I love their chicken wings and of course the crab with their toast. It's my go-to restaurant if I want crab. Not a fancy place but decent enough. Be there by 6pm otherwise long queue to get a table

This is the place to eat crab in Petaling Jaya. The crab is fresh and succulent. They serve crab in sweet and sour sauce and kam heong beside fried rice and chicken wings. The sauce is out if the world and best eaten with toasted bread. This corner shoplot is very popular with all races. You must come early before... More

The crabs (and sauce)!here beats the singapore chilli crab in my view! We usually do a takeaway so would just order over the phone and pick it up 30-40 min later.

The restaurant was already full house at 5pm when they open for dinner. No reservation allow.

We, 2 adults, 13 & 8 yrs old, ordered a plate of steam crab, spicy crab, spicy prawn, small... More

The place is teeming with people who are there for the crabs as evidenced by the presence of crab dishes on every table. It only serves crabs prepared in two ways. I had the sweet and sour crab. The sauce tastes good and a bit spicy. The crab is reasonably fresh and firm to the bite. But the crabs are... More

Went on a business dinner with some locals. One word - 'sensational.' I love these sort of places. Very basic furniture and decor, but fantastic atmosphere and food. Although the crabs and prawns were great, the chicken wings and satay were brilliant. The best part of the crab was the sauce (black pepper) which could be mopped up by the... More
