Here’s what some of our customers have to say

I have never liked non-spicy otahs because up till now because they all tasted like ordinary fish cake to me. But THIS one is very very different. It’s spicy and savoury without the heat and the texture is soft and smooth. It has that quality about it that you just have to down five pieces before you can start thinking about stopping. I have never tasted non-spicy otah this good before! Hey I think I almost prefer it over the normal spicy one! Really must try lah! 4.5/5

My all time favourite was their Mackerel Otah and Nasi Lemak, not too strong coconut fragrance and the nice smooth texture of the rice.

Still One Of The Best.

Gorgeously green parcels of Muar-styled Mackarel Otak-Otak (wrapped in banana leaves grilling brilliantly and wafting the aromas of a thousand spices into the night air.

The otahs made from here are quite different from the others. It is the broader version and is also much expensive compare to those normal size otah. The secret in these otah is the owner actually used lots of mackerel fish (which is consider the premium version fish) in making their otah which taste more soft and sweet. These otah are also not charcoal cooked till with the ‘very burnt’ flavour as they wanted their customers to have that actual taste of their otah without the ‘very burnt’ flavour blocking to it. I like it with bread and also with nasi lemak. These are just so delicious!

Wrapped in banana leaf, the fish paste was delectably springy in texture, and it packed a considerable amount of heat with hints of coconut milk and spices, complete with an aroma from the leaf. There’s also a good portion of fish chunks in this moreish morsel. One stick was definitely not enough though we didn’t have stomach space for more.

Otak in banana leaf is deliciously yummy! For tourist info, otak is a South East Asian delight, popular in Singapore, Malaysia & Indonesia, and consist of fish paste with spices wrapped & grilled in fragrant banana leaves. Sedap!

Halal. Famous in Singapore for their mouth-watering fish and prawn otah, bundled in banana leaf and grilled.


Taste is definitely different from normal white otah. I usually dont like white otah coz its like fish cake, and dry. But Nam San’s is different. It is soft and smooth, like the chilli otah but without the spice. 2 thumbs up! Even my kids loved it. Wont be buying white otah from anywhere else!
