delicious food but the value is lacking

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... read 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

We had the spicy crab which is the signature dish of this restaurant. The staff spoke English so it was no problem to order the right food and drinks. The crab was amazing. It was covered in spices and a ton of garlic! Really good food and not touris around when we visited the restaurant

As we are crab lovers, we tried the next day after we came back from a day trip in Macau. There were no queue by that... More

filthy place, aggressive waiters, cheating manager, very dry crab pincers (without the body!!!) We had little time: the chair steps were so dirty, we didn't want to think about the kitchen ...and it was crowded with Chinese, so it had t be good! I remembered superbus steamed crab in Hong Kong, but what they served us under a cover of... More

Very local spot in Hong Kong. The ambiance is nothing to write home about (bright lights, crowded, multi-level), but the signature spicy crab dish is so good. It's a big crab covered in garlicky breadcrumbs. It's messy and greasy but really, really good.

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

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.
