The service there is very good. They have alot of staffs waiting to serve. However, the seafood there are not too fresh. The sambal mussels are small and with sand. Sambal prawn not fresh. Fried chicken is delicious. Will not go there unless I got no other choices.

Lack of variety; quality was bad. The restaurant perched on top of a marsh so you could smell a hint of sulphur in the air.

No prices reflected on the menu; better check the price before ordering.

This restaurant is located at Habour Bay. There are 2 Wey Wey Seafood Restaurants at Habour Bay, We had our dinner at the original Wey Wey. Lots of live creatures from the sea ! There were quite a number of service staff so service was pretty fast. Besides serving all the live and dead creatures from the sea, they also serve both spicy and non-spicy otahs. There are 12 of us and we had steam live prawns, fried crabs (recommended by the restaurant), steam live garoupa, deep fried calamari rings, 2 plates of eggs, 2 plates of vegetables, kampong fried chicken and close to 20 glasses of fresh juices. The bill was reasonable considering the amount that we had consumed. We would recommend this restaurant to anyone looking for good seafood !

Good seafood restaurant located at Batam's Harbor Bay. The ikan asam manis is really delicious and the crab with padang sauce is also very good. Service is good and the prices are on the average of all seafood restaurants at Harbour Bay.

We arrived at about 4.30pm and they will getting ready to set the tables. Everything is in a mess, they have many staff but poorly trained staff who work slow and don't seem to know what to do next. The utensils were not properly washed and you can find stain, but we overcome it by washing ourselves, clean the chairs as they are stained and wet. Due to low tide, the smell and the rubbish on the seabed are really not desirable but I guess one has to take it as part and parcel of their lifestyle. The Manager is helpful and is patience with us (group of 10) and ordering went well, but as the menu has no pricelist which we are not comfortable with, we did make a request for the pricing to be put down on the order. The food was delicious, hot and good portion and overall price was about 40% cheaper than we can get in Singapore Che Zar place. Also thing to take note is they do have different quality beer of the same brand, therefore you need to know your brand and packing well enough to pick and chose the right stuff, or you ended paying top dollar for the lower end quality. I have rated the atmosphere as 'Very good' as it is rather scenic when you look across the water to see rows of attap houses, the water, an container ship in the midst of the sky and modern light bulbs, it is breezy and I would say it can be romantic if it is high tide Or you can overlook at the seabed and the smell.
