Tucked away behind some old rundown shops in the middle of the city this eatery (I won't even bother calling it a restaurant) has re-located numerous times in the past but seem to have settled down here now.
Its very basic, usually packed due to locals who have a high tolerance level for poor service, hot and noisy atmosphere (on the ground floor) and cold and stifled aircon (top floor) - the choice of seafood comes out of a pick-up truck semi-permanently parked by the kitchen. It's selection and freshness can be dubious at best. Lots of local vegetables,ferns and what-nots are stacked up on an tabletop.
Pricing is based on whether you are a local,tourist or on an expense account. Usually preferential treatment is given to guests and patrons who happen to be either related or of the same dialectical background as the owner - whom I find to be bossy,obnoxious and loud. However the boss-lady (towkay-neo) is pretty nice and decent.
Service levels are atrocious - most of the time you have to help yourself to extra utensils etc.
The food and dishes served varies in quality (and quantity) depending on the mood of the cook(s). It can sometimes be excellent, other times nonsensical.
Overall I would give it 2 stars (Poor), just short of Terrible.
