A great museum/restaurant in penang. By far one of the beter places to go to when looking for european food. Good and friendly service.The museum shows à rich history of penang with the main focus on the family of Yeap Chor ee. Very interesting how big of an influence one person can have. All in all à good restaurant and an interesting museum to visit when in Penang!

Had a visit around 2.30 PM before their last order for lunch time, only two of us are dining in while most tables are reserved for dinner. Good environment for anniversary celebration. The smoked salmon salad is very tasty, order together with the pizza, chicken nuggets (for kids) and two desserts include creme brulee and crepe suzette. The chicken nuggets are more like maryland chicken but in nuggets style. The chicken pizza is not too dry, but a very small part is overbaked but I think is good overall. If you think you are small eater, do not order the crepe suzette cause I have to take away the chicken nuggets after finished the pizza. The creme brulee texture is quite thick compare to the one in Via Pre but both are good for me. Both creme brulee and crepe suzette are served with a scope of ice cream. You will find the surprise at the bottom of the ice cream which they will put little chen pi slice (if not mistaken). Spend another hour visiting the back of the restaurant which is a museum.

Our family had dinner here during our stay in Penang, and we were gladly surprised by the levels of service and the quality of some of the dishes we ordered. The seafood linguine, the teriyaki salmon and the desserts were really good.

The staff were attentive and helpful and they even entertained our 5-month old baby, so we could enjoy dinner. This was a lovely gesture, and much appreciated.

We had guests from Europe and they were not used to some of the local spices and flavours in the Nyonya dishes. But in my opinion the food was very good, but on the expensive side.
