Seriously, so so food...

We were so excited when we visited the place like years back, and when the food was served, we were kind of disappointed. Surely, the stuffed crab is special, but nothing to shout about, seriously!

We decided to revisit this restaurant after many years. The quality of the dishes is very ordinary. The speciality "Stuffed Crabs" were decent in price but the quality is a real disappointment - crabmeat was soggy and didn't seem fresh at all. Grilled prawns were priced way too high. Will not be visiting this restaurant again.

Was there again with a friend and wife. Decided to skip fish as its going to be pricey and sometimes its not fresh. Chose fried cuttlefish, chicken in tomato sauce, stuffed crab (a must), one mix vege, one fishball soup. All the dishes came out good except for the fishball. A little bit tasteless. Mix vege was ok but the... More

If you love crabs and too lazy to peel, try their stuffed crabs. One of the better one we had. RM9 each stuffed crab. You can even pack home. Gently steam to warm it up to maintain the juiciness

The Stuff crab (RM9/per piece) is average taste, But the BBQ prawns is good (RM78/5 big tiger prawn - about 7 inch each i think). It is in Kemaman, not kuantan, around 30 km from Cherating. The Venison is good but very expensive, try not to order that.. overall it is ok but a bit pricey to me. P/s a... More

I will suggest you to visit the restaurant if you having vacation at Cherating, because the nice dish is just about 20 km away! Restoran Tong Juan is located on the main trunk road, Jalan Suleiman in Kemaman. If you are heading north, it is on the left hand side. Opposite as mentioned, is a large car park and the... More

Love their bbq prawns and stuff crab. It was during the raya festivals that we were there, so there was not much choices to choose from as there were not enough delivery of fresh produce and seafood. But whatever there is it was good.

Must-try dishes are the stuffed crabs, foo yong fried egg and fried rice. Their tom yum soup is fiery hot, so you need to be careful not to drink in one gulp.
