Food is average. Good spot near the beach with lovely setting but you would require a car to travel as it is quite a distance away. The owner is very friendly but not too sure a compliment to the lady owner as she is not friendly and helpful at all.

We visited Scarborough very recently and I can't agree more with what the previous reviewer (Nhanbread) shared. The quality of the food is surprisingly lousy. The batter of the fish is so hard, that when you cut through with the knife, the piece goes flying off the table. The fish is really small too, and definitely not enough to fill your tummy. For the price you pay for poor quality and small fish and chips, it is really expensive. I suppose being the only fish and chips or eating place at Tanjung Rhu area, they can get away with this poor quality. The only consolation is that there is a nice view of sunset. But I won't be going back there again unless there is absolutely nothing else to eat. You are better off driving to pantai cenang or tengah where there are better options.

Have been to Scarborough fish and chips many times as I now live on the island and in the past when there was a good cook and batter maker it was good but the owner has now quarrelled with the former excellent cook/chef and the quality of cooking ambience and food has gone downhill. The last time I went there a week ago, the fish was done to a crisp and the batter so hard I needed a kango hammer to cut through it. The fish was so small I needed a magnifying glass and the so called salad side dish has gone and replaced by a mean concotion of tasteless carrot and wisps of lettuce. When I got home I realsied that I still had some of the batter stuck in my gum and had to get a tweezers to remove it. No longer the place to go I'm afraid but try Coco's and Mangoes as well as many others in the Kuah town are like GLK which are good value for money.Oh yes, and it rained that evening and I got soaked by a leaking roof !!

Simple food menu but food is fresh and good. Ambience is casual and very relaxing with view of the sea and island. The staff is also very friendly.
