Reviewed 10 September 2016

Chinatown Seafood is an open sided restaurant in Chinatown' Pagoda Street, offering a wide range of seafood - crab, squid, clams, prawns, lobsters, and fish - and other Chinese food.

It's specialty is large mud crabs, which can be done with chili, black pepper, ginger, or black bean sauce. Prices are seasonal.

The only complaint I have about this restaurant is that our waitress seemed more interested in playing with her cell phone than looking after us.

We spent a very enjoyable hour here, right opposite the Chinatown Heritage Centre, having lunch today, people watching along the busy Pagoda road. Prompt and friendly service, large bottles of Tiger beer at reasonable prices, and the food.....we had chicken Satays - 10 - a huge portion of sweet & sour pork with all the trimmings, and seafood fried rice, plus a couple of beers and some water. All for under $60. Best value meal so far here. Fast food but good food. Recommended.

Happened by this restaurant wandering through Chinatown. Ordered the Chili Crab with fried buns and Tiger Beer. Excellent meal and tasty. More expensive than McDonald's but worth the splurge.
