Don't go during dinner time. The customer service is very poor during peak hour - way down below par. If you must go, do expect to wait long hours and keep your cool (patience!). Overall it's good food with reasonable pricing, which is the reason for the crowd. If you can't wait (or in a rush) better skip it for... More

Delectable food but the service is really dumb , the price is great and for those who's craving for nice seafood is welcome but beware that the waitresses are really rude there.

Been coming to this restaurant everytime I visit Kuantan for the past 10 years. Food have consistently been good and pricing is super reasonable. Standard favourite is the curried sizzling prawns and steamed Patin but generally all the food is good.

The restaurant is rather basic and a bit on the down side hygiene wise. It is popular with locals because of the price and delicious seafood dishes. Service is quick. Queuing is common as it is often full on public holidays and weekends.

The restaurant was full when we reached there at 6.45 pm on a Thursday. We managed to get a place to sit after waiting a short while. It was a noisy joint but clean. We were already starved by the time our food arrived 50 minutes later. The staffs were too busy to show us any customer service...the lady who... More
