Private room was old and the whole place felt so rustic but overall cheaper than compared to Singapore seafood. Seafood was fresh and we found the price per head to be reasonable.

We were going to the Bali Hai, but our taxi driver told us that this restaurant was cheaper and better. Shouldn't have listened. Food was so so, service was fine, location so interesting. Looking out onto the Malaccan Straits.
