Came here whilst stopping in sandakan for one night and having seen reviews on trip advisor. Can't speak highly enough of this dinner, very casual, local restaurant with delicious food. The butter prawns were probably the best prawns I've eaten, and we also had spicy crab and grouper, both of which were cooked to perfection (and straight from a bucket!)... More

This is a place located in the middle of the living area. All the houses are on top of the water. Below there is water that when it is gone then you can see all the dirt below. There are 2 restaurants close by. We have chosen this one as this one looks cleaner?.nicer. The service very nice. Food excellent!... More

We went on a Thursday night, the whole place was packed with noisy dinners, devouring huge plates of fresh fish and seafood. along the circumference of... More

Fresh seafood, taste delicious and price is very reasonable. Came here dinner for two consecutive night. Wet Butter/ Cheesy prawn is a must. Choice might be slightly less compare to sim sim 88 but everything on the menu is so fresh. Will definite come again.

My partner and I came here after being recommended to visit 'Sim Sim' restaurant. Upon arrival at the pier we were faced with infact two restaurant names, Sim Sim 88 to the right and Sim Sim Seafood to the left. This is quite confusing as we were not sure which one to enter! We decided Sim Sim Seafood sounded more... More

We were unsure about trying this 'no frills' restaurant but were not disappointed. The environment is fairly basic but the seafood was great. The only issue for us was that there was no menu. The menu is a series of photos of food on the wall and the waiter did not speak enough English for us to be able to... More

Highly recommended. The steamed fish was fresh and reasonably price. The butter prawn was slightly overcooked but still tasty. Service was excellent.

I can only vouch for the freshness of the seafood..but I can get the same style of cooking at Resipi Mama, Batu 6 with a much pleasant environment. The hygiene, environment and ambience are questionable here.
