Delicious food in an open air restaurant with a view of the sea and boulders. 81 year old Uncle Lim, the namesake and Chef of the restaurant comes out to greet all guests and share ancient Chinese wisdom on the need to be happy. We had the giant garlic butter prawns, fried softshell crabs, sizzling beef and claypot chicken and... More

Food was so Goooood!! No wonder the restaurant was packed, the hotel arranged for my appointment at 8.30pm because it is so crowded. But the wait was worth it because the crowd were slowly leaving by the time I got my table. I had Fuchow style red wine chicken, special style steam fish for dinner. Taste were fantastic and food...

A great selection of dishes, fast and friendly service. A pleasant walk from the resort to a unique location. Mid - priced dishes but could not fault the quality.

Uncle Lim's Kitchen is sited on a circular open building by the sea. The menu is extensive enough giving plenty of choice. The quality of the food is very high and service is excellent. Don't think that the restaurant title is a sham or franchise name! We met Uncle Lim who is a sprightly 81years old and still doing a... More

Location was good. As you get to dine overlooking the sea. Seafood is fresh and slightly pricy for me as I am a Malaysian Chinese which perhaps Chinese dish is normal for me. Too pricy for an omelette fuu yong egg which cost rm55. Service is good and ambience is good. Only opens for dinner. Casual dining. Reservation is required.
