Amazing spot with great service and food. We had the back pepper crab and crab fried rice and also some noodles. Everything was wonderful. The slight twist on the dishes were really fun and worked. Highly recommend this place for anyone going to Singapore and...is looking for classic dishes in a nice setting.More

Recently, we have a dinner at this restaurant and ordered chili crab and some other dishes. The staff were attentive and quickly responded to our requests. The crab itself was taste good. The crab was cut into pieces instead of the whole before being served...to us. The problem was that we only saw one crab claw and a part of legs. The other claws, the other legs and most of the central part meat were totally not seen. Crabs are common food in our home, we are familiar with the cooking and eating of crab dishes. Based on our experience, we have a feeling that the staff did not give us all the parts of the crab. Therefore, I will not comeback and do not recommend this restaurant.More

Sitting under huge crab claws my friend and I were treated to a signature dish of chilli crab, along with garlic infused bok choi and a cooling coconut juice. Equipped with a plastic bib and gloves, tools to tackle the mud crab and fabulous chef...owner entrepreneur n entourage. When you come to Singapore trest yourself to this.More

Food was really fantastic, I had the green chilli crab, chicken, angel hair and more. Food is really unique and presentation was good. Top pick will be the crab and Angel hair. It does really taste like Angel hair, every mouth I took it taste...like heaven. Green chilli crab was special doesn’t taste any chilli crab out there. The crab is bless in a good way it is the only way that it should be prepare and eaten. Overall if I is my last meal 10/10 will pick this placeMore

A fantastic dinner for our last night across Australia and Asia. We went for the traditional Singapore chilli crab, they catered for our allergies and also had a great setup for our 2 year old. With child friendly plates / cutlery, of course in full...crab design. Staff very friendly.More

Excellent crab in the lightest chilli sauce hey do. Much meat, much fresh. I had enough patience to keep the meat and dunk into the sauce.

We went there to try the famous chili crab. We made a reservation through google but it was a bit difficult to find the restaurant, as it's inside a Hotel. We ordered the traditional chili crab which costs around 109 SGD/kg. We were given an...aipron and gloves not to get dirty when opening and eating the crab.The crab and the sauce tasted really good but it was very spicy for our taste.More

Great food, chilli crab was delicious and fairly priced. Great service and lovely staff. However, the octopus was over priced, for what it was. Would definitely recommend, but not the octopus.

The service was terrible, the staff were rude, direct and on their phones the whole time. The food was very average and the crab left a fishy after taste. My girlfriend couldn’t even stomach the food and I couldn’t stomach the service. All of this...for a $120 dollar mealMore

Amazing Chili Crab - had the classic Singapore and it was incredible. I think they were see a fire hose to clean up after us - it’s messy, but worth it. We also enjoyed the fried corn appetizer and the fried noodles- both were incredible....Staff was great and this was a wonderful place to enjoy all the flavors!More

I would like to report an unpleasant experience in this restaurant. I ordered two crabs for 3 persons. I asked the waitress for a rice dish as a side. She showed us on the menu a rice dish for $18. When I went to pay,...I was surprised to discover that the rice dish had increased to $90! This amount was indicated in another place on the menu and the waitress explained to me that there were pieces of crab in the rice, which justified the price. I didn't want to make a fuss because I was inviting friends and I didn't want to make them feel uncomfortable. But nothing justified the price, as the crab pieces were drowned in the rice. I has the impression that they used this trick to inflate the bills. The crabs were good but a bit expensive and the closed environment in a shopping mall not very pleasant. In short, I do not recommend this restaurant.More
