Food was good but service was slow, considering we were the only guests during lunch! They also missed one order but charged us for it and we did not have budweiser but got charged for it. Service was friendly, though.

The tourist is instantly drawn here with its brightly coloured red lanterns providing a warm ambience. The colour red is the theme right from the red plastic chairs to the tee shirts worn by the service staff. The food comes freshly cooked piping hot to your table with all the right flavours wafting from the kitchen. The steamed Bass fish floating in a lemony soup with a generous topping of scallops, mushrooms, tomatoes goes to make a very filling meal accompanied with plain steamed rice...rich in protein and low on calories. Chilled tiger beer cools you down in the humid weather. It's a no frills restaurant and service is fast and efficient. The menu is pretty much for seafood lovers!

This place is all about the food! If you are after a place with an romantic atmosphere, facing the beach, and watching the sunset, then this is not the place for you. However, if you are after good, yummy food, it is well worth while stopping by.

We are currently staying in Langkawi for 9 nights and we have been to this restaurant 3 times. My boyfriend absolutely adores the grilled Tiger Prawns (13MYR per 100grams) and I love their cantonese style chaw kway teow (10MYR), and their kang kong (medium 10MYR). The service has always been fantastic with attentive waiters, the decor isn't much to look at, unless you love being surrounded by red chairs and table cloths.

We had seafood both here and at Orkid Ria, I preferred the seafood here. The prices are cheaper than Orkid Ria and the food is just as good, if not better.

Otherwise, all in all, a nice friendly atmosphere with good food. They have an airconditioned room or you can sit outside. A great place to go if you are trying to escape the heat and looking for a meal.

I went here with my girlfriend a couple of nights ago. The service was outstanding, the food was excellent and the price was reasonable as well.

We got a pot of tea, spring rolls, chips, steamed rice and lemon chicken.

The pot of tea was massive and they kept refilling it for free which is always a bonus. The spring rolls were delicious! The chips tasted really good as well, although you could tell they were really not good for you!

We got 2 steamed rice as it was the cheapest rice, but we both ended up with lots of rice left over, so the next time, we will probably just get 1 steamed rice to share.

Lemon chicken is my girlfriends favourite dish and it didn't disappoint!

Overall a very nice experience and we will definetly go back again!
