Overpriced, for the service and the taste. It might suit chinese people, but for a foreign taste it's just not the one. And i guess that the only reason it suits chinese people, it's because the staff can speak both mandarin and cantonese. My wife is chinese, and even she said that by the reviews posted here, she expected much more. We had a much more delicious and authentic fish and seafood at the pier next to the dolphin statue that costed three times less.
Of course this one wasn't bad at all, but for the greater feeling of Malaysia and this city, you shouldn't be listening to the raving chinese people around you, you should try something better, and there are many other places.
Cheers!

I went to Hua Hing after randomly picking it out of the various seafood restaurant companies in the Asia City food complex. Did not regret! Service was fast and efficient, food was so so good! It was so fantastic that I went there for dinner two nights in a row! And most importantly, the food was really cheap! RM130 worth of prawns, crabs, squid, vegetables and young coconut drinks fed four people well!

We have eaten here a few times now and the only thing you need to make sure of is that if you are a tourist and not there with a local (like we were) you need to make sure that you speak to someone who understands and speaks GOOD english as the only problem you will have is making sure you get what you are "ASKING FOR" and paying the appropriate price.

The food here is definitely better than the other two most popular seafood restaurants at Api-Api and on the waterfront as there prices are expensive because of location.

The variety here is graet as we tried everything but really enjoyed the garlic and chilli scallops, the whole deep fried crunchy fish and most of all the prawns done any which way you want, but understand that in Malaysia 99% of all prawn dishes you order all come out totally in the shell as its by weight.......

Also as its byo and licensed with beer and soft drinks,if you happen to take a nice bottle of white or red wine and it still has the old style cork stopper make sure you take your own cork screw as the don't have one and don't know what one is?????

Love the place and would go back anytime!
