We went to this restaurant on May 7th 2022 knowing it had a Michelin star rating and wondering how it would compare to Loaf on, another Michelin star restaurant a few steps away. Please don't bother!!!So disappointing on the service front. We ordered 3 dishes...of which the Lobster dish should have been the star. The Thai style razor clams were really good and the vegetable dish was a good accompaniment but to have to wait over an hour for the Lobster dish was unacceptable. It was not that busy and we sat right near the service counter but were ignored so many times. At 45 mins gone we asked about our dish and was told 5 mins. Then we asked again.....another five minutes. All other tables had left. The lobster arrived 20 mins after our first reminder with no apology, It was underwhelming as a dish and our other vegetables were stone cold by then. We couldn't get out of there fast enough. The only concession made was 40hkd discount on a 2,000hkd bill. Shameful for an establishment supposedly recommended!!! I really hope nobody goes through the same disaster. Go to Loaf On around the corner......so much better!!!More

Save your money and time. There are several better, value for money and more courteous seafood restaurants in Sai Kung. This place is a scam with a nice facade/location and the worst service we’ve ever encountered in SK. Razor Clams good. Veg and Noodles standard....Lobster impressively poor.More

My absolute recommendation here is the steamed scallop with wine. The glass noodles are burgandy in colour and the scallops soaks up the rich flavour of the Chinese wine and the glass noodles are deliciously flavoured by the dried prawn roe.

Family member took us to Sing Kee for a good seafood experience. Their signature dish is deep fried abalone beautifully presented on a stepped platform and delicious. Had mantis which was salt and peppered very tasty. Shrimp were fresh and tasty. Fried rice was best...I have had in HK. Service was attentive and friendly.More

Went with a friend for sai kung seafood and was ripped off. Had 4 tiger prawns which I was told costs 140 per catty but charged me 640 per catty, or equivalent to hkd 100 per medium prawn which is outrageous. Restaurant claimed I misheard...them when they are blatantly ripping me off for regular prawns. Will not come here ever again and they definitely do not deserve any Michelin star when thry treat customers this way. Don't come here. What a scam.More

Nice enough food but nothing special, pay less and eat just as well at pretty much any of the other seafood restaurants in the area. The only praise I will give is that their presentation is perhaps a bit nicer but that is about it...and even that is subjective. First impression on the outside, their fish tanks are empty and have no choice compared to the other establishments. I ignored this initial warning sign, it’s 1 star isn’t it? First impression when inside, it’s lunchtime and there’s just the 3 of us and one other table whilst the other restaurants we walked past to get here were all packed. This is the second warning sign I ignored, it’s 1 star remember? When ordering from the menu, the actual price you will pay is unclear as you ask for quantity and type of seafood, they try their best to not make it clear either why saying the fish could we between 600 to 1200g but let’s see what we have. Considering that you are paying by the 100g and you never get to see the produce, they just bring an empty red bucket next to the table when you’re ordering just for show. Remember my 1st point ? Then they say they go and get the fish and prawns and abalone and shrimp from outside but never come back and show you. The food, it’s ok but not worth mentioning. The fish was over cooked by the way. Steamed to absolute hard as f@@k is what I muttered quietly in Hakka to myself. My wife and son speak English so they wouldn’t have understood. The bill is the best bit, the seafood items are wrapped up in 1 figure, 888hk$, that’s a very convenient number isn’t it, lucky for some too as 8 is for most Chinese (it’s also a pi55 take for non suspecting foreigners or tourists of which I am despite my immediate family all originally from Sai Kung). Anyway 888 is not too overly priced for what we ordered but we ordered very little and they were unwilling to break down that number. Then the underhand bit. There’s another number, can’t remember exactly but it was around $hk550. Asked the waiter what it was. Cleaning and gutting the seafood!?!? Nowhere does it say this is a separate charge, at no time was I told there is a separate charge for this and too be fair, at no point did I ask them to gut and clean the seafood I had chosen but never got to see live in that red bucket despite cleaning obviously being necessary before cooking. Why don’t they add this to the price per g in the menu? We obviously didn’t order enough food as we wanted a light lunch and only 1 large beer to share as they can just bump up the bill to whatever they want. No breakdown of the 550$ either, I must have been paying an expert fish gutter for all of 10 minutes. That’s over 3000hk$ an hour. Who needs to spend years studying law or medicine when you can earn those rates cleaning fish. To top it all off a service charge is added on top along with some other sundries items which they didn’t explain, probably the cost of some other normal restaurant practice like waiting on us. The 3 of us spoke English throughout and when ordering. The restaurant staff hedged their bets and thought we wouldn’t understand them talking. I speak Cantonese and Hakka fluently when I want to so I can tell you now that I don’t suspect that I was being ripped off, I know I was being ripped off. It’s upsetting to realise that people from my ‘home’ town are treating customers like this. One final tip, don’t use the toilet before the meal, it’s a disaster zone that hasn’t seen a clean for a long time but they are probably figuring out how to add the cost of that to your bill first.More

Friends with kids to Hong Kong wishing to taste seafood in Sai Kung. We had to pick the best. I thought the Michelin star at Sing Kee was well deserved after tasting the deep fried oysters which were gigantic and succulent and nicely deep fried....Memorable. I took only 2 of the 7 oysters on the plate as they were gone so quickly. Absolutely loved the lobster noodles in soup, in which the freshness of the lobster was accentuated. I would also say that their deep fried squid cake was quite delicately done. While, only the soy sauce shrimps were on par. For non seafood, even the choi sum was yummy. Kids fought over the Yukult flavoured puddings. A big free space outside the half outdoor seating area, which was perfect for the kids to run about. The price of hkd400 per person for lunch doesn’t come cheap. The service was attentive and not pushy. Quite a good choice of you wish to treat your guests to a nice seafood meal and good time in HK.More

It still is a mystery to me why Michelin rates this restaurant with a star. We ate outside on the terrasse, which is - when it comes to cleanliness, cosiness, hygiene or style - not much different than all the other fish-restaurants in Sai Kung....The food served was good, but not more than that, but certainly overpriced. Furthermore it is very unclear how much your fresh selection of fresh fish will cost, so be prepared for a bill that's almost double on what you are used to pay in Hong Kong area.More

Was here with a group of friends and opted for mainly seafood dishes picked from their displays. The food was average and the seafood quality mediocre (outside of the oyster which was very juicy). Probably better off to order the non seafood dishes if you...can help it. Ordering seafood in Hong Kong is a pricey affair so you are looking at 400HKD-500HKD if you order mainly seafood. Although this is a Michelin recommended restaurant, I would opt for other places around the area with better prices or if you want to try this place out, opt for lesser seafood dishes.More

The waiter proudly told us that the restaurant has 1 Michelin Star awarded for 5 consecutive years and I just could not find that special kick or Wow factor. Not in the fried squid cake we ordered - though fragrant and has a nice bite,...I could not taste much squid flavor in it. Not in the lobster crispy noodle - it was just a bit bland though the crispy noodle was ok as it absorbs the sauce. The pepper salt abalone was good - nicely done. The fried pepper salt tofu was also good. It’s quite expensive as with most live seafood restaurants in Sai Kung area. Service is good and toilets are reasonably clean. I doubt I’ll revisit given the pricing and average cooking.More

Wow. Bought some fish at the quay and these guys did wonders with it. One of the best seafood restaurants I've been to in hk or mainland China. Quite expensive but worth it, and worth the walk from the main stretch.
