Great location right on the boardwalk KK, perfect place to watch a beautiful sunset. A number of poor reviews about service but all I can say is what we saw. Rizal took care of our table & was cheerful & attentive, he did a great...job. We run a pub so have a critical eye & there's nothing wrong here. I would certainly reccomend. We didn't eat here but the beer price is very reasonable & served cold. What's not to like?More

Dining there with 5 other friends. We had seafood platter, pizza, fried rice and beer. Enjoyed their live band too. A nice place to view sunset. Very friendly staff.

Our Intrepid group went here for our farewell dinner. We ordered drinks and food, which both came in dribs and drabs. Some people had finished before others had received anything. Then it was almost impossible to get the bill and they had charged me for...3 extra drinks. Once they fixed that I noticed that I’d been charged 32 MYR for a mojito rather than the 20 MYR on the menu. They changed this and then proceeded to rip that page out of all the menus! The food was ordinary and over priced and the drinks expensive. Service was non existent even though there were so many staff. Live music was ordinary and way too loud. We were so tired and ended up being there for lots longer than anticipated. AVOID AT ALL COST! Many local restaurants with better and cheaper food and service.More

Stopped here for a beer on the crowded KK boardwalk one evening to pass the time before dinner. Lively atmosphere and ok beer selection. Staff was really friendly, attentive and really made this place enjoyable. Would give it more stars if they had a better...beer selection.More

We came here for a drink after we'd had a fantastic dinner at Kohinoor North Indian restaurant next door. We were seated outside and our party ordered a tower of beer and a mojito and a martini to start. After the beer arrived, my daughter...wanted to go to the washroom and I accompanied her and waited next to the bar as she went to the bathroom. I then observed the bartender making our mojitos and as he handed the drink to the server, the server took a sip with the straw and then put the straw back to the drink!!!!!! He carried the drink out to where our table was. I totally lost it and followed him to our table and told my party to leave. My siblings proceeded to question the server after they'd heard what I observed. The server admitted to what he did and said he wanted to find out how it tasted!!! We left without paying and through the whole ordeal, there was no apologies as if it was a totally "normal practice". We were treated as if we were just some "crazy" "unreasonable" customers!!!! Totally unacceptable!!!! Please beware!!!!More

I never give such a low rating but this place deserves it. We had 2 bad experiences here, we went her en New Years Eve and it wasn’t actually that busy as was any of the water front, we started by ordering 2 beers and...they just never arrived so we walked oot, the staff entice you in but then couldn't care less. I loved the décor of the place so decided to give it another go, we ordered two beers and I ordered the beef and bacon balls and hubby 6 fresh oysters, mine came out and I finished it and we were still waiting on his meal we waited another 5 minutes and nothing so asked the waitress and she said I will go check, again they had forgotten to do the order but said chef will do now wont be long will take about 6-7 minutes to thaw the frozen oysters!!!!! We then asked to see the manager clearly she was not suppose to tell us the oysters were frozen not fresh, the manager had no explanation for why he was selling them as fresh when they weren’t but offer for free, we declined and leftMore

For me personally this is one of the good places in kk town. You have the amazing view of the bay, they have a fair price of Guinness beers (in Malaysia everything with alcohol is expensive! We're here not in Cambodia) As well their food...platters aren't bad at all. Also they have live music...I guess it's depending on the day...I had nights when the band was good and I had nights when the band wasn't.. But with good company it doesn't bother so much... Gives you something to agree on and to nag about.. so it's okay... Also they have shisha available for about 25 RM... Overall I really like this place, it's not too posh and it's not too uncle shop either (for the people who don't understand the term... It means simple Chinese food place with very simplistic and roughed looks) And again... The view is spectacular very peaceful IndeedMore

This is an excellent place to go for a waterfront sunset. Beer prices are reasonabl, and the service is pretty good. It gets busy as the sun goes down, so get in early.
