“Fresh seafood”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 15, 2013

The seafood is nice and so are the other dishes. We especially love the brinjal. Even those who been avoided brinjal will go for second helping

“Delicious seafood restaurant by the sea.”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed February 21, 2013

Used to go there regularly. Pro: Food is good especially the signature dish of claypot steamed grouper, lemon clamp, stewed pork, by the sea. Con: expensive, no price list, you only know the bill when you want to pay, poor decoration. look like a typical cheap chinese char chai stall, won't impress your guest at first look.

“Excellent Malay Food”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 4, 2013

We liked this place so much we came back for more and returned the following evening. The seafood is fresh and tasty and prices are not too bad at all. Would certainly recommend.

“Good seafood, service can be slow”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 26, 2013

This intimate little restaurant is cozy. The food on offer here was just excellent, it needed a little salt but that was easily fixable. Despite not being busy the service was slow. So if a number of people order fairly close together, those at the back of the queue could be waiting a while.

“wonderful and quality foods”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 22, 2012

For the past 30 years, I have been to thousands of restaurants and foods store locally and overseas. If you ask me which restaurant you like most ? My answer is, considering the tasty , quality,varieties of foods, also the environmental factor of the place (just beside the sea front with cool wind), I would strong recommend Hai Boey Restaurant to be your first choice of Dinning place.
