The crabs here are very fresh and juicy. But they have limited menu and only serve crabs, prawns, fish and fried rice. They don’t serve vegetables or any other meat.

A bit overrated and always crowded.go at 6pm. 730 onwards is crowded. Get the chicken wing and crabs of course but remember to ask the price per Kg.. For my crabs i prefer Lala Chong at Ara Damansara.

Try a few times before because friends love it. Unfortunately I think that the crab is not so fresh. The sauce cover everything up. Best to taste the crab is by steaming it. Btw, the fried chicken wing is good.

There's an unmistakable smell lingering in the air when you approach. And when you are seated, they people are quite welcoming. The food itself sends you on a rollercoaster of flavours and leaves you quite satisfied. Now, for a foreigner, this can be quite unsettling,...More

great food and need to be there as early as 5pm to avoid long Q. The chicken wings is delicious and also a must to have while waiting for the crab to be serve.

Crabs very delicious with their own authentic gravy/sauce. Can't get it anywhere else. Only 1 branch in Taman Megah. Fried rice and chicken wings also good. A must try!

Chili crab fantastic, fried rice nice and chicken wings great. You have to go early otherwise you will have to queue up for some time. Price on the high side but worth it.

A place for seafood especially crab. You can chose to have cooked in ginger style or spicy. Both taste extremely good. You have to book in advance to avoid the long wait. Value for money.

For 45 pound you can get a good meal for 2. That include chilli crab with toast,fried rice, chicken wings & chinese tea. If it is just the crab it will be cheaper around 30 pound
