The hotel concierge recommended this place and actually walked us across to it as it was so hidden away. It's not much to look at, pretty basic and partially outside but was busy with plenty of locals. We got seated straight away but the service...More

This sure is a very busy restaurant. Please bear in mind that they do not take reservations and you have to come and stand in the queue. Great atmosphere even though it is on the ground floor of the Apartment block. Their signature dishes are...More

Very yummy and at a reasonable price. Three of us ordered three different flavor of crabs. Don't forget to order sour plum juice to go with it

Best plump juicy fresh crabs I've tasted in a Long time. Succulent meat comes off easily from the pincers and the crab bee Hoon is a delicious blend. Only complaint is the Long queue (almost 1 hour).

Probably the best crab in singapore. Good range of sizes. Service is quite good. The only downside is the price. If it was only slightly cheaper i would come here everyday!

Chilly crab at Mellben is the best dish in Singapore. We like it very much. It is a must-east food every time when we visit Singapore.

Mellben crab regardless of Chilli black pepper, butter, spring onion and ginger or with bee hoon soup are always finger licking good but be prepared to burn a hole. A medium size 1.2kg crab will cost you anything close to 100bucks. Certainly not for weekly...More
