I discovered this excellent restaurant when celebrating a buddy's bday. Waranee is a small eating place in Kampung Gelam, Port Dickson. If you're heading through Pantai Cahaya Bulan, search for a junction with the Shell refinery on the right. At the junction turn left and drive towards some shophouses on your right side. The shop looks like most Malaysian Thai Restaurant. Its also priced about the same, a plate of Thai fried rice will be RM5. 00. But we preordered our food. My favourite was the fish cooked in lime. Every single plate that arrived has been magnificently adorned and also tasty. As i have worked throughout Thailand for around a year or so, I can fairly point out the food here is real Thai. So if you seeking very good Thai food when in Port Dickson head over to the Waranee Thai Restaurant.
Favorite Dish: Steamed Fish Cooked in Lime Sauce
Mamma Food Junction is located in Taman Ria. Its less than a kilometer from Grand Lexis or Glory Beach Resort. Its a sort of food court with stalls of Sotong Kangkong and Tauhu Bakar, Nasi Ayam, Teppanyaki, a Pakistani food stall and also Roti Canai and Naan. The also an ala carte with local and western dishes.
Favorite Dish: But for me I go there for their mee curry meletup which is really spicy. A bowl only cost RM 4 and its really nice. There is also a burger stall there. So if you are looking for a place with cheap eats just head towards Lukut from PD Town and look out for a brightly lit foodcourt just after a traffic light. Its not hard to miss it. Only issue on weekends is that parking might be a problem as there is very limited parking around.
The best seafood restaurant in town with a very affordable price. Once visit will bring you back again and again...
Business Hours: 10am to 11pm
Favorite Dish: Some of the recommended dishes are Thai Style Mango Chicken, Nestum Butter Prawns, Steam Local Fish, Cheese Crab, Soup of Lala, Special Claypot Seafood, Coconut Prawn, Special Bean Curd, Chili Crab, Sesame Sotong, etc. I personally like the Speical Claypot Seafood and cheese crab. Must try.
The boss who is a young dashing guy will approach you on some comments on the food. Hey, customer's feedback is of utmost importance !
Located near to Teluk Kemang beach and Guoman Hotel.
Nice breakfast, good lunch, superior dinner.. all served with cold Tiger or fresh juices if you prefer.
Next to Le Paris Hotel and PD Catholic church.
Nice friendly staff.
Favorite Dish: Try out their Satay sticks! Ggggreat!
This restoran also has a restoran in Kemayan Square, Seremban.
It may not be the best seafood in PD but it's up there.
The service is only fair, the food is average and the ambience and decor is fair to good.
The best thing about it is, it's on the seafront with a nice view of the Straits of Malacca.
Many years ago, it had an outdoor area which has now been closed in. Returning there on 10 August 2007 after a few years, the extensions catering for the hundreds of nightly guests, has ruined the ambience.
However, the local Chinese seem to really love it so i should be less critical.
Frankly, i've often been to the one in Kemayan Square, Seremban. It's MUCH better.
Open for lunch until 2pm sharp (if you're late you will NOT be served). Nightly from 7pm.
We paid RM107 (US$27,50) for 3 adults including fresh juices.
Favorite Dish: The buttered prawns were good, the mini-squid in the yam basket were overcooked. The lobster is good at RM20 per 100 gram (minimum 400gram).
You select your seafood from the live ones swimming in the big tanks.
Whatever you order, buy 1 vegetable dish and a SMALL meat dish for each person on the table. It will be more than enough.
The menu shows small and large - the large is enough for 2 or 3 people.
Locals buy small and share thereby having a better selection. Don't put ALL the rice on your plate unless you're starving.
This is one of my favourite PD (Port Dickson) restaurants.
Service is WAY above average; here they welcome you, say thank you and treat you as if you're a valuable customer (a bit of a change here in MY).
I think someone must have told the staff who pays their wages.
Most restaurant workers in Malaysia think that the boss pays their wages.
Heaps of parking (that's normally a problem in Malaysia).
Mix of genuine Mexican and Western with even a bit of Malaysian food. Licensed.
Mexican food is not too spicy so if you're trying to kill your taste buds, this is not for you.
Price is VERY reasonable and i've classified it "less expensive" because the quality of the food is so high but the price is normal.
We paid RM120 (US$35) for 3 adults for 3 course meal including spirits. WOW!!!
