    Kankun Garlic, leek fried rice, dark chocolate biscuit pudding are excellent! So are the garlic pepper prawns and chili pepper crab. Passion fruit juice is fresh squeezed and add-your-own-sugar :)

    Every detail is handled by perfection..... I'm not a real fan of crab but the way it is presented and the taste is great... Anyway that explains why it is always full....

    Great survive and classics atmosphere . The crab wasn't cheap but it's worth to it! Crab with Garlic chili and prawn rice was best combination. Beer is so cheap there only 190Rs.

    Chili crab in the smallest size is perfect for one person. Savor the succulent, sweet meat and sop up the chili sauce with kade bread. Wash it all down with an ice cold beer. Pure bliss!

    We ordered two medium chili crabs, one medium curry crab & a medium pepper (extra pepper) crab & it was perfect for our party of four (medium crabs are more tender & juicy). Meal was EXCELLENT!!!!)

    By Christ my large chilli crab lived up to its name in every way. And this is from a thai food lover and vindaloo specialist. It's was a physical, mental and financial battle which was well worth it.

    Dinner for two, had the 1kg garlic crab and crab fried rice which was just nice. Crab was meaty, fresh and juicy. Perfect.

    The place deserved a waiting list, refreshingly unairconditioned, it let's you soak in the unique ambience. The crabs are to die for, don't miss the freshly baked bread as well !!

    The crabzilla unfortunately was not available. We had 3 small crabs made in pepper sauce, garlic chilli and chilli sauce. Garlic chilli one was exceptional. Love the taste of those fresh crabs

    Maybe the best crab I've had..? The miso butter sauce is amaazzzesssss. You definitely pay for it but I think it's worth the price.

    the chilli crab is delightful with garlic rice, lots of patience and time for any crab size over a medium, and always ask for more than one finger bowl at the end

    Great place for crabs!! really big ones.. I've never seen such huge ones before. But prefer the malaysian style cooking though... More creative! All in all a good experience but pricey..

    You need to make reservation before dinner. It's always full house. Crab is super huge and it can go as big as my head! Menu is limited. The crab worth the money thou. Other dish taste so so.

    Book a table. Jumbo garlic cooked crab is absolutely amazing. Get some bread/plain rice to go with it and KanKun greens. Dip bread/rice in crab garlic oil.)

    Have the butter and soy black tiger prawn as a starter to whet your appetite, and use the prawn heads to scoop up the extra sauce! Fantastic!

    Love the atmosphere,Menu is Very Limited! but the food was o.k, Prawn Rice was really nice, Leek Fried Rice, not so much. Spicy crab and spicy Prawns dishes are not that spicy. ask fr extra spice

    Sorry, the best crabs get exported. The flavors in Singapore are much better than the ones at the Ministry.

    Crabs are really really fresh. Flavours were average. And it's quite pricey. I don't like the farmed prawns, but the soy butter prawn sauce was amazing.

    The food is so-so, service is quite bad as the staff is not attentive and slow. Great ambience and the crab is fresh.
