“Lovely fish and chips”
Reviewed July 14, 2013

discovered this small place near four seasons hotel on langkawi by chance....kids from UK and didn't have fish and chips for a while. Knew I was taking a big chance but it turned out to be fab - one of best Fish and chips, served with choice of beers (includes hoegardens) and other pizza style options. Best part was its right on beach......great location and very polite and clean service.

“Fish & chips just by the beach”
Reviewed June 25, 2013

If you're around Tanjung Rhu area, do make a pit stop at Scarborough Fish & Chips, which is located just by the beach. We ordered a Deep Fried Snow Fish which is very nicely battered and a Pan-fried Dory Fish, fresh and appetizing with lemony sauce. Both come with salad and generous portion of fries. If you're not really into fish, they have some chicken dish too. We definitely enjoyed not only the food, but also the view and sea breeze. There's a water sports tent not faraway, so you'll be able to enjoy the sea view while watching colourful parasails gliding by.

“GOOD 'Mat-Salleh' Fish & Chips!”
Reviewed June 24, 2013

One thing about searching for Langkawi good eateries is that you need to dig deep and they're always hidden (and sometimes doesn't come with a sign at all). I was skeptical to find a lone fish & chips restaurant right next to Tanjung Rhu beach, and its nearby some attractions (with $$$ price tag, catered for foreigners).

Yes, was very skeptical at first...

To my surprise, the price is quite decent, and after sampling most of the meals with a group of friends, I got to give TWO THUMBS UP (toes as well). The waiting takes awhile (about 15-20 mins), but we were never bored since there are great view of the beach to be enjoyed, along with nice cold drink and the complimentary salad (LOVE the dressing. Sweet, sour and nutty!). The chips are huge and fat, which is a rare finding in a kampung Kedah. The fish melts in your mouth...lovely!

Also, if you need a place to bunk, what do you know...they two campervans available for rental! Will be coming back again, perhaps after a good swim at Temurun falls, just 10-15 mins drive ;)

“A very nice surprise!”
Reviewed June 19, 2013

It was almost an accident that we ended up at this restaurant. We passed by it just before stopping at Pantai Tanjung Rhu and some friends recalled that this place had good reviews so we did a U-turn and decided to have lunch here.

I had deep-fried dory and it was quite good! My friends ordered different stuff and all the dishes received general praise. I was rather delighted to see that the chips were a substantial size and well-cooked, instead of the stringy hard fries one so often gets at many places.

The restaurant is located by the beach and as the weather at that time was good, we had a lovely view of the sea and after eating, traipsed out onto the beach for a while. Definitely a pleasant atmosphere!

“Truly the best !”
Reviewed June 18, 2013

The grilled barracuda was excellent, snow fish and dory were very well done too. Calamari rings were yummy and the fries were crispy on the outside and soft on the inside.

My son left his 2 days old G-shock watch in the toilet and the owner kept it for us. When we return to Scarborough the next day, the own could recognised our vehicle straight away and return the watch to us.

Highly recommended for both the food and services !
