Good if you like Garlic

The spicy crab was great covered in garlic and spice. Some of the other dishes were marginal. Lot's of fried items that did not appeal to me. Overall very good and not too expensive

This restaurant is just great. The crab and shellfish are fantastic. Despite being well-known, the atmosphere retains a local feel. If you have chance to go, don't miss the opportunity.

I was taken here last night by my hong kong based business associates. Without a doubt this restaurant is one of the best that i have been to for a while. The chillie crab was just sensational, the goose was tender, the calamari and bbq pork to die for. The location is good if you are staying in Causeway Bay... More

The spicy garlic crab might be one of the best crab dishes I've eaten anywhere, but the green beans were absolutely the best in my world!! Everything was fresh plus cooked and seasoned to perfection...Now about the service...If you were not speaking Cantonese you were ignored to a certain degree but after a while a waitress noticed us and things...

This was our second visit to the Spicy Crab under The Bridge. 2 years ago the food was good enough to make up for the iffy service. This time, it wasn't, and anyway the restaurant somehow "lost" our crab, so that we ended up eating rice and vegetables first, and crab last (after some help from the Chinese on the... More

Food was fine. No qualms! Being charged for a chair (4 people)? Is that normal in HK? Also charged for what appeared to be a complimentary bowl (15 nuts) We weren't the only ones to complain as there was a family shortchanged at the next table as we arriving.

The spicy garlic crab was WOAHHHH! Service not that good if you don't speak canto. Gave us wrong order 2 twice despite having my friend speaking to him in Canto. The bill was around $70 USD per person

I am drooling while writing this review. The crab with spicy garlic is so huge and super delicious. Although it is not cheap, but it's worth every penny. Never had crab cooked this way before. It is so special. The waitress is so friendly and helpful, whenever he saw us having hard time opening the crab, he would come and... More

The food was okay - very expensive. You are paying for the name and reputation. Watch what they bring to the table. We were charged for tea and peanuts which were there when we sat down and we tried to send away. 16 $HGD for tea and 8 $HKD for the little bowl of peanuts. When we said we didn't... More

I loved that the name is precise, concise , and exactly tells you what they specialize in, and where they are located. This place is clean and adequate for hosting a dinner party, although the kitchen itself can be seen few doors down. The food itself was very tasty, however, it is very expensive and they do not give you... More

Staying in Wan Chai / Causeway Bay

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.
