Used to go there regularly. Pro: Food is good especially the signature dish of claypot steamed grouper, lemon clamp, stewed pork, by the sea. Con: expensive, no price list, you only know the bill when you want to pay, poor decoration. look like a typical cheap chinese char chai stall, won't impress your guest at first look.

We liked this place so much we came back for more and returned the following evening. The seafood is fresh and tasty and prices are not too bad at all. Would certainly recommend.

This intimate little restaurant is cozy. The food on offer here was just excellent, it needed a little salt but that was easily fixable. Despite not being busy the service was slow. So if a number of people order fairly close together, those at the back of the queue could be waiting a while.

For the past 30 years, I have been to thousands of restaurants and foods store locally and overseas. If you ask me which restaurant you like most ? My answer is, considering the tasty , quality,varieties of foods, also the environmental factor of the place (just beside the sea front with cool wind), I would strong recommend Hai Boey Restaurant to be your first choice of Dinning place.

This restaurant allocated in a small fishing village, nearby airport n away from the busy Georgetown city area.The restaurant was set at the beach. The environment was great! The beach was well maintain,it was clean. This place is great for children too. They get to play the swing, slide ,sand n there was few windmills standing on the beach. If you arrived before 7 pm , u get to enjoy nice sunset view. There was aquarium filled with few lobsters,prawn, fishes, oyster,baby octopus...The food was tasty,especially clay pot steam fish, fried brinjal n clam. The only thing disappoint me was the size of their crab. It was too small! During weekdays try to reach there early to avoid traffic jam in Bayan Lepas. The food was fresh, not very salty n oily, price was fair but more expensive than hao you seafood allocated in the same area but their environment are cleaner.
