Went to the Fatty crab after a visit to Bake with Yen to buy some baking items. This was friday evening. By the time the clock struck 20:00 hours the place was packed. Went again on Sunday 16th March at 19:45- had to wait for an hour for a place. Food is delicious - Must haves are sweet and sour... More

This is my go to place for spicy piping hot crabs. They make em mouthwateringly hot and they do it right. It's one of those open style, red table clothed type of restaurant (red, with numerous holes from battle worn scars with the crab) that they change with every new customer to be seated at the table. They only serve... More

i came with my friends all the time when we're craving for crabs. even though the fried rice is just okay, the chilli sauce crab and chicken wings are fantastic. however, there's always a long queue waiting to be served. i guess this is proof that this is the best crab restaurant in Selangor.

It has been like this in the last few years but it's worth the trouble... The crabs are good and the hot gravy is out of this world! Don't forget the toast! The prawns are as good but don't forget the fried rice...

Can't understand the complaints. When we went there the chicken wings and the crab were great and the service very good. It may have helped that we were with regulars who spoke the lingo but there was about 10 of us. I suppose it depends on timing

We visited Fatty Crab on a weekday and sat down straight away. The chicken wings as a starter was a good choice as the crab took some time to get on the table. Crab was ok, but the gravy was very very tasty. Ordered some fried rice and toast to dip in the gravy and done. Great meal. Would definitely... More

Firstly, the choices of food are kinda less. I think not over 10 foods can be eaten at there. Crabs only come with 2 cooking style. The portion of the fried rice is pathetic. Everything is overpriced. The most important thing is suck service. The staff even yell to us. I never went to a restaurant which the staff will... More

I gotta repeat this - they do serve super awesome crab in a delicious sauce which is finger and plate licking good! Do away with the rice. Just order the crab and a few other dishes and you will have a truly enjoyable dinner. While waiting, do order the fried chicken wings from another stall. Be forewarned that parking and... More
