We were recommended this place by our hotel and it was amazing. The chilli crab was to die for. It was reasonably priced as well. Would defiantly go back.

Good place for big group of friends who want to enjoy a nice dinner. Place is quite big and can accomodate prity big tables. We were 12 and no issue to book a table.

It's our usual Sunday out for dinner and we decided to give Mellben a try. We arrived around 6:45 pm and there was already a queu snaking around the shop. I had protests from the kids about the long queue but we persisted. Eventually, we got our table at 7:45. Our food was order before we got our table and... More

Fantastic Singapore food experience. Genuine local cuisine & atmosphere with great quality & fresh ingredients. Signature dish is crab & you can have it served a variety of ways but be careful as a small crab is more than plenty for one. Let the staff guide you with recommendations - they are friendly & know what's popular. We also had... More

If you come here, make sure you order crab, especially the creamy butter crab and chilli crab. Other menu is quite standard. The place is crowded, so come early.

It was a rainy Monday night. My honey and I arrived around 6:30p.m. Not too many patrons and we got a small table right away. The signature dish is the mud crab. But the menu will not tell you how much a crab cost, it only tells you different ways of cooking. We ordered a pepper crab about 1 kg.,... More

Portions are on the big side, so more group/family style rather than for solo or even 2. Location may not be known to all taxi drivers from the train station (if you're not arriving by bus) so make sure the driver knows before hitting off. The first taxi driver honestly told us he's not sure so we decided to go... More
