“First beach cafe, affordable food center”
Reviewed 16 July 2013

This place has good things and not so good things.The good thing is , its near the Tanjung Aru public beach, just in front of the cafe , can swim or play on the beach and ,from a distance , saw people do wind surfing and kayaking.Nice to sit down by the stairs and feel the sea breeze.The not so good things are , foods are slightly overpriced , for its quality, the sea food is not so fresh compared to other restaurants.But can try the barbequed satays, chicken wings or beef..mouth watering

“Disappointed”
Reviewed 4 June 2013

We stopped off here at the Shangri-La First Beach Cafe for lunch before going to the airport. The hotel grounds is going through a major facelift, and the drilling noise very loud. Food wise the bread was rock hard stale, and the sausages tasteless. Very disappointing experience - should have gone to MacDonalds this time!

“Yummy food”
Reviewed 9 April 2013

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!
