“Worth the money”
Reviewed July 12, 2014 via mobile

Introduced by one of my husband's tour guide friend in KK. Good choice of seafood dining restaurant. Order 5 types of dishes and all really up to our level of expectation. Service is good as well. Highly recommend their special "abalone" cooked with their special homemade sauce. Remember to order fried rice to mix with those abalone. Perfect!

“Great food atmosphere & value”
Reviewed July 9, 2014 via mobile

Ate here twice & was a resounding success. Make sure you get to the back right corner from the street side. Best of the 4 in the square & most patronised. Had fresh seafood prawns, crab squid & steamed fish all fantastic. Great service from nice staff. Captain hector was our guy, great advice on ensuring we had a great feed.

“Great value for money”
Reviewed June 25, 2014

Very convenient location really close to port and mainroad - rain drove us in without research and the food turned out to be pretty decent. Standard Malaysian seafood fare i.e. good selection of fish, shellfish, crustaceans and veggies. Noodles here were excellent, service good and in terms of value for money, unbeatable.

“Good price good food”
Reviewed March 7, 2014

It's in the city area and easy to located. It is near Le Meridian and Cititel In a big area of food court having a lot stalls selling seafood.

I had my lunch here.

Just abalone and a plate of seafood friedrice.

The seafoodfried rice is really very 'seafood'. I have fish fillet, octopus, prawn, squid with egg and some vegie.

The abalone was very nice also.

“Been here to eat in 2010, 2012, 2013, 2014 and don't want to anymore”
Reviewed February 10, 2014 via mobile

First visit in 2010 had the ingredients of a great Sabah seafood eating experience. Jumping fresh seafood, cheap beer, nice flavor and awesome price. I recall 3 of us had giant cockles, 2 giant mantis prawn, crabs, seafood fried rice, top shell and 4 cans of beer for about USD60.

Next visit in 2012 had similar great experience and we readily dug into the fresh seafood. Wished it was like this on my every biz visit.

2013 visit was awkward as while seafood remained fresh(you choose living specimens off many water tanks btw), the place was visibly packed with tourists, food tasted below average and the price noticeably much higher. Was thinking to move on to eat at other places in my next visit to KK.

For lack of knowing other spots in this visit, we visited Hua Hing in our current visit. We were surrounded by Chinese tourists with their many tour buses parked nearby. Perhaps seafood is expensive in China as the listed price on the water tanks was astronomically high very much similar to KL prices and some even higher. Food was better than my last visit but for the price I had to pay and the overall experience value, nothing more than Average rating from me.

Next time I will be eating somewhere else. Time to hunt for new spot.
