Food served here is simple yet delicious. Should try the asam fish, toufu, kangkong. You be suprise the price is very reasonable but be patience to wait for the food. There is always a big crowd.

You know this is a good eatery based on the crowd here. The seafood we ordered was delicious & super cheap! (Only rm143 for 10 of us).....really regretted not coming back here on our 2nd night as our dinner in Paksu Seafood Restaurant was unbelievably expensive & dissappointing!!

This restaurant is overhyped. Perhaps within Kuantan, this in one of the better choice for chinese "zhi-char". The food was tasty but nothing fantastic. We ordered mainly seafood dishes and yes, it was VERY cheap indeed.

We called in the afternoon for same day dinner reservation but was almost full. The only available empty slot was 5.30pm, so we had an early dinner.

Remember to make your reservations, preferably a day earlier, and you have to order your dishes when you make your reservations. Very efficient restaurant. They expect you to be punctual and serve you the food immediately once you get seated, so they can clear your table for another group. If possible, try to request for a table away from the kitchen, otherwise, it will be hot and stuffy.

This restaurant offers delicious food at a cheap price. Make sure you make advance booking for the dishes to avoid disappointment. Due to it's high volume of customers, you would expect people standing closely to your table while eating. They even asked us when are we going to finish, they are waiting for our table. Overall, the taste of food is good but don't expect too much of the ambience.

The seafood is cheapest in Kuantan! You have to reach there latest at 5pm or make a advance booking for the dishes first, otherwise is difficult for you to find a seat. 12 persons of us (include 3 children) only spent RM186 for the seafood! The food is so delicious! Friendly advise: Make sure make a booking and order the dishes first before you go.
