The restaurant is built over the sea area and during high tide, you can smell the sea from your table. Seafood is very fresh and wonderfully prepared. We had a great and memorable dinner with friends from Sandakan. Will surely come back to this restaurant...More

Had brunch at Sim Sim for 9 pax. Good seafood with reasonable pricing. The restaurant is located above the sea, facing Pulau Berhala - a nice view while eating.
