First off the Garlic Butter Shrimp was good. Lots and lots of garlic. Now the bad news. There are many signs posted your food will take a long time to get. We waited 45 minutes, and that was without a crowd. I get that the...More

We had the prawn special and spicy (mild) with rice. We are from Australia and so prawns are much bigger and have more flavour ... nevertheless they were tasty...but only 6 small prawns per serve. For the price it was very expensive. If there is...More

Deep fried fish or 8pcs shrimp with 2 scoops of rice for 15$/ a little bit pricey for me but the freshness is unbeatable since they farm the fish and shrimps on the area

I ended up eating the boiled shrimp. Their other dishes would take 1 hour to get ready. And the place was not crowded at all! Maybe it was because this was 3 days after hurricane lane (that never really did hit north shore) . Boiled...More

Get a daily catch of excellent shrimps at this place. Only go there with a lots of patience because you will probably wait for the delicious food for about an hour. But it is worth it. The staff is very helpful too and the atmosphere...More
