Description: Noordin Street, or Lebuh Noordin, is the second road south of the Prangin Canal. It is within a city area known today as the Seven Streets Precinct, a working class neighbourhood which developed out of the hodge podge of kampung houses in the late 19th century. The Hokkiens call Noordin Street Ji Tiau Lor, short for Ji Tiau Lor Koay Kangnga, meaning the second road after the Prangin Canal. Noordin Street is the only street in the Seven Streets Precinct to be named after a Muslim, in this case Habib Marican Noordin, the Indian Muslim merchant who was one of the benefactors of the Kapitan Keling Mosque. Noordin Street was famous in the 1950s and 60s as the home of the Wembley Cinema; an amusement centre where entertainment as different as bangsawan performances, movies, ronggeng parties, bumper cars, billiard parlours, pinball arcades and dance halls attracted throngs of Penangites. It's the Wembley which has inspired the design and feel of Noor & Dean’s, a celebration of popular period Asian cinema, stars and fashion of that era. Noor & Dean’s was a conglomerate of a peranakan culture with a touch of colonial British times. Dining in Noor & Dean’s Café is a stroll down memory lane. The atmosphere boasts collectibles depicting historical community of yesteryears Penang, all accompanied by a casual and tasteful menu ranging from favourite local delicacies to Western. Breakfast, lunch and dinner is served seven days a week.

Great food, attractive young men serving with delightful smiles! Good selection of mainly Western fusion meals. I had the lamb cutlets, cooked to perfection with creamy mashed potatoes and stir-fried veg. Delicious!
