Feeling crabby? Crazy Crabs wants to help.

1 Crazy Crabs

Linked in ownership to the team behind Tom, Dick & Harry’s as well as The Royal Flush, this new seafood restaurant features a facade that’s shrewdly striking; its interior is more conservative …

2 Crazy Crabs

… though customers can still take pleasure in the scenic view of Oasis Ara Damansara’s fountains.

Four Preparation Styles of Crab

The name “Crazy Crabs” might be catchy but it fails to extend so far to the kitchen’s creativity; four preparations are currently available: the familiar, risk-free choices of butter milk, kam heong, steamed & salt-baked. We picked the first, more mild-tasting than expected, perhaps to let the crab’s natural sweetness shine more perceptibly.

4 Crazy Crabs

These crabs taste fine; they’re satisfyingly fresh & fleshy. Still, budget-conscious customers might consider looking elsewhere; the minimum order of one kilogram (which provided us with two crabs) costs RM80++.

Roti Bakar

Mantou steamed buns are not offered yet. Roti bakar costs RM1++ per slice.

6 Crazy Crabs

Sang Har Tung Fun

Need more crustaceans? The ‘sang har tung fun” (RM45++ for the smallest serving) is tasty …

7 Crazy Crabs

Crab Legs

… with the unexpected bonus of crab legs to bolster the flavor further.

8 Crazy Crabs

Lala Mee Hoon

Lala mee hoon (RM14++ for small). Edible, though it borders surprisingly close on blandness.

9 Crazy Crabs

Beverages

Longan-&-sugarcane juice. RM13++ for a carafe that should suffice for two.

10 Crazy Crabs

Wine at The Royal Flush

Wine can be ordered from The Royal Flush nearby; the cheapest choice clocks in at a painful RM38++ by the glass.

Final Thoughts

All in all, we enjoyed our meal at Crazy Crabs, though it’s debatable whether the price tag that exceeded RM220 (including the glass of wine) was entirely well-merited. But with weeks of Lunar New Year festive feasting ahead, the restaurant’s owners have a shot at happily reaping hefty rewards.
