Dancing Crab (Orchard Central)

1150 Wishlisted
Welcome to Dancing Crab! Dancing Crab excudes the spirit of Louisiana dining and its country-style seafood takes centre stage here. Its no-holds-barred concept means that diners literally dine off the table, san plates and cutleries, and simply enjoy a finger-licking-good time. Great tasting fresh seafood boil, lobster rolls, crab cakes, thirst-quenching lemonades, cocktails, imported beers - these are just some of the regular items which fly off the menu everyday. Coupled with a casual, lively and vibrant atmosphere with funky music, this place gives you every reason to keep coming back.

1 Live Sri Lankan Crab (approx. 700g), 350g Prawn, 350g Live Clam, Corn, Chicken Sausage, with zesty garlic butter.


Came here for wifey’s birthday and it was a satisfying meal. The seafood were fresh and the portion was quite okay for 1 person.. (because I don’t eat seafood so she ended up eating all herself, while I ate the corn and sausage 🤓)

We ordered the Cajun sauce, and the sauce was pretty overpowering… will probably not order this sauce in the future

Ordered 2 of the live crab combo (cajun & beurre blanc sauce), the cajun sauce was quite different from what we expected and we were kinda disappointed… beurre blanc was good though!

Have a crab-tastic feast with the fam at this restaurant located on the 7th floor of Orchard Central. Burppler Amanda Wong ordered the Live Crab Combo with Famous Signature Cajun Sauce ($98) and "it was soo good that I wish I had a bowl of rice to suck up all the remaining sauces! It came with a whole live Dungeness crab, prawns, clams, corn and chicken andouille sausage." If you'd prefer to customize your feast, build your combo with a choice of 1 main item, secondary items and their signature sauce — Our Famous Signature Cajun, Zesty Garlic Butter or Beurre Blanc.

Selected the lowest spicy level ‘cos mom can’t take too spicy. Very filling and deliciously spicy.
Mom loves the juicy prawns. She said fresh too! Dad had a great time with the crab 🦀 and beer.
Great service with disposable paper bags to keep the mask, wet tissues, disposable gloves, and disposable aprons on the table.

A delicious mess! Ordered the signature Cajun sauce and it was soo good that I wish I had a bowl of rice to suck up all the remaining sauces! It came with a whole live Dungeness crab, prawns, clams, corn and chicken andouille sausage.

The sauce went really well with all the seafood and sides but the crab was kind of disappointing, it was meaty and juicy but I wasn’t sweet at all. Should have ordered the live crab instead to save that extra bucks.

Some of the staff were friendly but one was kinda of rude and openly laughed at my partner when he walked to the wrong table upon returning from the washroom.
