Read thru some reviews and realized that this place has no consistency.There were good and bad experiences. Well, my experience with them was horrible. Took us forever to get their attention. And when the second dish arrived, our Chinese tea hasn't. How hard is it to dunk in some tea leaves into hot water??? The food came really really slowwww. We finished our rice and majority of the dishes have not arrived. Some of the staff were pretty rude to us. Yes we understand you have lots to do but no need for rudeness.

Food was ok nothing great and the servings were rather small. The highlight of the evening was the BILL. There were 8 of us so we roughly estimated the price. Seeing that it was a seafood restaurant with fresh seafood, we ordered fish and the portion was enough for two people.And that tiny little anchovy came up to a whooping RM 80! We have eaten in various seafood restaurants and RM 80 usually can be shared by 5 people. But it is really to expensive and the quality of the food does not justify their prices. Understand that it is a tourisy spot but why the cut throat prices? Locals dine there too. Well not all our food and drinks came but it was still stated in our bill and again we had to wave our hands till our arms hurt to get someones attention.

Sigh. Well i know im never going back there again. It looked very promising form the outside.

The location is by the road side, you can easily spotted the restaurant as it has a red signage. The food is affordable, cheaper compared to other similar restaurants and sells great Chinese dishes. The staff is friendly and best part is the waiting time for food is short, you can enjoy your pipping hot meal in average of 5-10 minutes.

We had a great evening of Seafood here. Don't be put off by the local restaurant appearance. Compared to its posh upmarket neighbour ,it may have plastic chairs & concrete floors, but their staff are knowledgable and helpful about the live seafood in the tanks along the back wall, & how best to serve it.
Another good seafood restaurant along Cenang Beach

I spent two nights and had Chinese seafood dinner at Cenang beach area.

It was great that we managed to try this on the last night.
The staff were very friendly and got us seated very soon.
Compared with the seafood menu and pricing with the one we had the night before nearby across the street , which obviously much reasonable rate.
Comparing with the few restaurant for affordable Chinese seafood meal, worth to check this out.

We ordered for crab and vege. It was tasted good, though we might have to be patience due to the crowd.
Overall, this restaurant valued for money and glad that we tried.

I will definitely return to this as my first choice when I'm back to Cenang beach for seafood dinner.

This seafood restaurant was similar to most others on Langkawi. Prices were advertised in RM per 100 g, so you had to try and figure out what weight of calamari, prawns, fish or lobster you wanted (weight was in the shell). The seafood was fresh, but we ended up spending a lot more than we expected because of the way the prices are advertised. Beware, if you plan to eat at one the live seafood restaurants on Langkawi take plenty of cash.
