Must-try Dry Butter Prawn in Kota Kinabalu


by Amber L. Lanjuat

Since 1988, Kampung Nelayan Seafood Restaurant thrives to spoil their customers with its seafood dishes. The restaurant is located on the lakeside of Taman Tun Fuad, uniquely floating on the lakeside of a botanical garden.
Set a reservation and enjoy a meal (or two) at the only seafood restaurant in Kota Kinabalu complete with a daily night cultural performance of the largest indinegous ethnics groups of Sabah on a Malay architectural stage.

One of our personal favourites is the Dry Butter Prawn. We couldn’t get enough of this dish!

Another classic is the Steamed Dragon Grouper. A huge fish entrée, perfect to be shared among family members and friends.

Some of the other mouth-watering dishes we tried are:

There are a few dishes that we didn’t get to try but are HIGHLY recommended by the staff of Kampung Nelayan Floating Restaurant.

The Kam Hiong Style Crabs and the Steamed Nyonya Style Fish of your choice. 

*Prices and availability might differ depending on the season and other economical factors.*

If you’re up for something different, the restaurant also offers a BBQ Steamboat for only RM38 per person!
