The crab and the chicken wings are the best seller in this restaurant. If I remember correctly, they only serve chilli crab and steamed crab, which is still good considerably. However, the crabs seems to be getting more expensive, where two person dining can cost up to a hundred. Chicken wing is really good as well, but could cost up... More

When eating here, one should be dressed comfortably and don't expect 5 star hospitality & service; just go, get a table, order, eat, pay & leave. On weekends, it would be best if you could make reservations especially if you are there with a large group. Only limited menu, spicy sour crabs & I'm sure there's another sytle of crabs... More

We enjoyed a great dinner of spicy crab, garlic prawns (some of the best I ever had), chicken and beef satay and fried rice. That covers pretty much everything on the menu except steamed fish - but that would be too much for 2 people. Everything was tasty, especially prawns and of course crab. A generous dinner for 2 with... More

There are places that live on their reputations and this establishment is one of them. Fatty Crab used to be well known for it's signature crab dish. The past tense being operative. I was sorely disappointed when I visited with some friends. The crabs were measly and fleshless and the preparation lackluster. We were given fish that was far from... More

Reading other reviews I wonder what people's expectations are of such a place. It is obviously NOT five star, so why expect five star service? The people who work there are BUSY. They are not going to fawn all over you... tell them what you want and get on with it. If you can't flag someone down, just wait --... More

For those who enjoy crabs with other assortments of fried rice, satay and toast (to soak the crab sauce with).

Yes, they are truly different. The sauce is fabulously delicious! If only the crabs are meatier. We struggled to get the flesh. The roti bakar served with the crabs makes the dish even more. special. Chicken wings and prawns were also good. Highly recommend this place for dinner. Just be prepared to join the queue for a table. No reservations... More

Tried the crabs for decades and they just disappoint us each time. Noticed that queue was getting longer and longer too (surprisingly haih). Service was terrible. Staff were rather rude and ignorant of basic sanitation. Food was so-so only, bread rather stale & fried rice too oily. Satay was poor. Crabs were average but greatly overpriced. For the price and...

This is one of the best places to eat crabs in the Klang Valley. The menu is limited but everything that is served here is good. The chilli crabs is the star dish here. Prices are on the high side but you can be assured of quality. Be sure to go early before 7pm or be ready for a long... More

Chilli crabis not one of my favourite dish. In general, eating crab is not something I like. But this place, I would have to recommend! Went here with few friends. Ordered some prawns, fried rice and of course their chilli crab! Asked about menus, they have none. And they do not have vegetable dish. After trying out their chilli crab... More
