This airy chinese reaurant, adjacent to the seafront, in the new mall, opposite the Seafest hotel, offers good and fast Chinese meals and beer.

Very Good experience dining here, Tried a variety of seafood here but the Tiger Shrimp stood out as the most delicious so far in my travels. Efficient service, fast preparation of meals even in a busy environment, and I thoroughly enjoyed the atmosphere and the...location on the waterfront here. Should I venture to Semporna again I will definitely re visit your establishment.More

Their seafoods are too overpriced. The taste is just so-so. Only the seaview is good. Believe me, there are a lot of other seafood restaurants that u can try and compare.

They delievered wrong food but claimed it being the right one... speed is very slow so would not recommend if you are staving. Food taste is good and fresh. Price is a bit higher than around.

Food is acceptable. Fish is fresh. A bit overprice. Be careful when make payment. Must check the bills before pay and check the price before ordering.

We have been here for dinner. The food was great and tasty. You can choose the exact fish you want to have prepared. As well you can choose the type of preparation, all side dishes etc as well. So simply you can create your very...own seafood dish as you would like to have it. Would eat here for sure again!More

We got to this restaurant from the market side and were so hungry we didn't bother to walk the whole street as we would have probably chosen one of the other similar restaurant that looked cleaner. Nevertheless the food was good and the price was...not high. The guy who served us was very nice and spoke English. While we were there some kids hid behind the table and begged us for money making signs they were hungry. They had no clothes on and were very dirty. I gave them a little money and the restaurant lady came to shoo them away.More

The food here is great, just as the other places in the same road next to the water. You can actually sit, eat, and watch the fishermen come by a couple of times with their boats at night with their catches. I would recommend their...crab (all styles tastes great, but the one with salted egg is the best!). Take small portions and share. As I mentioned in the caption, this is not a cozy place. But there is no cozy places in Semporna, at least I have not seen one. Go for the food and the company, and forget about the rest!More

Went to this place as recommended by TA but during dinner time that place is so quiet and without a soul. The tank for the fresh seafood is also not appealing and we ended up a few stall next to them for seafood instead ....Am wondering if they are still focusing on the seafood business or have already change ownerMore

This is a restaurant that does not cook pork. You could buy your own seafood and bring it to this restaurant and it would cook it for you for a price. I found the charges reasonable. You would want to consider this option of buying...the food yourself as you would sometimes meet fishermen by the roadside of Semporna who would try to hawk their small catch to you. You could examine the freshness of the catch yourself. In our group of 10, we bought eight different types of fish and squid. The charges were about RM124 with added three plates of vegetables, fried rice and drinks.More

A fellow diver introduced this restaurant to me and raved about the Mango Chicken. I ordered it and I could eat it all day. It's very different to the type I've had back home (Brunei) but their variation to the dish gives such an amazing...taste! The boss man is really helpful, speaks good English and even though the staffs forgot some of our order, the boss makes sure no more problems after that. We weren't in a rush so the forgetfulness of the staffs didn't bother us much plus we all got what we ordered in the end. Reasonably priced for the amount of portion they give. Would recommend to come here for the mango chicken.More
