“Enjoyed it twice!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 28, 2012

We thoroughly enjoyed our dinner there, so much that we came back the next evening again. The place itself is an experience with all the tanks (aquariums) full of seafood and dozens of tables of all sizes, visitors from around the world. Food was very good both the seafood and the veggies. All of it was cooked to perfection, fish steamed just right, veggies fresh & tasty and still very crunchy, great hot & sour soup. Service was friendly and efficient. The only downside is always that all food comes at once so you have to eat fast or end up eating some of the food half cold. Or remember early enough to order in two batches ;-)

4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 18, 2012

Every dish we ordered was good and the prices were okay ( better and cheaper than Port View Seafood Restaurant). The staff was very friendly as well. I would go back again.

“Excellent”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 17, 2012

Saw this restaurant in trip advisor so we gave it a go. Pick your dinner and then choose how you want it cooked, and hey presto. The restaurant looks chaotic but the foot came quickly and was piping hot. Very cheap too. Would recommend to anyone wanting fresh fish.

“Fantastic seafood at great prices”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 15, 2012

This is a great eating experience if you like seafood! We visited a couple of times on our trip in KK and were not disappointed. It can get very busy and the staff can seem a bit pushy with getting you to sit down and order rather than wander round and select your fish- don't feel you can't spend time, everyone else (including the locals) seem to be walking round and taking photos!

The tom yum seafood soup is fantastic (spicy, hot and zesty!) and at RM15 is great value for money and would serve two as a starter. We actually ate the frozen lobster the second time we went for RM50 steamed in a spicy black pepper sauce and this was brilliant!
