Still Enjoyable

It was nice to see the restaurant still offered better dining ambience than most other restaurants at this end of Pantai Cenang. On both our visits two main courses, water and a bottle of wine cost about... read more

Great satay, fresh fish and veg but some of the other dishes weren't quite as good. Good service and nice atmosphere and nice clean toilets!

Nice well cooked meals and we went there for 3 evening meals (including Valentines Day) and lunch on the day we left.

As a non-smoker I think the restaurant could be improved by making one side of the central path non-smoking, if it... More

Food is good. Great tiger prawns and fish, but compared to all the other Chinese fish places quite overpriced. Scenery is nice though.
