We went there as the reviews are splendid, while we were not disappointed. The Ministry of crab experience is just teh way it is explained in the website and by the reviews. We were welcomed by the name we made a reservation by and were...explained how the ministry works. We choose the kilo crab for the two of us, while we started of with teh sixer of oysters. All in all a well thought of formula that works and impresses. A true recommendation.More

Restaurant's Favourite
Reviewed 3 January 2022

I love crab and came across this restaurant doing some research. It was the only restaurant I planned for my 3 weeks in Thailand this journey. The room was bright with windows along the entire front wall. Black and glass were accented with red and...saffron. Maybe 30 could be seated at once. I liked that the restaurant had no freezers. I was intrigued that they were flying crab into a country with plenty of its own crab. And everything was about sourcing, sustainability, freshness and quality. Simply put, I needed this crab. I tried to make reservations but couldn't. I tried calling the restaurant, but my call wouldn't go through. I called the concierge at the hotel for help. Minutes later I learned they were out of crab for the day. I made a crab reservation for the following day. In speaking with our hostess, we decided to start with an avocado crab salad, then 2 preparations of local prawn in 2 different sauces, this would be followed by a 2-pound crab in their signature black pepper sauce. I don't regret my order one bit, but for a second visit I would just get a larger crab and stay with the pepper sauce it was simply exceptional as well as totally unique. The crab avocado showcased the pure flavor of the crab, sweet and mellow as highlighted by the perfectly ripe and creamy avocado. Next was a large local prawn, one in butter sauce the other in chili garlic sauce. I preferred the chili garlic. You could still taste the prawn. The prawn was fried. with the exception of the shell around the top of the head and some of the legs, the entire thing was edible and delicious. The head is definitely where the action is. Then we moved to the centerpiece. Our crab came out tall and proud and dramatically resented gleaming in a black shiny sauce. Wow! The sauce was spicy, but not that spicy. the heat really only was evident at the very end and we were not sweating. It's unusual to have things focus on pepper as a flavor, and this was delicious. We sopped up every bit with our bread and could have stuffed ourselves even more but thankfully we ran out before we reached gluttony, or did it? I loved this crab. Easy to get at the meat including from the smaller legs. I used my cracker only twice on knuckles. The pepper sauce is crazy good. I had some incredible crab in Chile years ago, and while this is very different i would say it is equal to it. This was the first tropical crab that I think is that good. Just Yum!More

So I will not comment on taste, as I can’t eat crab (my partner and friend did), but one thing that bothered us all was the lack of options on the menu. On top of that, 290 baht for a chicken breast without sides is...just not reasonable. Everything was delicious, so please don’t be discouraged if you just want to go. It was just that none of us really enjoyed the experience for two reasons: lack of options and ratio of portion to price. Hopefully others will have had a better experience!More

As we saw a lot of reviews we wanted to go and try. Place is very nice and absolutely well designed, staff very friendly and professional. The food however did not meet our expectations, we tried both the crabs (XL) and the prawns (XL) plus...some other side dished. Don't get me wrong , I do not mean the food is bad but nothing exceptional and definitely overpriced. We had equivalent or tastier crabs and prawns at a lower prices. If you want to try go but do not expect the "miracle" the advertise in a lot of you tube reviews. Overall I would say 7 out of 10.More

The restaurant is in the Sukhumvit area, in Soi 31 and it look modern e chic. Staff is extremely nice..and also the owner welcomes the guests to their tables. We went there to celebrate my mum's birthday and everything was perfect. They even prepared a...dessert with a candle for her. We reserved the crab biryani and we can't even begin to say how good it was. Then we had a 1 kg crab with olive oil (they use actually real olive oil) and the coconut creme brulee that is exceptional. In conclusion we recommend this restaurant to anyone looking for a nice and casually elegant place where to have the freshest crabs and prawns you can find in Bangkok. Price is correct considering the size of portions and the quality of the products.. We'll come back!More
