Positive:
1. Lot of variety of seafood available

Negative:
1. Be careful while ordering as they always take a very big portion of seafood that you might not be able to finish it.

“Good for Party or Corporate Event.”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed December 11, 2012

To have a good impression of this restaurant, once just a small Kelong, you must come on weekday, in the afternoon. Feel the atmosphere of this now huge Kelong, with several function room, a stage for some performance at night. Sea breeze, blue sea far away (not water under the Kelong ) and if you lucky come at feeding time, you could sea the worker give bread to hordes of fish there. It's kind of attraction. At night nothing to see and weekend will be so so crowded. You will have to wait longer for food you order.

Long time ago I like their Steam Swimming Crab with Ginger, but as the chef come and go, so the taste of their food, but in general I give them average score.

I can understand some guest disappointment of restaurant service when they come on weekend or diner time. This biggest seafood resto in Batam now already become a favorite
place for company to held their event or individual party that involve more then 20 or 30 persons. It has many size function room separated from their huge hall dining area and the
Halal Certificate they had from Local Religious Authority ( MUI ) become an assurance for devoted Muslim guest.

Other value added are this seafood restaurant located in a complex of ( going to be ) resort,
with fully functional 4 star hotel near by and some beach activity.

The only downside is their location, not easy to explain to first time visitor to come by themselves. But for public transport like taxi definitely will know how to reach the place.

“Seafood!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed December 11, 2012

Personally, i think Golden Prawn as not bad at all.
For the price that you are paying to eat seafood, it is quite reasonable.

Somehow we didnt not experience any slow service.
Orders was promptly taken and soon enough food was served quite efficiently.

No menus given to us. Price is expensive and the food is average. Restaurant is dark and stuffy. They only on the lights and fans when requested.

“Service with 933”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed December 10, 2012

No doubt about the price on the seafood paid, however the service we had was terrible. Rice wasn't coming until we are halfway done and our fish was wrongly cooked and never came in the end. We finished all other dishes and the fish was no where to be seen.

Food taste was so so, wouldn't say it is really that fantastic but for the price paid, can't complain too much either.

Would consider trying another restaurant next time.
