We ate three times at Uncle Lims and every time the food and service was excellent. Probably the best Chinese food I had ever eaten.

This is probably one of the more expensive restaurants, but rightly so. The food is amazing. It's more Chinese style, but I'm American and I was happy with my meal. My favorite was the mango pudding dessert. This restaurant knows how to pick its mangoes.

We went to Uncle Lim only once due to our 4 nights stay but the fish was absolutely great. Also the chicken was very nice and the setting is wonderful as well. As it is a restaurant in a 5 star resort we found prices reasonable and would definitely recommend this Restaurant.

There are so many better options. This was my least favorite restaurant. I recommend instead Fisherman's Cove!

We were lucky to been able to get a table here on a busy night. Staff were friendly and attentive. Food was excellent! The chef (Uncle Lim) creates authentic chinese cuisine. Loved the steamed fish! A definite place to dine if you are in Pangkor Laut!

We ate here twice during our stay in Pangkor Laut. The first experience was really not good. We were shown to a table and told by the waiter that there were large groups booked so we should order quickly. The order was taken within two mins whilst he stood over our table waiting for us to choose. Our two course... More

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
