Where and What to Eat in Labuan

Labuan’s main city – Bandar Labuan – plays host to a plethora of restaurants and its duty-free status ensures that a bottle of beer can cost as little as RM4. The best places for cheap fare are the outdoor stalls along Jalan Muhibbah and the park between Sheraton Labuan and the Waterfront Hotel. Choice Restaurant is a good bet for tasty authentic Indian meals – try the roti canai with fish-head curry and sambal.

Meanwhile the open-air Restoran Seri Malindo along Jalan Bunga Kesuma near the museum is a large establishment with tasty fare. Additionally, the LA Coffee Bean is a modern bistro that stays open late and features an extensive menu of local specialties and western favourites – try the steak and stroganoff. Lastly, Portview Restaurant, along Jalan Merdeka next to the bus terminal, is a seafood franchise that dishes out appetizing Chinese cuisine.

Choice Restaurant

Serving distinctive Indian cuisine, Choice Restaurant is a surprisingly popular mamak restaurant located along Jalan OKK Awang Besar.

Kedai Kopi Fah Fah

Located at the corner of Jalan Bunga Raya and Jalan Bunga Melati, Kedai Kopi Fah Fah is a typical Chinese kopitiam that serves up tasty Chinese fare. Particularly noteworthy is the kway teow goreng (fried flat rice noodles); with indoor and outdoor seating, the establishment also has cheap beer and value-for-money fruit juices.

  • Location: Jalan Bunga Raya and Jalan Bunga Melati

Kedai Kopi Nam Thong

Another classic kopitiam, Kedai Kopi Nam Thong has archetypal Chinese fare including char siew (sliced sweetened pork) chicken rice, fried kway teow, pork ball soup mee and curry mee. Most customers don’t stay too long due to the fact that the indoor seating is warm and humid so table turnover is high – yet it must be said that the food is definitely worth the slight discomfort.

Restaurant Pulau Labuan

Facing Muslim Madina Restaurant, this establishment located along Jalan Bunga Mawar, serves up average Chinese fare. The menu is extensive at this air-conditioned venture – try the kangkung belacan, sizzling tofu, butter prawns and asam fish; the fare is tasty and, more importantly, affordable.

Port View Restaurant

A franchise eatery from Kota Kinabalu, this Chinese food establishment facing the waterfront, is open for lunch and dinner and has an air-conditioned interior. Try the baby kalian (Chinese vegetable) with crab sauce and butter prawns – service is nothing to shout about but the fare is worth the annoyance of the not-so-friendly-or-helpful staff.

  • Location: Jalan Merdeka

Restaurant Ngee Hing

The best dish at this Chinese eatery is the spicy steaming bowl of laksa – the gravy is thick and tasty and the noodles are extremely flavoursome. Located directly opposite the ferry terminal, Restaurant Ngee Hing is open for breakfast and lunch and is affordable.

Restoran Ramai Ramai

The dim sum at Restoran Ramai Ramai is very good – there’s plenty of choice but this eatery – located above the taxi stand at the intersection of Jalan Merdeka and Jalan Tun Mustapha – is slightly expensive. However if you’re tired of regular Chinese food, then the siu maai, cha siu baau and lo mai gai, here is well worth the extra bucks.

  • Location: Jalan Merdeka and Jalan Tun Mustapha

Restoran Selera Farizah

Open for breakfast, lunch and dinner, Restoran Selera Farizah is one of the few places in Labuan that serves up authentic Malay fare. Particularly good for the roti canai with fish curry as well as the murtabak, the nasi campur (mixed rice with an assortment of curries) is also very tasty at this mamak eatery. The TVs have the usual sports feeds most days.
