i knew this restaurant from the brochure i got from hotel, this restauraant get a reward as best chinese cuisene seafood at Kinabalu, so we search the location and it's not far from our hotel, 5 minute only use by taxi.
this restaurant have a big place, it's huge with 2 big chinese lantern in front of their door and we can choose the seafood at their own aquarium, yoou can choose all of the seafood, start from crabs, white clam, tiger prawn, scallo, etc, any kind of seafood you want to cook and request how they will dish it for you.
we spent much at this restaurant around RM 300 but it's worth with meals i have got, so so yummy, excellent seafood, no oubt why this restaurant get a reward.
Note. find a table with sea view at the end of this restaurant (outdoor), and enjoy the sunset around 6pm. cos i do that too..

The food was served fast. The staff were nice. Although, we were placed near the sea so we can smell the sea from our table which was not so pleasant for me. We loved the Chili Crabs! It was very tasty and wasn't so spicy.

It is one of the oldest seafood restaurant in Kota Kinabalu. It cater mainly to tourists as I hardly see any locals when I dined there 2 nights in a row. It's not cheap but the produce are really fresh. A dinner for two with 3-4 dishes will set you back between RM 200 - RM 500 depending on the value of the seafood you order. I would suggest that you give the high value items a miss, even though the prices are relatively cheaper than Kuala Lumpur and it's really fresh, the cooks are just under skill in handling such items. They then to overcook the items and mixes it with the wrong choices of ingredients. if you are on a short trip and need to satisfy your desire for seafood, it will suffice. If you have more time, I would suggest that you explore other restaurants.

The food was just okay. The price is expensive and the serving portion is small. The good thing is just the sunset view.
