“First place to go for cheap seafood”
Reviewed 6 July 2014

there were plenty of stalls selling seafood at this Topspot Seafood Foodcourt but we chose this one instead. You are greeted with a good display of seafood and greens and the staffs will guide you through to the catch of the day and suggesting dishes for you to try. The price is also cheap as it was only RM155.00 for 7 dishes (sweet and sour deep fried fish, bidin in sambal belacan, cukur manis with egg, signature tofu, oyster omelette, sea cucumber soup, & kungpow squid). We also ordered sugarcane with lemon drink and mind you, it came in a Venti glass for RM3.00.

“Expectations exceeded”
Reviewed 26 June 2014

Fully endorse earlier recommendations; hard to believe dinner at a food court could taste this good. Mango fish - superb. Steamed crab - perfect. Garlic prawns - irresistible. Fast service. A meal for four plus drinks came to RM125.

“Great Meal in Minutes”
Reviewed 17 June 2014

One of our most memorable meals during our 3 weeks in Borneo. The prawns were delicious. We just went up to the counter and picked the vegetables and fish we wanted and let them prepare it. Service was very good but food was the main attraction.

“Best I've eaten in a long time”
Reviewed 2 June 2014 via mobile

Randomly chose this as top spot was recommended to us by a local. Had mango fish, kailan, salt and pepper prawns, and fried rice. Got a beer also. Everything was fantastic and so fresh but the mango fish has to be one of the tastiest things I have ever eaten. Cannot recommend highly enough. Bill was about 100ringgit with drinks. Fantastic.

“A must visit that will leave a memorable memory”
Reviewed 30 May 2014

We would have not known that this amazing seafood fish market existed if it had not been for reading about it in the lonely planet. Situated on top of an open air car park not far from the river look for a red lobster sign that is a little hidden in the day light that lights up in the evening. You can either walk from memory 5 flights of stairs or there is a lift which we caught after over eating at the end of the evening. There is a selection of out door cafés to chose from. Which can be confusing. We walked up and down them all a few times before we made a choice. All appear to be clean tidy and organised. With so much fresh seafood all shapes and sizes on display for you to choose to eat and be cooked in front of you. Top Spot also Appearing to be a favourite amongst the locals with a few scattered tourist that have got wind of it. The Chilli mud crab is very a must at ~ $10.00-$5.00 Australian. Clean,basic,low fat,fresh, with a touch of spice. Sensational mouth watering and delicious. The only nosies to be heard are the sound of happy, happy chatter no loud music and no hawkers begging. Highly recommend in fact a very much a must visit even if you chose not to eat there. The bonus is if you are staying along the river you can walk home along the river whilst walking of the most memorable seafood experience.
