“Fresh seafood”
Reviewed March 31, 2013

We were here for lunch and the seafood was very, very fresh. Everything we had was good - the fish, prawns and squid especially and the fact that the catch was fresh certainly added to its advantage. Really good food and very, very cheap!

“Fresh seafood, great view, good service”
Reviewed January 28, 2013

Tried the milk crab and butter prawns. A member of staff volunteered to help with the crab and hammer. Great sunsets. And it's really affordable.

“Whether its value for $ or fantastic or lousy depends on where you are from !”
Reviewed January 13, 2013

For tourists this Riverview may be fantastic and cheap (cost of eating similar in 1st world is not comparable for a local). In short, what s your perspective and frame of reference. For locals and those from KL/PJ/Kelang we get better food in hole in wall or fancy restaurants. For a tourist from Thai land this seafood is nothing but bland and expensive !

I will be fair here.. its a better seafood restaurant cos there are not any comparable for miles/km until you reach Kelang, KL or Pangkor. You pay Rm45 for 3 small crab or 1 kg (all the bigger ones exported to Singapore and even China, we get the leftover D grades).

We had a small red snapper steamed with ginger for RM45 and that s reasonable as you pay more in KL or PJ. The chillu crab was so so and cannot be compared to seafood in east coast park of singapore eg Jumbo/No brand chilli, sweet sour crabs etc.

As for ambience, don t expect fine dinning or service, this is eat and leave place and its next to a big estuary. interesting for those whom have not eat next to river or the seafood.

Overall its ok - you will not be disappointed if you do not expect fine dinning chinese seafood. Be prepared to pay ?Rm 150 on average for table of 4 with 1 kg crabs, 1 small fish, 1 seafood omelette, 1 vegie, 1 big of fishball soup with seafood.

Good for overseas tourist to have dinner here before the fireflies

“Value for money seafood”
Reviewed January 12, 2013

My family favorite seafood restaurant for the last 10 years. Quality is retained throughout the years and the price has been kept reasonable despite lately seeing tourist walk-in to dine. Nice view of Sungai Selangor and very windy most of the time.

“River view Sunday lunch outing”
Reviewed January 6, 2013

A short one hour drive from petaling jaya using route 54 via sungai buloh. Stated late, thus had lunch at 230pm. Food order I consists of fish, crab, prawn and La La, with fish ball sop and Kailan as side dishes. Serving is moderate in size, tasty and fresh. Recommend to make the trip if u have nothing better to do, for my case, I had enough of malls during weekend. Price is reasonable. Took the route back via Kapar. Distance to travel is the same. Lastly, kids love the outing, as it surely better than another day out in the mall.
