This place is awesome! Casual, easy. Order Typhoon Crab in garlic and chilly peppers - will blow your socks off! Large prawns a must! Goes well with Chinese broccoli, and pork fried rice. Well and dont forget the cold beer! this will be one of the best meals you'll ever have!

Must try! So delicious! The best food we had in Hong Kong. It is closed to Causeway Bay metro. Waiters are very nice too.

Their spicy crab has kick and is quite unique - served with lots of fried garlic and chilli bits. Very different from the more common chilli or pepper crab you usually find in seafood restaurants at home in S'pore. We had the medium spicy one which was very tolerable. Personally I would have preferred it less dry and less salty.... More

This restaurant was reccomended by a friend and it is very good. Order the Spicy crab and it has a choice of taste between mild to spicy. The serving of the crab is very unique and really delicious. Other food in the menu also taste good. But the price is bit expensive. Please come early to avoid the queing.

crab specialty of the house was really good with tons of crispy salty garlic and goes so well with rice, but the price is really overpriced but if you're there to taste the flavors of hongkong, don't mind the price. the place is just a few walk from times square causeway bay. the restaurant is also always full so you...

We visited the restaurant yesterday. The crabs are tough and overly salty. All their dishes are salty. The vegetables are also salty and overcooked. Fail by any standards. In the end, we paid a high price HKD1800 (5 paxs) for a totally over rated food. So much for the raved reviews. We have had better meals.

Spicy crab offers great food for a reasonable price. You could have it cheaper elsewhere but spicy crab is for those who look for local food in not too local environment.

The restaurant needs to be booked, there seemed to be two different locations, we ended up being escorted around the corner to a separate restaurant to accommodate for the size of our party. Friendly smiles but poor service. Could swear the poor mud crabs we saw were shown to every table but never eaten. The chilly crab was very average,... More

Had dinner here with my friends on a business trip & just can't salivating every time I think of the place. Loved the spicy crab (their specialty), clams, prawns, scallops etc. There are many levels of spicy, be careful if you aren't used to really spicy food. Its a bit out of the way, being located in Wan Chai but... More

On a recent business trip to HK, I had been spoiled by eating at posh places like the Shangri-La and Upper House Hotels. A colleague and I decided to try something more authentically local, and he chose this place. The food is really delicious, and quite unlike the typical Chinese fare that is found in Toronto or other cities with... More
