Description: Serving Funky Southeast Asian Inspired Cuisine!We serve our food in an unconventional manner, where there are no appetizers or entrees. The food comes out of the kitchen as it is prepared by the Chef. Therefore, we recommend ordering several dishes off of the menu and encourage sharing. Our cuisine is made up of locally sourced ingredients when available. Our flavor profiles are comprised of spice, sweet, sour, salty, and savory. Our cocktails are just as flavorful and as interesting as our cuisine. All of our wines were sourced from Michael Skurnik Wines and were hand-picked by Michael himself. The wines were selected to complement the wide variety of flavors in our cuisine and they were shipped in temperature controlled containers to ensure the integrity of the wines.We believe this style of dining creates an intimate, comfortable, and fun atmosphere. We serve sophisticated dishes in an unpretentious manner.If you are a diner looking for a traditional dining experience, there are lots of other great restaurants on island, come in for a drink and we'll recommend a few.Live well and be happy!

We had a nice table, staff was kind but food was average to poor. My kids chicken dish was just fried breading no chicken, fried rice was hard, no true great flavoring of dishes. Pork belly was only fat

Should have know when there weren't many people having dinner.
MUSIC is obnoxious and loud.
Food comes out when it is finished not together.
Wife had Ramen, a soup like dish, I had fried chicken. (only chicken on the menu)
Her soup was out 25 minutes before my chicken. The chicken was 5 pieces
on a small plate. That's it. nothing else. KFC gives you more for a lot less.
No one working there knows anything about running a restaurant. I am surprised they are still in business.

Decided to visit Fatty Crab based on user reviews and advertisements of new sushi menu.

Girlfriend paid excessively (even on St. John) for a mediocre sushi roll containing 6 pieces. I was unimpressed by sliders. Would not return.

**staff - as everywhere on St. John - were courteous and professional

Went for dinner with a group of six last week, we shared a bunch of plates: the Spicy beef sliders (BEST slider i ever ate), pad thai, fried rice, beef brisket, tuna poke, a sushi roll, and the greens. You should order three orders of the greens, so good! Everything was delicious, server was friendly, cocktails were wonderful. Cannot wait to go back again on our trip next year!

Don't let the location fool you, cute place, great food. Sushi was fabulous. At first look I wasn't excited about the menu selection but in the end very glad we went, food was really, really good.
