Food is ridiculously overpriced while the food quality is nothing to brag. Had the worst mushroom soup here, worst than a canned soup. Tenderloin was good. Ambiance was the only thing worth paying for here.

Fine dining without being too expensive. Eaten here at least a dozen times and never had anything but good food. My wife and I will go here by ourselves or we will take our Western Visitors here who are nervous or anxious about dirty noisy Makans.
If you have someone you want to treat to good food with soft gentle music and a clean respectable environment then this is the place

The building is beautiful and the food is quite expensive so you would expect it to be quite tasty but it is not. It is very nicely presented but tastes very bland. We left feeling we could have gotten better food for a cheaper price from most other restaurants.

From the outside, the restaurant's exterior facade does not look like much. Inside however, the restaurant boast of gorgeous interior that blends modem chic with old school charm without loosing its core Penang heritage. The service was good, though the foreign waiter's accent was a little difficult to understand at times. The menu was quite a delight and we had a good time exploring its diverse offerings. All in all the meal was satisfactory, the price reasonable and the service good. I take it to be good because a lot of the restaurants customers are locals, Penang Lang. There is also a nice little museum at the back to explore after the meal

Food overpriced and did not meet my expectation. Only thing makes me satisfied was the decoration of restaurant.

Ordered wagyu cheek which was quite pricey and I expected the taste could be better. However, it was overdone and its gravy tasted like can food which I can easily buy in supermarket. Disappointed and will not go back to this restaurant again.
