This will have to be the best seafood restaurant I have visited so far. We visited this restaurant 3 times in total and each time the food was cooked beautifully and the portions generous. The medium fried rice was enough for 4 and soooo delicious. The tiger prawns were the largest I have ever seen. With over 10 options on... More

This is probably the most popular restaurant in Pentai Cenang, so arrive early eve or expect to queue. We had fresh prawns and sea bass, which were cooked very well and tasted great. We arrived at about 8:30 and due to the queue they asked if we would share a larger table, we did and that made the evening more... More

This is a long-popular restaurant now known and widely marketed to tourists. The place was filled to overflowing with tourists. Our driver playfully questioned why we would choose Orkid Ria (reservations were organized for us by a friend in KL). It is large, noisy, busy and rushed, which did not make for a relaxing dinner .. far more crowded than... More

It's neither Chinese nor Malaysia. We could taste the meat has been in the freeze for a very long time. We had chilli prawns and ginger chicken, both could be the worst dishes I had ever. Fried rice is the stable of Malaysian cuisine and it was disappointing. I don't recommend this place, there are so many better choices on... More

If you are a fan of authentic Chinese food and dining then this is not to be missed. Freshest fish possible and enormous tiger prawns - keep an ear on the price though when choosing as the cost can rack up. They take credit card though so all good. Definitely recommend tiger grouper in soy and ginger and tiger prawns... More

If you're staying in the area and enjoy Chinese food you will not be disappointed. Definitely worth it. Highlights included tiger grouper in soy and ginger and mega king prawns in butter sauce. You are welcome to choose your fish etc (all live on arrival...not for the squeamish!) But be careful the price doesn't catch you out as it's not... More

Hello, We had visited this restaurant in january 2017. Got the reference of same from trip advisor itself. Our one visit was converted into frequent visits, most probably I would have visited minimum 5 times. The food quality is superb also the quantity. A medium portion of fried rice is more than enough for 2 pax. Cleanliness is up to... More

This restaurant is definitely value for what you pay. Do not expect fine dining but efficient service with the freshest seafood cooked to your specifications and served within a very reasonable time. Waitstaff are accommodating and the restaurant runs like a well oiled machine from the hostess right through to the chefs. Located in a great spot in the heart... More

This is our favourite restaurant in this area. Not one of the cheaper ones, but fabulous food, really fresh seafood and great staff. It's always busy with a queue often however the turnaround of tables is quick as there are so many so well worth the short wait. You can select your own shellfish from the tanks on display. Wine...

This is an extremely popular restaurant close to Casa del Mar in Pantai Cenang. Speciality is Chinese style seafood and all the dishes we tried (Prawns, Crab, soup etc) were excellent. Staff were efficient and friendly. Prices although very slightly higher than elsewhere were reasonable given the deliciousness and presentation of the food on offer. Highly recommended but either get... More
