Every business has its own story to tell and its own unique song to sing. This is the story of Chin Huat.

Chin Huat Live Seafood is the namesake of our late founder who started the restaurant in 1982. His live lobsters took Singapore by storm in the 90s, and till this day, many fondly remember his iconic catchphrase “龙虾大过小女孩!” (a lobster larger than a little girl).

Following the sudden demise of Mr Low Chin Huat in 2005, the reins of this family business fell squarely on the shoulders of the eldest daughter, who, at the tender age of 25, had no experience or ability to run the restaurant. This uphill task was made even more challenging for her, as the business was then already on the verge of closing down.

However, a still small voice spoke to the young daughter then. “Do not fear. I will help you and I will protect you”
