Tried out this restaurant on a Sunday evening. Truly, parking is a nightmare on Sundays, especially when there was night market going on. Arrived there about 6.30pm, there was already 30 plus people on Q, joined in the Q and managed to get a table within 35 mins later. During Q, middle aged lady will take down your order (mainly...

My local friends brought me and my husband here to sample the local cuisine. I was told this was some sort of delicacy not found in Perth, and they were right! It is not. I have had crabs at Freemantle before and it was not cooked this way. It is apparently cooked with spicy chilli sauce. I was not a... More

The price is way worth it. Aside from their famous crab, i love their fried chicken, yang chow rice and steamed fish as well. It makes me hungry just thinking about it. Highly recommended. Go here at around 5pm to avoid the long line.

Are you thinking this is another overrated shop in town? Most probably you're wrong this time! This is a must try place in PJ if you're a seafood lover! Do try out their sweet and sour crabs, it was my favourite ever since young! Let's have a crabie night with some delicious crabs ! Hugs, J

The queue was long but it was well the wait as the crab, fired rice, satay & chicken wings were delicious. I would recommend coming in early to escape the wait for a table.

The queue at this restaurant is always long and please make sure you plan your meal at this restaurant as timely as possible. Seafood is fresh, portion is generous and since the business is so brisk, do not expect the best service in town. You gotta try it out to have a feel of what I am saying.

Located less than10minutes driving from Kota Damansara. The freshly crabs cooked in the much "at home" way are served generously with tomatoes, spring onions, ginger and wine sauces. Yummy, we just simply can't help ourselves to order 1 more serving :D

If you know what to expect it's a great experience - great food and rushed service (can be interpreted as unfriendly, but not personally). 2 crabs, fried rice, satays, toast and chicken wings, $40 total. All food is tasty and fresh. We got lucky and didn't even have to line up (8pm on a Wednesday night). There were no other... More

i've been going to Fatty Crab in Taman Megah for almost 20 years now. Their sauce is to die for. It is gonna be a messy dining experience but it's worth it. If you're eating in especially on Fri-Sun, make sure you come early or be prepared to wait a long time for a table. They open at 6 and... More

Fatty Crab has been around for a long time. Unpretentious, functional, maybe even basic but DELICIOUS! Inventory is easy on the owners as the menu is simple and limited-to a few good items! Of course the Crabs are excellent. It is the sauce that it is cooked in. A hint of ginger, perhaps, chili padi for sure, tamarind and garlic,... More
