I absolutely love this place. The crabs are really fresh service is quite fast and everything is just good about this place. The main problem that people don't like this place it's because it's quite expensive and you need to wait 10-20 minutes before they have a seat for you during peak hours. For me it's worth the wait and... More

The chicken wings must be from another planet. Excellent! The rest of the menu is OK but quite ordinary.

We went on a friday night - possibly a mistake and ended waoting almost an hour before a table for 10 was available. If there are just 2 of you, it is much quicker to secure a table. You order while in the queue. Prices are somewhat high and they only take cash. Bonus was the durain vendor outside!

although their menu are limited, but its actually help you to narrow down your choices and get your crab to be cooked faster. Dont forget to order the fried rice and steam bread. Its nice to eat together with the crab and the gravy. Dont order fancy drink, chinese tea is the best drink.

Famous crab restaurant. Very popular. Main dishes - crab and fish. Chicken wings as main appetizers. Be early and be prepared to queue. Well worth the wait.

Our (including my colleagues) review is as follows: - Total lack of variety - The worst place for crabs - when we... More

There were 4 of us. We started with the chicken wings followed by the standard serving of chilli crabs. It was accompanied by fried rice. We ended asking for another serving. We had chilli crab overdose but it was worth it. The service could be intimidating with burly grandmothers taking and giving orders. Be early. Preferably before 7 pm. Otherwise... More

Tried out this restaurant on a Sunday evening. Truly, parking is a nightmare on Sundays, especially when there was night market going on. Arrived there about 6.30pm, there was already 30 plus people on Q, joined in the Q and managed to get a table within 35 mins later. During Q, middle aged lady will take down your order (mainly...
