Expectation were high but ended with disappointment. The fish were not fresh with a funny smell. The fried rice that we ordered were not the one served. Other food were normal.

Only stopped here for a refreshment break, was so hot and just returned from jungle walk so needed something that was cool tasty and refreshing, the lady that worked there suggested a mango and passion fruit smoothie, and what can I say it was delicious. Really tasty and huge.

Food was excellent. Service was great. Prices were extremely reasonable. Went to End of the World Restaurant a day earlier but was shocked by a huge bill. Not going there ever again.

The food is still as good as the day we first went there many many years ago A must try is their lobster Thermidor followed with the two types of fried calamari and black pepper calamari. The butter fish is also yummy. Two styles of prawns one plain steamed or the other with salted eggs with prawns are not bad.... More

Those 'in the know' seek out this special place off the beaten track in the fishing village of Teluk Bahang in Penang's northwest corner. Having dined here many times over the past few years, I can promise you -- Fishing Village Seafood is consistently great. Prawn fried rice, sweet and sour chicken or prawns, butter garlic fish fillets, kangkong morning... More

Recommended by friend staying in Penang. Food was tasty and fresh. Highlight for me was the oysters done 4 ways, and two stood out the cheese and the black bean sauce! Fried ice cream and mango pudding available for dessert. Main issue will be transportation...took a grabcar and got stuck in public holiday traffic at Batu ferringhi. Also driver highlighted,...

Though there is no beatiful seaview while dining. I would say this is the best Seafood Restaurant in Teluk Bahang or Batu Ferringhi area, We never miss this Restaurant whenever staying in Batu Ferringhi Hotel.

Fishing Village Seafood is at the extreme opposite end of Penang Island to the Airport. It took a very windy 54 minutes by Uber along the back roads of Balik Pulau to get there from Bayan Lepas Airport. If you're not good in cars over meandering roads i dont suggest this route. As for the restaurant, its so so with... More

It's not a great restaurant, no there are no locals here, mostly chinese tourists. The food is ok, fried rice is actually quite good, if underseasoned. White shell prawns were both unfresh and treated with formaline. I am quite sensible to it, which is the reason why I don't try seafood more than 50km from the sea. The restaurant is... More

Despite poor reviews noted from some travelers of Tripadvisor, we went and tried the restaurant. Honestly, the staff quality can be further improved. We really enjoyed the food. We loved the salty fried squid. We did not order the crabs since it was quite pricey. The food portion is reasonable size. They serve seafood, mainly Tiger Prawns, "Ming" prawns and... More
