For the last few decades Kota Kinabalu or KK in short has gradually developed into a seafood destination. With the high numbers of seafood restaurants in the city and suburbs, Kota Kinabalu is surely the best place for seafood on Borneo Island. While in town most tourists would take this opportunity to dine at a few seafood restaurants. Kampung Seri Selera, which is located right in the city and within walking distance from most parts of KK, is a convenient place for tourists and locals to enjoy a good seafood dinner. As many as four seafood restaurants are found here, so customers can expect to have some good bargain as well as a wide variety of seafood to choose from. Situated at a corner lot Suang Tain Seafood Restaurant which is also popularly known as Twinsky has been in business at the same location for almost three decades now. Here customers can choose from a large variety of sea produces which are kept at the rows of aquariums.
The choice for a good dining experience in Kudat town can be quite limited especially at night, since most of the shoplots would have closed for business by 6 pm and all the petrol stations in town will be closed by 8pm. Night life at Kudat is almost none existent. But if you do happen to end up at Kudat for an overnight trip do not be despaired, the Sungai Wang Seafood Restaurant at the New Tomborungus Township is a worth while restaurant to enjoy some really tasty seafood. The seafood in Kudat is of good quality as fishermen do bring in their daily catch. Sungai Wang Restaurant is also the main place for the Chinese Community to hold events like anniversary, baby shower, birthday and wedding.
The Sungai Wang Restaurant serves mostly Chinese cuisine with seafood as the main selection. Beef, chicken and pork are also available in the menu. Popular prawn dishes like steamed fresh prawn, dry and wet butter prawn, and spicy tiger prawn are favourites among the customers. Live ocean fishes are available too, normally these fishes are the most pricey items on the menu. The cost for seafood here is considered moderate if compared with those in Kota Kinabalu.
