I heard about the famous Sim Sim Seafood restaurant, That is one of my reasons to visit Sandakan.
I was confident that a famous place every local know. But to my shock most people do not know the exact location. After asking a number of people, they only tell me the general location. I drove to the location 2 times and only got a rough idea where it is. The restaurant do not have any signboard outside the road. No proper parking.Anyway, I decided to bring my family for dinner. I went there around 730pm, the suppose location was dark , no lighted walkway, no parking. I heard you need to walk into the water village to reach the restaurant.
The place look unsafe, so i decided to skip the dinner.
I am glad I did that. Next morning I went to the general market to do shopping for local salted fish. The owner of the stall told me, it is not advisable to go there at night for dinner , not safe, many car owner lost their Car and valuable in the Car while dinning there. I hope the info is not true. but better be safe than sorry.
I hope the restaurant owner will put up some lighting,signage at road side and maybe station a staff to look after customer car. At least give customer some sort of security to enjoy the great seafood that some many people review.
If i ever get back to Sandakan,I will definitely go there for lunch only.
Can not rate the food & services, coz did not make it there, only outside the water village entrance
