Crab Seafood Restaurant Sdn Bhd – A Dinner Outing During Earth Hour

It was Earth day and my sister wanted to take my family out for dinner. Actually we planned to eat in another restaurant at Dataran Sunway, Kota Damansara but found that it has changed owner. Anyway, since we are already in the area, we decided to check out Crab Seafood Restaurant which is directly opposite the famous Vichuda (HQ Damansara Utama) branch restaurant. Since it a little late and we are not familiar with the dishes in this restaurant, we just order the set dinner which cost RM188. The restaurant is under staffed and they have a few inexperience waiters/waitresses. So you can expect things to be a bit disorganised! It was peak dinner time and we waited quite some time for our food. However, when the first dish of fried rice arrived, it really changed our perception about the restaurant and its’ service. The fried rice is nice with a tinge of ‘wok hei’ aroma. Since everyone was already very hungry, we finished the fried rice real fast!

Here is the review on the other dishes in the set dinner menu.

Next, the Butter and Milk Cod fish was served. The gravy is nice and creamy. Curry powder is added to this flavorful gravy. Actually, I used to cook this type of dish using tilapia (St Peter’s Fish) but this is the first time I ate it with cod fish. Everyone agreed that this dish is delicious! Thumbs up!

The Crispy Indonesian Chicken is topped with sweet and sour kerabu. It is a totally new taste to me. The chicken is deep fried with flour and spices. The contrast of the savoury and crispy fried chicken against the sweet, sour and spicy kerabu is very unique! Another thumb up!

Yam Basket Chicken There is nothing to shout about this dish except that the yam is nicely done and taste good.

Special Chilli Crab with Buns I normally would not order sweet and sour crab but the taste of this crab dish surprised me a little. It really taste good compared to the ones that I have eaten in other restaurant. I love to dip the bun (muntou) in the rich gravy.......taste heavenly! The crab is full of flesh and sweet! Hong Kong Kailan with Oyster sauce The cook actually fried the Hong Kong Kailan with a little dried chilly. This adds a nice unique aroma to this dish. Another thumb up! A Comlimentary fruit platter which is part of the set meal was served after we ate our dinner. We ordered a side dish of Tomyam Bihun (rice vermicelli) but it came late. By that time we were already stuffed! Anyway, my son and I ate the tomyam bihun. The taste, ok only lah! The total bill came up to be RM208.50 for 6 adults and 2 children. Overall the food is nice and tasty. They have to hire more experienced staff and improve the service.

The cod fish is very special. Normally, restaurant here served steam and when it turns cold, it has a very strong fishy smell. Yucks. The crabs are yummy! wow...

I like salted egg crabs and prawns!

I like salted egg bitter gourd as welll.

Hmmm, they sound very salty but are actually very balanced, well, the good restaurants do, at least.

The price there is reasonable. Must check it out one day. Thanks to your review, I know what I can order once seated.
