    Kankun Garlic, leek fried rice, dark chocolate biscuit pudding are excellent! So are the garlic pepper prawns and chili pepper crab. Passion fruit juice is fresh squeezed and add-your-own-sugar :)

    Great survive and classics atmosphere . The crab wasn't cheap but it's worth to it! Crab with Garlic chili and prawn rice was best combination. Beer is so cheap there only 190Rs.

    Beautiful, vibrant place. Good service. Had the 1/2 kilo garlic chilli crap and was outstanding but ridiculously painful to eat. A warning to crap beginners but definitely worth the journey.

    Every detail is handled by perfection..... I'm not a real fan of crab but the way it is presented and the taste is great... Anyway that explains why it is always full....

    Chili crab in the smallest size is perfect for one person. Savor the succulent, sweet meat and sop up the chili sauce with kade bread. Wash it all down with an ice cold beer. Pure bliss!

    By Christ my large chilli crab lived up to its name in every way. And this is from a thai food lover and vindaloo specialist. It's was a physical, mental and financial battle which was well worth it.

    We ordered two medium chili crabs, one medium curry crab & a medium pepper (extra pepper) crab & it was perfect for our party of four (medium crabs are more tender & juicy). Meal was EXCELLENT!!!!)

    The place deserved a waiting list, refreshingly unairconditioned, it let's you soak in the unique ambience. The crabs are to die for, don't miss the freshly baked bread as well !!

    The crabzilla unfortunately was not available. We had 3 small crabs made in pepper sauce, garlic chilli and chilli sauce. Garlic chilli one was exceptional. Love the taste of those fresh crabs

    the chilli crab is delightful with garlic rice, lots of patience and time for any crab size over a medium, and always ask for more than one finger bowl at the end

    You need to make reservation before dinner. It's always full house. Crab is super huge and it can go as big as my head! Menu is limited. The crab worth the money thou. Other dish taste so so.

    Maybe the best crab I've had..? The miso butter sauce is amaazzzesssss. You definitely pay for it but I think it's worth the price.

    Book a table. Jumbo garlic cooked crab is absolutely amazing. Get some bread/plain rice to go with it and KanKun greens. Dip bread/rice in crab garlic oil.)

    Have the butter and soy black tiger prawn as a starter to whet your appetite, and use the prawn heads to scoop up the extra sauce! Fantastic!

    Love the atmosphere,Menu is Very Limited! but the food was o.k, Prawn Rice was really nice, Leek Fried Rice, not so much. Spicy crab and spicy Prawns dishes are not that spicy. ask fr extra spice

    Tasty big crab, other dishes small portions and some confusion with the waiter/orders and unwanted add ons ie. bread. Otherwise nice ambience and friendly service.

    Prawns are overshadowed by the crab but equally delicious - and much easier to eat!

    Crabs are really really fresh. Flavours were average. And it's quite pricey. I don't like the farmed prawns, but the soy butter prawn sauce was amazing.

    Go somewhere else. It's very oily food. Branding is on point and that's what you are paying for. When you consider cost, it's our least favorite meal and wouldn't recommend to friends.
