We be the judge. Even though my company is paying the bill I am not going back to place where they... More

Private room was old and the whole place felt so rustic but overall cheaper than compared to Singapore seafood. Seafood was fresh and we found the price per head to be reasonable.

Prime location on the seafront opposite the outdoor food centre in Gurney Drive. Food is exorbitantly priced, taste is average at best and service nothing to shout about. The only thing good is the view at the sea front.

The location was great. It's on the Gurney road, adjacent to the round about near Plaza Gurney, and is by the sea. The view was very nice. It has open area for dining with the cool evening breeze. You can pick fresh seafood directly from the aquarium display. The food tasted good, the service was good too. The price is... More

We were going to the Bali Hai, but our taxi driver told us that this restaurant was cheaper and better. Shouldn't have listened. Food was so so, service was fine, location so interesting. Looking out onto the Malaccan Straits.

Overpriced! Cost is almost double of other seafood restaurants. Nothing special about this place. Food is edible but just too expensive. Google and try some other seafood restaurants around the area and you'll thank yourself for doing so.

This time I took my family for a dinner there where we only had a beer then we left. Upon arrival we realized the place was empty which was strange as... More

This is usually a restaurant patronized by tourists as locals find the prices on the high side. If you can overlook the high prices then go for the mantis prawns with row baked in spicy salt. 5 of these mantis prawns will cost you about RM200! The flower crabs cooked in sweet and sour sauce is another good bet.
