We were a group of four and weren't extremely hungry so we decided to have entrees instead of mains and everything we chose was delicious. My friends shared 3 starters between them and I had veggie noodles and it was delicious. Service was fast and...More

I took friends here last week, as I'd eaten here several months ago. I've been coming to Penang since the mid-1980's. Penang used to be a foodie mecca, with great local food stalls everywhere. Over the past few years, much of the local food for...More

Nice find near the Blue Mansion. The place offers good-looking dishes and they all taste good! All platters are really nice for trying Penang dishes. Very nice place for lunch :)

The restaurant has a really nice location with a back yard. They offer Malaysian local food in a restauarnt atmosphere. The food was good and the staff was really friendly. But I recommend to enjoy the food markets insteat of the restaurant for local food.

We have visited this cafe twice. Comfortable seating inside ( air conditioned ) and out. Pleasant,attentive staff. The soft drinks, Mews madness and mango calamansi were very refreshing for a total price of approx £7.00 UK. Good place for a break. +447828417512

Nice ambience but food is not memorable and certainly not worth the price. I was here with my family of more than 10 persons during the chinese new year week (yes, this review is late). None of us were impressed with the food. Maybe it's...More

It's the only restaurant in Geogre town that I can eat curry (the others' curry is too strong for me) The rice with coconut milk is tasteful. Yummy salad. Expensive but worth it. The only minus: the restaurant is too hot outside but too cold...More
