We had the grilled prawns (very good, very fresh, but a little greasy) and pak choi (also good and fresh) with steamed rice.

If you want a fairly basic, but good and reasonable place to grab a meal then you can't go far wrong with the Boat

We went to the restaurant in hope of finding a good seafood meal in Langkawi, after reading decent reviews on Tripadvisor. Imagine our utter horror and disappointment when the food was served and we tasted them. We ordered a bowl of seafood tomyum, sambal squid, green curry chicken, and fried prawns. The tomyum was tasteless and didn't taste like tomyum at all. The squid was rubbery and limp. The prawns were average and didn't taste fresh. But the worst part was the green curry. The 'curry' which didn't even taste like curry at all, looked and tasted like a mixture of water and green artificial flavouring, and imagine our disgust and horror when we realised that part of the chicken was UNCOOKED. We called for it to be returned and re-cooked.

Don't ever ever visit this restaurant cause it's the WORST seafood meal I've ever had in my life.

Went around and at last found this restaurant which serving local Chinese food. Located in front of Holiday Villa Hotel. Ordered crab fried with salted egg, steam fish and saute mix vegetable. They cook a great sea food with the taste of Penang. As the owner is also from Penang. But remember to use mosquito repellent. If you having trouble to order. Just get the lady that took order for recommendation. Trust her. Not a bad place for lunch or dinner. They serve delicious food. The price is reasonable.
