Anthony bourdain loved it. He's an expert so I guess my opinion matters that much less. So I go here every time I go to Hong Kong. There's a few different ones that are copycats next to the one bourdain went to. Id day they are pretty much all the same when it comes to the spicy crab. Some are... More

Bi Feng Tang Crab and whatever else they lace with it will taste good. Think massive amounts of minced garlic fried with herbs until golden brown when the scent is sweet and pungent with a levels of spice from chilis. This is what this place does better than anyone else and made them a legend for it. Frankly the garlic... More

This very large restaurant is like many Chinese restaurants in that it doesn't really cater for individual diners. Every dish is designed for family eating and sharing, so you really can't order anything more than one dish and you'll struggle to eat it. I didn't have the crab, which is their speciality, but I did have an excellent roast duck... More

This made it on our "must-eat" list prior to visiting Hong Kong. We had friends recommend it and more importantly, Anthony Bourdain had been there. We went as a group of 3 adults and one child. There are two locations and when we arrived at the first location, they sent us to the second one. I have a sneaking suspicion... More

If you profess to be a seafood fan, go. If you want to know who seriously the Asians take their seafood, go. Heck, just go. One tip: instead of ordering the bigger crabs, order two small ones, you'll get more claws and I have this experience (twice) that actually the bigger crabs do not yield more edible meat.

This restaurant is very popular & I'm not sure if you can make a booking. We arrived without a booking & were shown to a table on the 3rd level. From what I could see the bottom 2 levels did not have a spare seat. As it was we had to wait a few minutes for our table to be... More

A local took a group here for dinner. We didn't have a booking but were very lucky to have 9 of us go in right away and were given a private room. The service was very good. Although we did have a local and didn't have to speak english. But the waiter did speak a few words and tried his... More

Food was delicious although on the greasier side. The namesake spicy crab is definitely the highlight here. That being said, the service is pretty terrible. As international as Hong Kong is, the restaurant seemed to only have a single person who spoke english and mandarin. I had friends already at the restaurant and it took quite a while to find...

Went to this restaurant upon recommendation of a food blog, and was not disappointed. Smallest sized crab came with a mountain of fried garlic, onion leeks, and chili peppers, is good for 2 to 3 people sharing. The crab may be small, but is packed with meat. If you order past 10 p.m., their roast specialities are discounted making a... More

I decided to try this restaurant on a recommendation from a friend. It was only 10 min walk from where I was staying so I left the hotel to get there about 15 min after the 6pm opening time. I was glad I did as it filled up very quickly with the downstairs area full before 6:30 and a steady... More

Staying in Wan Chai / Causeway Bay

Neighborhood Profile
Wan Chai / Causeway Bay
Wan Chai and Causeway Bay are the retail centers of Hong Kong Island. Filled with shops, malls and restaurants, both areas are bustling with people – tourists and locals alike. Causeway Bay has one of the highest rents on the planet, and is a bit more polished and modern than its Wan Chai counterpart. Beneath the surface there is more than meets the eye – find boutique stores in the above ground floors of buildings and wander into side streets to find interesting restaurants and shops tucked away from the main roads. Wan Chai especially has experienced a modern revival in recent times, with an influx of trendy restaurants and bars around the Star Street area. In addition, both areas contain many of Hong Kong’s iconic tourist attractions worthy of your visit.
