Yummy, Messy, Oily, Pricey.
That about sums it up. The sauces are really fantastic, perhaps helped by the fact that we eat with our hands (I think it makes food yummier). Certain seafoods go better with certain sauces, ask the servers for tips. (like salted egg yolk sauce doesn't go with prawn and squid) We love the fried cauliflower.
That said everything is very messy (but that's fine) and the sauces are actually REALLY oily. You can feel your pores leaking oil once you're done. Its dreadfully sinful.
Worst part is how pricey this place is. We've developed some tips for people who want to save some money.
- Order the spiced rice ($2 for a big cup). Its one of the cheapest things there and certainly more filling than a potato ($1 for one small potato).
- Water is NOT provided. Bring your own water in a bottle, and never order the drinks. Ice tea costs $4.50 per cup (that's not including service charge and GST) Unless you want alcohol (which we never order so we have no idea if its cheap)
- The crab price is astronomical and not worth it for the tiny-ness of the crab. Stick wtih basicsk like prawn, squid, clams.
