This restaurant is at the end of the strip so could be missed. It is not fancy at all but very friendly. They served a fantastic Nasi Campur with a lot of fish choice. The owner described each dish for us. Very inexpensive and great food!

Recommended and was brought here by a friend. The cleanliness was poor, the taste and food spread was nothing special, in fact, nothing to look forward to once arrived there. food price is ridiculously expensive. Wont come again...ever.

This was recommended by our taxi driver. We ordered Malaysian staples such as laksa, kway teoh and chicken rice and were not disappointed.

As a matter of fact, i'm sitting right inside tis restaurant right now. The fact tat tis restaurant sits really front of the lgkawi underwater world doesnt justify the expensiveness of its foods..i only took a small piece of chicken & a little portion of beansprouts & half plate of rice cost me nearly rm8!!! The food was not really... More

Came across this kampong by accident - had read about it but only after I had eaten here did i realise it was the restaurant that I had read about on Trip Advisor. Was attracted by the large array of foods on offer and the grilling of fresh squid at the entrance. This is a self service restaurant...take rice and... More

Went here for lunch just after arrival. Got myself a plate of rice with 4 small squids and 2 thumbsize prawn for 35 ringgit. The owner claimed it was tiger prawn, but still it is way too pricey for a small tiger prawn like that. Somehow feel that the owner is not being honest. Try at your own risk.

We came across Harum Aroma while scootering around. A staff was grilling fresh seafood near the entrance so the smell was enticing enough to make us stop by. Food is self service. There is a long table with all the cooked dishes. You have to take your own rice and your own selection of dishes. The grilled seafood is rm15... More

The food here is just fantastic for sea food lover, it has variety that is pleasing to the eye and palate and very cheap, seating and rest of the facility is very basic, located opposite to the main duty free shops on Jl Pantai Cenang. Unfortunately they are not open all days, we could eat there only once in a... More

We've been to Langkawi 3 times, having just returned from our most recent trip. Each time we've eaten here, I love it. I have to be very careful where I eat when I'm in South-East Asia as I have a severe peanut allergy. The staff here are really helpful and will point out what I can and can't eat, luckily... More

this is a very good place to get a real local food fix. especially grilled fish and seafood, served with a nice 'air assam' condiment. their trick is to put a huge fan next to the grill that sends out the nice smell of grilled fish onto the main street, thats how i found this place! btw the restaurant name...
