Had a very good dinner here, arrived too late for the sunset unfortunately. Nice hosts and fairly quick service, there weren't many other diners due to low season. Ordered mango chicken, steamed ginger and lemon fish, white pepper crab, accompanied by sawi vegetable dish. All dishes were delicious, drinks were apple/asam boi juice, and we were permitted to bring and drink our own wine. Glasses and ice bucket graciously provided and no corkage.
I recommend this restaurant as certainly one of the best seafood restaurants in Langkawi in a nice setting, reasonably priced considering the quality of the dinner.

This is the first time we ate in this restaurant. I would say, the food was good but pricey, maybe because of Chinese New Year, all prices went up.

We ordered Steamed Fish, Tauhu Soup with Fish Maw & Steamed Prawn. All tasted delicious & fresh.

We don't mind coming here again when we visit Langkawi in the future.

Intrigued by the boat on the roof of this restaurant which takes your eye from the road side, only to find a fairly ok place to stop for lunch.
Chinese through and through and had an enormous plate of fried rice with seafood, ordered small portion as in menu but only medium available... for a few more ringgit we were then informed- umm naughty eh?! work that one out - so we obviously 'Fed locals -As well'
It was ok as Fried rice goes- but the walk along the Beach alongside was worth the lunch stop- it was glorious! No one but us the waves and fabulous granitic rock pools
Heaven un spoilt!

We had a really bad experience at this restaurant, I'm afraid to say. The food was overpriced and very bad. The worst meal by far of a 3 week trip around Malaysia, and also one of the most expensive. We should have stayed at our hotel The Andaman for another meal, as we would have paid the same (perhaps less) and the food was always nice there.

My boyfriend ordered Chicken Satay for a starter - when it arrived she told us 'sorry no satay' so it was just chicken with chilli sauce! For main I had a groupa fish in a curry sauce - the sauce was terrible and the fish was overpriced.

The worst part was my boyfriends main course - Mango Chicken. We are not fussy eaters but it was disgusting. We also ordered a vegetable fried rice, and this was not edible. How can you go wrong with fried rice?!

The lady who works there is pleasant, but the service is very bad. It took us a good 20 minutes from sitting down to even be offered a drink. We also got our staters, mains & sides all at the same time - so don't even bother ordering a starter as it's too much food to receive all at once, and costs you double.

There are bugs everywhere - constantly flying in to your head. I could ignore that if the food was good, but it was honestly terrible.
