We order a Thai style pineapple fried rice and tomyam seafood...
food quite ok but a bit slow...
Tomyam quite sour but no too spicy...
Fried rice quite oily but taste good.

Trying to catch up late lunch as all of us were hungry and found this restaurant. So we decided to give it a try but regreted. Ordered stirfried squid with salted egg, braised claypot tofu and butter prawn. We waited nearly an hour for our food eventhough there were only 2 tables occupied. The squid was too oily, butter prawn was undercooked and the tofu was tasteless. Asked one of the waiters on the dely and said that there was only 1 chef. Not recommended and it was pricey.

We decided to have lunch here but later regretted it. One of the worst tom yam soup I've ever tasted, all the other dishes were so salty and the rice was hard. The price was expensive. Totally not worth it. The only good thing was the waitress was nice

We ordered about 7-8 dishes including 2 crab (one Chili crab and one Salted egg crab). So apparently I took the last piece of the chili crab and realised that it wasn't fully cooked. Egg from the crab still bright watery red and the mean slightly transparent with the uncooked smell. At first, the waitress said she will refund us that crab price since we didn't not eat it however, the chef came out and DID NOT listen but kept wanting to explain his piece that we should have informed earlier so that we can get a new plate. Then we walked off pissed off and came back with a 5% discount on the crab which is roughly $1plus SGD. So we explained that we had a flight to catch so we do not want a new plate already and as spoken, the waitress said she'll deduct that crab price for us. He was still very persistent he did not want to take that crab cost away because it was already served. Ignorant, unfriendly and rude chef ( I guess he is the manager) left us with a bad mood on our LAST day in Langkawi.

- Waited over an hour before the FIRST dish was served
- Food did not look much less taste appetising
- service pretty poor
- Chef keep saying " you can't get crab at this price in Singapore" THAT IS NOT THE POINT HERE.
- Bad attitude from staff.

Read the many bad reviews here and we still gave it a try as we were trying to find an ideal seafood restaurant to host a dinner for 40 pax in Pantai Cenang.
In June, we had dinner and we encountered the many complaints raised, ie the bad service and the high pricing.
Fortunately, we met the local oyster supplier who happened to be a friend and were introduced to the owner of the restaurant. According to the owner, they experienced high staff turnover recently and were very short handed.
He promised to look at the many complaints raised by customers.
We returned in July and we witnessed major transformation. The place was crowded and more importantly the service was good and the food excellent.
We decided to host the grand dinner for 40 pax at the restaurant inside their aircond room.
We had fresh steamed fish, mantis prawns, crabs, oysters, vegetables and lots more.
The oysters were great, fresh and tasty.
The bill was reasonable for 40 pax and we truly enjoyed the dinner.
Excellent food and great service.
What a transformation.
