Food was yummy albeit expensive. There was a vegetable patch off the side of the 'restaurant' and we pointed to the vegetables we wanted. We didn't get to try the kampong chicken as it needed to be ordered at least one day ahead. We waited...a long time for the food even though there were only 2 tables of guests. The place is not air conditioned and it is a good idea to put on insect repellent although the owner will light up a mosquito coil when asked. The owner engaged us in Malaysian politics so much that we found it intrusive and overbearing. He also tried to sell us his homemade raw prawn crackers to take home. Although the food was yummy, given the waiting time, mosquitoes and the ambience, I would go elsewhere instead.More

Be ready to wait or pre-book before you go! Very fresh seafood and nicely cook. We enjoyed the food after 1.5 hours wait.

Want to feel like eating at home? Recommended to visit and dine here. Menu very basic, don't expect any menu handouts or menu book. But they dishes are acceptable with reasonable pricing.

Ah Soh is good place for good foods after an afternoon of golf in Damai. If you want straight forward answer, you can ask him anything about people or politic in Malaysia, he can tell you anything. The yam with fish and salt chicken are...his special dish. Pre-booking is required. He can turn away customer if you dont like you or you didnt prebook with him.More

Ah-soh Buntal Seafood is a restaurant that makes you feel you're eating at home. This very simple village wooden house is actually a family home. The small Soh family really lives there. The veranda serves as the dining area for the customers. Food is cooked...in the actual family kitchen. What's unpretentious is that the wife is the only cook and manages the kitchen. Rarely does she have any kitchen helper. The husband, fondly called Ah Kian, does the marketing, taking customers' orders, serving, handling bills and receiving payments. Ah Soh is an affectionate and polite way of addressing Ah Kian, using his surname. If you value personalized service, this is THE place. We're satisfied with every dish we've taken so far. Menu is very basic. Food variety is limited and nothing fanciful. But if you want something out of the ordinary, give the proprietors about two days' notice to source the more expensive food items. Give Ah Kian a call at 082-846450; 082-846071; 0128901202. You can then make special menu requests and book your table. Just a word of caution, Ah Kian can sometimes be too chatty and appear too friendly for some. We always find him entertaining with his endless topics of conversation. He's just naturally spontaneous and genuinely enthusiastic. A couple of times, we saw him actually being told off and scolded by some irritated customers. Ah Kian is always prepared to go out of his way to help and accommodate customers. I would give Ah-soh Buntal Seafood a rating of "excellent" if its menu offers a wider variety of items.More

First things first, the boss here is super chatty and some people might find him arrogant if you meet him for the first time (Yes, he always talks about the ministers that dine in his restaurant). This is a family-run business unlike the nearby Lim...Hock Ann which has been very commercialised. As it is a small business, sometimes they do not have seafood that you may want to have. The place may look a bit run-down but do not fret, it is always a good option to dine here. Besides the seafood, they are also famous for their kampung chicken (you have to pre-order before coming).More
