Pos:
1. Very good spread and quantity can serve a whole group

3. Ambience and location
Cons:

2. Had better and bigger crabs elsewhere

“Atrocious . Never to go again.”
1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 11, 2013

Golden prawn 933 was a complete disappointment. This was my, also my wife, first trip to Batam. After checking into our hotel, we took a taxi to 933. We reached about 2.30pm, after the lunch time crowd. The restuarant was quite empty. Our table was filthy. No body clean it. The surrounding tables were littered with left over plates and food. We had ordered our food at the entrance, before sitting down at our table. We ordered six dishes, rice , one beer and one coconut drink. The rice came, but the plates, forks and spoons NEVER came.The Tiger beer came in a bottle UNOPENED and without cup. The coconut drink NEVER come. We waved to the waiters but nobody responded. When any waiters passed our table, we asked them, and ALL said wait, but never come back. We had to get our own plates, opened our beer and drank from the bottle. The first dish arrived after haif hour, it was passable. Other dishes were horrible, especially the sashimi oysters, which were supposed to be fresh, but were stale and shrivelled. Overall, the food was bad, the service non existence, the environment filthy and the price not competitive, Batam standard. Never to return.

“Appalling! Way below tourist standard! Avoid, pls”
1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 9, 2013 via mobile

Granted that it's Hari Raya & they were grossly understaffed. That should not have had any bearing on the quality of food served up for lunch today. Prawns were deep fried, to mask its unfreshness, chilli crab's only saving grace was its sauce - the rest of the dishes, not even worth a mention. Truly disappointing - avoid it at all cost!

the food here is quite nice and very resonable compared to back home. service is not bad. u can get interesting fresh sea food if the season is right. not too far from town but a little touristy for me.

“Not too bad, but too many flies”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 30, 2013

Food is okay, at least for the price I paid.
Reasonably okay, but just too many flies flying around, that I cant eat in peace.
