Friends living in Singapore took four of us here for dinner and it was very very good! We left all the ordering to them and had three types of crab - chilli, peppered and steamed. The first two were our favourites and we all 'mucked in' and demolished everything including some buns and rice. Yes, definitely take more napkins to... More

A great local place to eat in a no frills local Hawker Centre. Master Crab was recommended by a Singaporean friend. We've been a couple of times. The locals are generally quite fascinated to see foreigners eating there. Its not in the city but out at Buena Vista just above the mrt station, next to very near a small bus... More

We went to the Master Crab closest to Buona Vista MRT. We ordered the sweet and sour pork, deep fried chicken, yang chow fried rice and Gai lan. Plus of course their famous crabs - one in the salted egg sauce and the other chilli. I loved all the food we ordered. My favourite was the salted egg crab. There... More

I've had 2 types of Salted Egg Crab- dry rub and wet. This crab at Master Crab has a sauce and I think it's the absolute best! I live in NYC and travel often to Singapore to see family. I will always ask to stop there and eat salted egg crab. It's not glamorous or high-end. It's just amazing. Just... More

This is my first time eating crabs at Master Crab. The location that we went is at the coffee shop at Block 19 Ghim.Moh. We ordered their salted egg crab and crab with glass noodle, personally I prefer the salted egg crabs. Best to come with Manton. We also ordered their prawn paste chicken, pumpkin taufu and yam ring, not... More

Being an avid seafood foodie, I was introduced to this "restaurant" by a local friend a few years ago, and on each trip to Singapore, this would be a mandatory visit. We've lost count of the number of times we've eaten at Master Crab @ Ghim Moh, but other than on 2 occasions, we had not been disappointed. Our favourite... More

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