Fatty Crab is one of my must-visit restaurants whenever I am in Malaysia, now that I have told you, I bet the queue will get even longer, so go early. My sister and I are crazy about Fatty Crab, so we are there before others, at 5.30pm. This restaurant does not boast of variety, but speciality. The crabs come in... More

This is one of the few restaurants that I would patronized for crab dishes. The last time that I visited this eatery was DEC14. I love the chilly crab (their signature dish) and soak the mantou into the crab gravy. Delicious! The fried chicken wings in the restaurant is one of the better ones I have tried in KL/PJ.

Love the famous chili crab here! It was utterly divine, especially when you soak the toasted bread in the chili crab gravy. Crispy on the outside and soft inside with the tangy gravy gently tickling your taste buds. Absolutely addictive!

The experience started with a 65 minute wait for a table. After we sat down, it took another 35 minutes before our meal came and this was after orders had been taken whilst were in the queue! But, more importantly, did the anticipation match the culinary experience? Unfortunately, answer's no. South Pacific (before it closed its doors) was infinitely better... More

Must be the best place in town to get your fix on crab. The price is so reasonable, by far the best place to get crab in PJ. We had ours in the infamous chilli sauce, which can be mopped up with toasted bread. We also had chicken wings which was just yummy and the chinese fried rice. My 6... More

Menu comprises: satay, crabs, chicken wings, steamed fish and garlic prawns and we ate them all! Everything was delicious and service was prompt. No chance of any veg and if you can't see it on the big board then it isn't on the menu! Much hammering (of crab claws) and laughter, the place is packed with people enjoying a good... More

Service and food is great. Worth waiting in the long queue with the crowd. This is a great place for crab lovers like me....table full of crabs cooked in different ways. So far the tastiest dish is Chilli Crab and it compliments well with toast bread. Reasonable price for fresh and meaty crabs. Choice of open dining at ground floor... More
