Novelty idea to eat your meal - no plates.

Quite a novelty. Popular with young adults. Portion of combo is rather small. We order the Cold Combo, that comes with 4 oysters, several mussles and prawns and half an Alaskan crab. The seafood is fresh. Also ordered the garlic noodle which a portion for one person. The fried chicken is quote good. Do not expect any attentive service as it is very crowded over the weekends. Water is a 'help-yourself' thingy. Overall quite good experience but won't be dying to be back.

Not worth the hype. Yet still a place to try due to its novelty

First and last time. A great idea of boiled seafood with sauces, but wasn't as good as other i've eaten before. Find out more on my post below: http://shauneeie.blogspot.sg/2014/10/dancing-crab-grandstand.html

first and last time

impressive idea - saved time and costs by eating on the table. However, money saved on hiring cleaning crew not redeployed to hire better service staff.

terrible service. staff only wants to leave at 1030pm and will make excuses to rush customers with their food.

Great food, fun atmosphere, awful assistant manager

We had a great family sunday lunch at Dancing crab. The food was good and our waitress was fantastic. Experience was ruined by a very very rude assistant manager. We made an order and then ran up to him less than a minute later to change one of the orders and he told us off. I was quite shocked and disappointed. Other than that we would go back but we'd definitely avoid placing an order with him.
Nice and refreshing dining concept.

Definitely nice and worth it.

It was a refreshing experience, both taste and sensual.

It has its own USP (Unique Selling Proposition) in 2 ways.
1) Eat our food without plates, just eat on the plastic tablecloth spread out on the table.
2) Sante Time: Their Own Happy Hour Pattern where we need to yum seng our drink and be eligible for a free refill, at 8pm (our visit today was held at 8.45pm)

Besides that, their staffs sang a birthday song and placed our birthday cake on a dry ice platter which was pretty unexpected, a nice surprise.

Besides, the food was quite nice, particularly the Sri Lankan Crabs and Boston Lobster. The Dungeness Crab was not too nice though.

The service from the Indian guy in Black was quite nice, except the remaining staffs need to buck up a bit in enthusiam and cheerfulness.

Overall, I think it is worth a good review and a 2nd visit, what's more with the $10 Return Voucher with every $100 spent, that can be used on a weekday.
