Below we will share some of the food experience at Hai Kah Lang PJ Seapark branch.

The restaurant is a two-story shop located at the corner of a line of shops. As soon as you walk in, you’ll be amazed by how busy it is. Everyone was waiting patiently to be seated.

Their ordering system is efficient. Just took a number from the counter and wait for it to be called. While waiting, the waiter will take your order to save time once you are seated. 

During peak hours, queues are expected, but they move quickly. We waited for about 20 minutes to be seated, but it was worth it.

Hai Kah Lang Open Kitchen

The staff can be seen preparing the food in the open kitchen, and you can also catch a glimpse of their fresh seafood from the aquarium and kitchen area.

What To Eat in Hai Kah Lang

There are many delicious options to choose from at Hai Kah Lang’s menu. Firstly, you can select from a variety of seafood including fish, clams, octopus, lobster, oysters, and more.

Next, you can choose your broth from options such as clear soup with rice wine, tom yum, and laksa. Lastly, you can also select your preferred noodles. If you prefer, you can also just order seafood without the noodles.. This is a great option for people who just want to savor the seafood without the noodles.

The side dishes menu also offers exciting options such as fried fishcake, braised shark lips, blanched octopus, and fresh raw oysters.

For those trying it for the first time, we recommend the mixed seafood bowl which includes a variety of seafood such as crab, clams, fish, squid, and shrimp all in one bowl. Other popular options include fried fish head noodles, clam, or grouper fish noodles.

Prices vary based on the seafood of your choice, but generally range from RM18 to RM30 for a bowl of seafood noodles. Prepare to spend about RM40 including the drinks.

Mixed Seafood Noodles Bowl

When we first time visited Hai Kah Lang, we ordered the Hai Kah Lang’s signature – mixed seafood bowl with clear soup.

The huge bowl is so fabulous, and it came with fleshy small flower crabs, a tiger prawn, boneless grouper fish, clams, lots of squids, and our choice of mixian noodles.

Hai Kah Lang Fresh Seafood

The seafood was cooked impeccably and retained its freshness. It was a great experience to taste all the freshness seafood in one bowl.

The broth’s flavor was exceptional, with aromas of Huadiao wine and a delightful blend of rich and aromatic taste. It was topped with a slight amount of garlic oil, which enhanced the flavor and made it so tasty!

Don’t forget to try the noodles with the belacan dip. It has a subtle tanginess that complements the seafood well and it’s not too spicy. It’s truly addictive!

Fish Head Noodles

The Hai Kah Lang Seafood is so delicious. We keep returned to try out their remaining dishes on the menu.

Hai Kah Lang is also famous for its signature Fish Head Noodles. The dish comprises a bowl of noodles in milky soup, accompanied by fresh pieces of different parts of a grouper’s head in another bowl. The flavorful milky broth is one of the highlights of this dish.

You are opted to choose clear soup or milky soup.

Red Snapper Fish Noodles

Another excellent recommendation is the exquisite Red Snapper Fish Noodles.

It’s a perfect option for those who want to savor the fish’s sweetness. The bowl retains the natural essence of the fish, adding to the overall delightful taste of the dish.

Hai Kah Lang Tom Yum Prawn Noodles

We also tried tiger prawn or ming prawn options for those who love prawns. The Tom Yum version is particularly flavorful. However, please note that the Tom Yum soup needs to pay for additional fee but it’s worth it.

For me, it is worth the try but I still prefer the freshness of the clear soup.

Side Dishes

We ordered a small plate of baby octopus and clams.

The food were cooked to perfection with the right timing and served with a delicious dipping sauce. I enjoyed the taste, but the serving size was too small. Perhaps I should order more next time.
