The best thing about this place is the chilli crab....there are different levels of heat, depending on how hot you like your food. The rest of the menu is worth exploring as well.

This isn’t a fancy restaurant – it’s very Chinese-y with red and gold in its décor. As the name suggest, this crab specialist is under a vehicle bridge. You have to order crab if you go to a restaurant with crab in its name, so we did – we got the spicy crab with chilli and garlic, and true to... More

Theres no other way to put it but the most awful meal i have had in hong kong in 15 years. Over priced, overcooked seafood. Dishes were prepared with no care (raw onions in sautees), over seasoned and old garlic used for the crabs and mantis. I dont know what Bourdain got when he visited but this is a far... More

Dinner for one in November 2015. The crab was very expensive and I was actively talked out of the spicy option, which resulted in a disappointing experience.

Many of the reviews do not like the hostess out front. We found her very organized. We got a ticket, she calls out numbers in Chinese, we could mentally keep track or check her sheet when needed. We got there at 8:00p for a late seating at 8:45. Everything moved smoothly. Inside we were attended to quickly. Everyone was nice.... More

This place is rather informal. It's pretty noisy. It's not cheap, either. But the chili crabs and the seafood dishes are excellent. My family always asks to go here whenever they visit me in Hong Kong. The location is super convenient, too. Best to book in advance for dinner time. No matter whether it's 3 or 4 or 5 people,...

Wu is the girl at the front - we'd never met anyone ruder until we moved inside and met the wait staff. We were looking forward to the crab which was singularly disappointing and as far as we are concerned fell far short of our expectations. We consider ourselves to be sophistocated diners and are experienced travellers. This was up... More

The food is excellent, but as the adage goes you get what you pay for. Its a pricey restaurant. But this is the best spicy crab ive ever had, and ive tried quite a few. The cereal prawn is likewise great. Tip: Come early, the restaurant fills up. Also the garlic on the crab is great mixed with rice.

Not cheap but quite tasty. I came for the crab but seeing how it was Christmas I opted to get goose as well. The goose was good, a little chewy but I love the tangy sauce it comes with. The crab was very good. It is cooked a lot so don't expect tender crab. But still fun. Covered in fried... 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.
