Had lunch with family of 4. Got bitten by mosquitoes 3mins after we sat down. Dinning area is their living room (small). The restaurant owner is very nice but we reckon quite a home cook taste. And honestly, not really impress by the taste.

For the amount of food we had, 8 dishes & 1 dessert, it was value for money. The owner was very friendly and chatted with us on and off. Makes you feel like dining in someone's home instead of a restaurant. Would highly recommend this place to everyone visiting Penang and wants to try home-cooked authentic nyonya food. Thumbs-up!

There's definitely love that goes into the cooking here. The soya sauce chicken and fish maw soup are a hit with the young kids. Otak-otak was freshly steamed and took awhile to arrive. But worth the wait. Only one wait staff on the evening we visited, think he's the owner as well. Highly efficient and friendly. If you like home... More

A little pricy. So so only but still better than those so called famous hawker foods. Can give it a try if you love spicy foods. Quite cozy environment. Hidden place from roads

Decent local cuisine and friendly service. It serves worthy Nonya styled cooking. The Nasi Lemak (coconut milk rice served with curry and fried fish, prawns) was good. The fried fish (need to pre-order) was excellent, crispy and so tasty.

I tried the fixed-price menu; although it was meant for a minimum of two persons and I was solo, the proprietors kindly accommodated me at a very reasonable price. There was a variety of tasty dishes, most of which were the not the usual Nyonya items I had tried elsewhere. Portions were generous and I was quite full; the grilled... More
