A Filipino family on a trip here were stunned speechless when they were hit with a bill for $1,186.20. Just the crab alone cost them $707.

The family said they were not aware that it was an Alaskan crab rather than the more affordable mud crab.

Their meal on April 26 at Forum Seafood Village Restaurant at Boat Quay also included prawns, a fish and a plate of vegetables.

Mr Santiago Caaway, 54, said the total bill was more than what the family of four paid for their flight here and back.

The restaurant had been in the news previously after tourists accused it of over-charging.

But Forum Seafood spokesman Thomas Tham said the restaurant clearly states its prices and patrons know how much the dishes cost.
