There are many sustainable fish and prawn farming here, which more or less ensure the pricing of the seafood kept at reasonable level.
Makanan Laut 101 (Seafood 101, 新芳园海鲜) is a HALAL Seafood Restaurant at Sabindo, Tawau. You can find a few seafood restaurants around here including the Kam Ling Seafood Restaurant (Serve No Pork) and 1st Drink and Food Centre (famous fried meehun, non-halal). Makanan Laut 101 is owned by a Chinese Muslim, so do expect the restaurant serve the seafood in Chinese style!
