Must-try dishes are the stuffed crabs, foo yong fried egg and fried rice. Their tom yum soup is fiery hot, so you need to be careful not to drink in one gulp.

Stop here for lunch during a stopover in Kuantan. Ordered Stuffed Crab, Salt Baked Prawn, fish, fish ball soup and verges. Food wise is average. Prawn at RM 16 each is pricy! Next time will try the restaurant two doors away, Restoran Malaysia, which was told that they are better.

We had stuffed crab, steamed fish and mixed vegetables. The crab was moist and light and the fish really tender. I'll definitely be back the next time we're nearby. Service was quick and attentive. Only thing that could improve it - a cold beer.

Ordered one stuffed crab since haven't had one for awhile. Luckily only ordered one, not great. The baked cheese tiger prawns was delicious. As was the fried rice. Baby kailan was okay. Always a busy place though I had no trouble getting the waiter attention. On the pricier side.

I went to this place about a weeks ago. The atmosphere was busy but we only waited about 3 minutes to be seated. Our waiter didn't pay us too much attention though. The stuff crabs lacked flavor and inside stuffing was cold .The service left much to be desired. This place isn't good on service but the food was ok.

Dropped by on a trip to Cherating and tried out their stuffed crab. Was disappointed as it wasn't up to the expectation and a little on the pricey side. Other dishes was alright. Staff there wasn't very friendly either.

I went to Tong Juan for lunch with a group of 12 on 9 August 2013. It was crowded as expected as it is a public holiday. As such the food was relatively slow, as expected. Most of us came here about 5 years ago. So compared to that, the quality of the stuffed crab was not as it used... More
