The atmosphere is meh. Definitely don't come here if you are classy. Staffs service was also meh. I would only come here for the food. It's cheap and fresh. You can enjoy all the seafood. Just point to the pictures on the menu.

asian trendy sea food plus plus; outside area with huge trees; enormous menu including, clams, crab, river prawns, snails. Portions were not huge but very tastily prepared asian stylings (loads of lemongrass, lime, chili etc). Waiters not great with english so the pictures menu helped. much cheaper than we expected. nice lunchtime treat.

It is true what my recommender colleagues say about this place. The atmosphere is not really charming, it feels cool and not really tasteful even though the basic requirements for a real stylish place would be there.
Nevertheless, go there for seafood. They definitely have it all. We had clamps and a crap and it was superb fresh and tastefully prepared. With two beer (which is not cold enough ) we paid 10€. Can you imagine??
So what I recommend is that if you are really starving for seafood, this is the place to go and to enjoy without any regretts, you don't need atmosphere for that.
A little minus to the very young service staff, don't hang around in the restaurant , even if you have nothing to do there is no need to show to your guests that you are bored.

We could not wait to leave this place. It has a GIGANTIC screen in the middle of the courtyard, with the volume set rather loud. For most of our time there, they were showing a beauty contest ( but no bikinis :( ), with the same piece of elevator muzak repeated ad nauseum. Horrid. Food-wise, tried yo aim for some of the favourites from other reviews, but most disappointed. Grilled scallops with shallots were very good. Tiger prawns cooked in coconut milk were good, but didn't really taste of coconut, so nothing very special. Steamed red tilapia not very good. Overall, our least pleasant meal of the long week-end.

Not sure why more people have not found and tried this gem. It has a great selection of live creatures in tanks. The extensive menu has pictures so you just have to point. Yes you will have to look twice at the prices...they are that cheap. The food was very well cooked and tasty. The service was attentive. Seems one staff was totally dedicated to topping up your beer with fresh ice. Was there at lunch time and it teamed down rain. They had a staff member at the kerb with a big beach umbrella escorting guests from their taxis and cars into the restaurant. Now that's service for you! Would definitely recommend to anyone who enjoys really good fresh seafood. Would be going back again next trip.
