fresh seafood but once was enough

Fresh live seafood therefore expected to be expensive. Too busy and although the staffs tried their best, there are too many tables of client to be served. If order normal dishes other than seafood, its pretty small in portion. Worth a tired but will not be back again.

Ate here with my wife on our recent visit to Pantai Cenang, Langkawi. Good quality fresh seafood at reasonable prices, tiger prawns were very tasty. Busy dinner time especially during Chinese NY period where there were lines of people waiting to get in. We were walk ups and seated quickly. Food was served quickly and nice cold beers were available.... More

There's nothing to dislike here the food is so, so fresh and tasty, The staff efficient and friendly. The price of the fresh fish is unbelievably cheap. Despite the restaurant being full to capacity everything was served quickly and pipping hot. the deep fried Thai style snapper was delicious.

Pick your fish or lobster from either the ice tray or still swimming in the tanks and it's off to the kitchen. I'd say this is as good a Chinese meal as you could get anywhere and the service is really sharp. A decent selection of wine and beers with a reasonable price tag. One of Cenang Beach's must dos.

Seafood excellent and prawns to die for. Orkid Ria has wonderful busy atmosphere. It obviously is very popular with the locals as well as with tourists and expats. Although Chinese it caters for all tastes and does wonderful sizzling steak and chips and is very reasonably priced. Will be back next year.

The resturant is located in front the beach, you can enjoy a tastey dinner while having a nice beach view and feel the beach breeze. All the food was amazingly cooked and well presented. The only disadvantages are price is expensive & were not a lot of variety of fish types

Love it. Not just great, fresh seafood, but a good kitchen too. Some of the seafood places in Langkawi cater more to Arabs or have a Thai taste. This one is Chinese.

This is a very busy restaurant with plenty to choose from. You can pick any fish available (some live) and then pick how you would like it cooked. Service was surprisingly good and the food was great, we both loved it.

We visited with a group of friends, some had visited before. Wisely we booked a table, by 8pm the queue waiting to get in was at least 25 strong. Ordered the food, we had a mix bit local food and some Western for the kids in our group. Don't understand the remark by Richard from Czech, after ordering the food,... More
