We ordered Fried Rice for 15rm but the condiments is just vegetable no chicken or any extra extra. The food taste is bad. Its okay to put price higher. But the food must be the same level as the price. FRANKLY SAID NOT RECOMMENDED FOR...FOOD HUNTING IN Perhentian BesarMore

Had lunch right on the beach. Calling the cafe a restaurant - or even a cafe - would perhaps be exaggerating it. It’s more like a stall with plastic chairs and tables. But - the food was good, drinks were cold and the view amazing...(as you are right on the beach). Also, waitress was really kind! Recommended!More

Had lunch here for 2 consecutive days. Located by the beach, simple and open setup. Nia Cafe does their fried rice (nasi goreng) and noodles (mee goreng) really well - so much flavour and texture cooked just right for us. The price is slightly higher,...if you’re comparing to the usual local Malay stalls, but the portion & the satisfying taste of their dishes makes up for the price. They have a variety on their menu including western meal options. Definitely worth giving this place a try!More

This place serves good food, really enjoyed their kway teow goreng and iced tea. Their drinks come in huge mugs. It was really nice to be able to enjoy a leisure meal by the beach.

4 different dishes, all tasty. Island food is normally not that exiting, but for the plain malay style food that it primaryly is, Nia delivers. Yummi.

I spent almost a week in Perhentian in March 2019, had several meals at Nia Cafe and enjoyed every single one of them. The maggi soup with squid was the best I've ever had. Note though that they have limited opening hours, they usually close...before sunset. Overall highly recommended!More
