Well prepared and varieties

The cooking was done according to our requirements. Taste delicious and portion was according to our package. The dessert has limited numbers and needs to increase the choices. The banana fritters is strongly recommended.

First of all the service was very, very perfect. After a week on Pangkor Laut Resort we learned the waiters to know. Since there are not alot of restaurants on Pangkor Laut Resort. It is very, very unrare that you are offed a desert, which isn't on the menu. This kind of service is out of the ordinary. And it... More

Uncle Lim's is perched on a rock overlooking the sea and offers the most amazing views which, combined with the delicious food and warm, welcoming service, makes for a wonderful evening. Highly recommended.

While this is not your typical restaurant that serve fancy food, Uncle Lim specializes in basic Malaysian-Chinese home cooked dishes that are made to perfection. Chef Mr. Lim has been cooking professionally for half a century tough to imagine if he has not mastered the skills of a hearty local Chinese Cuisine.

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.
