Our first trip to this end of the pier Chinese/Indonesian/Fish speciality restaurant - and we will be back:)
Great unusual location - watch the sunset at Calypso Bar ( a further extension of the pier) then order a sumptuous feast. Good quality ingredients, well cooked with efficient service able to cope with our table of 11 people without hesitation. We all had a great night out.

A must-go place to take photos. The food is just ok. We ordered a deep fried squid, a medium gong gong, a seafood fried rice and a dish of black pepper crab. As my friend who always goes to Singapore told me small crab doesn't have much meat, she suggested me to get one with 2.2kg. So I asked the waiter if a crab with 1.5kg is enough for the 3 of us, in addition to the other 3 dishes. He said he will bring the crab to me and have a look first. But he didn't. When the dish was brought to us, we found that they used 3 small crabs to make up the 1.5kg one. Though they were also meaty, that is too much for us. So I think the waiter should gave us advice to order fewer dishes or crabs or he should have shown the crabs to us as he said.

This restaurant is a must-go! I was amazed at the (almost) 360 views of the seascape. It is built over the water on stilts - ie Kelong. The food was mediocre (we are vegetarians) but have been told that the seafood is spectacular.

Cuyong is the best reaturant to visit ( around 30-45 minutes from lagooi), second is Tun Teja. Wow... nice taste & fresh seafood...
( don't forget to eat Gong-2 ( muscle) -- in cuyong restaurant).
