An unpleasant Chinese seafood cuisine at a highly recommended seaside restaurant in Kuantan.

Came in, sat down, waited 4 minutes for the menu. After making up our minds, waited 11 minutes to get the waiter/waitress attention. There were only 2 tables, ours included at 7.45pm. I got up to approach the counter and was told that someone will come to get our order. No one came. The workers are more interested in chatting... More

Staff were disinterested and felt like taking diners for granted. Service was poor and borderline abrupt. Food was terrible and standards have dropped since last there. Felt like a tourist joint(trap??) Pricing vis a vis the portions was expensive. Stuffed crabs(one of the favourites) was bland and stuffing barely reached the top of its shell; RM7.50 each was robbery!! Will... More

The quality of the food can be better and the price is not as cheap as other reviewers claimed. Quite disappointed.

I had been this restaurant few times many years ago. We have our lunch here again by July 2015. The beach is just beside so the sea view is very beautiful. The food quality is ok. The price is reasonable. The staff service is good. The restaurant is big space and clean. The open space restaurant make us felt very... More

The place is not well managed anymore. No improvements and stagnant. Food wise has dropped tremendously. Used to have good stuffed crabs but not anymore. Fish is not that fresh. Most fishes in aquariums have skin infections. Only good part is that it has sea view.

This is a restaurant I usually visit during lunch due to it distance from Gebeng industrial area. In general it offers variety of seafoods and you can see many Muslim visit this restaurant as well although it does not have halal certification. It does not serve pork.

Went to Kuantan with my husband for a short trip, after much search we found out that pak Su is one of the highly recommended seafood restaurant here. Although the ambience was good however the food was below average and was not up to expectation.

We always come to Pak Su for a sumptuous seafood if we ever come to Kuantan. The white pepper crab in clay-pot is simply wonderful, thick gravy and spicy-pepper in nature. We also order the prawn in steam egg with sliced ginger on top. The prawns are fresh. However, the hot and sour crab is a letdown, very very very... More
