Went there two person and ordered the famous Chilli Crab. We decided to have a big crab rather than 2 small crabs (cheaper i feel, crabs are a bit pricey). The crab served was big and the meat was fresh and sweet. Together with the crab, the paste was nice too, different but outstanding compared to the chilli crabs paste... More

Went there twice in a week as I needed to host my overseas relatives/guests for dinner. Tried the famed Chilli crabs and black pepper crabs. Surprisingly both sets of my guests from different days preferred the black pepper crab. The place is not really conducive and the food servers are curt but fast in their service. Don't expect any good... More

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
