Came twice in a row for their simple but awesome seafood. Tiger grouper were fresh and steamed just right with light soy sauce. Salted egg calamari and salad prawns were absolutely delicious too. Affordable and conveniently located, this fuss free seafood place is a local gem. Open early as well prior to usual dinner hours. Pork free.

After walking around the night hawkers stalls around Kudat we decided to stop by Kam Ling. What a good decision. Excellent fresh seafood, good attention, cold bear, affordable prices. The oysters were the highlight.

Probably 3rd visit of the 4 trips to tawau. Always fresh seafood and good prices. Good fruit juices available too. Lots of powerful fans so we were not hot and flustered during the meal. Close to the fruit market so you can adjourn to have some fruits (durian, rambutan) after a hearty meal. Staff are friendly and helpful. The lobsters... More

I was told this was the best seafood in Tawau and Sabah but I did not think so. It was good but not the best. The service is fast and they serve beer.

Nice seafood here and drinks and dessert. Most recommend dessert is taufu fah, not that sweet. Their abc also nice. Price may average high, but it's all worth it.

The location is walking distance to MB hotel, and worth the taxi fare from further hotels. The seafood is very fresh and they know how best to prepare them. Flavourful, filling and reasonable priced. The seating area is spacious and the staff were helpful.
