“Good Food”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 20, 2014

We had one of our dinners here. We ordered the vegetables cooked with scallops in XO sauce, steamed sea-bass and Tiger prawns. They were very fresh. Taste was also well-balanced. The location of the restaurant was quite unique. It was built on rocks by the beach and they kept the rock formation as part of the restaurant interior.

“More than just yummy!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 5, 2014

Uncle Lim's Kitchen is named under Uncle Lim-Pangkor Laut Resort's first employee on the island. He can still be seen occasionally at the back kitchen, supervising the eatery. I was told he still rows to Pangkor Main Island to get fresh supplies and to choose fresh sea products to bring back to the kitchen, which very much explains the scrumptiousness of the dishes! Staffs at the restaurant were more than friendly. On a simple joke, they even brought us desserts and fresh fruits after the meal!

The location of this restaurant is extraordinary too. It is build on top of a large rock (something like a small cliff), and its covered by a huge olden Chinese-umbrella, which adds to the unique ambience like no other ordinary Chinese restaurants. In addition, it is very near to the sea villas, with a link bridge connecting to it right above the waters, so patrons can take an easy stroll from the restaurant back to their villas after their luscious meals.

“Very nice place”

The food was good. The ambiance and decor were wonderful, lots of beautiful wood, and as with all restaurants at Pangkor Laut, open to the outdoors. The service was great.
