Food is definitely great! There are more than 1 restaurants, some can be very crowded and you may need to wait for your food awhile, some not many people, but don't think the food is not good, it is great seafood!

Whenever we are in Sandakan, we bound to eat here. Fresh seafood from the morning catch by local fishermen from the nearby islands. Good recommendation, deliciously cook and generous servings. You can buy seafood or dried food from the restaurant to bring home.

Set amongst the filth of the stilt village, this place is a leader in cruelty. They have a turtle in a tank, with its flippers mutilated. We watched them cut off the fins and gut a fish while it was still available, then use the...More

The staff recommended the deep fried squid with salted egg and prawns with cheese. The squid was tasty however the cheese did not go well with the prawns.
