The seafood place is located beside Kota Kinabalu’s day market. More than 10 stalls to choose from. I opted for the one I owned by a guy named Sam. Nadirasa Delight is the shop name.

You can find everything cheaper elsewhere. The food is very unhygienicly prepared, eat at your own risk!

It was fine. As a solo traveler, I was hoping for lots of stalls with small snacks, but it's mostly sit down meals. You can find filling rice dishes for 6 ringgit, or nice seafood meals for 10 times the cost. Some children begging and...More

Hi, I am afraid,nobody has done a survey to measure that,however I didn't get sick and neither any of my friends.Food is well cooked so my advice avoid salad and raw fish and enjoy your vacation😊
