Salted Egg Crab!

I love that food. And maybe that's their most famous menu. I don't like the ambiance, too crowd, and always crowd.

You pick your own seafood from the aquarium tank & they cook it for you. We had spicy escargot; deep fried & grill fish; boneless crabs; salted fermented eggs crab. I felt like I'm heaven, typing this just makes my mouth watery ;)

Great place for seafood lovers. Try the fish, shrimp and crabs. They will never let you down. Clean place and fast service. But a bit pricy.

We came here for a big family dinner to celebrate my aunt's birthday. Food and service lacking as the restaurant was very busy even though they had so many staff. They sang her a happy birthday song as the cake was brought out to our table. Overall, it was a bit pricey but will give it another chance
