The shrimps were my favorite. And the sauce was just perfect. The crab was a bit small, and the wait was way too long. After waiting an hour, my friend decided on take-out the second time around. Take-outs were not as fresh. Otherwise the food was good.

I was a little disappointed because they ran out of craw-fish as soon as we got there. we drove all the way there for a birthday and they ran out of what we were craving.

I like this place because it isn't fancy. They specialize in seafood and have a few appetizers and extras here and there. They have crabs, oysters, shrimp, crawfish, etc. I went here yesterday and had a pound of seasoned shrimp for 8.99. Pretty good deal if you ask my. They make everything fresh and they serve it nice and hot. What's different about this place is that they don't usually hand out plates. They cover your table with wax paper provide a "bib" for you and you just eat away. Very delicious. Now I know what all the hype has been about.

This place is a great casual seafood restaurant to go with your seafood loving friends. Wait was extremely long though, so you'll be better off coming early for dinner.

Don't wear anything fancy because it gets really messy when eating, even with the bib (you're given a mallet to break any shells). The atmosphere is a casual, almost baja type feel.

Ordering is done by the pound (or fraction). We ordered raw oysters (delicious), shrimp (all shell on with their heads attached so if you hate eating shell you'll be really annoyed), crab (i don't remember what kind but it came whole), king crab legs (those were pre-cut so no need for the mallets), fried catfish (first time eating this but tasted good overall for what I expected from fried fish), and sweet potato fries (also good). The seasoning on the shellfish ranges from mild to spicy and has an Asian/Baja type spicy flare to it.

Since the atmosphere is casual, don't expect stellar service but getting simple things like drink refills turned out to be frustrating and I ended up needing to go up to the register to get the check.

Definitely not a place to take someone to impress but it's good seafood at a reasonable price.

Nhu Y Restaurant is very amazing. It has a place inside the restaurant that is reserved for VIPs. In there, you get to listen to professional singers and song writers. My family loved it.

I rarely give 5 stars, but I think this place deserves it! I went to the boiling crab in Alhambra their 4th location in L.A. The food was good, the sauces especially the cajun were fantastic! The service was awesome and best of all they have a beer license. I used to have to drive ot to the beaches to get this good of a seafood, but now I no longer have to. Two thumbs up!!
