“We were not impressed with the Nasi Lemak (coconut rice, chicken curry, slow poached egg) and the Dorade Penang (some kind of white fish).”
really dig the flavors. awesome time, loved the soundtrack. I felt like i was back in college (depeche mode?!). Food was great.
This place is awesome!. two words....CHILLI CRAB!!!!!
great find. Last night walking around the neighborhood stumbled upon this place that I recently read about. Seemed like a great place to hang out. Good music (little cheesy but fun). Me and my wife hung at the bar and had a great tequila drink while we waited for a table. Food was outstanding i think the duck was my favorite. service was different than at most restaurants but i thought the overall experience was pretty cool. I think this is a great place to hang in the neighborhood cant wait to get back.
had fun. had dinner at fatty crab over the holiday weekend overall just a really great experience. The menu was very similar to the other location but seemed like it had a few new things. the whole fish was off the chains! cant wait to get back maybe this time i'll remember more of the evening. cocktails rock
Wow!!. I had dinner there the other night and had the best time. The food is fantastic, the music is loud but that's why I like it and the staff is a lot of fun and could answer any question i had about the food. This place isn't for everyone, but if you want to have a fun time, eat great food, drink great booze than check it out!!!
bangin son!. I love this place!!! I am so happy that the UWS finally has a place to eat that is not just for the silver-haired set. The vibe at Fatty (as we now affectionately refer to it) is layed back with intensely knowledgeable staff, that can break down the ingredients of any dish you've ordered in a moments time. It's hard to believe, but the pork buns ARE actually better than momofuku. The rest of the menu is as well. I've never had a bad dish in three visits. Even the bokchoy is simple but genius. The chilli crab crab is a must!!!! it's pricey, but try picking up some dungeness crabs and cooking em for your foodie friends and pay just as much for half as good.! All in all, you can"t get this style of food at this quality anywhere in the city. Did I mention all the pork, and chicken come from sustainable, natural, local farms! I hope this place stays forever!!!... Straight bangin son!!!!
Its like a party in here! I heard one of the tables next to me ask the waiter to turn down the freakin music. Im sure he wanted something other than The Cold War Kids. But it was Friday nite at like 9:30!! WTF??
The food was crazy good tho! i got kinda drunk and think i had some pork buns (better then momofuku) and a crazy mango salad and the crab!! WOW...After i gave in and really started digging into the dish i truly got what was going on here...This street food is meant to be messy and flavorful and loud and all that!! Bring it on Fatty Crab!!
Hot spicy food, cool hip atmosphere. Good lord! the UWS needed some place like this! The food is spicy and unusual and the vibe is laid-back and rock and roll. FYI malaysian food is spicy and salty, that's what it is, so if you don't like salt and spice, this place is not for you. And if you are partial to cheesy "elevator music" with your dinner you wont find that here either. But if you want to try something completely different from everywhere else in the UWS, head on over to fatty crab and enjoy!
Editorial Review. The uptown sibling of Zak Pelaccio's West Village original offers the same Malaysian menu that made the first eatery a hit.
Even better than the original!!!! OUR FAVORITE SPOT IN NYC!!!!.
Being a local and a huge fan of Fatty Crab, last night we headed up north to try out Fatty Crab UWS....
Awesome space, great decor and the staff was great. We loved every second of it. Going back this weekend, this place is a MUST visit for any fan of Fatty Crab downtown.... CHEERS TO FATTY CRAB UWS you are here to stay!
