“Great Fresh Seafood”
Reviewed August 8, 2013

Like most places nearby, it looks simple enough a good place to relax after a great day diving one of the nearby islands such as Mabul and Sipadan. It is not the cheapest place for a quick bite but that is not what we wanted to find anyway. There is a great selection of local seafood which you can select from, live and then choose a preparation method. We had a grouper steamed with lemon and garlic and wow it was great! Some banded shrimp prepared by the chef were also great. My brother and I happen to meet the owner and were able to say thanks for a great meal! Will be back there soon.

Hi David,

It is always a pleasure serving you and your brother, Ben. Guests like the both of you are what make us delighted and proud to be operating the restaurant here in Semporna.

We see this restaurant not only as a place to provide relish and satisfication to everyone's palate, but most importantly, as a social meeting place where all divers and holiday-goers around the globe can gather here to chill and meet new friends whilst sharing their stories, jokes and laughters.

That is also the main reason why my two partners and I decided to set up this restaurant anyway, as the three of us being certified scuba divers just simply love knowing other diver friends from all walk of life!

It was also a coincidence that we signed up with the same dive operator, Big John Scuba for the day trip diving in Kapalai and Mabul. We were even lucky enough to spot a eagle ray during our first dive in Black Ray Channel of Kapalai Resort. In fact, that was only the second time i spotted these magnificent creatures after 5 years of diving around in and around Kapalai.

I do hope that I will be seeing you and Ben soon for our next dive trip and possibly in Sipadan, so you guys better plan your dive trip here again soon!

Please send my regards to Ben and my staff at Ocean Treasure will like to say a big thanks to the both of you.

“Delicious seafood”
Reviewed July 13, 2013

We were taken to this wonderful restaurant overlooking the sea by my kind scuba diving instructor. He suggested we try the corn soup, butter prawns, sweet and sour fish and a side portion of vegetables. We couldn´t believe how big the portions were and so delicious. The seafood was incredibly tasty. I would highly recommend this restaurant. It is a must when in Semporna. ,

“Overpriced for simple items”
Reviewed June 21, 2013

We weren't looking for anything fancy so I decided to have a tom yam mee soup and my friend had a mee goreng seafood. After ordering we waited 30 min and still had no food despite the fact that tables who had arrived after us had theirs. I spoke to the girl behind the counter who made it quite obvious we'd been forgotten. Food arrived 15 min later and was ok, nothing special and certainly not worth the 45 min wait. I was quite shocked when I got the bill and found out that my tom yam mee soup cost RM10 whereas I've never paid over RM7 for this dish elsewhere - small amounts I know but as a budget traveller every little counts :) ! Had a look at the fish in the tanks and they looked decidedly unhealthy, if I'd had more money I'd have bought them and set them free!!
