“A change from the hotel food”

Tanjung Aru Seafood Restaurant
Ranked #170 of 659 Restaurants in Kota Kinabalu
Restaurant details
Reviewed 30 March 2014

We went to the more informal restaurant rather then the one attached which had shows on. It is 15 mins walk from the Tanjung Aru Shangri-La Hotel. It is fairly basic food court type environment with good food. The rice was only lukewarm but all in all it made a change to get out of the hotel and try something different.

Our first time in this restaurant was good, but nothing to write home about. We went there again 2 weeks ago and where really disappointed. Service was not attentive, in spite of the numbers of waiters running around, and the one who served us had a lollipop in his mouth when he brought our food !!! The Tom Yam soup tasted like ketchup with chilli added - we sent it back. The serving of fish fillet with ginger and green onion was plenty, but overcooked and bland. The rest was just edible. We live here, but this restaurant will not see us again.

The restaurant wasn't my first choice, but we were hungry! When we got there, we were obviously the last in, and were treated as such - this made us feel uncomfortable throughout our meal. I have to say that the meal in itself was good quality and was obviously cooked fresh for us, but for me, this was over-ridden by the fact that they made us feel uncomfortable from the off-set. If this doesn't bother you, and you like seafood, then I'd say, give it a bash.

By the way, it doesn't serve alcohol, or they didn't serve it for us anyway.
