Upholding its reputation as one of the best Louisiana restaurants in Singapore, one can expect only the best of Louisianan seafood to be served on their dining tables at Dancing Crab by TungLok Group. Those who have been to the restaurant would know that a meal there is life changing and the dining experience redefines perspectives of how seafood should be enjoyed.
Dancing Crab has done away with the usual tableware so that diners are able to enjoy their food freely using bare hands. That’s right, the casual restaurant is like a home away from home but much better with scrumptious country-style Cajun seafood, a boisterous atmosphere and creative alcoholic beverages.
We are very excited to share that Dancing Crab has unveiled an updated menu featuring new dishes that come with prices that won’t shock you. Needless to say, signature dishes such as their Dancing Crab Combo Bags are here to stay as well.

It has been four years since we wrote our guide on restaurants in Orchard Road and though we update them from time to time, we thought it is high time to re-curate and to introduce a new guide, featuring even more dining places in Singapore’s most famous shopping street.
Options are aplenty and no doubt we are all spoilt for choice, but are they really worth their queues/ price tags/ waiting time? We have friends from overseas who visit Singapore and have limited time on our sunny island, and then we have our locals who do not want to waste their calories unnecessarily.
The next time you head to Orchard Road, you need not face the risk of stepping in to a random diner and not knowing what to expect.
