It was a brief stop for a bite before checking into a resort nearby Cherating. After a long drive, we just wanted some soup. The steamboat soup with fish head was delicious, fish head pieces were fresh and tender. The gas cooker kept the soup nice and hot all the way through the meal. The other dish we tried was... More

The crab is ok, sambal squid pretty good. You can't set high expectations on areas surrounding there. You should feel thankful you can find this restaurant and can have a good meal and enjoy with your friends or family.

Revisit the place, still the same verdict, the stuffed crabs were so so, the other simple dishes were badly done. Shop was overcrowded on holidays, and understaffed. Service is not prompt. Will not recommend.

Personally, the stuffed crab is just so so. Compare to what we usually eat, indeed the crab shell is filled with crab meat instead of fish or pork paste. But the taste is just ok. But i would strongly recommend the grilled garlic tiger prawns! The tiger prawns are so fresh and by grilling it, you can totally taste the... More

We were so excited when we visited the place like years back, and when the food was served, we were kind of disappointed. Surely, the stuffed crab is special, but nothing to shout about, seriously!

We decided to revisit this restaurant after many years. The quality of the dishes is very ordinary. The speciality "Stuffed Crabs" were decent in price but the quality is a real disappointment - crabmeat was soggy and didn't seem fresh at all. Grilled prawns were priced way too high. Will not be visiting this restaurant again.

Was there again with a friend and wife. Decided to skip fish as its going to be pricey and sometimes its not fresh. Chose fried cuttlefish, chicken in tomato sauce, stuffed crab (a must), one mix vege, one fishball soup. All the dishes came out good except for the fishball. A little bit tasteless. Mix vege was ok but the... More

If you love crabs and too lazy to peel, try their stuffed crabs. One of the better one we had. RM9 each stuffed crab. You can even pack home. Gently steam to warm it up to maintain the juiciness
