While we were on honeymoon we ate twice here and on both occasions the food was gorgeous. The meal that stands out though was the soft shell crab, the taste was amazing and have never tasted it like that before. If you get the chance eat here you will not be disappointed.

Suggest the duck. But watch out, one time it was delicious, the other time - hard and gluey. The service manager will take care of it for you.Ask for a mosquito candle to be placed under your table as between thge hours of 7 to 9 PM they can be a nuisance

Mr Ong was gregarious and welcoming and even brought Uncle Lim out from the kitchen at the end of our meal to chit chat with us. Food was good - wht's there to dislike?

Obviously a beautiful setting overlooking the straits within the fabulous private island of Pangkor laut. Excellent authentic dishes served by friendly and attentive staff - you will not be dissapointed.

It was given the illusion that we were up in the treet tops. beautiful views over the sea and twinkling. We ate there twice and each time we were advised on quantity and tastes and what wine or beer to choose that would compliment the food.

We had one of our dinners here. We ordered the vegetables cooked with scallops in XO sauce, steamed sea-bass and Tiger prawns. They were very fresh. Taste was also well-balanced. The location of the restaurant was quite unique. It was built on rocks by the beach and they kept the rock formation as part of the restaurant interior.

Uncle Lim's Kitchen is named under Uncle Lim-Pangkor Laut Resort's first employee on the island. He can still be seen occasionally at the back kitchen, supervising the eatery. I was told he still rows to Pangkor Main Island to get fresh supplies and to choose fresh sea products to bring back to the kitchen, which very much explains the scrumptiousness... More

The food was good. The ambiance and decor were wonderful, lots of beautiful wood, and as with all restaurants at Pangkor Laut, open to the outdoors. The service was great.
