Bottom Line

Definitely recommend this restaurant for a quick easy meal. From other diners nearby, we could see they have a range of cooking styles for the different types of seafood. Deep fried mantou buns are also available.


After a long drive from Kuala Lumpur to Cherating for a much awaited beach holiday, we were looking for lunch before our 3pm check-in. We did a search for local restaurants and up came Intan Seafood Cherating Restaurant, which ticked all the boxes. It’s by the sea, everyone was happy with seafood and it opened at 2pm.

Kampung style halal seafood restaurant by the sea.

Although the restaurant is on the front verandah of a kampung style home, with all Malay staff, the food is prepared Chinese style, with plenty of fresh vegetable and simple stir fried dishes on the menu. Prices are very reasonable, although you must be aware that for seafood, pricing will be seasonal, based on the market price of the prawns, crabs, or other seafood.

Reasonable prices

For our party of seven, we chose doubles of a stir fried vegetable and a chicken dish and two sizzling bean curd. One plate of butter prawns was enough for all. They were very fresh and for all the dishes, the plates went back to the kitchen clean. We also ordered fresh watermelon juice and iced lemon tea.
