Nice Chinese restaurant

Very difficult to get a table, we had to book 2 days before. They celebrated Chinese new year, so that could be the answer! We ordered 5 dishes, and split between 7 persons, and that was food enough for all. Very nice dishes, and service was also above normal standard. Wine list ok, with fair... read more

Uncle Lim was the first employee on Pangkor Laut. Now in his 80's he still supervises all the cooking and circulates in the restaurant to check that all the diners are happy. Delicious, Chinese dishes will satisfy the foodie and those with a healthy appetite. Great atmosphere and a special attraction of the resort.

We enjoyed the excellent food. Should come early for dinner to see the view as restaurant is overlooking the sea. Need a reservation. However, the mosquitoes were annoying but the restaurant provides insect repellent.

Be sure to book a table at this restaurant early if you can as it's normally fully booked, especially the earlier slot at 7.30pm.

They required reservation and yet there was a lot of empty tables when we're told it was fully booked. Food and service were great! But the price is much higher than any place else in the country. A plate of fried broccoli with garlic cost RM80.

Uncle Lim's is a fantastic restaurant on Pangkor Laut Resort. The service is magnificent, the dishes we ordered (a chicken dish and also "sizzling beef" with fried rice were perfect. The venue overlooking the sea -well, how could THAT be improved upon? Just not possible. Like the resort itself, everything about the restaurant is 5*.

On holiday when you want to experience the food can sometimes be a huge disappointment which can spoil your time away. However when you find such a treasure such as Uncle Lim's you just don't want to eat anywhere else no matter how good the food was in the Fishermans Cove restaurant next door.

The ingredients were very fresh and a very friendly manager who recommended delicious choices and Uncle Lim himself comes out to meet his guest. Already looking forward to next visit
