Fresh Seafood and vegetable choose by Uncle Lim. Taste was good, no oily food. He's the person you need to find our more about his history at the resort.

However every dis that we tried over the two nights were fantastic. The staff were fantastic, which seems to be standard over every restaurant in the resort. The... More
