Lots and lots of foods. Its a bit crowded sometimes but that what makes it lively. Good food, just beside the beach. Try on the satay and chicken wings!

Walked along the beach from the Shangri-La on our first night. Had some lovely satay and a curry. Nice food at a good price. Would def recommend it here

Stayed at the Shangri-la tanjung aru and went for a walk one night and came across this restaurant. It looks like a big food hall and has tanks of all sorts of seafood which you can choose to be cooked up. It was quite late when we got there but there were still a few tables of people who were from the same hotel. We weren't particularly hungry and our waitress suggested a couple of dishes - one of these was a half kilo of buttered prawns. These were yummy. Had a very enjoyable meal with a couple of beers. Service was excellent as was the price and food. Well worth a visit.

With the beach at your feet, this is one of the best places to watch the sun go down in Kota Kinabalu! But with the quality of service and average food, I can't give this place a high rating The waiters can be a bit aloof, so it's hard to get their attention and they're likely to get your orders mixed up. And check your bill when you get it. The food isn't too bad, unfortunately it does arrive cold sometimes (or dry and overcooked from being reheated). Some dishes like the chicken curry is really delicious though. The only reason I keep going back is the location; as once you have your margarita in hand and the sunset in the horizon, the First Beach Cafe isn't a bad place to be.
