We order the set dinner which consists of tofu with vegetables, fried boneless chicken, fried prawn, fried rice and soup. They taste good. But there should be improvement on the lighting. Kind of dim

I will say the best dish we've tried here is the salted egg yolk crab! We paid S$36 for 600g which is not really cheap but it was very tasty and fresh. Good that there are free shuttles from the hotels.

The Kelong Restaurant is a popular choice for those staying at the Nirwana Resort. It specializes in seafood and the quality of food is good. Service is relatively quick and nothing to complain about. There are set meals for both lunch and dinner.

The setting of the restaurant, as the name suggest, is kelong-style so it is obviously not air-conditioned. Best time to go would be near sun set when one can enjoy a meal as well as have one's eyes feast on the glorious sun disappearing down the horizon. Just pray for good weather! Also go early to secure your choice table and seats.

The Kelong Restaurant is tucked away at one corner of the Nirwana Resort and can be reached by the half-hourly internal shuttle bus. Reservations might be necessary for peak periods like weekends and public holidays, especially when there are tour groups.

food was delicious, cheap to singapore, obviously. we did not have a booking on a easter weekend, but the space was huge and they managed to get us a table. There were set menus but we opted for ala-carte. strongly recommend the crabs. we tried the crabs at oleh oleh, despite the food at kelong being more expensive, the crabs and fish was definitely more fresh.
