“Less crowd. OK food.”
Reviewed April 18, 2013 via mobile

I wish my brain stopped comparing this place to Orchid... But I just can't help it. We waited long for our food although there was only another table before us.

We hardly had much beef in our ginger beef...

Overall I guess it was ok. Just not the best.

“Give it a try if you have never tasted local seafood”
Reviewed September 30, 2012

If you have travelled around Malaysia and the far-east, as much as we do, this place offers average food - both sea-food and other like noodles, fried rice, etc.
To "first time" foreign visitors - who wish to "go local" this may seem a very good place - good friendly service, the idea of "fresh from the sea" sea-food at prices foreigners can avoid - plus chilled drinks and beer. The live lobster or live fish presented at your table for your viewing and order, maybe not be the same as that served cooked on a plate - however delicious it tasted. You may be paying for a different seafood, per weight-wise and quality-wise. There are better chinese restaurants on the island.
Tip: Most restaurant kitckens use aji-no-moto (an artificial sweetener ) to make food taste very good - if you are aware of the effects of this sweetener, do make a point that they do not add this in the dish you ordered. We often experienced intensive dry throat and had to drink lots of liquid to overcome the bitter after-taste in the mouth.

“Good sea food”
Reviewed August 25, 2012

Ask for the lobster special .... they make it in four different styles as per your preference . You get to choose your unfortunate dinner .
