Unlike the Oasis Beach Bistro that is situated by the beach side that is great for romantic mood, this one is located at a garden in the vicinity of Resorts World Kijal and is designed to cater to those who would like a indulge in a casual night out with great food and wonderful live music in the background.

Check out the video. The video was recorded during my RW Media Retreat in September 2016. Open Herb Garden offers delicious seafood and local food offerings and food that is native to Terengganu like Sata and local favourites like Satay can be found at the uniquely decorated stall.

Seafood galore. Needless to say, I had a field day indulging in these. One thing led to another and by the end of the night, I ate more than 6 grilled crabs and at least half kilos of prawns.

Local favourites that was a hit among noodle lovers that night was this creamy Laksa Kemaman. Sorry about the plating presentation. We were too hungry to plate it nicely but don’t let the look fool you. This one was sensational.

Durian was in season during our retreat and here’s fresh durian for our gastronomic pleasure. I had loads of these delectable durians that night. Ask me no questions, and I’ll tell you no lies.

And what’s Malaysian night out without the frothy teh or kopi tarik? Here’s a video of Teh Tarik being prepared at Open Herb Garden.

We concluded our meal with a nice cuppa but we did not end our night early. After the meal, my husband and I joined the live band, Remix Band Rony on stage. We sing and danced the night away til almost midnight with all other guests who felt like joining the fun before we finally called a night.

My writeup does not do justice to the place. It is something you must experience yourself, and if you are ever in Kijal, do give this place a go. You definitely will not regret it.
