This is a buffet style steamboat. The price per adult is RM30 if i'm not mistaken. A bit hard to find this place if you are not came from Sandakan because this place is up on the hill.

Varieties of food is fine as they have raw seafood, meat and veggies for the steamboat, ready cooked seafood dishes, fried food, noodles, soft drink and ice-cream. Some of the fish balls are too...

This restaurant is secluded at the top of Trig Hill, one of Sandakan's landmarks. Even if you drive there, the road is narrow especially closer to the peak. If you are not comfortable with slope driving, suggest you eat elsewhere. This restaurant does not serve anything special or outstanding that you cannot get from more accessible eateries in other parts... More

It is the fist time I am putting a review on here. The reason being is that the ratings on this restaurant do not reflect its quality. The place was one of the highlights of mine and my parents' visit to Sabah. It is the only place in the world we have seen where for less than $10 you can... More

Simple but fresh fish, meat and noodles which you choose and cook yourself in a cooking pot in the middle of the table. Accompanying salads as well, with fresh fruit and ice cream for dessert all included. Beer very reasonably priced, unlike extortionate Sabah Hotel, and all soft drinks free.
