“Yummy!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 25, 2013

Insisted my friend to bring us to Yong Kee after reading many reviews. We went over slightly after lunch to avoid the crowd & indeed not too many people around. Hubby & our friend had their fish soup with rice & i tried the bee hoon fish soup, hmm... yummy... When it was served up, the aroma of the soup, sweet & fresh smell... Hubby's fish soup is more fragrant & thicker than mine with bee hoon in it. Loved the freshness of the fish slices. Also had stir-fried bean sprouts, crunchy & salty (with salted fish), good to go with soup. Can't remember the price though but overall a must place to try when in Batam

“Delicious Fish Soup...”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 15, 2013

My family and I really enjoyed eating at Yong Kee Seafood Restaurant. One of their main dishes, which was the fish soup was simply delicious. The service was fantastic, we were well-served even during the busy hours. I highly recommend anyone visiting Batam to visit this restaurant. Some other fantastic dishes served are the tom yam soup, seafood and thai food. As this place is very popular, many drivers are aware of the location. There are 2 outlets, you should visit the one around Batam Centre, at the Komplek Hup Seng.

“Overhyped fish soup.”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed June 9, 2013

Many well known indon celebrities eat here just for the fish soup or as they call it sop ikan. Taste good but surely overhyped. Other seafood taste ok but not that fresh. Price wise not the cheapest but slightly on the high side judging by the place looks and service of resto.

“For its fish soup only!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed February 5, 2013

Dinner takeaway - 3 Feb 2013
For 8 adults & 3 kids
First time :)

Liked: Most of us ordered the fish soup & rice. Simply delicious.

Disliked:
(1) We also ordered the prawn porridge & nasi goreng special. The former was mainly prawn soup poured over white rice, not those kinda soft porridge. While the latter was nasi goreng with a sunshine egg & a fried chicken wing. Both were failure.
(2) While waiting for our takeaways, both of us & our driver decided to have a drink. The waitress who served us showed no interest of taking order & later, mixed it up. We ordered 1 Aqua & 2 Teh Sosro. I pointed to her to the fridge and mentioned "dalam botol" meaning 'in the bottle'. However, we were served 1 Aqua & 2 Teh SUSU i.e hot tea with milk! We told her politely that she served us the wrong drinks. Yet she insisted that she was right & she just walked away! Our driver called the supervisor & explained to him nicely on what happened. Quickly, the supervisor took over the situation & served us accordingly. To us, its just a matter of little understanding. However, we pitied the waitress who was still grumbling over the matter at one corner! :)

Although the other dishes failed us & the little misunderstanding we had, these will not stop us to comeback for Yong Kee's fish soup when we visit Batam again.

We gave the grade "Very Good" for its fish soup only.

Well, we agreed that Taste is a subjective matter. :)
