This is second time i visited this restaurant. I found it was ordinary taste and the sambal was not that good. The area was not clean too. The price was OK. A bit regret to visit.

Basic restaurant popular by locals, simply interior. You can choise a fish and he was tasty, but not super. But .... in and around the toilets is it very dirty, and be carefull ... very slippery. A lot of the young crew of servers (!students!) who are without work because less custemers, amuse them very noicy behind and in front... More

The interior is basic and smokey, but very clean, the cooks are friendly and tolerant with idiot foreigners who want fish but don't know which one. The food is delicious, perfectly cooked, an absoute feast of flavours, textures and a variety of fish type. We loved it.

Pick your fish and they grill it there and then, add some veggies and rice and you have a great meal. They also had some delicious mango that I would definitely recommend for a post dinner sweetener.

the place is very simple but it's all about the food. Fresh and cheap fish you select when you enter the place, ask the style you want it cooked then it will come with a selection of sambal (cobe-cobe) rice and veggies if ordered. Great and generous portions, good, fast service. The meal was excellent all together.

In this restaurant you have to try the fish eggs on the menu. So also with grilled fish and 3 kinds of chili sauce that accompanies the pleasure of devouring grilled fish.

Fresh and very delicious taste of grill fishes. Not only fishes but also prawns and another seafood. It is traditional restaurant. Do not expect for a good service. Cheap, fresh and delicious.
