It's a must to have seafood in KK. The night before our mountain climbing, we had our dinner at Welcome Seafood Restaurant. Based on the reviews online, the price was reasonable and the food quality was highly recommended by other tourists and the locals too. There's another Welcome Seafood Restaurant at Penampang, that's their main branch. My friend's cousin was planning to bring us to the Penampang branch, but the place was not so accessible after the heavy pour so we decided to stick to Asia City branch instead.

First time here, I was quite amazed at the size of this restaurant. They occupied nearly the whole block of ground floor. There are two sections with green and red colour tables. Section with green tables is classified as halal, and section with red tables is non-halal.

There were many tourists from China and Korea. Lobsters, crabs, prawns, scallops, clams, squids, groupers, etc. Big lobster, RM380 per kg.

Everyone is busy to choose their plate of seafood.

The menu is here. We stood here for minutes to place our order. The waiter and waitress were busy serving the foreign customers first.

The vegetables menu.

That black lobster is rare. Tiger prawn RM220 per kg.. make sure you bring enough of $$ or credit card.

We ordered 7 dishes. The portion was just right for 5 of us. Can't remember how much is the bill. But the price is reasonable, if not mistaken it's about RM190++.

White clam soup

Sabah cangkuk manis. This is a must try dish in Sabah. It's different kind of cangkuk manis compared to other places in Malaysia. In Sarawak, you must try midin. In Sabah, you must try cangkuk manis.

Steamed white prawns. This is my favourite. I never liked prawns until I had the steamed prawns at Salut Seafood Restaurant many years ago.

Mongolian chicken

Butter prawns, we didn't order the tiger prawns.

Steamed sea snails

Garlic scallops

There's another famous place for seafood named Suang Tain Seafood, but be careful of the price they charge. As it's tourist attraction, they are notorious for being overpriced.

Welcome Seafood Restaurant has a website. If you want to make a reservation, or a view of their menu, please visit here.
