We stayed in Cenang for 10 days and visit Putumayo about 3 times during our stay so that must say a lot about this restaurant! Good choice of menu. It was recommended that I had the king prawn on our 1st visit, and OMG it was delicious! The staff are very good, especially Awar who was very friendly and kept... More

Tried their signature bbq lobster. One of the worst i hv tried. meat is so tough that you might need some time to peel off the meat from the shell. Questioned the server, their reply was its supposedly to be in this manner and ensure me the lobster is fresh which i highly doubt so. Can always try the restaurant... More

We dined here last night, we had so many good restaurants to choose from! We had garlic prawns which were as big as a more ton bay bug, some noodles and a green vegetable they bring in from Thailand which was sensational. As with most Asian countries the beer is cheap and the wine expensive. I can truly say this... More

Location is good, food is poor. Old oil, for the fries. Service was nice and friendly. We had to go after that to another restaurant.

Dined here with three families on a large table. A wide variety of adult and children's meals were ordered. I ordered lemon chicken, mixed veg, boiled rice and scallops in X O sauce. The lemon chicken was possibly the best I have ever eaten. The scallop dish had just four scallops in it and was a small serving but tasted... More

We should have become wary when they advised us that they had no rice left ( ever heard of a chinese restaurant without rice?!? ) but we perservered and were very disappointed. All of the food was soy sauce oversalty with no other flavours, quality of meat was dubious ( especially perfectly square cubes of chicken ), cocktails undrinkable (... More
