Contact :
082 - 451 414

Operating Hours :
11.00am till 2.00pm / 6pm till 10.00pm.


Yeahhh Dr. Ketam Shell Out is now back at The Banquet Restaurant ! Woohoo... Now with upgraded formula to satisfied everyone in here. 

Last year, their Dr. Ketam is RM77.00 for 2-3 pax but now after giving them my opinions, they also served for 1 pax portion at RM38.00 and RM75.00 for 3 pax. Woww ! Even cheaper ahh ! Promo last until end of April lor..

All this is for 9 Pax.

As usual, you can choose to add on white rice, Fried Flower Bun, Salted Yolk 3 Vege, Fruity Chix Wings, Jumbo Sausage and Local Crabs at different prices as stated at their banner. To be honest, i personally loves their Fried Flower Bun, Salted Yolk 3 Vege & Fruity Chix Wings. These Side dishes are the BEST to eat together with the Shell Out Sauce.

Among these 3 different sauces : Nyonya Curry, Lemon Grass Chili & Asian's Carbonara, I personally like Asian's Carbonara since last time. If you like something Spicy then u have to try Nyonya Curry and Lemon Grass Chili. Seriously, all 3 sauces is thick and marvelous !

This portion is for 1 pax only - Carbonara Sauce.

Yeah... everything is good and what is the "NOT GOOD" ? My friends said the Crab is too small. Yeahh we already told the Boss and the boss will keep note on this. But for me, RM38.00 per pax for such portion, okay lah.. Nothing much to complaint lor...

* Pssstttt... If you whisper you are a Kuching Food Critics members to the Banquet staffs before making payment or during booking, you will get FREE UNLIMITED Cordial Drinks which supposingly is RM2.00 top-up per pax. Ahhh.. Ain't that good ? Save money again lor..
