“Awesome food but slow service”
Reviewed 1 July 2014

Dined here several times and still had to wait like forever to get food. Of course, the food are awesome - try their lassi (yummy!!!). Price wise - a bit high than the other restaurants on the village area.

“Excellent tasting Malay meals and tasty fresh fruit juices.”
Reviewed 1 July 2014

Mama's is located next to the Ombak Cafe and of course located in between these two restaurants is the path which runs from Coral Bay to Long Beach. Mama's is another restaurant where you will find your typical tourist fare including local Malay style food as well as Chinese options and Western food choices. They also have a nightly BBQ. Beer and rum can be purchased from the sellers set up between with their little orange eskies/cooler boxes and a can of Tiger is MYR8 which you can take back to your table. The meals are cheap and well priced.

“Good food by the beach, friendly staff”
Reviewed 5 April 2014

The food and drinks here are awesome and dining with candle light right on the beach is just great. My wait for my BBQ food was barely half and hour and the friendly server by the name of Cola was really chatty and recommended this Coconut Lassi drink which was really good! Not too bad for food on the island and compared to what my resort was serving, this certainly gives more bang for my buck. Most of the time, its the taste of the food that matters more than the ambience but this place has both!

Look for Cola when you're there and say hi!

“Nice BBQ”
Reviewed 30 August 2013

The food is delicious but they should expand the place to grill as u still have to wait for an hour and a half till the food is ready even when you order the food earlier. Me & my fiancee came in to order early & we bathe at our resort then we came back an hour later still the food is not ready.

The location was very near the beach & it was so fascinating to enjoy the view of the sea on the night from the restaurant. I would say here it was like " little phuket " as the light and surroundings makes u feel like it.

“RM15 for nice bbq”
Reviewed 11 August 2013

Food is pretty good, but took at least 2 hours to get it actually. Sometimes the staff messed up orders and told guests after 2 hours that no more <what they ordered> is left...So well recommended if you're very patient.
Awesome Coconut Shake btw!
