I had lunch at the board restaurant. I picked my fish and they had them grilled to perfection. The atmosphere and the food was great. Prices are not expensive. Highly recommended.

We were thankfully spoiled for choice in Langkawi and ate in here two nights in a row. The claypots were the best we had in Malaysia and all very affordable. Really friendly owners and staff. Very pleasant.

Okay, so hybrid peas is probably a literal translation and I'm not slagging anyone off, i "speak" 1 language and i manage to murder it daily, so fair play.
