Food was delicious, however the toilets where not clean and bring your own loo paper. I always wonder about the health and sanitation of a kitchen when the toilets are not clean.

the place is nice on the sea and the food is OK. Prices are expensive (high prices of Singapore) but this is one of the best offer of Nirwana hotels chain.

If you want to experience the worst service in Indonesia, come to Kalang Seafood Restaurant. After serving the main dishes we had to wait for 25 minutes for steamed rice. I've never had an asian restaurant running out of rice. Repeatedly asking for our rice did not help because apparently it had to be cooked first. After 25 minutes we... More

Ordinary food that was expensive. Lovely atmosphere and sits right over the water. Loved the banana boat trip to get there.

We were greeted by friendly staffs upon arrival and was given a table just next to the sea. Nice view as we managed to enjoy the sunset. We ordered up to 6 dishes.A bit pricey but the servings are generous. I would recommend this place as it is a romantic and must go place in Bintan. Definitely must go.

Thank Hady21

Built on stilts just above the sea, a unique blend of Chinese and Indonesian culinary style. The only place to go in Bintan which has the richest and freshest seafood while offering panoramic view of South China Sea. Open daily for lunch and dinner from 11:00 AM - 10:30 PM.
