“Thai / malaysian and western food”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 14, 2013

We had thai fish and thai Squid. The vegetables and sauce for both "Thai" dishes were the same. These were OK only a bit spicy. So if you do not like spicy you better indicate well before (I asked if it was spicy and they told me it was not ...). Both Squid and Fish were fried, this is not well indicated on the menu.
Our children took a hamburger with a limited number of fries.
As drinks we took a fresh lime and orange juice which were ok (no addition of sugar or sirops could be notices), tasted very natural and fresh.
We arrived at the moment that only two tables were occupied and had to wait maybe a bit longer than should be, but still acceptables. After our arrival the restaurant filled up completely and service had problems to follow (taking orders and delivering food). Some customers were not happy about this situation.
We paid in total around 65 RM (three main dishes + four drinks).

“A Happy Place”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 3, 2013

A friendly cafe with an excellent varied menu. I especially liked their fish and chips! A strange choice maybe for such an exotic island.

“Cheap and cheerful”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 1, 2013

Good cheap grub (fish and chips, fried mee plus veg), friendly lady host and IMHO, the best of the three cafes which are in a row. Very popular with the local expat community. It is a pity the cafe is so near the rather noisy main road. They will need to buy some new furniture before long.
