Again, just like sarrangani highlands resto, poor service. Food takes around 1 to 2 hrs to be served. The taste of the food is not worth the wait. The taste of the crabs are ordinary. Nothing special. The place is also hot ( only 1 aircon was working). Not coming back again here.

This review is about Grab-A-Crab in Robinsons. Their crab is 130 pesos/100g, and we ordered a 500g crab, so the price should be 130*5=650 pesos. However, when I checked my bill, it was 1,000+ pesos.

Well the food was just ok and expensive. End of story. I would not return here for a meal. But the locals seem to like it. Service was friendly.

I've been to other high end restaurants that serve good proportions with unforgettable taste. They could improve more. Maybe they should try equating their classy façade with the food they serve.

A gensan staple. You'll never go wrong with their chinese dishes. The seafood- vegetable dish is always 'spot on' good!!! The main branch badly needs an upgrade though.
