“Mango shakes & Lemon Tea”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed December 18, 2013

I am a big fan of their mango shakes and fresh home made lemon tea.

Food otherwise was about average. But do order their "sabah veg" as its their local dish and is a must try.

“Very friendly service and good food, reasonable”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 19, 2013

We've tried their Mabul Special and Sipidan Special. Both very yummy and price was reasonable. The owner / manager was very friendly and cheerful. Wifi was very good, and if you are not getting a good connection elsewhere in Semporna, I'd definitely suggest you to visit Mabul Cafe.

“Dont go if you're super hungry or super in rush”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed October 18, 2013

While the food is okay, time waiting is not. You could wait for ages before your food is served. Not unless you're in hurry, find elsewhere to dine.

However, its curry fish head and juices are to die for. Location is fine too. Price wise, affordable i can say..

“Shark fin!”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed September 15, 2013 via mobile

I'll repeat what a previous reviewer wrote.. This place seems to serve shark fin soup, it's still on the menu!

It's a disgrace to serve that, don't support it!
