Overall it was a "reasonable" experience...

Pros:
1. It is by the seaside (on the beach)
2. Different ambience ( simple make shift shack and on the beach) :D
3. Somewhat friendly staff....
4. Reasonably prices...

Cons:
1. It is out of the way... towards the bottom most tip of Penang Island
2. It is somewhat dirty. (flies were everywhere....)
3. The beach was muddy and the water was blackish)
4. Only 1 fan for the entire restaurant (March is the hot season.....)
5. Food that tasted normal.
6. Super small crabs. (3.5 inches crabs...)


I would not go there again. It is too out of place...

Better off having seafood near town and then head to air itam for the assam laksa.

Dinner on 5-Feb-14 with friends from KL. We ordered curry stringray, fried kangkung, baked crabs, famous deep fried tofu and marmite chicken. Their curry is so good we had to order more rice, tofu is delicious we can eat it on it's own without the chilli sauce & the crabs are fresh and sweet. We also ordered the satay which we can order from the nearby stall which is good as well. For desert, we had fried ice-cream which my boys love so much.....You may order so many other dishes such as fresh huge oyster, prawns, mantis prawn, shellfish etc. Prices are very reasonable but advisable to call 04-6491403/ 017-4876275 / 010-3746869 for reservation. Come early to beat the dinner crowd and to catch sunset as it is right next to Teluk Kumbar beach.

Seafood offered are fresh and cooked in various style to suit different people. Signature must try dish is the herbal soup clam and crab in salted egg yolk. The satay next to the seafood stall is good.

I dislike that the served sharkskin soup. They should withdraw this disgusting dish. Please save the sharks.
