In Pentai Cenang this is the most popular seafood restaurant and a bit touristy but that really doesn't matter as it's awesome.

It's kind of out in the open as in open air but with a high roof. It's a very casual place with basic tables and chairs. Service was ok but don't be bothered by slow service as it's all about the food.

They have lots of seafood on the menu with many types of fish on ice available but you can opt for the live fish, which you should definitely do.

A live Tiger Grouper was 13 ringgit (about £2.50) per 100g and the fish was around 600g (smallest size). Hence, for this live fish it was about £15! That's cheap for a live fish of that size. We had it grilled and it was cooked to perfection.

We also opted for a Rainbow Lobster which was 40 ringgit (about £7.60) and this was also around 600g (smallest size). Hence, this was about £45, which is very good for a lobster. It was fabulous and amongst the best lobster's i've had.

I would throughly recommend Orkid Ria. I note that some people have commented on the restaurant being expensive but it really depends on what you order. Our meal was about £75 but we did order live lobster and live fish. If we had ordered a seabass on ice it would've been a far cheaper meal.

If you don't want to pay for lobster then stick to a live fish and your meal will be much cheaper.

Great food and you should go here.

Read the reviews thought it was worth a visit, it’s clean and the portions are a great size but it’s more expensive to than the rest of the strip with no more wow factor...

It’s just your average run on the mill Chinese restaurant offering bits and bobs from around the world to suit the basic western taste buds

Nice food but nothing special. Price is normal - for two people around MYR 80 to MYR 130 depending on what you order. Quite pack during dinner time, might want to go slightly early.

Went there twice during stay in Langkawi. Service was fast even though the restaurant seemed busy. Food was good, ate scallops and softshell crabs. Since these were not ordered by gram, the price was quite cheap also.

However, later visit was on the last day for our trip in Malaysia, and we were quite low on cash so we asked if it's possible to pay by credit card. This was ok, but after making our order the waiter told us that minimum payment with credit card is RM100, and our bill will not be big enough. This was not a huge problem for us, we managed to find enough cash to pay the bill. Just a heads up for you.
