Why it is so hot recently?

1. Reasonable price for seafood as low as RM15 per dish ; Scallop, prawn, squid, clams, fish and etc. You can view their menu here ; Eva's Food Diary

2. Their crazy mud crab price as below ;
Both of photo from their FB
  • M size = RM50+ first plate with 3 medium sized crab, 2nd plate order for RM30+ only
  • XXL size = RM90 per kilo (We ordered 2 and it is about 1.3kgs - RM117)
Yesterday was my dad birthday so we decided to go for a try since it is really near our house and it is weekdays which everyone suggest to go on weekdays which we dont have to queue too long for table. We reach around 8.10pm and it was full but no queue, take note if you plan to dine in with big family this is not the place you finding for, we have 10person with a infant and they doesnt have any big round table to fit us in nor long table enough for us, so they open 2 small round table outdoor for us. It is really hard to eat since we are eating as a family and we have to keep on changing dishes or passing stuff from table to table. And they dont accept early booking/reservation for table, only walk in.

Then we seated and starting ordering, not much to variety except for the crab flavors. The boss himself look tired, doesnt sound so energetic and didnt not really give much suggestion while we are thinking what to order.

What we order ;
Medium roe crab x2 plate
XXL crab x2 (1.3kgs)
Fried scallops
Butter milk prawn
2x tofu thick soup
2x type of squid (fried and nyonya curry kinda stuff)
Fried prawn roe
Fried tofu
Clams/Lala soup
Spinach soup

When our food came, we are all shock by how small the portion are. Each dishes is the size of 2-3 person. This is why we have to order 2 plate of same dishes, the second plate was order after the dishes came. We didnt took any photo because we are so hungry. The food look very appetizing except the mud crab roe but it doesnt taste as expect. The foods served really fast, food serve one after another.

My experience/review for overall ;

1. All the seafood we ordered not fresh, the crab, squid, scallops and prawn are tasteless. Crab roe should have their own unique taste which we Cantonese call "heong" but OSF one doesn't have the taste, it is just tasteless. The squid very hard to chew is like rubber how elderly and kids eat!? The prawns look like overnight for few days not fresh at all, the prawn head are quite black and the meat is not bouncy. The scallop not bouncy too but fried it save it. My family and I think it might be frozen seafood. The XXL crab so so not really fresh but still okay if compare to the roe crab they gave us.

2. The portion is very small for all dishes like portion of 2-3person, only the clam/lala and crab portion are bigger. If big family or many people not really suitable, but few friends ok.

3. The cheese crab served not hot and my dad actually told one of the lady who take order and she reply us "你们没趁热吃是吗" translate into English "you didnt eat while it is still hot" my dad took right after your staff place the plate! The way she reply really make us lose our appetite, the way she really really really make us quite speechless sound not so sincere. If it is not my dad birthday I think he will definitely scold him.

4. Limited area or table for everyone and all small tables. I heard my friends said you have to queue like hour to get yourself a table on weekends.

5. Reasonable price of RM15 for most of the seafood and other dishes. Yesterday damage cost us RM403 for 10 pax which is around RM40 per person so it is reasonable.

6. It will be our first time and also our last time dining there, as we can pay for the same price for better fresher seafood at other places.

7. They don't accept booking or reservation but they place post their contact on Facebook.

If you wanna get reasonable crab yes but not really fresh.
