Dining, Kampung style

It isn't always easy to find kampung-esque styled restaurants as modern establishments take over. That is why I personally consider this place to be a gem, a long lost restaurant that hasn't forgotten its roots. I visited this place with my family some time ago and we were pleasantly greeted with the friendly staff who were working there. Their menus were very nicely designed and easy to read, we quickly made our orders and were soon greeted with the kampung-style food that we all know and love. They actually tastes great and some of the dishes were very spicy since this is all ingrained into the Malay food culture. A great place to try out and definitely one that is worth returning to over and over again.

Excellent Cooking, But The Seafood Isn't The Freshest

Delima Restaurant / Delima Tomyam & Diana Seafood Restaurant / Restoran Delima is very popular with guests staying at Berjaya Tioman Resort, but it is also popular with Tioman locals.

Ambience at Delima Restaurant / Delima Tomyam & Diana Seafood Restaurant / Restoran Delima is simple and sparse. There are proper tables, chairs, flooring and shelter, with a village (Kampung) vibe. Despite not being located beside the beach, they do win points for having a mini mart, a fully air-conditioned small shop, which stocks mostly food stuffs and snacks, as well as toiletries. They also have a large screen LCD television set, and during my visit, they were screening coverage of the London 2012 Olympics.

Even during peak periods, when the restaurant is packed, they are still attentive and quick. Great service!

Food at Delima Restaurant / Delima Tomyam & Diana Seafood Restaurant / Restoran Delima is excellent, Halal, Zi Char style cooking. Dishes are tasty and pack good flavour. The seafood available isn't the absolute freshest, but still palatable, which is surprising considering their proximity to the beach and fishing communities. Among the range of seafood, the various types of fish, squid, and prawns, tend to be slightly fresher. The least fresh are the scallops, and best avoided.

The food specialties at Delima Restaurant / Delima Tomyam & Diana Seafood Restaurant / Restoran Delima include tomyam soup, fish dishes, squid dishes, egg dishes and fried rice.
