Been here with my family and ordered 5 dishes. Only 1 is worth mentioning Hock Chew styled fish fillet. The others are just either average or below average. Plus the price are definitely not worth it. I know the other reviews are saying good things but trust me, your money are better spent elsewhere. Service are fast and the staff... More

Of the 5 or so restaurants on Pangkor Laut, this was by far my favourite. None of the restaurants are what you could call cheap, but I felt this was the best value - and the tastiest with a really nice, unfussy and relaxed atmosphere overlooking the water. I could eat the calamansi chicken every week - do pay some... More

Great Chinese food, a good selection of entrees and mains. Not a place for a quiet romantic dinner for two but still very good.

delicious, fresh and the perfect portion. Open air and adjacent to the ocean. Staff are pleasant and knowledgable. Book early as it is quite busy.

Only Asian food but they will assist in helping with whatever you want if they can. Definitely have to experience it while you are here.

Fresh seafood and good to have tried the Hock Chiew cuisine. Super tasting fish maw soup. Loved the use of local Malaysian ingredients. A good walk from our sea villa. Good choice for dinner and remember to book ahead. It got busy both nights. Well worth a visit.

Set amidst large boulders by the cliff, offering 180 degrees panoramic view of the sea, this lovely restaurant deserves the highest recognition for its service excellence and superior menu offerings. Authentic Chinese cuisine, ala traditional Malay - Peranakan fusion, this restaurant has an extensive menu selection to satisfy even the fussiest palates. To enjoy the freshest seafood, go for their... More
