The Crab House in Patong, often imitated but never duplicated by those who omits the definite article “The” prior to the name, not only boasts the biggest crabs in Phuket, they cook and serve them in the most delicious and fun-filled ways.
The Crab House is situated on Phangmeung Road in Patong running parallel to both Beach and Rat-U-Thit Roads behind the Jungcelyon Shopping Center. If you walk along this wide boulevard, you don’t really need to worry about remembering the address, as The Crab House announces itself to all passersby through the presence of a HUGE ORANGE CRAB which rears up above its welcoming portals. You just can’t miss it!!
Walking into the friendly vibe of The Crab House you’ll immediately be impressed by the big bubbling tanks of fresh crustaceans arranged around the walls and on the floor. The helpful staff will make sure you have a cold beer, or a glass of wine from the cozy bar and then introduce you to some of the be-clawed denizens of this flamboyant eatery.
There are huge mud crabs that weigh in at up to two kilos, each with their fearsome-looking claws hand-tied with red restrainers. These come from a secret location outside Phuket and are absolutely the biggest crabs you will find anywhere on the island. There are also Blue and soft shell crabs, as well as local lobsters and maine lobsters, prawns and all the other key ingredients of lip-smackingly good seafood meals, but it’s the heavyweight mud crabs that are the stars of this superb culinary show.
The Crab House, also serves a full selection of delicious Thai dishes, rice, noodles, veggies etc which to complement the happy consumption of crabs. Plus there’s wine by the glass and bottle, cocktails and refreshing cold beers all at very reasonable prices to enhance the delights of crab crunching. So don’t be shy. Strap on your The Crab House bib and dive into the fun and flying crab claw and carapace as you savor the delights of Phuket’s absolutely CRAB-ulous Crab House. However, not to be mistaken with another restaurant called “Crab House”
