Restaurant Seafood Terminal is the place that promises to satisfy all your seafood cravings. A “combo-meal”, Seafood Terminal offers a DIY choice of a BBQ hot plate, a steamer and a pot for steamboat. The stove that we use to cook the meats in is simply big, definitely heavy-duty stuff!

Run by Malay proprietors, the restaurant is basic and without air-conditioned, however all that is made up for when you see the variety of seafood at the table! A buffet meal, you get a good choice of seafood from huge prawns, to tasty crabs, to all kinds of fishes. Word had it that the restaurateurs got the seafood directly from the fishermen; therefore it explains why it is fresh every time!

For the steamboat, you can have a choice of either chicken or tom yam soup, although the attention was more towards the BBQ. Self-service in certain ways, you have to get your fresh seafood from a counter back to your table to BBQ or boil.

For the fish, just go to the "fish counter" and choose the one that you like. Then, head over to the “ingredients/sauces/condiments" counter to choose the ingredients that you would like to have with the fish. The restaurateurs will then prepare the fish for you and bring it to your table to be steamed on the spot. While you are enjoying your BBQ, the fish will be steaming in the pot. When done, just sample it straight from the steamer, thus ensuring that the fish is always hot and delicious! Try steaming assam-styled prawns as well. You may eat as many fishes, prawns, crabs, and squids as you like. At the end of the meal, just pay RM39 nett per person for a great time and great food!
