This place is a part of the big Chaya Tranz Hotel. They have several restaurants but are all way overpriced. The Crab is no different. The food (I had a crab curry) tasted no better than the crab curries I've had to half the price in many other beach restaurants. A big bowl of full crabs drenched in a curry sauce served with a tiny salad and white rice. I would have like a small portion of vegetable curry with the crab.

BUT the service from the staff was excellent and they are clearly welltrained. They also have an open kitchen that is very clean looking so you feel more comfortable eating the seafood.

But unfortunately way overpriced!
