We decided to take our dinner here. A package with 3 viands and rice was available at a discounted price. We also ordered a dessert. The food included vegetable, fish fillet and shrimp.

This place is full with fresh seafood. A little bit smelly and dirty. You have to bargain for a good deal.

We very much enjoyed having dinner here while staying in KK. If you love fresh grilled seafood at cheap prices, this is the place. It is the primary experience that I will remember from our trip here to Sabah.
