The customer service of the staff was super bad. When we went there and told the staff that we need a 5 person table and had asked about 5 to 6 staff but nobody serve, only 1 of the staff willing to serve us. Their food is average, not much variety of the shell seafood. I dont recommend this seafood... More

Instead of sitting down and ask for menu, just head to the holding tank of seafood, and point to the food stuff (type, size, quantity) you want, and tell them how you want them cooked. You will get the best deal this way. Do it the way the local does.

And coming from singapore with a neighbouring malaysia that is rich in food varieties (which makes us spoilt for taste) So ordered a few dishes, honestly wasn't up to standards at all (maybe i compared...

We came here for lunch as part of a local tour package. The place was crowded with tourists. There was a local produce store and a shop selling birds' nests products in the same vicinity. Food was so-so. Probably not worth coming on your own.

Our local Batam relatives brought us here because of its Kelong-type setting (I guess) but we came away really disappinted. The shellfish, cilly crabs and even vegetable all seemed to be cooked in the same 1-dimensional spicy sauce! The steamed prawns were not the freshest and the place was packed with the cheap day tour groups. This is certainly not... More

Portions though plenty, is not fresh. Definitely not for the discerning. Factory style service and we got ignored a few times. Horrible ambience with loud (bad) music blaring while we ate. and the annoying bird's nest touts! we don't recommend at all.
