I am always weary of hyped up seafood restaurants, but this was a good experience. A staff member walked us through all of the options and prices of the various seafood on offer. We settled on two crabs and a snapper. The staff member weighed it and calculated the price for us before sitting down at the table. The food... More

We visited this evening. We got a cab there and he also collected us as it is a little out of town. It's a quirky place as on a kampon and has some interesting concrete statues and flashing lights. Staff very helpful. No menu only pictures but our waiter spoke good English and explained the dishes. We had some spicey... More

Our tour guide recommended that we visit here and we were not dissapointed. Our waiter reccomended what he thought we should eat and he made some great reccomendations. Very tasty dishes and sides. Serves beer which was nice for a change. Not super cheap but much cheaper than at home. And more flavoursome. If you need a taxi, ask them... More

The Good: lot of choices, fresh seafood The Bad: cutlery not properly clean, long waiting time (45 min), long interval between dish (15min), food is too salty for my liking, chunk of paper found in my soup (OMG), table arrangement are too close for comfort All in all, I would suggest just go next door Sim Sim Seafood Restaurant

Horrible experience. Was recommended by friends to come here for seafood dining, but the expectations were heavily crushed by the actual dining experience. Had bad luck of dining on a rainy night as the roofs were leaking. The dishes taste OK and seafood quality is average, definitely not the best in Sandakan. Dishes were only served after more than an... More

My first impression was taken aback by the fancy lighting decoration and its location on the floating houses. We had our first meal here after alighted from our flight. The atmosphere was superb and the captain was patient and helpful depsite it was a full house on that night. It took pretty long for the foods to be served but... More

This would have to be the best Seafood i have had anywhere. The only reason I am down grading it is because the lady behind the till would not allow me to use the western toilet which was reserved for staff. The decor is very casual with dirty glass mugs and torn tables. In fact everything looked tired and worn.... More
