This is a great spot, sort of a hidden gen on Rangoon Road. The food is excellent and the price very reasonable. Definitely try the sambal pomfet. It's excellent and probably my favorite dish on their menu. The black pepper crayfish is also really good.”
Decided to visit this place for its well known Balachen Sole Fish.Went there together with some colleagues and I must say that the trip was a splendid one!Tried out the other side dishes like Deep Fried Sotong and Kang Kong which were no inferior.Strong recommends this place!Its worth a visit."
Easily my best find in 2016. Old Lai Huat is a small place on Rangoon Road. And it's practically empty during lunch. Although I'm told it gets packed for dinner. The good is so good, I'm surprised it doesn't attract the lunch time crowd. I had the sambal fish, sweet and sour pork, duck soup and sambal kang kong. All equally good. Three of us ate for $60. Can't recommend this place enough."
If you want to experience Singapore’s local scene, this is it. This is the ultimate comfort food Singaporeans miss when they go overseas for long periods of time. This restaurant started in 1990 as a little shack by the side of the road and has now gotten an upgrade to an air-conditioned restaurant. The menu serves Chinese dishes cooked with local spices where prawn paste is a key ingredient. Best eaten with a bowl of white rice. Order the prawn paste chicken, sambal fried fish, fried mussels with egg and chilli sauce and the crispy baby squids! Don’t forget a bowl of white rice!!”

Great place to have classic Zhi Char dishes that are well cooked and reasonably priced. Even comes with air con rooms to allow a comfortable environment to enjoy the delicious balacan promfet."

Must try the Balacan Fish, fish meat & balachan sauce is moist not dry. Pepper Crayfish is just so sweet! Better to visit on weekdays as it is not as crowded. Weekends is standing room only for dinner. They are opened for lunch as well!"
