Great Chinese style seafood restaurant. Non halal. Roast Pork, Duck and huge tiger prawns available. Place is not great but decent.

Located on a corner in Kuah, this was an impromptu stop for dinner and a few beers. Staff all very friendly and accommodating, and drinks prices reasonable. Food was very good, especially the steamed fish, but prices a little on the high side for Langkawi. Other than that it was very good, and clearly quite a popular place.

we visited this rootian seafood restaurant accidentally as we are looking for a specific place as our GPS has some issue. we ordered shark fin soup/Large (140RM) and the most amazing dish is the squid with salted egg.. at first we ordered 1 serve/large portion (45RM) but when we tasted it, we knew already that its not enough for us...

We were staying nearby to this restaurant. Went there during dinner time on a Sunday. It was super crowded. They don't want to take our order. We came back the following day at 6.00pm. Since we were the only 2 customers during that time, service was excellent. Our fried rice & sweet sour pork tasted great. Better than the ones... More

Apparently fried rice takes 2 hours. 'Big big girl, in a big big word' on perpetual loop. I think I know what Dante was talking about...

Shocking. Don't even bother. Terrible service. We ordered fried rice and were told it'll take 2 hours, they only had steamed rice. Asked for noodles instead. No noodles either, sorry. We only went there because the night markets were closing and there is nothing else in the area.

Staff was very friendly and helpful. Service was very fast. We chose to sit outside right on the sidewalk. Good view of people walking around the shopping district. They also had inside seating. Food was good. Of the three Chinese seafood restaurants we ate at on Langkawi, this one was in the middle.
