“Excellent seafood”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 26, 2014

The restaurant is in the Avani Sepang resort near KL. It is in a really nice location even with the resort—right on the beach.

This is primarily a seafood restaurant. The choices are quite good. The crab, a local one, was quite good. Other dishes were also good.

The chef is really nice (a young guy) who is more than willing to come and discuss preferences with customers. The service in general is also very good.

Overall, besides the excellent food, this is the only restaurant worth visiting in Avani Sepang.

“Not really a family restaurant”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed July 21, 2014

The dessert was delicious. Mains were less than satisfactory. 5 of us at the table and not one of us had the same things on the plate despite ordering the same meal. The rice was of a questionable temperature and I don't think there were many in the restaurant that night that ate it. Plates and plates of rice were just going back into the kitchen. You get eaten alive by mosquitos so cover up and wear lots of repellant.
