“Worst Seafood”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed May 26, 2013

I am quite surprised to see such high ratings for this restaurant - the first time that Tripadvisor has let me down. On my trip to Asia, I literally had seafood everyday so I was so letdown by the food in this establishment. Every single dish was horrible and unslightly. They didn't even try to make our buttered shrimp look good. It was old shrimp, cooked in a pan, sitting in heaps of butter. To add on to it, it was ridiculously expensive.

“An average seafood restaurant but expensive”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed May 25, 2013

The seafood showed at the Savoey Seafood Restaurant were very attracive and there was one thing good that price was dsiplay on each kind of seafood. Though most fo the seafood were not alive , they were very fresh. Three of us order garlic tiger prawns, steamed grouper, chilly sauce clams and fried morning glory. The seafood were over-cooked and were not good at all and was quite expensive. The place was quite dirty and the waiters/staff were generally impolite. We stayed five nights in Patong and had never returned to this reataurant.

“Nice Atmosphere and smiling staff”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed May 23, 2013

Quite an expensive place. The butter garlic lobster ordered was not cooked well nor was there enough butter garlic on it.

The Mai Tai's were average but the Sabeh Sabeh was good.

“Absolutely magnificent seafood!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 8, 2013

Cheap (compared to Western world) and just brilliant. Friendly and attentive staff and a great selection on the menu. I suggest trying the lobster and the prawns!

“it is over priced and the taste is just so so....”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed May 8, 2013

We (two pax) have spend around 150-200 usd dollars (200Singapore dollars ) for dinner. The lobster was just so so and pretty expensive. For that price, I think I can get it from any SG restaurant, but better cooked.....
