Wow!! Everything was just incredible. Total feast. The insanely delicious signature chili crab is out of this world: order lots of fried mantou to have with condensed milk or dip it in the chili crab sauce: unbeatable. Something as simple as nasi/fried rice, they know...how to make it a michelin style dish - so much flavor in every bite. Staff was simply wonderful, so friendly and attentive. We will absolutely be back here and will highly recommend this to our friends back in Singapore. Keep up the good work and huge compliments to all the staff!More

We headed there for our dinner. Love the Steam Red Snapper Teochew style Fish. Kailan with sea cucumber was okay. Gong Gong was nice too but wish that their lobster could have been sweet.Not much taste with the lobster meat. With 2 drinks & all...of that,we spent SGD69. The restaurant smell sweet when we walked inMore

Went there for dinner on 25th. The place was packed but we waited for the food for more than an hour. The staff service was pretty shoddy and could not explain why the food was so late. I would definitely give this place a miss.More

You choose, fish, seafood,lobster lively in tank. Fresh Crabs are wonderful. You choose the cooking, steam, grill or fried. Try the fried fresh potatoes the best not frozen. 100% cheaper than Singapore. A MUST

I brought my dad to try out the food after recommended by my friend and looking at the reviews. The food is really nice and suitable for my family taste bug. Not too oily and salty just nice! Most of the dishes are spicy and...I have requested them to give me the sambal belachan separately to cater to my dad who is non spicy. Food price is reasonable and you can eat in peace without sighting any stray cats or flies in the restaurant. It will be perfect if the location has sea view. Will be back again.More

I’ve been to many seafood restaurants in Batam over the years, and have to say Sei Enam is the best of them all. Well-priced dishes of high freshness and flavor - two of us had the cereal prawns, salted egg prawns, cereal slipper lobster, black...pepper slipper lobster, and hot plate tofu. Really good. It’s under 10mins walk (~7mins) from either Mega Mall, Batam Centre Ferry Terminal, or Harris Hotel (walk towards Batam Pos, also look out for the windmill Holland Bakery, which is opposite Sei Enam). Since there’s not much good seafood options at Mega Mall, this was highly welcomed. You can also WhatsApp them for reservations, as I understand they can get quite crowded with your groups (and the rest like me flicking to this place). Fully air conditioned, very comfortable dining venue. Will definitely return!More

This is the 2nd time we r there. We like that the restaurant is air con & clean. No cat around. Most of the seafood around kelong or under 933 their seafood sizes are small. Here at Sei Enam they are bigger. Photos say for...itself. We had a friend who is vegetarian. So we cater 3 types of dishes that she can enjoyed this round. The first time we were there, they prepared additional 2 dishes and we have left over Certainly u cannot compared the size if crab here with Singapore. It is smaller but fresh. Really money worth. Garlic chicken is something you want to order.More
