The place for Crab

If you want crab this is the place for it . The floor is quite amazing you get to see the Koi fish swim . The garlic noodles are to die for.

When we sat down 2 of the people I was with immediately ordered the crab without looking at the menu :) they were huge fans and absolutely loved it again. I am not a huge crab fan so I had a new duck dish they just came out with and it was amazing (wasn't yet on the menu). The service... More

Crustacean, on Little Santa Monica Blvd, serves Vietnamese fusion meals that focuses on the principles of Eastern medicine with a balanced “Yin and Yang” approach to their cooking. Their culinary aim is to serve simple, fresh food that is rich in antioxidants and healthy herbs. You can easily spend a lot of money at this restaurant but we ate sensibly... More

The restaurant is quite interesting with an aquarium under the floor as you walk to your table. The food was excellent however the service was lacking and I'm not sure whether it was the kitchen or the waitress. The appetizers came out and one was wrong and we had to wait 10 mins for it to come back. The main... More

I love this restaurant centrally located in Beverly Hills area. They play live music--jazz when i have gone. Lots of celebrities eat there. There is an aquarium underneath your feet for the walkway. The crustacean selections are great and garlic noodles are divine. Service was ok.

LOVE CRUSTACEAN and along with everyone who has ever had them..LOVE THE GARLIC NOODLES! You can order them alone $12 or with Giant Prawns from the Secret Kitchen Menu. You can even order them to go. The ambiance is comfortable and or course there is the walkway with a glass top under which Koi fish swim...don't worry the glass won't... More

Greatly disappointed with our visit to this establishment. To start:The front of the house was rude. If they display men must wear jackets and then don't enforce it... The food was just ok, nothing specatcular after I'd heard great things. Lacking flavor. I MIGHT try the San Francisco location. My husband and I just enjoyed High Tea at The Peninsula... More

This place was beautiful inside.My boyfriend and I went with my family for my cousin's birthday and had great service. I had the beef shanks and they were to die for! So delicious!! My boyfriend had the dragon fried rice which he absolutely loved. Drinks were over priced though! All in all we will definitely be going back!

The atmosphere and food are amazing! Ask for the special menu. The assorted appetizer is a great way to get started. The lobster salad is wonderful. The lava chocolate cake is fabulous. Everything is terrific.

Neighborhood Profile
Beverly Hills
Beverly Hills began as a modest village years ago and today you can still feel its small town origins, even though it has become a major tourist attraction and business center for the entertainment industry. This town lives up to its reputation as an area full of designer retail stores and residential streets lined with mansions and palm trees. Inside the commercial center of Beverly Hills, along Rodeo Drive, droves of tourists peak into ultra-luxurious boutiques hoping to catch a glimpse of someone famous. Off of Rodeo Drive however is where some of the most affluent Angelenos occupying the streets of Beverly Hills come for leisurely meals, power lunches and beauty treatments.
