Expensive. Tasteless. Swill like broth This place only survives as a tourist destination. But I doubt it can rest on its laurels any longer. First and last time trying katong laksa.

With a tagline that says "famous katong laksa", i can only say it is meant for the tourists. There's taste in the soup (gravy=thick which this is not) and the sambal is spicy but not much else can be said about the quality. At 9 in the morning, the soup is just warm but i assume they serve it hot... More

Quality: Average Taste: Average Service: 'You owe them a living' Price: Average Personal opinion so please do not criticize. It ain't the same laksa anymore. Spicy yes but the taste of authentic laksa is totally off. Price is on the high side and frankly, the ingredients is seriously little. Service? Forget about service. However, no harm to try it. Opt... More

Visited 328 katong laksa@51 east coast rd. The laksa soup tasted good but there is nothing else in it besides a few pieces of fried fish cake with no prawn. Wondered if this is the way katong laksa should be but found the photo shown on the wall clearly displayed 3 prawns. It is not delivered as advertised. Besides, attitude... More

If you are travelling Singapore and you like o eat local food this is the best place you shoud try. One laksa $3 plus only. Also you can try "Ottha". Its something like dry fish. really nice. Highly recommended for travellers around the world.

Laksa was good enough in terms of topping qualities. The soup was little weak. The noodle was fine. Nasi Lemak, I had a lot better one than here. Otah was nice not too spicy. I brought my visitor friends with me to checked out this famous place.

This serves Laksa and very little else. The Laksa is delicious, but the surroundings were very basic and the service was somewhat surly.

My local friend took us to this famous Laksa place, first thing you would notice on the wall is full of celebrity photos including Gordon Ramsay. The soup base was excellent, but a too spicy for me. Noodles cut into small pieces, which I don't prefer, as it don't really feel like eating noodles.
