Good quality of raw crab. Very tasty when its mixed with rice. Soy abalone is amazing too. Food quality is great. Definitely a great place if you like raw crab. Service is so-so. I speak English and the waitress doesn't seem to understand. Then I switched to Chinese - waitress speaks a bit of Chinese but is not particularly friendly.... More

Relatively raw crab is expensive. However it's quality is always good. Korean spy crab is similar to shanghaiese raw crab (shanghaiese put wine in it). Nowadays the restaurant is full of tourist, esp Chinese. Try the simple one- no spicy crab (so fresh) and order a bowl of white rice. If u do not want the crab. U may just... More

If I die from eating them, will join those crabs, hopefully in heaven … Tucked away on a side street in Seoul, Pro Ganjang Gejang Sinsa offers a... More

My friend and I came to this place mainly because of the soy sauce raw crab, but then we ordered a seafood hotpot too. The soy sauce crab is okay because I dont really like the texture of raw crab. But to our surprise, the octopus and abalone still move in the hotpot. But it's a bit cruel to see... More

The ganjang-gejang (raw crabs marinated in soy sauce) were raw and quite salty but filled with ample of roe. The deep-fried soft shell crabs and seaweed soup were very, very delicious! We had 3 small soy sauce female raw crabs, 1 plate of deep-fried soft shell crabs, 2 bowls of rice, 1 steamed egg and they cost 140,000 won (SGD$165.70)... More

The crab are really fresh and delicious! Sauce mix with Korean egg rice, together with traditional Korean appetizer are pretty good! Each person enjoyed one crab each but already full enough! A bit expensive but worth a try