Perfect for families with young kids.
If you're in PD, DO NOT MISS THIS ONE.
TRAP - Sadly, this restaurant does NOT take credit cards.
Favorite Dish: The tachos, bueritos, even the good ol' Malaysian chicken chop.!!
No it's not spectacular but the service, decior, atmosphere and price are Soooo spectacular that it deserves to be over-rated.
We decided to try this restaurant on our way to Port Dickson Half Marathon. We heard so much praises in the food blogs.
It is located at the corner lot of a row of shophouses opposite Chinese School - Sekolah Rendah Jenis Kebangsaan Chung Hua Lukut. P.D 1964. If not sure, ask the locals - they will point you to the right place. Yes..It is THAT famous.
Favorite Dish: The signature dish is the LUCKY KING BUN!
A very unique dish - chicken curry wrapped inside a huge bun!
The bun is cut open with a pair of scissors, revealing a "pouch" of chicken curry inside. The serving method is quite appealing. Love the star shape presentation.
How do you eat this dish? Just use your hand to tear of the bun and then dip it into the curry. The bun will absorb the yummy goodness of the curry. You can scoop up the chicken and eat it with the bun. The curry chicken is thick and very delicious. Hmmmm....writing this review is making me hungry again. Heheh!
The verdict: See that last picture. We practically wolfed down everything except the plastic and aluminum wrapper. Yes...it is THAT good!
One bun costs about RM18, good for 4-6 people.
I was having a hard time finding a vegetarian restaurant here. But there is one to the left on the road from Port Dickson to Lukut. It's somewhere near the Shell refinery but I can't remember it's name. The signboard is quite prominent and it's at the corner of a row of shophouses. The food is Indian and could be very spicy. But it's quite tasty and worth the try!
Nice place, clean and well-maintained. Open air concept, though indoor and sheltered sections are also available. A good place if street warongs (stalls) are a definite no-no. fast service. Good food. Good smoothies. Money well-spent. Ample parking space. There's a little stage with live entertainment... (1 out of 5 rating for entertainment value). The owner or the captain on duty (he wore a long sleeved t'ganu batik under the signature dato'-dato' or gerak khas wannabe sleeveless vest) kept making his rounds. too much making him look more like a security officer on guard.
Favorite Dish: The soursop and pineapple smoothies was really good, compared to those I always get from such restaurants back in KL or JB.
The local fare were tasty, though the portion was quite small.
The restaurant is located at the main street of Lukut, north of Port Dickson. A local friend recommended this local specialty to me. It's a huge bun wrapped with curry chicken fillings. The bread is soft with butter taste, definitely good for dipping the curry. The curry chicken is fragrant and not that spicy therefore it suites everyone's taste.
Favorite Dish: A big bun costs RM23, whereas a small one is RM18. There are three types of flavours or rather fillings. However, the other two flavours need to be pre-ordered.
This malay eatery situated at Teluk Kemang beach is one of the larger ikan bakar restaurants situated in the vicinity.
Quality and taste of food are ordinary. Ample parking space. Next to the parking lot and right turn, you can try steamboat.
A must try Sweet & Sour crab at Klana Lodge around 4th mile. It is an old school chinese restaurant with a view by the beach.
Sea food Tom Yam at Songkla which is situated at 8th mile. The restaurant is a bit cramed up but the food they serve Im sure you would be pouring down.
The hotel restaurants served great food and it can be quite pricey. A plate of chicken rice costs us RM$10.. But it was yummy though..
Saw their breakfast bufffet spread... Damn good .. Cost RM$35... Never try but it sure looks good...
They also have romantic dinner set, dining under the star, overseeing the horizon... Beauuutifull.... Cost abt RM$100 per person...
nasi goreng kampong is fried rice with several kind of veggie and diced chicken. yummy and hot, added with chili paste. this chinese style of food, i know very well since can be found easily at my homeland too. and the special recipe i like from this food; the fragrance of belacan [shimp paste]. it's kinda different with nasi goreng in indonesia.
Al-fresco dining (if you choose to have a meal there) but a much better option is takeaway :-)
Favorite Dish: NASI LEMAK !!
One of the BEST nasi lemak I have ever tasted with salted fish !! yuummmmm !!!
Will describe Nasi Lemak later ..
