Best crabs I had in singapore

These are hands down the best crabs that we had tried in singapore. The styles were chosen by our local friend. We had the chilli crab, the salted egg crab and also the crab with noodles. The salted egg was my favourite style although the soup was amazing even if the crab did not have much taste. We waited for quite a while and the service is not the best. They also had an open kitchen where we could see the chefs whipping up the crabs which is awesome. May come back again if there is a shorter waiting time. 4 stars!

The food is good but I hate the service system. They insisted we stand at the reservation counter to order even though we already reserved a table, and more than half the tables are unoccupied at that time. They even expect my elderly parents to stand and order before we could sit down. This is ridiculous! The waiters all had iPads for order taking so I don't know why they cannot let us sit.

The first time I went to the TP branch they insisted for all our table guests are there before letting us sit, when most of the tables were also empty. I'm used such seating system in US restaurants, but they only do it when the tables are fully occupied. Why do u make your customers stand for nothing?

Bravo Mellben! I have no idea what kind of genius you have who came up with this idea of making your customers stand and order so that's it's more efficient for your restaurant, while pissing of many other customers at the same time. I guess u have lost all those customers who think they won't go for any food, no matter how good, when the service sucks as much as yours!

Was at the shop on 18th July 2015. Was in queue for more than 90 minutes. Yet there was a family that just walk in and get a table in 5 minutes. 
I went to ask the lady who is arranging the sitting, she told me is because this is BOSS FRIENDS so they called earlier and ask for the table. But this place is 100% no reservation, so why are they giving this kind of privilege to your own friend. 
If you want to implement no reservation, then be fair. Be it he is your friends or what. As everyone in queue waited so long. If you are dishonest by doing this to your customer, don't know what else will you do. 
And when I went to make my payment I asked another lady behind the cashier. This time, she said they are BOSS RELATIVE that why they can get the table so fast. So after listening to both lady, I don't know who to trust. If u like to serve only your FRIENDS OR RELATIVE then maybe you should state that this is for member only. Make it exclusive to your own friends. 
And for your service staff, I seriously think that they need to go for some basic training. Some are rude and impatient.
