The Fat Crab on Marine Drive is well known for their seafood.




On August 9th, 2019, I placed a takeout order at The Fat Crab in the morning for 6.30PM pickup and paid almost Rs. 30K with delivery fees for two giant Crabs (1KG+). The order was not ready till 7.30PM and received, only a partial order and some claws were missing from the crabs. Once contacted the manager, he was very apologetic and promised that he would make things right. Three days later, I am yet to receive even a single call or even a text message.
The Black Pepper Carb tasted like dipped in a ready-made Chinese brown sauce. The Over Cooked Sri Lankan Murunga leaf Curry crabs were quite dry, and meat has turned into fibers.
I would not recommend The Fat Carb and its poor customer service.

Heading from Kollupitiya, go south on Marine Drive. You'll pass the Bamba rail station and Majestic City (Station Road). It's the fourth street after that.
