“Not a place for people with ghout.”
Reviewed July 15, 2012

Nice selections of fresh fish, sea shells, crabs , prawns, lobsters etc. U can view them swimming in their tanks and choose which one U wish to be cooked. Very delicious and cheap too.

The restaurant is located about 15 min drive from Sandakan town center.

“Sea food restaurant 5 min out”
Reviewed July 11, 2012

We went here on the advise of a local , it was a popular place and held alot of people which is always a good sign but watch out for the pushy head waitress who actually trys to force you to order the absolute second the menu is in your hand !!! We watched her do it all night to every table quite entertaining in the end lol. The other staff were all absolutely great and had great customer service skills pity they have to concede to her though.The food was fine and the price as its touristy is a little more expensive but a nice night out, also one of the very few restaurants that actually stocked chardonnay.
