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

This restaurant is located under the famous "goose neck" bridge nearby the times squares at the causeway bay. The waiter will ask you how spicy u want your crabs to be, however please not be over adventurous to order the crabs prepared in the medium or strong spicy manner otherwise you will be overwhelmed by the strong spiciness of the...

Wonderful food at reasonable price. The food was excellent. The service was good (it could have been better if they had spoken fluent english). The ambiance was not that great but the taste of food compensated the same.

Hong King food is actually much of process food (can lunchean meat, can baked beans and more) and this place certainly served you the BEST fresh Hong Kong food. I am not a fan of crab due to the "heavy duty" work needed to eat it, but trust me, this is the best crab I ever had. Everything on the... More

My wife loves spicy crab and swears by this Resturant . I enjoy the deep-fried spare ribs, fresh greens and salted fish fried rice... and the odd morsel of crab I get passed. I find crab too much hard work and much prefer the perfectly cooked prawns readily found in HK. Very little/ no English spoken by staff. Pleasant surprise... More

Went here late after arriving in HK. It was recommended by staff at our hotel. Most of the food ordered was delicious - especially a prawn dish, it was very fresh & light. We didn't feel like crab - maybe next time!! We ordered a Sichuan chicken dish which was awful, none of us could eat it, very oily and... More

Great crab served in a variety of yummy ways. The decor and staff aren't great, but that's what makes it so typical, so much so that it's a favourite among the locals too. The menu is extensive and everything is top quality!

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.
