I came to this place twice , despite quite high bills I got from here :D I just liked so much their fish and mushroom soup, it tasted so fresh and delicious. And my beer was served like wine in a cooler :D it is a great place for a solo traveller to observe people and enjoy the evening buzz.... More

Good Restaurant but I think they saw us as tourists and jacked up the prices. It was twice as much as Welcome Seafood for the same stuff.

This seafood restaurant is frequented by tourist most of the time as they offer many varieties of fresh/live seafood to choose from. But you need to make sure the person who take down your order do not 'cheat' on the weight i.e. a 1.3 kg fish might be written as 1.5 kg and henve you will end up paying more.... More

Visited few seafood restaurants in my last trip to KK, and Suang Tain is more reasonable in terms of pricing. Although the service is a bit slow, however the nice food compensated.

Nice place to have sea food! It's crowded and not fancy at all, but you can choose fish, shrimp or crab as if you are shopping at local market!

We decided to dine here after reading the reviews. We got there, got a table and ordered our drinks. The waiters asked us to go to the aquariums area to choose our seafood for faster service. When we got there, we were told to wait. We hung around the area for close to 10min and gave up. Nobody is free... More

We weren't sure what to expect but once the food arrived it was excellent. We had the steamed sea bass squid and the signature prawn dish. Had the best salty fish fried rice which actually had salty fish (This dish is always a challenge in North America as they rarely have good or any fish in the dish). Included some... More

We had sting ray, cockles, wet butter prawn and kangkung and (2 big bottles of asahi) for a reasonable price of rm135. If we were in larger group, we would probably get the steam garoupa as well! Lots of interesting people to see (locals and tourists) Excellent place for dinner! Was also exciting to see the seafood in tanks 😅
