Always busy and you are likely to have to share a table.
We shared with a lovely elderly Malaysian couple who agreed that we could eat with them and they had travelled around the world and to London twice so we had plenty to talk about.
They lived in Georgetown but their 1st time here - they said food was fantastic so we knew we were in for a treat.
Nothing pretentious here plastic chairs and tables and plastic plates but the food - wow!
We had 1 large Tiger and a Diet Coke - medium fried rice - was lovely with prawn and pork pieces, fired onion on top Yum! - medium was too much for the 2 of us
Hubby had fried red snapper (whole fish) with onion and ginger sauce - delicious and I had 5 butter prawns - dry fried but with a lovely buttery nest around them - never had anything like them before - they were fab - we had ordered pork belly but they forgot this and I was pleased as we could not have eaten it - we were full and all for 101 RM - fantastic value and tasty food - we will be back

We walked for about 5 minutes from our hotel-Golden Sands resort. The food was good! We ordered a spread of food and the best dishes were the eggplant (deep fried wedges coated in some dry spicy sauce) and the sambal fried rice which had a spicy flavour and a wok aroma. The spare ribs were edible (not the best) , local claypot tofu was super yummy, the sweet and sour fish was not fried well and the ginger onion chicken was tender and tasty. Overall, for the price and value we would come back.

Every time we visit Batu Ferringhi we look forward to visiting this restaurant, the food is fabulous and always freshly cooked, it's always full of locals which is a good sign, definitely one of our favourites.
