Their seafood are very fresh, but if you expect Mediteranian or Western style cooking..., u r at the wrong place. Some Chinese dishes may be hot or spicy than u can imagine. You have to tell them correctly how you want them to cook your seafood (for example, steam or deep fry or stir fry.) They have well chilled beer... More

The restaurant is right in the middle of the Night market. They have plenty of crab, shrimp and other seafood jumping around in the baskets in front of the restaurant. We had a choice of several dishes, all more or less ok and in decent portions, wished down with local beer. The bill in my opinion was at least double... More

Don't waste your time if you intend to have crabs or scallops or in fact if you are hungry and want a decent feed. The crab was small ( undersized by Australian standards) and certainly not what was displayed in the "live" basket. Was not fresh either and cost more than 250 hkd. Scallops - 3 for 90 hkd that...

Had a good meal at this restaurant right in the midst of the Temple St market scene. The place was full of locals and some tourists but they still managed to find a table for us on the street - great for people watching. Had a very enjoyable meal washed down with a glass or two of cold beer -... More

Insanely expensive tourist trap for average food. We paid HKD280 for 1x approx. 500g crab. And the prawns were not fresh at all. There are many restaurants nearby with better food.

Surprised to see mixed reviews. This tiny roadside restaurant is my favorite seafood place in Temple St. night market and the food is to die for. You won't miss the place since it's always packed with locals and tourists. Food is fresh and full of flavor and they serve amazing chili crabs! Service is quick and the staff are friendly... More

Although prices reasonable, found food average compared to Temple St Spicy Crab that we'd had a few weeks again. Service was good & quick. Fired prawns with garlic, rubbery and pretty tasteless. Squid of, but oily and although tasty, the choy sum was a bit past it and quite large and tough. Bathroom preset rugged!

After experiencing some five seafood restaurants where the food quality was at best average, I decided to check out the Tong Tai. I have always been hesitant about eating at open-air market restaurants. I walked past two times before deciding to give it a go. What an amazing experience. The service was efficient and friendly. The food was fresh and... More
