Visited Tioman in May 2014 and the owner of Swiss Cottage recommended this eatery.

The Chef with the tall hat was very friendly and helpful and the food was very decent. We ended up having 2 dinners there.

Very important tip. Ask and discuss every thing with the chef and agreed on the price before hand as the greedy and unfriendly lady mentioned in the earlier post (yup, she is still there) will hike up the price like mad ! The Chef agreed the prawn to be RM 7 each but she billed us RM 15 each. We picked a huge tuna fish and the chef recommend us to grill half and use the head to cook curry fish head. She want to charge RM 20 for the curry ! To be honest, the curry taste ok but for RM 20 we got the fish in curry sauce, no sigh of any vegetable or even a single curry leaf.

The prices of drinks and other food were all stated in the menu. For the drinkers, just go to the duty free shop 2 doors away to grab some booze and have a jolly happy hour. The is probably the only place in Malaysia where the beer (RM4-6) is cheaper than juice (RM 7)

We had our first and last night dinner there after sampling food in Juara, Mukut, Berjaya and all of us agreed that this is the best place for BBQ dinner if you are in Tekek.

Will take a photo of the receipts and upload it soon. Their contact number 013-7747791 Lokman / Kak Jie 013-7676803. If u want to have the lobster best to call ahead and reserve.

We have our dinner at Warong Syahirah on first night of arrival. I like particular all the BBQ seafood (Squids, Stingray fish, prawn), taste really good with the marinated sauce, and fresh seafood too. We order couple of other dishes like stir fry mixed vegetables, fried omelette, tomyam. All are good except for tomyam , bit too hot & sour for us.. I would say the price not very cheap, but reasonable with the quality of foods. We have total of 10 pax, all dishes added with rice, softdrinks/juices, total bill came around rm230++... Anyway, will dine here if we going to tekek, tioman again.

Went to Tioman twice, the first time we went we were very happy with the food n the price. For example 2 pcs of fat crab with chili gravy was rm17, coconut drinks rm4 was served by an uncle wearing a big white cheff hat.

Things chnaged during our last visit, as we were served by a greedy auntie. Dont go there if the auntie is there. She charged people extra expecially if you are a tourist. We asked for a small glass fruit juice and pried there as rm3.50. But she gave us a big glass( but we didnt know since everybody else is having the same glass we tought it is normal one) and she charge us rm7 for it.

The last time we came,( only 5 months apart) you can order anything from grilled to cooked dishes without any extra charges. But she charged us extra rm5 for every dishes cooked in the kitchen on top of the price of seafood.


Basically you need to pick which seafood ( they have it in a container on top of a table) and they will cooked it as the way you like. Most people go for grill or bbq.

My suggestion always asked for the price before hand. They auntie is not so friendly and sulk alot. Tottally different from the uncle who is friendly and do not charge extra.

I think thatnthe auntie will ruined the restaurant reputation... However the plus point is that their bbq fish with coconut sos is nice. ( the uncle told us it was rm12 but the greedy auntie charged us rm25 for it)
