“Cheap tasty seafood”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 23, 2014

Relatively cheap seafood but pretty tasty! The prawns were cooked perfectly and the chicken satay was pretty good! Beer was cold and cheap and service was pretty quick. We over ordered and couldnt finish everything, but really enjoyed our food. Great place to go for nice seafood, not a romantic restaurant as lots of big noisy groups, perfect at lunchtime as less busy. Worth a visit for some seafood!

“not bad at all...”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 21, 2014

of all the seafood outlets on pantai cenang, the family decided to eat here. not once but twice in a row for dinner. staffs were efficient and friendly. seafood was fresh and they never ran out of them, unlike telaga seafood restaurant down the road ( what a lousy experience ). people had to queue to dine here in orkid ria, so that's a good sign. the prices are definitely on the higher side.

“Great fresh seafood”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 21, 2014

Pantai Cenang has lots of restaurants along its busy shopping strip, but we were surprised to see many pretty empty at 8pm on a Friday night. This place was close to our resort, big and busy, so we walked in off the street to check it out. As soon as we saw their seafood display with rows of fresh fish and perfect (HUGE) tiger prawns we felt like it was a good bet, and it turned out to be a great meal.

We ordered small serves of soft shell crab, Indonesian duck, clay pot scallops, and tiger prawns with ginger and spring onion with steamed rice. Note the tiger prawn dishes were in their own section towards the back of the menu - and we were asked to go and choose our prawns from the display as they are sold by weight. We got just one big prawn each and they were delicious.

I agree the prices were probably higher than some other Asian eateries in the same strip, but I thought it was fair for the quality of the meals, and there are many more expensive restaurants in the various resorts. Our dinner for three hungry eaters with a couple of beers each, was around $US60.

“Not for Malaysians”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed April 12, 2014

Orkid Ria, very mahal betul (Very Expensive), Memang Sedap tapi tempat lain pun sedap.

If you have money to spend go Orkid Ria Seafood and I mean if you are really willing to spend

But, I'm a local Malaysian and I've eaten in Kuala Selangor, Port Klang, Kota Kinabalu and these place are what we call cheap heck I even ate in Brunei and after converting back to Ringgit Malaysia is still cheaper.

So my advice if you want to eat at Orkid Ria please do not pay attention to your wallet.

“Great little restaurant with a great range.”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 7, 2014

Our first night in Langkawi so we went for a walk and stumbled across this restaurant. Had their Dim Sum as a starter, which was excellent, main was rice with thai style duck, which was also excellent. Will definitely return as their menu is vast with plenty of variety and great staff. The beer could be colder would be our only complaint, but don't let this put you off coming here.
