This restaurant offers nice and affordable seafood. All the food are nice and yummy. I love the crab (kam hiong style) and the tofu with minced pork and salted fish. They are really really good. When you are there, you will be amazed by all the mouth watering food. If you are visiting Kuantan, you have to try the food here.

All 7 of us arrived at 7pm and it was packed. Got a table and promptly ordered 6 dishes of 2 vege, fish, mantis prawn, yam nest, and pork ribs. Food arrived 45 minutes later. We devoured it in 20 minutes. Food was good. Service is prompt. The bill comes to around RM110. Worth going again!

Quite easy to find if you are coming from Kuantan using Jalan Beserah (on your right) or from Cherating down (on your left). Get there early because the crowd can be overwhelming to the extent customers are "queued/assigned" your table while you are still eating! Did not try their famous beggar's chicken as kiddies don't quite like the herbs. Had the following:- Thai Style Steamed Tilapia (Excellent!), Yam pot with Kung Po Chicken (Excellent), Signature Beancurd with Minced Meat and Salted Fish (Salted Fish slightly overpowering while mince pork still quite big chunks) (Above average) King Pork RIbs (Average), Yau Mak (Average). They also have wheatgrass and home made Sugar Cane juice which is nice! Damage to the wallet for 5 dishes, 1 jumbo wheatgrass and 5 plates of rice can up to RM78.50 which is a steal by KL standards. Caution though, as some reviewers have brought up, mosquitoes abound so be prepared! No air-conditioning, noisy when full. What I did not like were people who came looking for tables later in the evening and acting like 'vultures' waiting to swoop unto your table even though only 2/3 way into dinner.
