South Sea Seafood Restaurant

>> Tuesday, April 24, 2012

Venue: Kampung Baru Subang, area behind Subang airport
Occasion: Mum's birthday dinner
Overall comment: Fresh seafood that tastes pretty good. Prices are slightly steep, especially the fish. If you're willing to spend for good food, this is quite a good place for fresh seafood; if not, there are other better options.
Halal: Yes

This place is so near where I stay, but we've never really been here - all because we're creatures of habit who dine at the same few restaurants every other day & also because we usually have our meals "outside" before we head home.

Last Sunday was my mum's birthday. Thus, my dad decided that we should try this place out since mum has been mentioning of about trying this place out. This restaurant has gone through much re-branding since it begun. I could still remember it was just a quiet "shack-like" restaurant without much crowd around 10+ years ago, along with some gigantic prawn/crab right outside its entrance...well, the crowd wasn't like last Sunday's!

Member's Privileges
I didn't know that such a place would even have membership cards! Wow... 

Dad waiting patiently for a table
As we were there around 8+pm, the crowd was just crazee...SO MANY people! I wouldn't have imagined it. Thankfully, there were only 4 of us in a family, so we didn't need to wait that long for people to eat & leave :D 

LOADS of fresh seafood
It's like a whole exhibit of sea creatures, waiting to be served on the meal table *sobs* As a consolation, all seafood served here would most probably be fresh...

We didn't need to wait that long for our food to arrive. In the mean time, we just enjoyed our coconut drink & caught up with each other ;)

Steamed Sea Grouper (RM106.00)
When the bill arrived after our meal, I saw the price & was actually shocked! The fish wasn't that large, okay? But it was fresh. I felt it was slightly over-steamed, but it's still acceptable. Taste & texture is still good...but the price...oh my, I really didn't expect it :S Lesson learned, ask for the prices per kg before ordering. The waitress recommended Sea Grouper, some other grouper (that sounded even more expensive), & "Soon Hock", which we assumed was even more costly...yikes...if it's on a normal dinner meal, I would have felt the pinch real bad...hahaha...

Tiger Prawns in Herbal Stock + Wine (RM40.00)
There were only 9 prawns & it's really lacking in wine. Perhaps it's because this place is a halal one, thus there's no wine (although the waitress said there is). I wish there was more soup, but I was actually quite pleased with this dish. The prawns were very fresh & the texture was just right - springy/crunchy :D 

Dips for the prawns
I prefer to eat the prawns just as it is...but the "dark-coloured" dip, which has "mui choy" in it, tastes really unique & nice! 

Stir-Fried "Yau Mak"/Romaine Lettuce (RM13.00)
Fresh & crisp! Just the way we liked it :) But yes, for the portion served, it is quite expensive... 

Cheese-Baked Oysters (RM32.00 - RM8/oyster)
I thought the oysters that I saw in the tank weren't this expensive...hahaha...must be the additional cost for cooking :P Overall this was okay...I expected more to it...it was over-powering with garlic in the cheese though :S 

Birthday Noodles/"Sau Meen" (RM28.00)
Taste was good, portion was quite generous for the 4 of us to finish up - overall, quite a good plate of birthday noodles :) 

Birthday-girl :)

My home-baked peach cake with yoghurt

Will I dine at South Sea again? I won't mind, providing I'm feeling rich! Hahaha...for this sort of quality & taste, if not for the price, I would actually frequent this restaurant. But because the price is quite steep, I've other restaurants on my list that I would consider first :)

Nice seafood place but yeah...it's expensive. I had their chinese wine clams and chili crabs. Quite nice I must say.

Bad experience yesterday night at SouthSea and will never go again. Five star place and price with 1 star staff and service.
1.Two of us went for dinner. We rejected the noodle crab pot as its too spicy with so much hot pepper, we only order crab noodle in pot but never ask for black pepper at all.
2. They took in n brought back to us, saying chef tasted n nothing wrong. It's their style. Then say will adjust the taste with the same pot n serve us.
3. Of course we reject coz is not hygiene. We requested to change with a new crab n cook again since we have not eaten the crab. They refuse.
4. Force us to pay or take back. Some more threaten report to police if we don't pay. A 5 star price restaurant do like 2 star style. Cannot bear to go extra miles.
5. My friend thought just RM86 n pay. I decided to take photo to post in facebook. Then the two staff acted like gangster.
6. Started taking our photo without our permission. Violated Customer privacy promise.
7. Didn't even give us any bill and our credit card receipt. Consumer act violation.
8. Acted like gangster after we pay. Will surely complain to relevant authority.

Really bad experience eating there.
Pls help me as I want to complain to their boss.
