    Great prawns and crabs. Really fresh! And competitively priced. Dining environment was much nicer than Asian restaurants in Chinatown or Richmond. However, if you like spicy, as for extra, as the default spice in the laksa and other dishes was too mild to be authentic Malaysian. Probably for an Aussie tolerance of spiciness!

    Great food, and especially the crab dishes. Atmosphere is nice as well. Will definitely go back to try other dishes and recommend it to friends.

    Their mud crab dishes were fabulous and we would definitely return for the crabs. Our table for the night unfortunately was in a corner making it hard to get the attention of the staff and we had to get up to the counter numerous times for service.

    The service was excellent. There is a Monday-Friday lunch special, which is very good and cheap. Unfortunately I went on a Saturday and therefore I paid much more! The food was very good especially the crabs and the fried rice noodles.

    Great half price crab meal with a variety of flavours! I'm allergic to seafood, but my family and friends all enjoyed it.

    I was very disappointed with the overall experience. The first course was served late and the main meal was served late and not as I had requested. One main dish of Okra was not brought to the table and when asked why they had no answer. I have been there once before with my family from Sydney and it was really good and so I brought my boss Dr D and I was not at all happy with last nights dining experience. I will not come again.

    poor service. I don't think the waiters have much experience in doing the job. a few dishes were too salty

    Great food in a convenient location! While there was no one else there when we dined, we couldn't help but think it would be a great place for a family function - good ambience

    Crab is always fresh and amazing. Coconut prawns are consistently good and the staff remember our love for chillies from our last visit!

    Great food, not only the crab that we enjoyed but all other dishes were delicious. Good value too as we only spent less than 300 for 7 people.

    A crab house which there aren't that many in Melbourne. Every dish was a bit too sweet for me and we thought we were going to get four buns with our crab dish but instead it was only one bun cut up into four pieces. Considering how much we were spending on the crab, we thought that was a bit stingy.
