  Ocean Restaurant
by Wild_Orchid

One of the largest seafood restaurants in Kota Kinabalu is Ocean Seafood Village. Located not far from the Promenade hotel, along KK's waterfront, it is popular amongst tourists and locals alike.

The restaurant can cater for large groups, but even smaller groups would not feel out of place here.

The staff are attentive and the service is quite good. They have tanks of live seafood from which you can choose and select what you want. If you don't wish to do this, you can also order off the menu-they have set menus and a la carte.

They have the manpower to deal with even larger groups, and the ambiance is quite good for formal occasions, and also suitable for a casual dinner with friends.

Favorite Dish: Steamed Red Garoupa fish
Sabah vegetable fried with garlic & chilli
Large Prawns, lightly steamed. Peel it, and dip it in a sauce of your own choosing or why not eat it "as is" for the ultimate fresh seafood experience!

Everything was fresh and delicious!

Update as at May 2008: They may have branches in Kudat and Miri but it seems that the KL branch has been closed.
