Time Out says

It's all about crabs at The Fat Crab!

The Fat Crab, situated on Marine Drive with beautiful views of the railway and the sea beyond, offers a one-of-a-kind dining experience to the guests.

The restaurant faces the ocean and the best time to dine at Fat Crab is in the evening, as the delicious food and the sunset create a fantastic moment. The seating is casually arranged on the deck, accommodating small to medium groups of diners. Colourful movie posters that hang on the wall add a retro feel and an informal touch to the cosy, laid-back ambience.

As the name would suggest, The Fat Crab specialises in dishes of crab, prepared in diverse styles and flavour. The extensive menu carries a plethora of seafood choices that includes appetizers, soup, a variety of pastas and the main courses. Their popular dishes include Black Pepper Crab, Lankan Murunga Leaf Crab Curry, as well as the Malaysian Fish Head Curry.

Furthermore, the Fat Crab serves Seafood Grill Platters, which are ideal to be shared between two or more guests, and come in three categories: ‘House Selection’, ‘Chef’s Choice’, and ‘Owner’s Personal’.

The Fat Crab’s informal and comfortable atmosphere is heightened by the open air space, which is relaxing and enables the diner to enjoy the gastronomical adventure, inspired by the Fat Crab motto, “No fuss – Make a Mess.”
