Nice food but expensive

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.

We came to try its black pepper crab. Despite the price, the crabs are cooked to perfection. Source is tasteful and aromatic. Quite satisfied.

Very awesome. Helpful and friendly staff. Though located in the hearts of a coffeeshop, zhi char stall, but the standard is totally comparable to those in a restaurant. Been there a few times and totally will recommend friends and relatives to visit for crab feast :)

I had been told about the salted egg crab at the Ghim Moh branch for a few years now so this trip to Singapore I had to try them. I thought that the quality of the crabs was the best I've had in Singapore. Perfectly cooked and incredibly fresh/flavourful. The sauce was very pleasant... a tad sweet but with lots... More

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
