We waited in a queue for around half an hour but it was worth it. Make sure you order the shrimp (both steamed and garlic) and the crab was ridiculously tasty as well as the rice, and I recommend the sugar cane juice.

Get here early for your crabs that you may spend a while and enjoy every scrumptious succulent molasses. It's famous chilli crab is slightly different than others. The sauce is richer, smoother and little tangy. Perfect accompaniment to the succulent flesh of the crabs, and nice contrast with the toasts. Also famous its yummy fried rice and the chicken wings!... More

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
