This restaurant offers nice and affordable seafood. All the food are nice and yummy. I love the crab (kam hiong style) and the tofu with minced pork and salted fish. They are really really good. When you are there, you will be amazed by all the mouth watering food. If you are visiting Kuantan, you have to try the food... More

All 7 of us arrived at 7pm and it was packed. Got a table and promptly ordered 6 dishes of 2 vege, fish, mantis prawn, yam nest, and pork ribs. Food arrived 45 minutes later. We devoured it in 20 minutes. Food was good. Service is prompt. The bill comes to around RM110. Worth going again!

Quite easy to find if you are coming from Kuantan using Jalan Beserah (on your right) or from Cherating down (on your left). Get there early because the crowd can be overwhelming to the extent customers are "queued/assigned" your table while you are still eating! Did not try their famous beggar's chicken as kiddies don't quite like the herbs. Had... More

Wrong address. Just drive down along jalan kubang buaya until you reach jalan alor akar. After 5minutes you will reach at a trafic light. This restaurant is beside the traffic light

Went to this corner shop for dinner on a Monday night about 8,00 pm and by that time it was already almost filled to the brim with diners. Coincidentally,it was also the first day of the one-week school holidays and as in any typical Chinese food shop, the din was unbearable. In order to avoid the big dinner crowd, it... More

Waited for very long and family began to feel impatient after waiting for more than 40mins. Luckily all dishes were served on table together and it was delicious and cheap! Worth eating.

The signature prawn dish and beggar chicken are a must have. Will go back each time I visit Kuantan. Try to avoid peak dinner hours or it will take at least 40 mins to have your food.
