The best i tried in 10 days in Malaysia

Great food, great setup, great atmosphere. I didn't mind walking in the sand, it's part of the setup The prawns and fish were very tasty, the staff very helpful, we really enjoyed the 2 hours we spent in Jala, it was a true romantic evening.

Friendly staff. Original food but a limited choice. Glad to be there but just for a one time experience.

Such a romantic spot, eating very flavoursome food on the beach front, listening to the waves lap the shore and watching the lightning flash over the mountains.

We went three times - a finer dining establishment but it’s right off the beach with a soft sand floor (check your shoes at the reception!). Concept is fresh seafood counter where you specify the quantity and preparation of your seafood and they bring it. Wine list prices were reasonable.

Jala is one of the most unique restaurants within a resort we have been to. Instead of marbles, tiles for flooring, they use sand. I guess it makes sense since it's a restaurant within a beach resort. The food is also reasonably priced for its location. Take your pick from the fishes and other seafood on offer. The staff are...

I dined here as a part of my visit to this extremely charming resort! The atmosphere is very relaxed and down to earth, which I think suits the resort category, and it is not compromising on knowledge, quality or overall experience. Nice selection of dishes, well prepared, and friendly waiters.

Stunning restaurant set just off the beach with the tables and chairs set on sand. We specifically came for the fresh fish table, so approached the produce once the "fish expert" was free. He enthusiastically helped us pick out the red snapper (our 1st choice) & helped suggest accompanying sauces (Langkwai green chili + green curry) & cooking style (grilled),... More

Seated literally in the beach this restaurant offers a wide selection of fish dishes - both chosen fresh from the ice table and cooked to your taste, or conjured into a very accomplished and well balanced daily menu. Impressive cuisine in a stunning and very romantic setting. Service is on the slower and more relaxed side in keeping with the... More

We started our first night in Langkawi at the Jala, and had Red Snapper which was cooked to perfection. In fact their specialty is fish but its on the expensive side.
