Huge servings and good location for sunset

We waited quite a while for the food to be served but it was worth it! The papadum was really good, and the serving was enormous!! We were struggling to finish our food but it was such a happy agony hahaha. The seats were outdoor so you can witness the sunset, but after it becomes dark, there are... read more

We visited two times over two days, and had a great time at this place. The food was good, especially the sate salad, and the beers were reasonably priced for an island. Best of all, they have free chairs for customers and they can hold your bag behind the counter if you want to do some water-sports in the charming... More

The staff is really friendly and tries to make your order the way you want it. Extras are possible. The garlic bread is completly sweet. I dont know what they use but that was definitly not what we wanted. My baracudafilet was just perfect. I loved, how the arranged it on the plate. The location is just at the beach,... More

Located on the Coral Beach on the west side of Pulau Pangkor. Great spot to watch the Sundown. During the day it one of the few places that provides free sun beds. Decent dishes and good presentation. Service is very good, rarely seen in Malaysia. The price/quality however is off balance, it's expensive.

As soon as we said we were vegetarian we were offered a choice of soup, dhal, samosas off the menu OR a fresh veggie curry.. The curry was soo fragrant and beautiful- the promised hybrid food of malaysia in a bowl filled with chillis, cinnamon, cloves, star anice.. Yummy...

We had the curry fish head and lamb curry. It is so tasty then those we had in Penang. While waiting for food, you can play and walk on the beach. As the table was set on the beach. You can enjoy the wind and view while having your dinner. Staff is very friendly and very aware on your needs.

Service is good & efficient. They offered free beach chairs in front of the cafe in day time & beautiful lights, candle light on table & nice acoustic music with sound of waves in background during night time. Location is great as it is on the beach. Food is so so & a bit over priced. One of the few... More

The food at this cafe, which has a great setting by the beach, is good. Very tasty satay, for example, and Malay dishes were well prepared and they also served the best western food I ate while travelling in South East Asia. But this comes at a price. Compared with almost anywhere else in Teluk Nipah, the food is between... More
