Plastic chairs and tables but great food

The Orkid Ria has grown to be the best local restaurant on the Cenang Beach Strip and has resisted trying to imitate western restaurants. The seafood is live and on display at the front door where you get a warm greeting and then shown quickly to a table with a clean table cloth. Menus arrive and... read more

Table for 4...yes please. Ushered to a large table with comfy chairs. Don't expect 5 star decor and furniture, it's all part of the experience! Drinks, followed by amazing food dishes. Not one was a disappointment. Scallops, soft shell crab, baby squid, abalone, mussels, fresh veggies, rice....all cooked to perfection and delicious. The service was terrific and the staff very...

The place was full to the brim but the service was very quick and the food came quickly to our surprise. The butter lobster is to die for. They can also recommend their specialty.

Located in Cenang beach and easy located. Had a chance to eat during dinner and suggest to come early due to most of the time during peak hours is full or almost full. Food selection and beers are widely available. The staff was very efficient and attentive. Food taste was good and ambience is nice.

Let the queues outside this place be an indication of what you're going to be getting. The menu is extensive with some very good non-seafood dishes for the more squeamish amongst your party. Service is excellent and the atmosphere is friendly. Will definitely be back.

A very popular and reliable, tasty choice. We walked straight in as the restaurant was clear popular with Chinese tourists, and we were not disappointed! The fresh prawns, (lobsters, crabs and fish were available but not tried) were weighed out to our selection, and we had a lovely meal for 8 came to less than $20 per head including drinks.... More

The food here are too expensive. Though good service, it's too crowded and noisy. There's no place to park our car and we have to park it at a far place and walk there.

I'm from Singapore and we love our local style chilli crab so when we were served the dry stir fry chilli crab we were dissppointed. On top of that, they only had mud crabs. Not much meat and they don't sell crab with "egg". If you are like my friends and I, who loves crab meat and chilli crab with... More

We went there quite late like around 21:30 but still many ppl dine in. But I believe if went earlier the choice of fresh seafood maybe more. We have ordered a grilled fish, three (min order) tiger prawn, fried vegi and fired rice vermicelli. At first we wanna ordered a lobster but as we are only a group of two... More
