Don't get me wrong, the food taste was OK, and we loved the tiger prawns (big and juicy!). However, the impression of langkawi having cheap seafood is really a myth. We ended up paying more for this meal compared to the same meal in KL. Sure, you can give it a try as it's close by to the Sheraton and Berjaya hotels, and you don't have to travel into Kuah town for seafood. Don't say you weren't warned about the prices.

Like other reviewers, we thought the mass of lights spelled disaster. Not so.

The service was faultless, the staff helpful & informative and above all the seafood was fresh and well cooked.

This isn't a tourist trap - it's really a trap for those who don't know when to stop eating...

We visited Shin Me seafood village twice in our 10 day stay. Do
not judge this place on us appearance - simple plastic tables and
chairs and loads of fairy lights, we initially thought it looked tacky.
However this was part of the charm and it is set back from the
road so better than first appearances. The food however is what
you come for and it is fantastic. You can choose your fish or
seafood and then have it prepared several different ways. The fish
tastes so fresh. We had garoupa which was delicious and 'caught'
ourselves - quite an experience grappling with this strong fish in
the tank. We also tried the lobster shin me style which was a mild
sweet and sour sauce which the kids loved. They also have meat
dishes if fish isn't your thing. The staff were very friendly and
genuinely eager to please. They have just started a shuttle service from local hotels - Berjaya, Mutiara Bay, Danna, Sheraton and so
we had a shuttle the second time. It's about 15mins on the main road from the Berjaya. I recommend it highly.

Had a fabulous dinner last night at Shin Me.

My husband loved the fresh fishand assorted seafood and the kids and I ate more traditional chinese fair. He loved the crab but thought the bbq prawns a little dry - generous servings.

Clean and quick service - would recommend to all!

Everytime I go back to Langkawi to visit in-laws, I will definitely have dinner at Shin Mi, almost every night! Besides good ambiance, they serve excellent dish in a very reasonable price and friendly staffs too! You've gotta try out its newly opened restaurant in Kuah Town - Nasi Padang. They serves good food as well!
