Why Roland Restaurant is special ?

The restaurant was known for five dishes which everyone ordered when they went to eat there. These were the chilli crab, tau you prawns, crispy baby squid, cockles with chilli and the seafood hor fun. In case you were wondering, Mdm Cher was also the creator of the familiar Deep Fried Baby Squid and also the You Char Kway stuffed with sotong paste which was created together with their chef.


What should you order: Chili crab, Crab with Bee Hoon soup , fried mantous, fried soon hock (my dad loves this), crispy baby squid, clams, homemade tofu and spinach with egg 3-ways, The Tau You Prawns (Soy Sauce Prawns), Crispy baby squid and crispy crullers combo, homemade beancurd, and the mango desserts.

Tips for you

  • The restaurant was obviously struggling to cope with a near full house because it was difficult to get the attention of an order taker plus the food took a long time to arrive.
    Service
  • if you adore crab roe - go for female crab and if you prefer meaty crab - go for male crab. Do not hesitate to ask level of spiciness to be adjusted for your chili crab
    Food
  • This is a good place for families as the space is huge for young infants and kids to run around and expend their energy.
    Environment
  • It is close to the beach in the East Coast so you can plan for the meal as part of a weekend or family event.
    Things nearby
  • You should call in advance to make a reservation and let them know what you'll order
    Reservation
  • This restaurent is located on top of a public car park inside public housing estate.

Can life get better than chilli crab and tiger beer? Best I have ever had and with 800 gm of crab I did not go away hungary.

Where to get good chili crabs??? Whenever family members or friends ask us about Chili Crabs, we'll unanimously agree - Roland!We love bringing our families here to satisfy our crab cravings. Because it's that good, we'll usually call in advance to make a reservation and let them know what we'll order to ensure we have the seafood we ordered. Despite the location, my family will drive all the way/take public transport to the East to have our feast.What we enjoy and usually order? Chili crab, Crab with Bee Hoon soup (my mother-in-law loves this), fried mantous, fried soon hock (my dad loves this), crispy baby squid, clams, homemade tofu and spinach with egg 3-ways. Their pork ribs are good too - soft and succulent!What we appreciate? The friendly and efficient staff. You'll usually find the boss and his son at work during weekends. This shows their dedication to their business and customers. One of our crabs did not arrive even came after we finished our dinner and so we alerted the boss, who personally went to the kitchen to check! He came back to our table to see if everything was alright. Good service even from their elderly staff - they are always happy to take our family photos after a good meal.I'll definitely recommend Roland to anyone who is looking for good and reasonably priced crabs :D Looking forward to my next visit!

This is not a cheap restaurant, but the quality is superb. We had crisp Fried Baby Sqid - delicious. 1/2 a duck (as good as in Beijing). 1 Crab - the sauce was superb. This would have been enough for 3, we were only 2

Family and I frequent this place for its chili crabs. One of the best in Singapore IMO. Typical neighbourhood restaurant with average ambiance and service. Convenient location too. Overall, fuss-free nicely priced dinner!

I have always wanted to try the Chilli crab that started all Chilli crabs but no chance till now! My best friends returned home from overseas and demanded to fulfill their Chilli crabs need. So I suggested to try Roland Restaurant, I mean they DID claim that they are the originator!! As the star dish of the night, I must say that their Chilli crab is indeed better than most I have eaten. This is because many restaurants cater to foreigners' taste buds and scale down their Chilli-ness to tomato sweet. Their sauce is thick with a hint of tomato sweet and yet still packed with even Chilli punch! Awesome!!!! The crabs themselves were fresh and meat was juicy and firm. Another star of the night has to be the Salted Egg Crab with yam. It's really salted egg sauce that's fried into the crab and they tossed in some yam fritters to give the dish extra crispiness, crunch and flavor!!! We had many other dishes and all beautifully done. As my best friend said at the end of the meal, "Roland knows how to do it right". The meal is not cheap but we had Sea Bass and drunken prawns and Broccoli with Scallops so it's rather worth the cost. Definitely bringing my family to try.
