But do not expect the best of service. Clientele seems to be 70% local and 30% tourist. The restaurant is located south of Centre Point (away from the sea). They had huge tiger prawn of which the largest one is RM 70 each.

Do locals really eat here? Tourists place. Rats are dinner companions, service is poor, food is mediocre, don't expect cheap. I won't be back.

Not sure if it was just our luck but we visited this place after reading the wonderful reviews on tripadvisor. Was there 16 Feb 2013 and was not an enjoyable experience. The predinner was lovely, looking at all the live food and choosing. Great for kids. At the table, got bitten by mossies, drinks did not come and were confused, dishes didn't arrive and after an hour we cancelled the order. a small plate of scallop cost rm200, perhaps it was festive season pricing? we were at Portview the night before the the price was similar but the service 100times better.Heard tables around us complaining it they had to wait an hour before their food arrived as we left. we were lucky we arrived at 6.15 before the rush.had to double check the bill but still ended up paying for things we never were served, as could not make out all the scribbles until we deciphered them at home. would not go back unless one day they were really free and not peak period.
