We had our dinner at Suang Tain Seafood 2 nights in a row. The place has a good variety of live seafood to choose from and the prices are reasonable as well. We were pretty excited as well when we saw that coconut crabs were sold here. We ordered a huge one and it was definitely an experience for us. Will certainly be back for the coconut crabs the next time we come to Kota Kinabalu!
I had Suang Tain for two nights and it did not disappoint me. The “east star” garoupa was the BEST fish I ever tasted in the last 10 years! Other seafood, such as the tiger prawn and the large clams were also highly commendable.
