It took 1 hour and 15 minutes to get my food, which was also the wrong order 2 times in a row. After that it was served correct, asked for a discount for 10% which we got after some hassle. Definately skip this place if you don't want to be dining for hours on end!

Try and look around for another place, this one has plain food and the dishes are expensive. I won't eat here again.

The crab was tasteless and dry, the shrimps tasteless too, the squid tasted like plastic and had an analogous consistency. The grilled seabass and barracuda were good, but without any seasoning. They also wrote in the bill 350 baht for a dish marked in the menu as costing 90 baht. Luckily we realized that before paying.

We had a great meal this evening, I had the mixed seafood and the wife had a steak, quite easily up there with some of the best, didn't try the Thai as it seemed more accustomed to a seafood restaurant as it kind of states in the name, but a great place to eat. Highly recommend for lovers of seafood... More

Me and my partner ordered our meals and drinks, and after half hour mine turned up and his didn't. After explaining to a couple of confused waiters about not yet receiving our whole order we continued to wait another 15 mins and people who had turned up ages after us were finishing up there meals. We decided to leave and... More

Me and 6 of my friends ate here this evening. We had such a laugh at the size of the menu and wondered how they would make all those options in a tasty manner but we were not disappointed. From pizza to Mexican to Thai, everything we ordered was good. Had to wait a little while and the food did... More

One of the worst restaurant experiences ever. First went in with 6 others. Got a table easily. Waited roughly 15 minutes for us to ask if we could order drinks. Waiters reply "No" then laughed and walked away. Had to ask to be told you help yourself out the fridge. Ordered our food. Waited an hour. Nothing came so we... More

We ate at the Lucky Crab as it was recommended by Lonely Planet. I'm sorry to say the Thai food is not that good, it's possible to find much better food. Likely the grilled seafood was ok but we didn't try it.

I came here with friends, but we all arrived at different times. At first it wasn't that bad to be waiting for food, since we were also waiting for each other. But after 1 hour only one of us had received her meal. She ordered two meals though, only one came. I received my food after 1,5 hour, but the... More
