“Try the stuffed crabs...”
Reviewed October 7, 2012

On a recommendation from a friend, tried the stuffed crabs here. It was delicious, albeit you gotta pour a bit of the chilli sauce to the fillings, to enhance the flavour.

Stuffed crabs are priced at RM8 per crab. 1 pax should be able to consume 2 crabs.

Overall, a really interesting food outing at this restaurant...

Not bad but not quite healthy. My colleagues enjoyed the dishes though. Very oily dishes. Specialty are stuffed crabs and garlic prawns. Not quite on my recommendation list.

“Tried on the recommendation of hotel”
Reviewed August 14, 2012

The food tasted average but prices was ok. The specialty of the house was stuffed crab. The stuffed crab has plenty of crab meat stuffing but it was bland. Probably need a special chilli dip to go with it.

“Overpriced, very average”
Reviewed August 12, 2012

We had dinner at Tong Juan couple of nights ago and quite frankly I don't get what the fuss was about. Food was average (yes including the stuffed crabs!!) and shockingly overpriced. Seems to be the only place in the vicinity that gets a lot of press and hence a lot of business out of it, otherwise just a mediocre restaurant and I'd give it a miss the next time round.
