Panda working at Sands restaurant and bar is attentive and serviceminded. Ask him for taking photos! On top of that Sands has happy hour, 2 for 1, from 7-11pm every day. 1 cocktail is about 20 RM. They also make good tapas (30 RM for 4 dishes). Take the pizza combo if you have children. Our children loved the pizza.... More

An open sided restaurant with water features inside and out. This is located yards away from the lovely beach. Bushes and flowering plants everywhere. Breakfast here is full of choices, Asian and Western, with chefs just waiting to cook for you. The staff were very attentive and quickly brought refills of coffee. We also had dinner here and the staff... More

The place is part of the Rhu and there for convenient but it lacks atmosphere and good food. You eat there because you are hungry but not for the experience or the food itself. Too bad as the view on the Andaman see is a plus!

5 star food served (performance and taste), only thing to comment is the beverages selling at expensive compare to other resorts in langkawi, and yet langkawi is known as duty free island. Prepare yourself mosquito repellent if you there for dinner, super annoying towards mosquito bites especially if you bringing kids!

We ate here most of the time when staying at the Tajung Rhu hotel. The food at breakfast , lunch and dinner was always excellent as was the service. The breakfast buffet had a good selection of Asian an European dishes with live cooking of several dishes. The lunch and dinner menus were the same, with a vast and varied... More

'Sands', is quite appropriately named as you are literally meters away from it! You get a stunning view of the ocean and sunset while eating delicious, local food which is served by the most kind, friendly and helpful wait staff. If you are staying at the Tanjung Rhu Resort you must eat here at least once!

We are staying at the hotel of which this restaurant is part, so since there's nothing else around within walking distance, we had to eat here. Waiters are friendly enough but they just don't understand what you order or what you ask them, which after a while it gets very frustrating. Food is just ok, nothing spectacular and definitely overpriced...I'm... More

The staff at the sands were so tentative. We requested, if they could prepare traditional Malay food and they had no hesitations, and I must say that it was amazing! @instabuilt
