“Big portions & affordable.”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 11 August 2014

The portions are reasonable. There's the 3 of us and we only get the smallest portion for every dish & couldn't finish it by ourselves.

“Excellent food and service”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 7 August 2014

Went there with some trepidation, given my avoidance of open-air dining and concerns about hygiene. However, I sat in the air conditioned part, given a menu and, at my request, went to view the seafood offerings and discussed the cooking possibilities.

I ordered 3 large oysters, steamed with garlic; 300 grams of prawns ( again steamed given my lack of interest in butter sauce), served with a tangy sauce; some spicy local vegetable and a bowl of rice. The girls kept up the tea supply and the meal was topped off with a complimentary plate of pineapple, pawpaw and melon.

The total cost of all this was RM 62.

A nice meal in clean surroundings.

“Seafood haven”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 29 July 2014 via mobile

Here you can find variety of fresh seafood from different stalls. However, this particular one - Twinsky is highly recommended for their reasonable prices and great services provided by a fleet of captains as well.

Seafood lovers do gear up for a great feast !!!!
