. This place took over the previous Lau Pa Sak restaurant and started not too long ago. I was there to have some Singapore food but realized they changed hands. Nevertheless, it’s still Singapore food! But isn’t 东海岸 known as East Coast Park? Hmmm…
Taste: Pretty close to home and love the fish!
Portion: Above average.
Service: Not enthusiastic. Must remind them to top up water even though I placed the empty cup beside the aisle.
Ambience: Comfy and you won’t come out smelling like what you ate.
Price: RMB93 in total. Around S$19.50.
RTE: I’ll probably would if I’m in Shanghai again! Haven’t try all their extensive menu offerings!
My first time here after finding out from weibo the location of their restaurant. Heard so much about it and finally found some time to visit this place. Of course with my diet going on right now, this place is not very healthy for me. Nevertheless, I was buying dinner for my staff who is leaving and at least there’s someone there to share the food with me.
The restaurant is located at a pretty centralised location where many expats are staying. I spotted Fraser Suites just beside this neighborhood center. Took a cab from my place to there is around RMB36 (S$7.50) and I believe it was more than 10km. found the restaurant at level 2 of the center but was full house. So had to go to ground level to their another shop space which they rented just opposite one supermarket/bakery/cafe. See my reviews below the pics:
Taste: Taste overall is pretty authentic Singaporean food I must say.
Service: Very good. Boss is there to make sure all customers are happy and attended to. Staff are trained to go around filling up water in empty glasses. Cooking time is all within 10-20mins.
Ambience: Pretty ok… aircondition can be a bit more cooler during summer. Pretty comfy though.
Price: Total bill came up to around RMB325. The crab is a little pricey though for that size but like I said before, in China, Singapore/Malaysian food is not cheap as compared to back home.
This is one of the outlets that offers Singapore cuisine. Hence when Singaporeans or Malaysians miss their hometown food, they will come to this place. There is another place opened in a secluded place out of malls like this one, which I have yet to visit. This was my first time here and to be honest, food is not bad, service sucks big time.
Taste: Pretty good. Taste pretty close to back home.
Service: Really sucks big time. Male captain can stare are me standing at the entrance and after 5 seconds, look away. So many staff, service so slow. They don’t bother to top up water for the customers. Cooking time also very slow for the hot plate tofu. Took more than 30 mins to serve.
Ambience: As it is located in an island of the mall, the aircondition is really bad. But at least they should have fans cooling the place. They don’t. Hence I was uncomfortable throughout.
Price: Quite pricey but as per all Singapore food overseas, they are never cheap. Total bill with drinks around RMB150.
Most Singaporeans base in Shanghai would know this place. Apparently the oldest Singapore food restaurant in Shanghai. However the location is a little far from the city where most Singapore expats would stay. But, when the crave for authentic Singapore food sets in, taking a cab down to this place is justifiable! Check out the food below!
Taste: I must say it’s as good as what we eat in Singapore. Unlike some claim to be Singapore/Malaysian food but taste not authentic. Thumbs up for catering to the craves us Singaporeans/Malaysians have while working in Shanghai!
Ambience: Pretty comfy with the extension on the left side. Aircon/heater is adjusted to appropriate levels during winter/summer periods. Best thing is, you won’t smell like what they serve when you get out of the restaurant.
Service: Not bad. At least you don’t get crappy service like some other restaurants around Shanghai. The staff are also trained the local terms like Kopi-C and Teh Tarik!
Price: Average per person is around RMB50-80. Depends on how much you can eat also. Cheaper than the other counterparts in Shanghai. Don’t compare to prices in Singapore of course!
RTE: Not base in Shanghai now, so no chance to go there. Maybe will find time to feature the Suzhou Singapore food restaurant soon!
Location: See 2nd pic. Cab there would be the best option. Parking is limited and subway station is not near.
