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.

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.

Stop here for lunch during a stopover in Kuantan. Ordered Stuffed Crab, Salt Baked Prawn, fish, fish ball soup and verges. Food wise is average. Prawn at RM 16 each is pricy! Next time will try the restaurant two doors away, Restoran Malaysia, which was told that they are better.

We had stuffed crab, steamed fish and mixed vegetables. The crab was moist and light and the fish really tender. I'll definitely be back the next time we're nearby. Service was quick and attentive. Only thing that could improve it - a cold beer.

Ordered one stuffed crab since haven't had one for awhile. Luckily only ordered one, not great. The baked cheese tiger prawns was delicious. As was the fried rice. Baby kailan was okay. Always a busy place though I had no trouble getting the waiter attention. On the pricier side.
