“Awesome seafood”
Reviewed 5 August 2014

If you don't mind eating at a plastic table and sitting on a plastic chair then this is an awesome restaurant for local seafare from Kuantan (fishing village at the east coast of Malaysia.

True it is not the cheapest seafood restaurant in town, but it has some of the freshes dishes around as fish and other cretaeous are kept alive untill minutes before ending up on your plate.

The crab was amazing and super delicious, as was the steamed fish.
Must try dish is their deep fried tofu with vinegar.... Really delicious.

The restaurant looks a bit messy, but the food is really awesome.

“Tasty Seafood”
Reviewed 20 July 2014

The Sri Mahkota Seafood Restuarant is located in front of the Citiview Hotel, just off the main road before the junction to Teluk Chempedak and Tanjung Lumpur.

We were there for our dinner at about 7.00 pm, and there was not too many guest. Since this is a halal seafood restaurant, there were some Muslim guest having their dinner there as well. The restaurant is an open air type, with a small section air-conditioned. Numerous food photos with descriptions of the food is found on the walls of the restaurant.

We ordered our dishes for dinner - shark's skin fried with dry chilli, stir fry spinach and ginger onion chicken. Service was fast and good. The shark's skin was good and tasty, vegetable dish was well done and not over-cooked, while the ginger onion chicken was quite flavorful. The total bill for our dishes was less than RM 50.

Since there was only two of us, we could not try the other dishes, but I will be back for more.

“Nice food for reasonable price”
Reviewed 6 March 2014

I had dinner there three times during my stay in Kuantan, biggest reason was that it was close to my hotel.
I had tofu with red onions and vinager, fried lobster and some kind of fried fish. It all tasted good, espacially the lobster.
I also appreciated the fact that I could have beer to drink.
The service was good, I probably went there before "regular people" have their dinner, so the place was nearly empty at the time of my visits (around 6PM).

“A good find”
Reviewed 17 August 2013

Found this place by chance on our trip to Cherating. The price of the seafood is good and relatively cheap. The owner/chef was proud to tell us that he was one of the most featured chefs in Kuantan and his crabs are the cheapest around for the last 3 years! Do try the salted crabs. Service is prompt and fast. Halal restaurant that caters to everyone. Will definitely try out other dishes if we come by again.
