Dinner @Orkid Ria Seafood Restaurant, Langkawi

Pantai Cenang is a tourist spot. Therefore do not expect for dirt cheap seafood here.

My proposed plan did not work. We had to make a quick decision on where should we have our dinner. We wanted to have some seafood. Although there are quite a number of seafood restaurants along Pantai Tengah and Pantai Cenang, but we do not want to step into a restaurant blindly without knowing the price range. Therefore I quickly browse for recommendations through Tripadvisor. Tripadvisor has been a very useful website to me. I find the reviews are quite genuine especially on hotels.

Looks like Orkid Ria Seafood Restaurant is an ideal choice with many positive reviews. It is located further down from Underwater World if you are coming from Pantai Tengah. It was less than 5 minutes driving distance.


The restaurant is brightly lit and the environment was not bad.


The restaurant was almost filled up with customers and majority are tourists. But getting a table for only 2 ain’t a problem. πŸ˜‰

Sometimes I felt it is kinda difficult to decide what to order when there are only 2 eaters. Its like you wanting to try varieties of dishes and at the same time you do not want to end up with food wastage.

I assumed because the kitchen need to handle alot of orders..therefore our food was delivered abit slow. Waited for about 30minutes. You know right..when you are hungry..you tend to be ‘quite’ impatient. LOL!


Pick your own fishes.


Erm….Crab are priced at RM80/kg?!! OMG!


Fresh and live lobsters. Look tempting. You can ask the staff to fetch any of this lobster and they weight it and priced according to its weight.


My small glass of orange juice.

Not memorable. The oysters were kinda small.


Fried Squid – RM18

Crispy batter and the squid was not rubbery. Fried till perfection.


Butter Prawn – RM18

The prawn size weren’t too small. Most important is that they are fresh! Therefore the prawns were crunchy. Average 6nos. of prawn.


Tom Yam Chicken – RM15

Not really big bowl, but sufficient for 2 eaters. This hot, spicy and sourish soup was really appetizing.

Overall..I find this place may be a good choice when you are at Pantai Cenang. We were quite satisfied with the above dinner. The prices for the above food consider affordable. Not too pricey. But if you fancy some Thai flavors cooking…do make a turn into Kuah Town and try this place; Lgk Yummy Yummy Seafood.

  1. oooh, ya, i’ve used tripadvisor for recommendations for hotels/hostels while traveling, and it’s very helpful, but i think their restaurant listings can sometimes be not as reliable (especially for the outlets in KL, heh) πŸ˜€ anyway, the butter prawns look excellent here! πŸ˜€

  2. That’s certainly affordable considering you were in a tourist area. Must say the butter prawns look awesome!

  3. Yeah, it does seem cheap for a tourist trap! πŸ™‚

    Most seafood places in KL are much more expensive than that, and less fresh too. I like how you can pick and choose your own fish/lobster/crab – adds a nice touch to eating.

    The butter prawns looks good and tom yam chicken seems absolutely fiery! πŸ˜€

  4. No visit to Langkawi is complete without a seafood dinner (we had seafood almost everyday we were there :P). There were quite a number of seafood restaurants to choose from but we decided to go to Orkid Ria. That restaurant has been around for the longest time. I remember eating in Orkid Ria as a child whenever we visited Langkawi, way back in the day. Of course it was in another location and way smaller, but the food is still the same. Good fresh seafood! The decor of the place has changed too, from a simple open air shop lot to fancy lights and cafe style tables and chairs.

  5. I think Orkid Ria won’t simply “chop” people with the price lor. The rest we dare not try, scared kena chopped. Hahahaha.
