Description: In the year 1988, we first opened doors as Jaws Seafood Restaurant located on the 4th Floor of Gaya Centre. We served a fusion of Thai/Chinese Seafood Cuisine as well as Dim Sum. The restaurant also hosted banquet events up to 45 tables on a regular basis and soon earned a reputation purely by word of mouth. In 1997, we had a Vision to provide every Dear Guest with our slogan "Where very meal is an Experience". We decided to relocate and rebrand to something BIGGER and BETTER. Every aspect was painstakingly thought of from the Minangkabau -style architecture 'floating' on the lake in a botanical park, the 'floating' performance stage, the naming of the buildings, and to the menu creation. Hence the birth of Kampung Nelayan Floating Seafood Market Restaurant. Currently, we are the ONLY restaurant in Kota Kinabalu to present a NIGHTLY Cultural Dance Performance from 7.45Pm to 8.45Pm showcasing the Largest Indigenous Ethnic Groups in Sabah. Guests are encouraged to get up on stage to participate in some of the dances. We have also achieved a reputation of being one of the Most Unique Dining Experiences in Kota Kinabalu.

Good Day all!

Kampung Nelayan serves the best seafood in KK! :) Hands down.

With their shows during dinner. Come during weekends as it has different show during the week days!

Pricing wise: One of the highest in Sabah BUT! WAY CHEAPER THAN KLANG, LALA CHONG, AND KUALA SELANGOR! hah! what else do you want man!

Its considered CHEAP! and very affordable.

Their service is superb! 5 stars for that. Very friendly. :) Their lobster is HUMONGOUS!! RM42 per 100g (seasonal i think)

Must visit and eat when youre in KK! :)

Cheers!

Away from the busy traffic jam of Kota Kinabalu waterfront where the usual seafood restaurants are located. Ample parking lots with huge dining areas. Fresh sea foods with compatible prizes. Fast service and there is a cultural show which is rather interesting to watch. Only the fish is not that great but the rests are ok. The place is less touristy and you can see locals eating there.
