The staff was very polite and they had a great pool table which was the perfect activity for a couple of backpackers. The live band had great playback.

Situated on the waterfront in Kotakinabalu, this is an ideal place to spend the evening, have some drinks and dinner. Prices are reasonable. There is Malaysian pop music being dished out by the band with a sprinkling of english numbers.

The only thing that was good about this place is the seaview. Apart from that, the service is lacking and we did not eat there. Good place to hang out with some drinks.
