We tried this place based on TA reviews. Unfortunately we did't have such great experience for us it was average. Food was okay, but not fantastic. I had lobster and I had eaten better lobster in Phuket.

We have been coming here for many years now, and have always been extremely happy with the food and service. There is a large selection of fresh seafood, as well as many other dishes, both Thai cuisine and western food. They always have great suggestions for those who are undecided.

We picked a 500 gram fresh squid from the ice-chest, and asked for it to be cut up, battered (tempura-style) and deep fried. Tasty, freshly-prepared, not at... More

Well worth a visit! Mr Kwong is larger than life, the seafood is fresh and you choose your own and pay by weight. Off the main drag a bit but it was busy the night we were there. Great value for money!

Had the tiger prawns in garlic and black pepper sauce. I can honestly say this is one of the best prawn dishes I have ever eaten. I highly recommend this restaurant and their seafood. Everything was fresh and delicious.
