This restaurant has been my family favourite restaurant in Penang. We are sure to come here for every visit. We ordered 2kgs Crab, 2kgs Prawn and 7coconuts for 9pax. Bill was RM280. Seafood was fresh and tasty. We also ordered fried meehon for 1pax and...cost RM15. Expensive and very small portion. Surprise to see very few customers on weekend. I guess the staffs attitude (and customers review) was indirectly affecting their biz. The main reason we ate here was to VISIT AVATAR of Penang. Really worth visiting. My mom really enjoyed the nite lights. However, they shud install more lights to lite up the stairs area. Old people has visual difficulty. No one collecte entrance fee. Good and enjoyable visit.More

There was a slight drizzle, so we decided to eat here. Wanted to order prawns and other food. But there's this waiter that insisted that only by ordering Crabs then we are allowed to sit. What kind of restaurant insist on what you eat!?? Impossible!...I'd warn my friends not to visit here. Daylight robbery!More

When we want to find place and sit, one waiter keep on asking us to order crab and insisted these tables are for crabs. So we order 3KG of crabs, rm65 for each kg of crabs. The worst part is that these crabs are NOT...FRESH. They cooked it during afternoon and serve us at night. Can you imaging these crabs was cooked and left there for 6 hours more? My wife ate it and feel stomach pain on next day with food poisoning. She must see doctor for injection. Our journey was spoil because of these NOT FRESH crabs. For the char hor fun and mee (for 2 people) costs RM20 each. We ordered 3 mees and it cost me RM60. Is it crazy? We also ordered 2 plate of prawn and these prawn not fresh as well. Guys NEVER NEVER go to this place anymore, you will have food poisoning for order the Crabs because it is NOT FRESH and only cooked in afternoon. Waiter bad attitude, expensive food.More

Went there for a quick dinner and I have been looking forward to their salted prawns that I loved, turn out huge disappointment! Staff: must order at least 1kg crabs and 1kg prawns Me: But I don't want crabs... Staff: sorry no 'prawns only' Me:...what about I order clams? Staff: you just sit lah... No order was taken, because we didn't order crabs. Me: wtf? Service is just horrible. It's sad to see (used to be) friendly local restaurant that I used to like turnout to an errogant restaurant. I will never visit/recommend this place ever again.More

Sand fly all over the places with bugs, we asked and hope for some assistance unfortunately nothing came to help us. So we tried to moved the table ourselves which cause the worker/ boss dissatisfied and move back out table leaving us speechless. We ended...up finish it quickly and leave asap. Such a unpleasant experience. In additional, the crab served is not delicious at all.More

I am a regular at this place and has always brought overseas guests to enjoy the sea view. My favourites are the prawns and clams. However recently they changed the policy that if one doesn’t order crabs, you can’t sit on the outside tables. I...was appalled by this policy as I’ve been there many years and have never ordered crabs as I don’t like bbq crabs! The man’s attitude was nonchalant and rude. So, this will be the last time I’m taking guests there!More

The fresh high quality seafood beats the fancy fare at other seafood joints. Cooked in simple BBQ style with minimal seasoning, the crabs and prawns were fantastic. You can order other side dishes like fried popiah, chicken wings, clams, cockles, satay, noodles etc.

I will say that the service of selling crab's waiter is not really good. But the other stall that sells fried chicken and squids there are perfectly nice. Can have a try on it.

This is the best seafood place we had in Penang. The price is reasonable where Batu Ferringi price is double of it and not as fresh as this place. If you don't eat crab or prawn, this is not the place you should go. Satay...is good and fried noodle is so so. Do call to reserve table otherwise you will need to wait as they have limited tables.More
