always enjoyed coming here for a quick easy tasty fix
until i got bumped onto a small table despite the whole restaurant being empty, and despite being a regular who orders a LOT of food.
i do recommend the fries, the ribs and the mudpie though

Thank DrMikeDC

Food was good and the atmosphere was great. Order was bright to me wrong but without a fuss they changed it for the right one, in the bargain they only charges me for one beer for the error.
Good decor as in others but had a good feel away from the busy shopping mall alongside.

We (4 adults and 3 children) came here because my niece's (birthday girl) favourite food is seafood, specifically, prawns and I wanted a themed restaurant where they would sing to her! Although Malaysian food features a lot of prawns, this place offers different ways of cooking it. The meat of shrimp is also finer when compared to prawns.
We started with the Secret Recipe Shrimper's Net Catch. The children could peel the shrimp easily and the lemon gave it that special zest. They mixed some into the New England Clam Chowder as well! The recommended pear and berry salad was something different - refreshingly exotic by Asian standards!
The kid's drinks were rather limited. Everything was a mix or smoothie and since the children don't like yoghurt, (we tried Jenny's Favourite, Run Forrest Run and Blueberry Smoothie) we ordered novelty instead - Lemon Ups. These lemon drinks came in pink or blue in tall glasses with flashing lights. The adults had mango sparklers and coffee.
We shared the Bucket of Boat Trash (the kids loved the lobster tails), Dumb Luck Coconut Shrimp (a little dry and the orange jelly thing wasn't liquid enough to dip into), Shrimper's Heaven(the tempura was best - with zesty dipping sauce) and Baby Back Ribs (done just right - I would go so far as to say the best ribs I have had in the many American theme restaurants I have tried at Sunway).
We wanted to order pasta from the children's menu (kids dine free for every mains ordered) but they didn't have any with white sauce so the kids shared a scampi linguini. They liked it and I found it delicious as well. They also had the fish and chips from the kids menu - regular fish and chips. I like the chips here as they give large cut potato rather than the shoe string stuff we get at McDonalds. However, fries came with most of the orders ... it would have been nice to be able to choose a different side dish or have the potatoes done in a different way.
We were too full to do deserts for everyone so we shared an Alabama mud pie and a Key Lime Pie ...I would come back just for the latter!
All in all it was a good dining experience. The staff sang to my niece and gave us a complimentary ice cream confection which was wonderful but we were just too stuffed to finish it. A lot of the items on the menu are spicy so maybe this wasn't the best choice for children. They also need to just have simple juices for drinks.
Repeat items : Bucket of Boat Trash, Baby Back Ribs and Key Lime Pie. A tip if you want to be seated in the non-smoking section ... ask to be seated farther back to be away from the smoke,
