I went for dinner with friends after a week working in Hong Kong. We had seafood curry which was my favourite plus a beef casserole which my friend liked. We also shared seafood and a plate of greens. All the meals were very good and tasty. There wasn't a lot of atmosphere but it was OK. Service... read more

The food was amazing. The crab was tasty. The problem was the owner told us (2 people at dinner) if we ordered the price fix for 4 people he would adjust it for 2. The bill came and it was not adjusted. We told him that the bill appeared wrong. He told us that we also got peanuts and tea... More

I enjoyed my evening here because the staff made it enjoyable and had some fun with what they were doing unlike many other places in HK. They helped me order, had a laugh with me trying understand each other, and did all those great things a restaurant does to get you to spend. As I got the menu I got... More

The chili crab is amazing! Perfectly paired with rice. We ordered the small size crab which could feed a group of 4 pax. We also ordered other seafood disheds (mussles, clams) which were also good. We also surprisingly got good service (we ate at the 3rd floor, quite a hike up). The server assigned to us was polite and speaks... More

We had dinner at this restaurant on Sunday 23 August 2015. This is the worst seafood restaurant that we have been to in HK. All the seafood were pre-cooked. The scallops, typhoon shelter style crab, clams with chilli and black beans, fried calamari were ALL RE-COOKED. They were served lukewarm. I have never been to a proper sit down restaurant... More

A must have for the famous HK chilli crab. The small crab is easily shared between 3 with an accompanying crunchy bean and pork dish? Friendly staff and a dedicated 'beer' girl. We were the only Westeners in the restaurant at the time. Very local, very good.

Come rain or shine, day or night this place is more or less open all hours. A 3am stopover at this place is one of the delectable delights of the city. Lots of seats and lots of choice.

Even though I do no normally enjoy seafood I have to say that this was a great meal! Everything was fresh and the service was good. Obviously go for a crab dish :) or even better share among a few people to try more of their lovely food.

I was taken to this restaurant to experience the crab dish. Originally, this dish was cooked for fishermen who had to take shelter during typhoon. The quality of the food is very good, a bit too spicy for me but most of my colleagues loved it. Don't expect much from the restaurant environment though, it's all very basic. Good to... 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.
