I went at 830. No problem with getting seats nor parking. Good food. Fish, sotong and veg for 2 came up to rm34. Very friendly staff.

The only delicious item was the beggar chicken. The buttermilk prawn was so so. The yam basket while fresh was nothing unusual. Food was cheap though. Fish was fresh but cooking was standard. Better go there with reservations or else you have to wait around to pounce on a leaving table. Service was haphazard. Took our orders but the food came only an hour later. The table that came after us got their food first.

Meal for a family of 9 cost only RM 200 with drinks and beer.

Environment is hot so be prepared to sweat it out.

Cheap seafood but must be there by 6pm for dinner or else the restaurant will be overcrowded. I was there during the Chinese New Year week. Wanted to try the buttermilk prawn but not available. Ended up ordering fish in tomato sauce, kangkung belacan and homemade tofu with minced pork.

Although parking can be a challenge and seating is limited - or non-existent - after 6:30, the food here is ALWAYS fabulous. Anytime we've had friends or family visit us in Kuantan, we've brought them here, and they were all impressed.

My husband and I always order the sizzling prawns (you can also do chicken+prawn or have it with chicken only) and the squid fritters (served with sweet Thai chili sauce). BBQ pork or cashew nut chicken (both served in a fried yam ring) are also a couple of our favorites.

We often call ahead and order our food as take-out, so we don't have to deal with the crowds, which are pretty much a guarantee. Don't let that deter you though...you don't want to miss this food!!!

We were blown away by the price. 4 pax. Had mantis prawn (in salted egg), vege, pork ribs, tofu and a yam basket - for RM58! Great taste too!
