If you are not in for a buffet. My recommendation is the steamboat stall at the basement of parkway. The chilli is amazing.

My last trip to Paradise On Earth 2 months ago, I feel their menu has changed. They removed a few items like the Quail eggs and luncheon meat on buffet menu.

How much can quail egg and luncheon meat cost and how much of these can 1 pax eat?

Price increase by a dollar, items removed.
Not going to go there anymore. I also noticed crowd has dwindled at Paradise on Earth. Last time I had to book for a place, that day I went only 3 tables of customers.
What I hate is a restaurant can increase price and yet remove items, then what's the point of us paying more and getting less? I rather they increase $5 more, we get better items on the menu. Even the beef taste hard even if i eat it raw, can't even see the marble lines on it.

I rather go Coca now. Coca I pay more, seafood also more fresh than theirs. Pork, Beef, Chicken, also more tenderised and tasty.

As for those along geylang and beach road those 15.90 steamboat, there is no need to taste these yucky ones. Hygiene lousy, food not so fresh, still have to self take, non-aircon....

Next door Tao's is same boss as Ju Ju. They are the pioneer restaurants way there long before POMO took over development from Lum Chan and redevelopment was done

There is one more steamboat restaurant there, heard from a friend, the owner is TCS actor Terence Cao. He paid for the buffet for 2, had to pay more for the soup, told me $20+ for the soup base. Total all in $80+

I told him, if going pay $80+, then might as well go M Hotel eat the steamboat buffet. Also $40+ per pax. At least hotel pay more have better ambience. Food there also quite fresh

Tian Tian Huo Guo at Tan Quee Lan Street!! Where can you find ultimate steamboat buffet at just $18++ with free flow of crabs, fish and prawns? Quality food minus the quantity of cheapo food.

Actually, many steamboat places now serve crabs, fish, prawns unlimited.
It is the matter of what kind of crab, what kind of fish or what type of prawns.

I would recommend Coca too.

Airconditioned, just order what you want, plates are served by them, no issue of unhygienic places, the chilli is nice.

I agree with earthyblue on those places at Beach Road/Geylang.

No offence to anyone who prefers cheaper steamboats.

But, Quail eggs and luncheon meat missing from menu, doesnt bother me.

The lala + cockles + fish is already very fresh.

No idea what r u nitpicking abt 2 cheapo items missing.

I even told me to give me 4 servings of fish on 1 plate they also ok. flexible.

On my last visit, I purposely walk to the new outlet, only 2 tables filled.
Many friends I recommended to said Paradise standard has drop slightly and price increase. They rather go Tian Tian as its more accessible and centralised.

What if I say lala and cockles doesn't bother me?
We cannot say things like this and say 2 cheapo items missing. Vegetables and meat also very cheapo too.

Price increase and you reduce the variety. When Paradise on Earth first opened in Katong, I have been a regular patron there. I slow down my visits based on 2 reasons.
1) Some items then when you order, they do not have. Luncheon meat then rose by a lot, I can understand, then what about quail eggs?

2) They changed to new menu, they shift the quail eggs to the other side where you can only order ala carte. And they increase price.

You can order 10 servings of prawns or fish, they would never stop you. But anyone realise that when you go Paradise on Earth and you make your 1st order. They tick the orders for you. when it comes, sure got something missing or they give you wrong.
When i order meatball, they will bring prawn ball, fish ball along. Then my fish paste missing. I had to return them those I didn't order.

It's not once or twice. It's everytime.

Not withstanding all these I said, their items are fresh, fish and prawn ok lar. If you know how to cook, you go sheng siong supermarket and look at their spread of live prawns and you will know that the fish and prawns they serve are not the expensive type

Coca steamboat came from Thailand. the chilli or can call it the suki sauce is a recipe made just for steamboat. It's one of the most delicious sauce for steamboat I ever tried. In thailand, you can add in garlic, green chilli, celery to enhance the smell. But in Thailand, the most successful steamboat chain is MK steamboat. Not Coca. Another thing to mention, MK has more than 122 outlets in thailand, can fight against the Macdonalds and KFC. And their expansion surpassed Coca, even Coca was said to be better in taste, due to the fact that MK is run in a more corporate manner while Coca is more of within the family type of business.
http://www.mkrestaurant.com/mkdelivery/index.php

Their spread is very wide.

http://www.coca.com.sg/
Coca uses good prawns, when you eat it, you can feel they don't scrimp on quality

Their dinner more expensive and the lunch is cheaper.
