A group of 10 had a great local seafood. We had a great dinner after much fun at the Escape. The journey from Escape was about 30 mins (taxi).

This place is full of activities during the weekends only. Lots of food being sold here- more of a food court and alarm carter dishes. You can rent a bicycle there and cycle round the PADI fields and see sunset at Malindo beach

The name evokes a nostalgic feel of going back to one's hometown. It has many interesting corners for photo oppurtunities suitable for family outings or meetings. The food is average. To note the use of organic butterfly pea flower in the barley drink is novel....More

Crowded with weekenders, mostly locals with groups and family. Vegetable dishes are average rated. Signature ikan bakar dish just average, the seasoning tasted just like other stores without much differences. Priced mid high.
