Golden Prawn

Been here a few times. Tasted the same food almost all the time Gong gong or conch seemed to be served all the time, even though it proved to be unpopular. Fish and chicken dishes are not really tasty, just ok. Fried calamari is good. Vegetable dishes need improvement. Coconuts are not sweet... read more

Overrated restaurant for a kelong experience. Been there a few times. First time was almost 20 yrs back. Standard has been dropping since then. Food was average. But was quite worried how the live seafood was caught and prepared. Fish was caught from the enclosure and left on the floor to die... The same floor where hundreds of them walk... More

Looks very ready to receive upmarket customers and we feel that it should also focus on moderate budget customers but the spread of fresh and live seafood is a sure attraction and a good place for food

Many varieties of fresh live seafood including seashells as well. There's quite few ways of cooking to our liking. It cost around S$56 for a fish, prawns, sotong, scallops, lala & vegetables. It's worth the price for live seafood.

Do not come to Batam during their Hari Raya Puasa holiday, as no much is open and no one is in the mood to work. Service is bad, and there are not enough drinks to go around. However, food is decent but not very cheap anyway. Should have give it a miss.

The place is not as convenience as I thought when I first heard the name "Golden Prawn" I went there during the weekdays for dinner so there were not so many people. The restaurant is very spacious and it has a live music performance. The seafood taste okay. So far based on my experience it is more suitable for business... More

Because we came with more than 40 guests, the food service was incredibly fast. We enjoy ourselves very much. Thank you, Golden Prawn 933. I love the prawns!

The food at Golden Prawn 933 Restaurant is nothing to shout about and so, if you are planning to dine there, save the trip and money for something else. Golden Prawn 933 Restaurant is way too touristy for our liking.

From Batam Center, one takes a cab or a private car to reach this restaurant in about twenty five minutes but may feel shorter if the cab driver will start telling you local stories about Batam and its attractions. Upon reaching the restaurant, a staff will show you to a series of small tiled ponds which shows off live and... More
