Tried this crab restaurant on the recommendation of a friend. Had no problem getting a fairly last-minute reservation, and when we arrived, we were seated right away. The server was very friendly and helpful - answering our questions about the various flavors. There were three of us (adults)...we ordered the "Dinner for Two" and a side dish of Five-spice Chicken. The Dinner included a (large!) roasted crab (with the garlic butter), but first you get a very tasty Vietnamese shredded cabbage/chicken salad, and four Imperial Rolls...the cabbage was enough for each of the three of us to have an ample serving...and the Imperial Rolls were delicious - light, tasty and perfectly crispy. Then came the (large!) crab...very, very good! Messy...but there were bibs and hot towelettes afterward to clean up with. The Five Spice Chicken was delicious...a great choice to augment the crab dinner, or for anyone who doesn't care for shellfish. The Garlic noodles (also included in the Dinner for Two) were delish - and plenty for the three of us to share. Finally, there was dessert (yes...included!) - lightly battered fried banana pieces served with ice cream. We didn't think that fried bananas sounded appealing when we saw it on the menu, but it was wonderful - and just the perfect sweet ending to the meal. Oh - you can order the Dinner with your choice of crab preparations - Roasted Garlic, Pepper, or Spicy.
The crab a la carte was $40...the complete meal for two, with the salad, the Imperial Rolls, the crab, the garlic noodles, and the dessert, was $54.95...the chicken was about $15 or so...can't remember exactly. Granted, we're moderate eaters, not really big appetites...but still, the three of us were very satisfied...for $70. Maybe too pricey for an every day restaurant, but (IMHO) very reasonable for this type of specialty crab house in SFO.
