Review

Tucked away down a lesser-traversed Wan Chai street, this stylishly appointed restaurant is dedicated to crabs. Two tanks of Taraba, Horsehair and Matsuba crabs greet diners, and it is these crustaceans, flown in fresh from Japan three times a week, that grace the tables later. Set menus dominate with a mixed crab set, uni and crab set, or Taraba-focused set on offer, each including crab prepared as sashimi, tempura, shabu shabu, congee and more. It is the quality of the sweet and juicy Taraba crabs and the more distinctly flavoured Horsehair crabs that shines—while generous toppings of rich, buttery sea urchin as part of the uni and crab set go down a treat, too. The service deserves recognition—not a moment goes by without a fresh plate, a hot towel or a tea and sake top-up. For a satiating and superior crab dinner, this is high on our list.
