Besides the price, everything is perfect here

Pricey for this crab, but for me it worth every dime. It is just so Hong Kong, so good and distinctive.

Famous for its crab, this joint is always jammed with both locals and tourists. The prices are reasonable but the food isn't up to the standards you can now find elsewhere.

I love crab, but had never had spicy crab so we went here. I loved the very messy, medium spicy chili crab! It was a huge serving and very delicious! You'll use a lot of napkins! I recommend having a Tsingtao bear with it! We enjoyed watching the servers bring in the food from the kitchen down the street. We... More

Tried the medium spicy chilli crab, love it! Love the fragrant and the claw is huge! It is pretty pricey we spent almost 300hkd for a meal for 5 adults and 2 kids. Service was normal. Read more and view photos from my blog: http://illusorydoll.blogspot.sg/2015/02/hong-kong-trrip-cny-eve-day-1.html

Let me be very objective about the place. Some of the bad reviews are based on writer's frustration over the high price, bad service, wrong hype and high expectation. I came alone and the waiter put me in a share table with another solo eater, i think it's rude and i don't expect this kind of treatment in this kind... More

Has a very extensive menu and the food overall is quite nice and well priced if you aren't enjoying the Spiced crab or fresh seafood dishes (most dished around $12 AUD). Quick efficient service, but we couldn't order wine by the glass which is a bit weird. We stayed around the corner at Mirra Moon and a staff member advised... More

Avoid this restaurant!! You cant trust them because they always want to trick you! They charged us for tea even for those in the party drinking and paying for soda. When we confronted the waiter about it he just got angry at us and swored in Chinese (I guess). I don't know what they are known for. It cant be... More

First, it is EXPENSIVE, but worth it! They covered the crabs with fried garlics (I think it's garlic), and it's relatively salty compares to crabs I had in Taiwan. However, it goes so right with rice and some other fried vegetables. You can definitely be full here, and missing the crabs when you back home.

This place is good but expensive for the budget traveler, although it becomes a better value if you come as a group of at least with one other person. The signature dish, Typhoon Shelter Crab, can run up to $500HKD depending on the season, weight of the crab, etc. Typhoon Shelter Crab is Hong Kong's equivalent to Singapore's Chili Crab.... More

This place has a pretty long history. TV chef eat here. The spicy crab is very flavorful and well prepared. The place also has a variety of steamed and sautéed sea creatures, which are good. The main attraction is the crab. The night I went, we were 2 diners. We ate a medium spicy crab, an order of blanched small... More

Neighborhood Profile
Wan Chai / Causeway Bay
Wan Chai and Causeway Bay are the retail centers of Hong Kong Island. Filled with shops, malls and restaurants, both areas are bustling with people – tourists and locals alike. Causeway Bay has one of the highest rents on the planet, and is a bit more polished and modern than its Wan Chai counterpart. Beneath the surface there is more than meets the eye – find boutique stores in the above ground floors of buildings and wander into side streets to find interesting restaurants and shops tucked away from the main roads. Wan Chai especially has experienced a modern revival in recent times, with an influx of trendy restaurants and bars around the Star Street area. In addition, both areas contain many of Hong Kong’s iconic tourist attractions worthy of your visit.
