So this is what we had: 2 plates of rice with cabbage and half salted egg - RM9.20 * 2 Chicken curry - RM6.80 (one portion) Kambing... More

This place is disgusting and the fact that they managed to escape from the health department for 70 years is beyond ridiculous. That goes to show how thoughtless these people are for the safety of the people dining here and in general. The size of the rat droppings found indicates how long it's been left there, right under the kitchen... More

As famous as it sounds... today it was found by the Penang Health dept... infested with rodents from the kitchen due to uncleaniness. Yet more and more people love to visit such places during their stay in Penang...nasi kandar Line clear...nasi kandar Beratur... Setup by the alleyway...where people parked anywhere without thinking of others for their favorites. A favourite congested... More

Growing up, Line Clear is a legend nasi kandar. Situated at the iconic Penang Road, it is easy to spot and has became an icon of Penang food. However, feud between the family who operated the nasi kandar means they have to change operator of the restaurant every 3 years. Hence losing the originality as cook are changed to often... More

We had the tandoori chicken naan dish which was great. The nasi kandar is outside and very popular. Next time I will try the fish head curry which looks amazing.

We were referred to Line Clear by a couple of locals as the best Nasi Kandar in Penang. We found the flavours to be quite bland and it appeared that the curry and chicken had been sitting around for quite a while, perhaps contributing to the bland flavour. It was OK without being great, but doubtful that we will go... More
