This little gem was recommended to us by a local friend. Located off the beaten path somewhere in the suburbs, this restaurant serves up seriously delicious food. We had the steam hybrid grouper from their own farm, a plate of tiger prawns, giant grouper fillets in a clay-pot served with mushrooms and tofu followed with some organic okra with some winged beans. Honestly was a bit hesitant to come here after reading the earlier reviews especially with regards to the price, but you can really taste the quality of the produce used. Those wanting a cheap touristy meal should probably be looking elsewhere . I will def be back next time in KK.

Shocked at the bill for two people at this restaurant. The waiter was v. nice but the ‘chief’ was shouty and pushed food on us so we ended up getting one kilo of chicken in soy sauce for one person which was absolutely NOT what we either wanted or ordered. Feel seriously ripped off and shall not be going again. Chicken dish alone was 93 ringits!!!

It is a boutique restaurant with very limited parking spots. Vegetables and chicken meats served fresh from their own farms. Certain dishes are reasonable priced but some are pricier than expected, a plate of "kai lan" with oyster sauce costs RM13 + GST.

However, for a plate of RM13, they even served vegetables that are "old and tough" to eat. That's something we were not happy about.

Location is quite easy to find. By the road side at Kolombong Industrial Park, opposite Daily Express new office building.

The restaurant is air-conditioned and free wifi. They also sell fresh organic vegetables in store.

Having dined at alu alu on several occasions at the old jesselton point spot, I was quite surprised that they had moved the restaurant amidst the more sub urban area of Kolombong. The new place is very spacious and the array of seafood offered is certainly more vast. Enjoyed the usual signatures like the prawns and the fish but also enjoyed the vegetables this time around which also included organic tomatoes cooked with their organic farm eggs, winged beans, and different types of melons. The food as usual was on point but what really stands out is how many new organic items are on the menu. As a final note, I doubt there are many places in Malaysia which serve live Rabbit Fish in a chicken based bah Kut Teh soup. Most Excellent !
