Definitely for shellfish lovers. Jan 25, 2012
We came here two days in a row after a friend's recommendation. It is the most brightly lit shop in the Tai Hang Area. It looked a bit like the entrance to the Tsukiji Fish Market.
As with most restaurants in the Tai Hang area, the tables are small and a bit crowded.
We booked before coming here and we didn't find any problems with it. The service was good on both occasions. One of the waiters is Japanese who could speak Cantonese. Everyone there was cheerful and helpful.
We ordered a set for two ( I copied the Chinese menu from another food commentator - "Si Fu". Hope he doesn't mind. The photos from his comment are comprehensive.):
1. 磯燒海大蜆 - Clam: Big and juicy;
2. 磯燒海榮螺 - Conch
3. 浜燒原隻生蠔 - Oyster
4. 浜燒活帶子 - Scallop
5. 浜燒粒貝串 - Tsubu gai (a smaller type of conch)
6. 浜燒魷魚咀串 - Squid
7. 浜燒葱吞拿魚串 - Grilled tuna;
8. 椎茸、南瓜、蕃薯 - Mushroom, Pumpkin and Sweet Potato
9. 浜燒日本香腸 - Japanese pork sausage
10. 炸八爪魚 - fried battered octopus;
11. 雜錦貝螺釜飯 ／ 清湯大蜆粥 - mixed shellfish steamed with rice or Clam congee
$576 for two.
Basically, all the seafood was excellent. The staff will grill everything on a stove in front of you.
I suggest choosing the rice instead of the congee. The rice was filled with seafood flavour while the congee was pretty bland.
A bottle of sake, 1.8 liters (!), cost around 400-500 (maybe less - can't really remember due to the sake).
There's a bright part of the restaurant and a dimmer part of the restaurant. I prefer the dimmer part as I find it a bit over illuminated. The ventilation could be improved as well. However, the food, the shellfish in particular, was really excellent. The price was reasonable too.
