Today business trip to JB. Had a chance to visit this curry fish head restaurant. Surprisingly tasty. The curry is thick, not so spicy and rich in taste. 2 of us finished a big one. Price also very reasonable. The environment is not that fantastic but that is typical local surroundings. I like it. Will go again and again.

The reviews all over the internet speaks of 30min waiting time to have Kam Long Fish Head curry -extremely famous at Johor Bahru. That wait time is accurate. However that's about it. You need not extrapolate further. I checked queues at 10am, 12am and 2pm; and in all those slots the queue length was around 20-30mins not more, not less. Food, off course, finishes most days by 3pm. For family (or group) of four, I would recommend taking the large fish tail serving as it has enough meat. The fish head servings don't have much meat. The curry pot though contains a bed of beans, ladyfingers and cabbage which ensures a thick layer of vegetables. Honestly the curry (with vegetables) stand-alone would make a great meal with rice. Hence, this is a must visit place and I recommended to visit around 11am for an early lunch with delicious and memorable fish head curry broth. Total cost for meal for four 70MYR = 18SGD = 14USD including Chinese tea and rice for four! Must visit.

If you love to travel on a budget and seek value for money then my book on Amazon & Kindle should help you. Do search for ‘Scissors Paper Stones - A Family Budget travel guide’ in Amazon or kindle or Goodreads, to buy. Travel more to save more!

i wont say the fish head is fantastic.Alrhough there is lots of ingrediants in it,but the amount of sugar that they added into it is overwhelming.It tastes too sweet.
Only if they could cut down the amount of sugar,it will taste very good.

Been here a couple of times. Same taste so far. Recommended!

Tip: Use your spoon and scoop up the curry (top part oil/spice) with a bit of white rice, fish, slice of red chilli, dark and light soya sauce and chew/swallow that. Amazing

Worth queuing. However, there is possibility of no waiting before lunchtime on weekdays. Fresh ingredients and aromatic curry sauce!
