Tick the box..cool breezes, ocean view

If you're hot, tired and sweaty, then this low key, ocean side, open air restaurant will suit you. We relaxed with some beers, a ginger tea and mango juice, and enjoyed the industrial scenery: rigs, tenders etc from the oil/gas industry anchored in the bay. As evening approached, each vessel put on... read more

Better seafood in Kota Kinabalu, Sabah. Seafood was fresh but flavour was subdued. I've even tasted better in Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia.

Great crabs, but order day before for the big ones. There was plenty of other dishes to choose from and the vegetable dishes were excellent.

Generally food are tasty. However when partnered with slow services it does affect my appetite on the food. Reasonable prices. But less friendly staff. Located by the beach means food view at night, but do bear the sea smell in the evening :)

Its a bottle chilli sauce gravy and taste awful. For dinner we tried deep fried squid and butter prawn,both were good but unfortunately they give our... More

eating here without a reservation is pretty risky as people make a beeline to the place in the evenings. my first night was on a thursday and there was already a decent crowd there with most of the good tables taken. the crabs, though small was pretty good and the sizzling tofu was sumptuous. friday night was really packed with...

Located by the seaside, the atmosphere is there. Food is relatively fresh but taste could only be described as average. Nothing to really shout about. Service is good and people are friendly.

Quite a big place touching seafront & a bit away from downtown. Vey quick service & looks popular joint for big parties. Outdoor area can be windy at times. We ate variety of sea food & the price is a bit extensive but it is surely worth it.
