“Good seafood restaurant”
Reviewed March 10, 2013

You see some restaurant at Cenang are not full but this one need to wait for like 15 minutes to get a table.The seafood are fresh as still alive in the tank. I think its expensive compare to the mainland but in tourist area its very normal. Food is good, and quick even though its pack and busy.

“Great place for seafood !”
Reviewed March 8, 2013

Orkid Rea is a fantastic restaurant when you are craving for fresh seafood. You can even choose your tiger prawns (18 ringgit per 100 gram) , alive lobsters and fresh fish...
It's located right in the tourist area of Pantai Cenang, but not facing the beachside.

On busy days and busy season, I would advise to book a table if you don't like to queue up.

We ordered sambal scallops and veg scallops, Tom yam with prawns as starters. The scallops were awesome the Tom yam good in taste, quiet authentic flavors.
Mains were Chili tiger prawns and grilled tiger prawns, beef curry. The prawns were one of the biggest I've ever seen and tasted really fresh, perfectly cooked. The beef curry disappointed slightly as the meat was to chewy and not tender. I guess you are supposed to go there to enjoy the fresh seafood not beef curry, I'll learn from my mistakes ;)

We drank about 9 beers which were dirt cheap (5 ringgit for one glass) total bill 440 ringgit for 3 of us. Service was quick and efficient, helpful and polite.

Will be back :)

“Happening place”
Reviewed March 2, 2013

This place is always full, whatever the time and whatever the season.
Despite the service being a bit slow at time, the food is amazing.
Very nice and friendly atmosphere.
You must try the seafood there, hummmm.
