“Excellent Chinese Food & reasonably priced”
Reviewed October 8, 2013

This restaurant is located close to the Langkawi Sheraton, They offer pickup and drop off of patrons to their restaurant. This is very handy as there is little within walking distance to the hotel.
We ate at the restaurant on several nights as we found the service and food of exceptional value.
They had a wide variety of seafood including "swimming fish". The cook was good and the portions good size. We asked the "boss" to recommend the dishes for us. We had fish, prawns, crabs, scallops veges and beef and this came to MYR1,400/- for our party of 14. This included a generous ration of beer!
The proprietor's wife besides being in charge of the finances also doubles as cabbie when the business was busy.
If you are bored waiting, there is also free Wi-Fi. But you will not have time for that. We were picked up and delivered back to the hotel fully sated within 2 hours.
Highly recommended

“Best seafood I had in Langkawi”
Reviewed September 29, 2013 via mobile

The location was quite hidden. Far from town and beach. But we managed to find it. Worth it! Crab and Lala were good. Even the vege we ordered taste so good.

“Delicious Chinese Seafood”
Reviewed September 14, 2013

This is a great place for seafood lovers and a must while on Langkawi in my view. The extensive menu also offers a selection of live seafood cooked in different ways and with different spices (I recommend the fried live crab with Chinese spices). The delicious Chinese seafood more than compensates for the more basic set-up of the restaurant. We enjoyed the food so much that this was the only place where we ate twice during our week on Langkawi. The restaurant also offers a shuttles service to and from the surrounding hotels.

“Beware if you order their seafood!!! The restaurant should be re-evaluate again by tripadvisor”
Reviewed September 12, 2013

Please be extra careful when you plan to order seafood from the staff. There have differentiate the seafood price to 'live' and ' fresh' price. Of course the 'live' seafood is more expensive. However, we immediately changed our plan to have dinner in this restaurant because highly recommended by our friends that the seafood is very fresh and cheap!!!. When we reach there and we told the staff that we want to order 'fresh' lobster, rm 19/100g and the staff just take our order without showing the lobster and weigh it in front of us which normally restaurant will do it. Ok, that's fine !!! and we didn't realize it at that time as well. After that, we want to ask one of the staff what is the charges to drink the wine we bought earlier and the staff said rm 10/bottle. It Is too expensive!!! So, we tried to ask the manager and he said rm 20/bottle. That's ridiculous!! The charges is more expensive than the wine We bought earlier!!! When we going to pay our bill and go to the counter, the lady boss charge us the 'live' lobster rm 29/100g price instead of 'fresh' price because she said they don't have frozen lobster!!! We told her that our friends just had it yesterday, then she said "ohh yes, we have but I don't know how the staff take the order and it is between you and my staff. " That answer really made us nothing to say anymore But no doubt the surrounding is very peaceful, nice and have fresh air. The food taste delicious as well BUT just want to remind you all to be extra careful, ask properly and better recorded it down when the staff take the order.

Reviewed August 26, 2013 via mobile

It's actually nearby to langkawi airport and I'm staying nearby to this restaurant. I've been visited this restaurant twice during my stay in Langkawi and the food never disappointing me. The food is not too pricy and the staffs are quite friendly too.
