We visited Legoland for a few days and decided to venture off the resort to try a few local meals. We found this restaurant by searching online. No fuss, no hassle restaurant but the food itself was absolutely delicious. My family and I do not speak Bahasa Malay but there was a worker there who came over and explained the whole process in English. We were really pleased with our meal as well as the service.

The restaurant itself was a bit of a distance but it was worth the drive. For visitors to the area who wishes to eat there, please ensure that you have a ride planned to get there and back. We took a Grabcar to the restaurant but had to wait over an hour to get a ride back to Legoland Hotel!

My family always hunt for seafood places like this. Found this place via Google, and just had to try it out. It's quite a drive, but it's worth it. Secluded area, where the fishermen's bring back fresh catches of the day. It's located at the edge of the estuary (muara), floating on the waters. You can have a view of the waters, boats, and some wildlife like monkeys, etc at the small opposite island.
Food is fresh, freshest from all my experience finding these seafood restaurants. Cooking is good, delicious, rich with spices and taste. And best of all, CHEAP!
Here's what we ordered,
1) Tom Yum
2) Deep Fried Nestum Squid
3) Salted Egg Prawns Sambal
4) BBQ Stingray (Pari)
5) 3 Rice and 3 Drinks
ALL FOR MYR 85+
OMG. Holiday foods are the best.

Pendas Floating Restaurant has earned itself a new fan.

A friend of ours who visited the restaurant would not stop raving about the fresh seafood, and we decided that we had to check it out for ourselves.

The place was neither fussy nor pretentious and is perfect for a relaxing respite away from the busy town nearby. Our dining experience was reminiscent of a simpler time and was about as laid back as can be: the place was breeze-cooled and the view out of the floating restaurant was gorgeous and comforting.

The execution of the dishes and the reasonable pricing were a big hit with all of us. We were especially blown away by the butter squid – it was fresh, sweet and succulent, and wasn’t overpowered by the sauces and seasoning – so tasty we ordered two huge portions! Besides this dish, there are also a variety of other fresh seafood to choose from, notably their juicy prawns. We also loved the well-balanced flavours of the vegetable dishes and thought that they were fresh and crunchy.

We had the perfect dining experience at Pendas Floating Restaurant and would like to thank the cheerful staff for the amazing recommendations and flawless hospitality as well. You can be sure that we will be back!

The reviews of the restaurant are great, and deservedly so. Highly recommended if you're looking for a delicious, carefree and value-for-money meal with your family/friends.

Pendas Floating Restaurant is indeed a hidden gem in JB, and is definitely worth the trip. 5/5.

What this restaurant lacks in the finest and ambienxe, it makes up for in volumes with the fresh catch and quality of cooking. We were a family of 4 adults and 2 kids who devoured the black pepper prawns, sweet and sour sea bass as well as the battered squid like the world was coming to an end. This place is a must visit.
