“Good but little pricey”
Reviewed April 17, 2014

Likes the food, delicious and tasty

Dislike that some dishes cost nearly RM100 especially for a simple steam fish.

overall good place to dine with privacy.

“Beware of the bill!”
Reviewed March 24, 2014

This is the kind of place for large families, tourist buses etc. Not for couples. Ok, the display of seafood like lobster and crab is interesting, and the service rather efficient (but uninterested), but we have a different idea about how a seafood restaurant should look like and function.
Just be very careful with the bill: the total amount will be twice the amount you calculated yourself. They count extras for every detail on the table. And I have never seen the lobster weight we ordered in meat. Mostly trash ....
Sorry people, you need to redesign this place and look at it from the perspective of the type of client you target ...

“Family dinner”
Reviewed March 13, 2014

When my youngest daughter came home for a holiday, we were looking for a place to have our dinner before their flight home to London.
There are a few restaurant all over the City of Kota Kinabalu, but we choose this one. It is at the side of Promenade hotel facing the south China Sea, Kota Kinabalu city seafront.
The reason is, there are ample or various seafood available freshly display just beside your tables.
We have choosen a great dinner of lobster and fish.
The food is just what you wont fine at any other restaurant.
The place itself is very cozy and my grandchildren has space to play while food were being cook.

“Incredible!”
Reviewed February 19, 2014

We ate here as a family last night. I have never seen so much live seafood on display in a vast series of aquariums. We chose grouper in curry sauce, grouper in soy sauce, wild tiger prawns, lobster in butter sauce, black crabs, clams and king prawns with a bottle of very pleasant Chardonnay. The sauces were delicious, the service very attentive and we have had no tummy troubles so far!
