One of the best seafood experiences you can have. The sauce is amazing. Generously served. All the side dishes also really great like the corn dish and soft shell. Will bring a lot of people back!!

Fun experience - a little strange sitting down to a meal with no cutlery (gloves and a bib provided) but once you get into it a great way to eat ! We will be back to try more options.

Mud crabs were sold out when we visited the restaurant but the Abalone was really great. We ordered it twice.

When we got there, live crab and yabbies had ran out bearing in mind my booking was 7pm on Father's Day. I didnt appreciate the 10% Sunday surcharge either. I won't be in a rush to come back.

First of all. We go in and it's a wreck, cold, broken stool. This seriously affects the mood of eating. Secondly, the ordering is not professional, there is no good set menu, and the ordering waiter does not recommend or suggest what to order (and the boss does not train). In addition, the taste is general, the quality and freshness are general. All three of us didn't like it. We won't go again.

The food is not hot and doesn't taste fresh at all.

Great food but let down by the sour faced servers and inflexibility. Servers were not friendly and we were confused at the lack of enthusiasm. Real let down considering the food was very tasty

Food was nice but overpriced and the size can be improved. The service wasn't great, busy talking with other staff members.

The staff was rude, when we order an extra steam rice, the staff served it on our table and she put it down on top of my friend tomatoes sauce, while my friend was eating, she even didn’t said sorry to my friend or smile, the steam rice bowl was messed with the tomatoes sauce. And the store wasn’t busy that time. we won’t be back!!!

For some reason, people think fishermen like to tell stories.
Well, our fishermen don’t. While all the other crabbers and captains were packed into the local bar boozing and swapping sea tales, ours were back home, playing with spices and boiling the best of their fresh catch for the family. OK, they were probably drinking, too.
We might not always have the time to tell our story since we started in 2004, but we still write it down every day.
It’s written in Sha-bang sauce all over your bib and with beer spilt across the table. Every face in here has our story written on it in smiles and smears. Because the best stories aren’t just told, they’re tasted and lived.
