“Great little place to eat”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed February 22, 2014 via mobile

We came here after we heard people mention it on a boat trip we were on so decided to come along. We certainly weren't disappointed. They have an eclectic menu with something for everyone. We tried the fried barracuda in pepper sauce and beef in black bean sauce; both delicious. Although there wasn't any choice, the wine they had was just fine. We'll be back!

“Superb food, service and ambiance”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 22, 2014

I decided to dine here with my wife, and both of us were happy that we did so. The place is nothing out of the ordinary but the warmth of the owner and the family it operates makes it amazing. The food is fine. Must try their Satay, fried squid, and fried fish in oyster sauce. Drinks are reasonable priced as well along with the food.

“Very disappointed”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed February 13, 2014

Ordered the cabonara, fried rice, egg onion omelette. In the menu the cabonara described with mushroom and bacon. But it came with only ham and without mushrooms moreover it cost me RM18!! The cabonara source with very strong milk powder smell which I felt a bit over. The fried rice fail too, we can still see many white rice stick together in the fried rice as they didn't fry it properly. Only dish we could finish was the egg onion omelette. Totally disappointed and waste money.

“Very friendly!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 12, 2014

I liked this place - the food was good, and cheap, as was the beer, and the staff friendly. Would go again for sure if I was back in Langkawi.

“Good Food, Great Owner”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 30, 2014

One of the only places we went to where the owner mingled with the customers and interacted with all, regardless from the country they came from. Fantastic Food! Must Try!
