    Fish Farm Restaurant: Restaurant w/ Live Seafood and More in Kuah

    by machomikemd Written Jun 6, 2014

    according to our local private tour guide, the Fish Farm Restaurant in Kuah is the best among all the seafood restaurants in Langkawi so we ate a really late lunch here as a continuation of our whole day langkawi Island Tour. the concept here is similar to other seafood restaurants around asia, like having live fish tanks housing assorted fishes, clams, shellfish and crustaceans of which you can choose what you want and they will cook for you at any cooking style you want (live seafoods are priced per 100 grams like for example, black grouper which is a langkawi specialty is priced 20 ringgit per 100 grams and includes the cooking charge). Or you can just order from their set menu, which is also quite extensive.

    the live produce is grown from their fish farms located just across the harbor, about 100 meters from the shore.

    the restaurant is divided into 4 sections and are all open spaced with no enclosed rooms.

    Operating Hours:
    From 1pm - 10pm everyday

    Favorite Dish: since this is a muslim majority area, the seafood restaurant is halal, meaning they don't serve pork here.

    we had the langkawi special live hybtrid black grouper steam in light soy sauce at 200 ringgit for 1 kilo, live tiger prawns, buttered at 150 rinngit for 500 grams, assortted malay and thai fried rice and sizzling spicy beef.

    total bill is 450 ringgit and there is no service charge or sales tax as langkawi is a duty free island

    Kentucky Fried Chicken (KFC): No.1 Fried Chicken Company In the World

    by machomikemd Updated Jun 6, 2014

    1.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    hey, since malaysia is a muslim majority state, pork is not allowed except for other religious groups hence chicken restaurants are very popular here (both local and international chains) and the international chain of Kentucky Fried Chicken is no exception. Like in other areas, they add local flavor to their popular meals like the lemak chicken so the Kentucky Fried Chicken is especially popular here in Malaysia. They have 5 locations here in Pulau Langkawi and we tried their branh at the Cenang Mall which is open 24/7!

    tidbits: you can see that KFC in Muslim countries don't have the typical yummy gravy as sauce for chicken and mash potatoies as the gravy sauce is non halal and they instead use tomato catsup or sweet chili sauce as dip for KFC Chicken.

    Some KFC stores in Muslim Countries have Gravy which is cetified Halal but if your used to the real Taste of KFC Gravy, you would sense a different taste of the gravy

    Favorite Dish: well the kentucky fried chicken off course and a combo meal here will cost RM 12. a single meals with colonel burger and fries or wedges will cost about RM 8, Kentuck Special Fried Chicken with Nasi Lemak or Special KFC Chicken Rice meal combo will cost RM 13. the choices are endless and for the hungry people like me

    Old Town White Coffee: Malaysia's No.1 Coffee Chain

    by machomikemd Written Jun 6, 2014

    1.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Malaysia's Number one Coffee Chain and a rival of Starbuck's Coffee in Malaysia was founded in 1998 in Ipoh, Malaysia. Kopi which Malaysians Call Coffee is the second most consumed beverage after tea and this coffee chain now has more than 200 branches across 13 countries in Asia. they have a large selection of coffee and tea brews of which they claim that they mix 3 different coffee beans into a perfect white coffee. we tried their branch here at the second floor of the Cenang Mall. they have another branch in Kuah Town.

    opens: Mon - Fri : 10.00am - 11.00pmSat, Sun & PH : 9.00am - 11.00pm

    according to their website:

    From the day our proprietary OLDTOWN™ White Coffee blend was formulated, it has been steadfastly carried down over the years to this day. Our white coffee are roasted and prepared according to the original method to ensure that every cup of OLDTOWN™ White Coffee imparts the same full-bodied taste, texture and aroma year after year. Our commitment to maintain the true essence of our heritage has helped us to create a one-of-its-kind brand that is renowned the world over. To date, our white coffee products are exported to more than 13 countries worldwide. Our business also includes the OLDTOWN™ White Coffee chain of café outlets. Carrying the charm of a traditional ipoh coffee shop, we serve a variety of Malaysian delicacies from white coffee to toasts, rice and noodles. To date, we have more than 200 café outlets through out Asia.

    Favorite Dish: what elso but the different kinds of white coffee! whiter coffee means adding creamer or milk to black coffee in room temperature to differentiate it from Latte or au lait, where steam milk or cold milk is added to coffee and here in Malaysia the coffee is roasted in margarine!

    they have many kinds of coffee and tea selections both hot and cold and a dizzying array for food but what we got is the regular Cold Old Town White Coffee and Cold Halzelnut Old Town White Coffee blends which costs RM 11 and 12.50 respectively and also bought coffee bags too!

    Breakfast Bar: Inexpensive food but - you get what you pay for

    by Jeanling Written May 15, 2013

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    One can still enjoy lunch here despite the place being named as "Breakfast Bar". Located on the street side on the beach strech in Cenang Beach, this is a place with very reasonable price for food in Langkawi. We hand fruit platter, cheese omlette, a chicken rice set, 2 soft-boiled eggs and 2 plain water and it cost RM17.50. Quality wise, it was not as good as we expected - the rice was a bit uncooked. Hopefully this doesn't happen on other days and occasion. The restaurant is shady and there are huts in open air for guest to sit, besides tables and bar in the restaurant.

    The Cliff Restaurant & Bar: Serenity of Splashing Waves

    by Jeanling Updated May 14, 2013

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Situated behind the Langkawi Underwater World, I doubt that I would notice this place if I were to pass by Pantai Cenang by myself -it is not exactly visible from the road side. Nestled just above the rocky cliff by the beach, this would be a good place to just relax and enjoy a quiet meal accompanied by the sound of splashing waves...

    Drinks at the bar are reasonably priced. However, the food is a bit expensive to my budget, and it's not exactly to die for. I would recommend this place if you like to sip your margarita to the sound of the splashing waves while watching the sun set at the bar.

    Favorite Dish: The drink from the bar...

    Sheela's: Our selection - Number One

    by akkipaa Updated Feb 19, 2013

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    I rank this restaurant best on the area, of course we have to remember that I visited only some twelve others, but we got recommendations and heard the value of the place from other travelers too. I qualify the restaurant local, it is run by a couple (Malaysian-German) who know how to make the place worth of visiting. They are friendly and visible in the restaurant, helping with issues (normally there are none, but you might want to know more of the food, drinks or e.g. spicy levels). Malaysian-Thai I would like to say.

    Main part of the restaurant is in the garden. This is of course challenging in the tropic, sometimes rain goes and come, check the weather reports in advance and stay inside if needed. We were here twice and the other evening was rainy (and when it rains it really rains here). The walls of the restaurant are covered with paintings by a German artist (I understood it was not the owner's husband.

    You can find cheaper restaurants from the area, but definitely the quality-price here is very reasonable.

    (And you can find westerns food made by the German part of the owner, but we were not here to eat western food)

    Favorite Dish: Don't miss Chicken Satay with Peanut Sauce. During our stay we ate peanut sauce many times and we fell in love to that. This restaurant served the best one and a helpful cook gave us the secret recipe, I add it later to my pages, after we have tested it.

    The second secret of the place is... hmm... I can't tell, it's a secret but I give you a clue: if you would like to drink something, you have to open your mouth (of course :)

    Mixed Salad 10RM
    Chicken Satay 15RM
    Chicken Curry 26RM
    Chicken Lemon 26RM
    Mee Mamak 11RM
    Beer 6RM
    Red wine 8,50RM
    Gin Fizz 14RM

    18:00 – 22:30p Tuesday – Sunday

    We went there twice total bills 114 and 153RM.
