We went for dinner twice and the seafood is quite fresh. The good thing we like is there is a price tag for each seafood. The place maybe a bit rustic. However we enjoyed the food.More

Loads of tourists - so it can be a little chaotic and a bit time consuming (to wait for the food). Food was rather fresh, and the staff spoke some English. Came to about RM120 for 2 of us (which was OK by KL standards)...More

我们第一晚去了对面的那家餐厅,其实那家更好吃,价格差不多。第二晚来了这里,点了龙虾,斑马螺,还有鱼,龙虾非常老,斑马螺根本咬不动,味道也一般般 I had one meal in the restaurant opposite to it, that one actually tastes better, price is similar though. Second evening we came here to this restaurant, ordered lobster, quite “old” one; ordered the zebra shell, you can hardly chew to be honest
