Service was terrible. But worse, they added 15% on top of the bill at the end. 5% for the service (what service?) and 10% VAT... We won't be going back there.

Have breakfast and dinner here while staying in the hotel. Breakfast choice are limited but fresh if you have it early. there no topping up of food, so quality of food drop if you have it later. Dinner - food quality and taste is normal. Good for malay traveller as there no much malay food available in Vung Tau.

Had breakfast here and dinner once. They have good options but since I am a veggie, my choice was limited.

I had nasi lemak - the best ever. This restaurant is a Malaysian halal one and the service and food are exceptional.

Cuisine is a mix of Chinese, Vietnamese, Malaysian and Western. They have buffet dinners every Saturday at about $10 per adult and kids dine for free. The choices are a bit limited though but the food tastes decent. We loved the grilled scallops, stewed beef, roast chicken and freah fruit salad. They also say that they're food is halal prepared.

It's difficult for my friend to find a halal food stall, but I guess this restaurant can really serve good malaysia food. Try their nasi lemak with nice sambal. They have many variety of other food as well. It's just located in the petrol house hotel. Try it if you like Malaysian food.
