Went there for an evening meal during my night stop over in Lahad Datu. It is a 20 min walk from Bed and Bike BB. The owner spoke excellent English and was very helpful as I am vegan so he helped me order a meal...just as I needed it to be. I had veg fried rice and a small tofu claypot. Both were excellent great taste and good serving serve as well. 22MYR for the meal. Good menu for everyone to choose from and it is close to the airport if you need a meal before a flight. Would recommend.More

We were in Lahad Datu for 1 day and night and we had lunch and dinner at Dovist. The food was very tasteful and the owner spoke fluent English and showed great hospitality. That’s why we decided to return for dinner. Lunch we decided for...ourselves but for dinner the owner asked if he could recommend and we just let him. It was very tasteful and still affordable so we can highly recommend this location. Do not let the neon lights distract you, we’ve come to learn that a cosy atmosphere as seen through European eyes simply is seen differently in SE Asia. It’s the food that matters and no problem to highlight that 😃More

because of our delayed flight, and because this restaurant is pretty close to the airport, we ended up eating at Dovist Restaurant. this turned out to be great! there was no menu, but the waiter advised us what to take. We had a vegetarian dish...with dried fish and lemon chicken. It was very good and I would recommend eating at this place if you are close!More

While waiting to leave for Danum Valley, we ate lunch here. The food was plentiful and the waiter, who spoke English, helped us order what we wanted, as we didn't want a huge meal. We got vegetables, noodles and a little chicken for 24RM. We...were the only foreigners in the restaurant. While eating our lunch, we were entertained by watching a restaurant worker cutting up a durian outside.More

We were there during lunch time. Initially, we chose the restaurant because it was air-con as it was a hot day. Then when the food came, it was good. We like the way it was cooked and it tasted great. There are two menu; a...la carte or ready prepared food menu.More

By the time when we arrived, it was passed lunch time. The restaurant offered us roasted chicken, onion omelette, fried mixed vegetables and fish ball soup. It was good and we ate up everything and left.

We ate here twice while coming and going from Danum Valley, and it was good both times. I think we just did a basic fried rice and chicken dish the first time, but we did the daily special the second time, and there was plenty...and varied food both times. Staff very pleasant and attentive as well.More

Its one of the best restaurants which serves good food in Lahad Datu. Tasty are almost all the dishes. Prices are affordable but the only complain from me it has became a little unhygenic.

One of the famous restaurant in the city, which specializes on Chinese cuisine. Try local crunchy stirred vegetable, tofu and chicken in black broth. Average interior, yet tasty dishes.
