Visit to Sabah is not complete if you do not have a real sea food. We came here during lunch, maybe they yet to replenish their stock, that's why not much choice. Overall its OK, not that pricey.

I been into this restaurant many times and yes they served fresh seafoods with reasonable price. To cut the time of waiting of order it is better for you to make an early foods order by making a table reservation to the management.
