I cannot for the life of me understand why this place is always packed. In fact over the weekends the queue starts from as early as 6pm. Yes the crabs are good but prices keep going up. The menu is very limited with a few types of crabs, one type of fish and one type of prawn. No vegetables even.... More

Obviously the crab with its spicy sauce is the specialty and staple diet but you can enjoy chicken wings or satay as well as their own mixed fried rice washed down by iced sugar cane.

We can enjoy too sweet chili crab. If you love much sugar, enjoy this restaurant. I do not like too much sweet crab.

Delicious chili crabs, minimum order of 1.5 katis at rm 48 per kati. The fried rice is popular too. Round up the meal with juicy grilled chicken wings. Restaurant opens from 5.30 pm. Expect a long queue, especially during the weekends.

Limited choices in the menu but the signature sweet sour (and spicy) crab is a must try. Do also order the fried rice or / and toast bread to go with the sweet and sour (and spicy) source. It's always crowded especially during weekends and public holiday and there are not really a good seating system. The wait is for... More

I ordered the seafood platter and it was outrageously fine. The two blue crabs were small but tasty. They fried clams and oysters for me as opposed to serving them raw. To snow crab clusters I have a dozen shrimp. French fries were crispy and Polish more tasty. Fresh corn was fresh.
