Tripadvisor ranks this restaurant #1 of 1 restaurant. Yes, there really is just one restaurant in Sekiu. Nevertheless, my friend Candi and I ate very well here (she requested only half the bun; they happily obliged). The place is not big, but it has earned its "favorite" status with locals and visitors.
