Really good selection of vegetarian food which I've found isn't available in all restaurants and when you consider that most serve the standard curries it's not difficult to chuck a few vegetables in a sauce. The noodles were good and you can pick your preferred spice level in all food which is great

Authentic, delicious, fairly priced, excellent customer service and all with a view to die for. Opted for the green and red curries and were incredibly impressed by the texture and taste of both. If you are after the real deal for local cuisine, head to this place.

The seafood at the front of Black Pearl appeared to be fresher than neighbouring restaurants so we decided to give it a go. We ordered a barbecued fish and garlic pepper squid. The flavours in the squid were slightly unbalanced and the fish could have been cooked better. However, still a decent meal. Due to the language barrier there was... More

A nice restaurant in Saladan specializing in fish, where you can point out your own fresh fish from the counter. The best fish restaurant we found during our stay.
