“Don't waste your money”

We spent several nights in Penang and we saw this restaurant which was highly advertised. It looked impressive, there were tanks of fish outside with prices (although it was virtually impossible to relate this to your actual order!)
We decided to go in one night due to how impressive it looked. Sadly we were very disappointed. The food was nothing better than ok, the service terrible and we paid more than double than we paid anywhere else in Penang.
Stay well away and don't waste your money. There are so many far better restaurants at a fraction of the cost literally across the road.

We had red-peppered crab and grilled prawns. Excellent. Live entertainment includes traditional costumed dancers and singers.

Great concept - choose your fish/seafood and pay for it at 'market price' and then they cook it to your liking for free. Unfortunately, if you are not careful, 'market price' is about £60 for a lobster! lovely food, but just walk 100 yards on and go to Long Beach Hawkers Market.

Tourist focused, very expensive, and staff unhelpful. Much better restaurants around, although being right on the beach it would be a nice place to order a drink and watch the sunset.

location is the only thing worthy visiting this restaurant, in addition to Aquariums that will make you astonished of how many fish kinds you see for the first time in your life. The rest is average or even below your expectations in terms of service and cleanliness.
