We dined here at the suggestion of friends and loved it! It was very authentic. The food was so fresh. The portions were HUGE. We ordered the mild small spicy grab (enough for two), the green beans, a tofu and tomato soup that was insane, and a noodle dish. I am telling you it was all so good. And the... More

There are 3 branches all in the same area. Large groups should book at the biggest branch. They can speak many languages there, including Thai. The crab dish, their specialty, is extremely good. All the dishes were good except for their shellfish. It was fresh but could have been tastier. Prices are not cheap, yet not too expensive considering everything... More

Much too expensive for what it is. It is crab imported from Malaysia cooked with a load of deep fried chopped garlic. It is simple and good. Other things on the menu were average. The problem is the cost, medium crab costs around $100 us and one over cooked and dry mantis shrimp cost $30 or more. Dinner for three... More

My girlfriend and I came here excitedly after a morning wandering Causeway Bay. We were about to try the famous Hong Kong Typhoon Shelter Crab. We walked in at lunch time and were motioned toward an unset table with no table cloth. After five or so minutes the table was set and menus were brought over as well as some... More

I did not have the crab so I can not comment that. Our meals were delicious and service was prompt. This is not a high end restaurant but the food is worth the visit.

Wide choice of amazing dishes. My preferred one? I would say the razor clams. Be prepared to eat a lot of garlic ;) Ideal for diner with friends and family. Service is friendly and quick. We paid around 1000 HKD for the 3 of us with a wide range of different dishes and some beer.

As the title reads, the food here is always authentic and consistent. Their most famous plate, the crab with fried garlic, is not to be missed. But beware, even the mild spiced version can be spicy to some - err on the side of not being spicy enough. They specialize in seafood, but their other dishes such as the chicken... More

And so we went to celebrate my darling's birthday as she loves to eat crabs. We ordered the medium crab. As per their menu, they use "Vietnamese" crab. As I just started working in Hong Kong for a couple of months, this was perhaps the most ridiculous meal I've ever had. If you are a foodie or ever had crabs... More
