Visited for early dinner and flipped through the variety of reasonably set dishes on the menu.

Chose XO chicken and Ginger&Onion beef sets turned out to be satisfactory for the price, but nothing to rave about.

Service was quick, meals cheap and location is scenic.

One amongst many waterfront cafes that offer good local cooking at a fair price. Little to distinguish it from the competition but I enjoyed my meal here in this pleasant waterfront setting and would eat here again.

Near our hostel, this place offered what seemed to be the biggest local variety. The waitress was very friendly, offering us suggestions. We got the honey chicken and a fish dish set. It was plentiful and I left perfectly content. The waitress didn't use a pad to write things down so she forgot a dish, however the set meal was so sufficient I didn't bother to order more.

We had a surly and miserable waitress, very slow service, the food was crap and the whole harbour strip is a complete dump. If you're staying in a half decent hotel in Sandakan then I'd eat there if I were you!

Typical local versions of Malaysian classics. We arrived after the dim sum had sold out but managed to scoff a variety of tasty dishes - all washed down with well-chilled Tiger beer.
