Dessert and appetisers, and some of the signature dishes were good. Breakfast menu was just ok. The roti canai was average, and would be better if it came with dhal curry. Nasi lemak had not enough sambal and egg, and if you want to go for value add, it's better to upgrade it to a really good seafood sambal than... More

Not bad, but just very ordinary food in an atmosphere that was pleasant but didn't say much about where it is. Could have been anywhere in any vaguely tropical resort. Maybe if Penang all gets a bit much for you, come here and look at some brown furniture and listen to lite jazz classics and imagine you are somewhere else.... More

Penang is all about street food I know, but if you get tired of the heat and the bustle, this is a great place to get away from it all and have a really great meal in a comfortable, air-conditioned setting. Highly recommended!

Stopped by for a drink over the weekend, and was debating whether to have some food. Did not - in part put off by all the sulking waiting staff... who were at the same time unhelpful. Did not help that they gave me the wrong amount of change for the bill. Cafes in this part of Georgetown are plenty, and... More

We had done 3 nights of food halls with great Hawker food. We wanted something different, so this quiet romantic place fitted the bill. Close to Eastern and Orient Hotel, cost £22 for two. Food excellent.

We stopped for lunch here because of the Trip Advisor reviews. The place is beautiful. The outdoor dining is lush and tropical. We chose to eat inside with awesome aircon since it was a really hot day. The food is pricey for Penang but very good. I had a prawn/chicken and noodle salad which was very nice. My partner had...

We stopped by for a quick lunch and ordered Asian pasta and pie tee. Not only was the service fast, staff was really friendly without being intruding. Would love to have a nice long supper or lunch here sometime! The location is great as the street is not a busy one and decor is very tasteful and appropriate for the... More
