    My favorite place to eat in NYC

    This place is incredible... I could eat here every night for dinner. I always get the same dishes, but they never get old. Their dishes are incredibly flavorful. Yum!

    Great Crab

    This place is good good for their crab! My family came here and got their 'Chili Crab'...DE LISH!! Wow...Full of taste and WONDERFUL when you dip the hot, fresh bread in the sauce. The sauce is very well seasoned and like nothing I have had before (you can taste the spicyness but it's not overpowering). I would DEF recommend ordering this dish when going to Fatty Crab...it's one of their signature dishes. Besides that we also got their Malay fish dish which has crab curry. I am not a fan of curry but this dish...wow..was also good. The fish is fresh and fried, tons of seasoning in this dish. Just...WOW. If you like that kind of Malaysian/asian seasoning and curry, DEF try this place out...it is a find! We also got the green mango w/ chili-sugar-salt appetizer which was interesting but OK in my books. I would recommend the other two dishes....those blew me away more!

    Packed in like crabs!!

    Food= average for a malaysian restaurant, Servers= busy sat night, but stilll very overworked Atmosphere= this is what really pissed me off about this place, to a point I will not return. Our party of two was seated at a table which was a part of a long row of tables with no spaces between them. This means that in order to get up during your meal to go to the bathroom, not only did the four people adjacent to you immediately know ( and hear your entire dinner conversation), you had to pull the entire table out to get up. Every time someone went to the bathroom, everyone knew! I can understand space is a shortcoming here, but to pack your patrons in like animals is plain disrespectful. I am never eating here again!

    great crab, otherwise mediocre

    The crab with chili is great- as others note, the sauce would be great on anything. The price is fairly ridiculous for the amount of crab involved. The other dishes (mussels, ribs, mango salad) are fine but nothing exceptional and nothing that can't be obtained elsewhere in NY for less money and without what can be a long wait in the evening. The service is good, though.

    Not recommended

    So my friend and I were out looking for this place that we heard so many reviews upon and wanted to try it for ourselves. I had the fish soup. The soup was hot, while the fish was cold! My friend had the duck which was also a disappointing entree. It had no flavor. We were so hungry and desparate, that we tried our best to fill ourselves with these disappointing dishes. It literally felt like we were eating left overs. The only thing about the night that actually went right was our server. Eveything else, simply did not LIVE UP TO IT'S EXPECTATION...

    Great chili sauce

    The chili crab is good... i also love the sauce with rice better than the crab itself... the other dishes are not impressive: crispy pork + watermelon salad is pretty disappointing. there was another fish entree, which came on banana leaf... the fish itself was ok, but the portion was kind of small

    One of my favorites.

    I adore the fatty crab---regardless of what some of the naysayers may think. favorite dishes = mango w/chili & salt as an appetizer, mussels (w/tons of yummy black pepper) and, of course, the fatty crab. i just can't get enough of the sauce the crab comes with. i'm more content eating the sauce w/bread than the crab itself! the place gets packed, so if you're impatient you'll have to come early. and while i've read some reviews claiming shoddy service, i think each and every person that's helped me has been nothing but helpful (not to mention easy on the eyes).
