Went to this restaurant twice during our stay on langkawi. If it is not because the restaurant did not open on Mondays, we would have gone 3 times. The seafood there is really fresh. We had steamed red snapper, or seabass, in ginger and soy...sauce or in Teow chew sauce. The tiger shrimp is the best, either grilled or sautéed in garlic sauce. The oyster omelet was also excellent. The clam and squid are OK. The price is really cheap. Excellent value. By Malaysia standard, it is really really good. By langkawi standard, it is the best. The owner (Michael) was very friendly. This is a very popular restaurant, both among local people and tourists. There were long waiting lines on all the days we were there. We went at 6 PM on the first day but then were able to reserve a table for the next visit.
The surrounding is quiessential Malaysia--meaning no ambience. The tables are all outside and next to a stinky river full of garbage. But the utensils used are clean, and ingredients are fresh. It is a family operation, and they work really hard.
I wish there was another restaurant like this in Langkawi. Unfortunately this is the only one.More
