Let me begin by showing the appreciation of a family of eleven that just returned from a splendid magical vacation in this One Island One Resort favourite of ours.

staff were very friendly and very helpful with explaining the dishes. Also, their recommendations for substitutes were fabulous. Great veg and non veg menu! If you can't eat anything, let them know they will do anything to accommodate!

Fresh and tasty - great choice and terrific value. Always busy and buzzing with a great atmosphere no doubt fuelled by the great tasting food and beachside location. Great views both day and night - try and book a table on the outer edge for the best views.

If there's one place for dining you have to reserve early when on the island is certainly Uncle Lim for it is indeed very popular with the island's guests.

Dinner at Uncle Lim, Overrated reviews from from the internet. I personally feel that is just another normal local/nonya/chinese restaurant. Nothing special about the dinner. However, service was great. Food was served fast but the quality was not up to our expectations.
