Friendly service and a funky atmosphere. Took a "foodie" friend from Hong Kong there - she decided the food was 'sensational'. Her husband didn't like the red wine, but rated the evening a great success. Thanks 'Holy Crab' for a great night, will definitely be back with other friends and visitors to Singapore.

The restaurant staffs were very pleasant and welcoming. Service was excellent! :) However, we felt that it was a little pricey. The hokkien mee priced at $15 could be more generous in terms of the portion and ingredients. The first impression when the dish came was "wow such a small plate for $15?" Also there was only 2 prawns. Food was delicious nonetheless! We also had crabs in 2 flavors :)

Food was excellent, located in an easy to find place, at exit D of bugis mrt. Price is on higher side, but quality is good!
