Hidden from the hustle and bustle of the bustling Bangsar city, Southern Rock Seafood is a humble seafood restaurant that prides itself on serving the best premium oysters in town! Wait, that’s not it! If you’re in search of some seriously fresh and lip-smacking seafood dishes, we reckon there’s no better spot than this in Bangsar.
From Freshly Shucked Oysters to Uniquely Lip-Smacking Fish & Chip to Lobsters, you will be in for a treat here!
1. Irish Trio of Oyster
What better way to start a seafood feast than with the star of the restaurant – the Irish Oyster. Air-flown from Ireland weekly, diners are guaranteed to enjoy only the freshest and best tasting oysters there are.
In this case, the Irish Trio of Oyster is a signature dish that the restaurant exclusively put together for TABLEAPP ELITE members only. The dish consists of one of each of the Gallagher Specials, Irish Premium and Tragheanna Bay oyster. After trying them, we must admit that the oysters were truly amazing with each possesses its very own unique flavours.

2. Roasted Mix Seafood
Coming in hot was the second signature dish, the mouth-watering Roasted Mix Seafood roasted to perfection in the rare Bertha charcoal oven. We were told that the Bertha oven was only available in a handful of restaurants in KL. So, lucky for us!
As soon as the dish was served, it already got us drooling with its tantalizing aromas from the fresh herbs used. And within minutes, nothing was left but a slice of bread to soaked up all the seafood-infused butter sauce. Yum!
The flavours and freshness of the seafood were on point and I personally couldn’t get past how delicious the juicy mussels and plump clams were. On top of that, we really enjoy the variety of seafood in this signature dish including prawns, salmon, squid and fish (chef’s selection).
3. Sunday Buffet Lunch (food only)
For those who are really craving for a seafood feast, we would definitely recommend the Sunday Buffet Lunch at Southern Rock Seafood. Accompanied with live music, the restaurant features a plethora of seafood dishes featuring a whole Bertha roast fish, seafood paella, live mussel cooking, fish & chips and more!
If we have to choose a favourite dish, it would be the mussels cooked in two different flavours, green curry and white wine. On itself, the green curry was very flavourful but because of that, it overpowered the mussels. On the other hand, the white wine complimented the freshness of the mussels perfectly.
Coming in a close second was the fish & chip. It is prepared to order and uses Barramundi fish fillet which was delightful! A combination of crunchy exterior and flaky fish. The only regret we had was not ordering more of it.
