“WoW!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 5, 2013

Not located within the touristy part of the island - take the road to Pantai Kok from Cenang beach, and look out for it after Kuala Teriang town.

The food is excellent! I never had a restaurant visit where even the greens are cooked so well - they were so yummy, there was no need to coax myself to eat my greens!

The captain is excellent when it comes to taking orders. When he learnt my wife had a gastric condition, he offered to cook the dishes to suit her condition - and these options weren't on the menu at all!

Prices are reasonable - crab + fish + soft shell crab + greens + 2 drinks, 1 coconut, and rice ... all for slightly over RM100!

We liked it so much we went back for a 2nd night!

While the décor will win no award, and the setting won't be considered romantic, if you're a foodie, you'll love this place!

“Truly great seafood restaurant”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 31, 2013

This ended amongst our top 3 restaurants after 2 weeks travelling across Malaysia.
Great value, fresh seafood with fantastic flavours. In a modest but charming place.
Please do not miss the opportunity to visit this restaurant if you happen to be in Langkawi.
And do not miss the tiger prawns!

“Best restaurant in Langkawi...”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 31, 2013 via mobile

When u go into a seafood restaurant typically they will expect u to order seafood. And if u don't the waiter will give u 1 kind of look. But this does NOT happened in Shin Mi village. Even though we just ordered simple foods, they service us w a smile. Foods was OK. Value for money. Do choose this restaurant when you visit langkawi next time.

“Fabulous!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 29, 2013 via mobile

We have visited Langkawi now 5 times, last year we came to this restaurant twice during our stay because their food was incredibly tasty, we were picked up from our resort and taken back, service was excellent and they were happy to help us in any way for our dinner.

We are back in Langkawi and on our first night here, we visit this restaurant again, still great food, service and all the other things that keep us coming back. If you want some local food, particularly seafood but not necessarily, you are going to be happy eating at this place!

“Awesome!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 22, 2013

The food was fantastic, the service was fast and efficient. The view was also breathtaking, it was facing the sea with lots of boats and even a mangrove nearby, we say many mud skippers emerging from the ground and hopping around.But no worries, they do not crawl into the restaurant. If you love seafood, I would definitely recommend this restaurant.
