Due to its original site being leveled in order to build a hotel this restaurant is now over the road. The manager recognised us from last year and the food, service and environment was good. Summary - For 3 years the restaurant has been consistently good, the change in premises has not altered this.

We walked past the Islandish Seafood Restaurant a few times and we liked the fact they had to fish in tanks and in ice for you to view (and select if you wish). I opted for a squid starter which was good; it was served cold which I was assuming was deliberate. The main course was the star of the... More

Have had several meals here all very good, alcohol is reasonable and no service charge added unless you eat then there is a 10% service charged on total bill.

Had fresh fish: delicious; Tom Yam soup: delicious; Tiger Prawns: delicious; Dessert, Banana split: delicious. Service excellent. Bill sum: No more than anywhere else on Cenang road, actually below mid price for the area. If you want to eat very cheap you have to go outside of the Cenang area. There you can feed your big family for a fraction... More

The food serving was small, most food was just overcooked and dry. Flavour was weird on the main seafood dishes. Everything was very pricey and overpriced to be honest. Would never come back or recommend this place.

Stopped by for a quick snack and my friend was looking for fresh fish. Nothing was good about this place. My snack (tom yum soup) and the fresh fish were horrible. Avoid and save your cash.

Our food takes more than an hour to arrive and the food is not worth that kind of pricing. We have ordered rice for 12 people and it turns out to be only for 4-5 people. The food was absolutely terrible. It was soggy, overseasoned and overall it tasted like dog food. When we ordered extra rice the server didnt... More

Waited more than half an hour for drinks and 2 plus hours for food. Fish was served raw and food was average. Bill came to more than rm1000 for 10 people !! There are many better (and cheaper) restaurants in langkawi

Check your bill and food and mind about 10% service fee. One of mantiss prawn was rotten and stuff refused to change it or exclude from the bill.
