A celebration of flavours and aromas

With a focus on freshness and local flavours, dining at Tanjong Jara Resort's restaurants is scenic, exquisite and informal; offering traditional Malaysian dishes or delectable Western fare.

Honouring the best ingredients on its doorstep, coastal cuisine is one of the highlights of Tanjong Jara Resort, and with a selection of charming settings, meals here are relaxed, enjoyable experiences; whether on the beach gazing out to sea, under the shade of rustling palms or over the meandering river.

di atas sungei

Di Atas Sungei is Malay for 'Above the River' so guests will find it easy to spot this restaurant which literally sits above a river that flows into the South China Sea. With no menu, guests are guided by the resort's Menu Masters, experts in local cuisine, who provide a distinctive dining experience using only the freshest produce of the highest quality. Surrounded by lush tropical greenery, and shaded by a huge ketapang tree, the restaurant opens for breakfast and dinner, and serves authentic Malaysian cuisine.


Nelayan, meaning ‘Fisherman’ in the Malay language, was inspired by the locally and internationally acclaimed signature restaurant, Fisherman’s Cove. Nelayan offers a variety of Asian and Western selections for lunch while dinner features a unique symphony of seafood themed dishes which focuses on sustainable fishing practices and the freshest ingredients. Its seaside setting and romantic ambience sets the perfect tone for a relaxed dining experience.
