We brought some relatives over to eat some authentic local food. It was nice and fresh from the vegetables to crab. The only drawback was the price which we found very expensive for local food even given that we ate one crab.

Big crabby available in this restaurant. I love the chilli crab and the salted egg crab. Nearest station will be Buana Vista, approximately 5 mins walking distance from the MRT station.

Most dishes tastes quite good except the crabs, which are rather normal, in fact, slightly below average to me. Don't know why they are called "Master Crabs"

1st time been to the Master Crab @ Ghim Moh branch. Enjoy eating the salted egg crabs and drunken prawns but their chilli crab is a disappointment.

Been here several times in the past and was satisfied. Was with family here for dinner to celebrate labour day. However this time had a crab that was full of urine/ammonia taste. Commented to the staff on it and they just brushed it off with what seemed to be a polished response that probably the chef chopped the urine duct.... More

We asked for extra sauce of the salted egg but they say there's an extra charge of $3. Everything has extra charges nowadays there. Their home made tofu... More

I had tried salted egg crab in singapore, but I think here is the best as price and taste. Even though, this restaurant is considered as hawker food court, but it is really crowded. Black pepper crab is also nice. Must try both!!

Ate here with a group of friends on a Friday evening. The place was very crowded but if you like to experience the Singaporean hawker-style eating, the hectic-scene was somewhat enjoyable. We had the salted egg crab, black pepper crab, chili crab and cereal prawns, along with fried mantao buns to clean the overflowing sauces. Given the portion and taste,... More
