Description: New Ubin Seafood's beginnings can be traced to the offshore island of Pulau Ubin itself, where the restaurant opened in 1986 on the island's north shore. There, we had the pleasure of serving up kampong-style seafood to all who visited Ubin, developing a reputation for serving fresh, authentic and delicious seafood in an laid-back and relaxing environment. With acquisition of Pulau Ubin by the Singapore government in 1992, Ubin Seafood moved to the mainland, where we have been situated in several locations over the years (the most well known of which were the coffee shop at Commonwealth, Keppel Marina, Punggol Marina, 6th Avenue (Bukit Timah), Sin Ming industrial estate, and finally another hidden gem of a location at 63 Hillview Avenue (Bukit Batok). Here, we continue our tradition of serving our customers sumptuous and authentic Singaporean cuisine in a casual, family-friendly environment. Over the years, our culinary identity has developed and matured. Apart from the freshest seafood and traditional cze char fare, we are proud to present our own interpretation of other foods- a Singaporean-take on American, French, Italian and Indian cuisine. As such, our signature dishes include US Angus Rib-Eye Beef Steak and German-style Pork Knuckle. We were motivated to do this because it's what we, the people behind Ubin Seafood, love - and we know you will too. We look forward to welcoming you soon, and promise that it will be an unforgettable experience.

When it comes to down-to-earth prices for the best seafood in singapore - it is here - new ubin seafood at sin ming. Atmosphere is as industrial as you can get but who cares when the food is really fresh and cooked the way it is supposed to be - authentic and singaporean. Go for the white pepper crab if you have to choose only one as it has a unique aroma and taste and of course the sizzling ribeye steak with the accompanying dark rice cooked in all the juices of the fat and drippings.. YUMMY! Pang also has a selection of good chilled wines but we always go for the ice cold Erdinger ; that and fried rice and salted fish is a staple we just keep coming back for more of !

Who would think that one can get delectable Singaporean Seafood (crab, sting ray, salted fish fried rice) and a high end wine cellar (with glasses matching the varietal to boot) in an industrial estate full of auto repair shops? Well, Ubin Seafood is that place. The owner Pang is a former finance executive who clearly knows how to spoil his clientèle. You must try the BBQ steak and the accompanying fried rice!

I offered to buy a friend of mine a dinner if he would drive. He suggested New Ubin which is owned by a former schoolmate. Despite the fact that my friend is a native Singaporean and has been here many times, he still had trouble finding it, partly because the GPS couldn't find it either. It is also surprising because it is across the street from a lot of car repair shops. But what a find. It is large by local standards with huge eating areas both inside and outside. There is also an air-conditioned dining room. The food was plentiful and delicious. Among other things, we had the ribeye steak which was great. (It is cut up so you can eat it with chopsticks.) We also had a nice bottle of wine which i would not ordinarily expect. This is another exemplary of Singapore's reputation as the best place in the world for food (except maybe San Sebastian).

A bit of a hike from the beaten path to find this place, but when you get there you get a sense of discovery. It is set in the industrial zone in what may have been a car repair shop earlier. Though this is supposed to be a seafood place, the meat is surprisingly good too (we tried the steak). Even if you are not big on rice, you MUST try their fired rice, which is fried in the fat from the meats cooked there (probably unhealthy, but oh-so yummy!). Try to get a table indoors, which is air-conditioned.

Heard a lot of reviews about this restaurant esp the negatives about its overcrowding and service and the positives about its wok-hei and its ribeye steak so decided to drive to the heartlands to find out with 3 other good friends.

We ordered the following;
(1) the ribeye steak was very well done, soft, succulent and full of flavour (in fact better than some of the better steakhouses like Mortons),,and the beef lard was used to cook a free dish of beef fried rice (so - so as rice was moist whereas it should be crispy dry for fried rice). but the beef was yummy and definitely a signature.

(2) the hokkien prawn mee was robust, prawny and the stock was so delicious,,,,in fact, we had a 2nd helping of the prawn mee as we gobbled down the first helping in record time,,,,if we have to order some carbo, then this prawn mee would triumph over the fried rice.

(3) the hong kong kailan also had good wokhei, they chopped the leaves and fried with salted fish and the rest of the kailan stems were braised and then mixed together,,,,nice crunchy wholesome taste,,,,simple and nice,,,

(4) the crispy eggplant had a sourish, sweetish taste to it. First impression was good and tasty abit like those indonesian spiced drink but got a bit overwhelmed by the 4th or 5th bite,,,but good for a first taste....

(5) sambal petai,,,,the chef had taken the effort to remove the bitter bits and the petai was crunchy but the sambal was a bit lacking in fire,,,,

(6) Dont try the coffee,,,obviously no one comes here to drink coffee so coffee here worse than 3 in 1,,,,,

But come during lunch,,,,we sat in an aircon room and enjoyed good food and good service,,,weekends and dinners obviously can be a bit painful.

All in, we paid 130 and considered this to be relatively good value as the steak and beef fried rice was only 58,,,,some consider expensive but i sonsider a steal vs Mortons and the Cut.
