Takes half hour to 45 minutes from city to reach this restaurant which is quite remote & rural. Choices of seafood is quite limited. In one of our visits early last year we ordered steamed fresh prawn but were served non-fresh tasteless prawns (frozen type it seems), among 2 other dishes we ordered. On another visit we ordered fried beehoon... More

This is a very nice seafood restaurant with impressive choice close to Nexus resort. Evening time from 5pm and they take credit cards. The point of my story is different. At that time we were staying at Nexus and regularly traveling to KK. To avoid traffic jam we took early start by Uber taxi to the above mentioned restaurant. We... More

Its a bit pricey but the taste is very good. All the seafood is alive until customer ordered. The environment is clean and the place is well maintained

I come here quite often. I always bring my family. The foods were so delicious. If you come during peak hour (dinner) and its public holiday or school holiday, you need to queue to order and wait for foods to come. It is 'serve no pork' restaurant and no alcohol added to food. But they do served alcohol to drink.... More

Located outskirt from Kota Kinabalu about 30 minutes drive. Big restaurant where you can bring all your family member without worry about tables. The menus also delicious but a little bit expensive if compare with other seafood restaurants in town.

Fun experience to pick you own lobster from the tank. The food was very tasty, but also very expensive, and the service and the atmosphere did not compensate for the price! Glad we tried it, but we had just as amazing seafood at the night market, at a much cheaper price. As we didn’t find the restaurant very charming or... More
