“Fresh”
Reviewed 12 July 2013

Saw this place on the way back to the Shangri-La and decided to try it out last night. Menu was in english and had a large variety of seafood choices although when we were there not all choices were available. We had the flower prawns, soft shell crab in salt and pepper, garlic rice and asian greens. They had a large variety of fruit juices available and also sold fresh coconuts which were great for 5RM. After dinner we were given free fresh fruit which was a great bonus. All in all we payed 100RM for four large serves of food, two beers, a diet coke and a whole coconut. We were the only western table there as the place was filled with Chinese tourists. Service was ok, we were left to wait a little to order but the food defiantly made up for this. There was also a cutlural show taking place on a small stage. They went around to tables offering us to have a go at some dancing so that too was a bonus. If you are looking for some good seafood give this place a go!

“stunning fresh fish/seafood”
Reviewed 28 May 2013

Volumes of fish and seafood well presented and tasty. OK it was the most expensive dish on the menu but well worth the price and staff members were attentive. Lobster was to die for and the amount of protein helped the 'calorie counting' without feeing too full? Pleased to be staying only 5 nights! Excellent fare to be recommended.

“Wouldn't recommend”
Reviewed 19 April 2013

Seafood overcooked, prawns actually cooked in the shell in a sauce. Try taking the shell off these while covered in the sticky sauce! Unable to eat in the end just gave up. Asked for a glass of red wine, only had by the bottle. Very helpful though in trying to find an Australian Merlot, but nearly choked when told it was $120 a bottle!
On the plus side we were offered a lift back to the hotel, couldn't fault the service just the food.

“Great value, large portions.”
Reviewed 19 March 2013

Ate here a couple of times and food excellent, very well presented/ornate and small size portion were big enough to share for two. Nightly local dancing amusing to watch, only minus, mozzies are quite prevalent along this stretch of beach.
