Reviewed 18 January 2014

My partner and I ordered 6 different plates-3 came wrong!People working there have no idea of serving.We watched other tables where people bitterly complained.In the end the bill was also wrong.There are really much better places to eat.

“Worst chinese seafood!!”
Reviewed 27 December 2013 via mobile

My family and I decided to give this restaurant a try as it seemed a genuine chinese restaurant. Food was serves pretty quickly, which was good as we were starving after a long day at Cenang Beach. But when we had our first bite, the food tasted salty and very artificial. The only thing that tasted genuine was the chinese tea. Nothing else tasted good and we were terribly disappointed. It was a good thing we didn't go for the crab otherwise that would have cost us a bomb for a miserable dinner! This will definitely be one place we will never ever be coming back for any meal!

“Simple restaurant, value for money, but requires some attention”
Reviewed 27 December 2013

The restaurant serves Chinese-Thai food. Try the Thai style duck. Choosing seafood priced by 100 gram it is recommended to see and weight the "catch" before it is served ;-)
Staff needs some improvement especially when it concerns the timing of serving the food. Nevertheless the food tasty and affordable!

“Went twice. Value for money”
Reviewed 19 December 2013

Wanted to try Orkid Ria which is located opposite but it was much more expensive. Settled for Palm View. Very simple restaurant, reasonable priced. Enjoy our food

“Quality does not justify price”
Reviewed 10 December 2013

Read thru some reviews and realized that this place has no consistency.There were good and bad experiences. Well, my experience with them was horrible. Took us forever to get their attention. And when the second dish arrived, our Chinese tea hasn't. How hard is it to dunk in some tea leaves into hot water??? The food came really really slowwww. We finished our rice and majority of the dishes have not arrived. Some of the staff were pretty rude to us. Yes we understand you have lots to do but no need for rudeness.

Food was ok nothing great and the servings were rather small. The highlight of the evening was the BILL. There were 8 of us so we roughly estimated the price. Seeing that it was a seafood restaurant with fresh seafood, we ordered fish and the portion was enough for two people.And that tiny little anchovy came up to a whooping RM 80! We have eaten in various seafood restaurants and RM 80 usually can be shared by 5 people. But it is really to expensive and the quality of the food does not justify their prices. Understand that it is a tourisy spot but why the cut throat prices? Locals dine there too. Well not all our food and drinks came but it was still stated in our bill and again we had to wave our hands till our arms hurt to get someones attention.

Sigh. Well i know im never going back there again. It looked very promising form the outside.
