Check this place for a nice bite to eat. Food was basic but really enjoyable. Watching a killer of a sunset washing it down with a few beers. It doesn't get any better.

If you want to eat delicious dumplings this is the place. You can eat shrimp dumpling with sweet sauce. Nice place...

Had dinner with the kids here on our first night in Sandakan. Is the first restaurant on the strip along the water closest to the Sheraton four points. Meals all served with rice and soup. Quick service, good value.

Had dinner here twice. Foods taste averagely. Although no much choice in their menu as everything already comes in a set but we still dine here for the second time due to their friendly servers and location. This is the first restaurant in the row so has first advantage to attract diners who are looking for a place to eat.... More

Went there 2 times. Good place to relax after the tours. You meet many people there from other countries. Nice place to share your stories. The food is good. Waterfront location. Sea breeze is so soothing after a tiring day of tours.Service is fast and the waitress are friendly. Price is reasonable.

We had dinner here one night. The good points were the cheap beer and lovely service but the food wasn't great. Don't get me wrong it was fine and cheap so we didn't go hungry but we had better food for the same price in other cafés nearby. Have dinner elsewhere and come here after for a cheap beer!

This place has a nice vibe. Excellent menu has both local specialties and western food. Very popular also among the locals and can get quite busy at the weekends. Food was fabulous and very reasonably priced. Marvelous staff. Free WI-FI
