“The Best "Kam Heong" Crab Ever”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 20, 2013

"Kam Heong" is referring to a Chinese cooking where chillies, curry powder, curry leaves, shallots onion and dried shrimp, wok-fried with crab, prawn or even chicken. Being a regular at New Luyang Restaurant, I personally rated them as the best ever "Kam Heong" crab after years of gastronomy experience around Malaysia. If you are looking for a classy type of seafood restaurant with air-cond and lot's of live seafood display, sorry, this is not your choice. New Luyang Restaurant is our neighbourhood's restaurant where its patron are locales looking for a place to dine in with family and friends. It's all warm, cheap and nice little restaurant in KK.
Recommended: Kam Heong Crab, Fried Pork Leg, Black Pepper Lamb, Restaurant Luyang's Signature Tofu

“Highly recommended to seafood lovers”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed February 7, 2012

It's in the suburb of Kota Kinabalu, about 3.6KM away from the city centre. Food is superb, prices are superbly CHEAP. We ordered Kam heong crab, wok fried sabah veggie (must try) and steamed prawns with egg, and the meal costs us RM 48!

The restaurant is famous among the locals If you happen to be in Kota Kinabalu, come and try it..Go there before 7pm or you may need to wait awhile for tables.

If you are coming from the city, drive along Jalan Kolam, it's on the left side of the road before ESSO petrol station. Highly recommended to seafood lovers.
Bon appetit !
