About Dancing Crab 

Dancing Crab serves a fusion of American Style Seafood with a distinct local flavour. Part of the TungLok Group, one of the most established seafood restaurant groups in Singapore, Dancing Crab is dedicated to serving quality live seafood. The restaurant has been featured in 8Days, TimeOut Singapore and The New Paper, which shows how well loved their brand is.

With two outlets in Singapore and three outlets in Japan, Dancing Crab is a place where diners gather with their friends and family to feast on seafood while jamming to pop and rock songs played on blast. The best part? The folks at Dancing Crab believe that the best cutlery for eating crabs is none other than your hands! As such, no forks or knives will be provided so that you can dig into your meal with your fingers. Talk about a gastronomic experience!

Menu Selection

Dancing Crab is known for their live seafood, signature sauces and a deliberately messy way of eating. You heard that right! Don’t worry about making a mess as plastic gloves and aprons will be provided for all customers, so that you can enjoy cracking the shells open with your hands! The tables are also lined with plastic sheets, where the seafood is laid out for your dining pleasure!


The Build a Combo option allows customers to create their own seafood feasts. Customers would have to select a main dish from a variety of live seafood delights such as Sri Lankan Crabs, Dungeness Crabs, and Boston Lobsters along with a sauce of their choice — the Famous Signature Cajun Sauce, Zesty Garlic Butter Sauce, White Pepper Cream Sauce, Mala Sauce, and Beurre Blanc Sauce. A secondary item, such as live crawfish, live prawns, blue mussel, flower clam, chicken sausages, and steamed corn is then tossed into the mix on the table to create a delicious feast for everyone to dig into!


Dancing Crab is known for their beer battered calamari rings and mushrooms. Their fries come in three variations. Sweet Potato, Truffle and Spicy Cajun. Fancy something a little more filling? Dig into a bowl of Nachos with Crab Meat or some Garlic Soy Sauce Wings!
