We visited this restaurant on a couple of occasions and were treated like royalty. The food was excellent as were the staff. Drinks were reasonably priced with plenty of choice. The staff were justifiably proud of the garden and gave us a tour on one of our visits to show us the variety of plants and flowers. Highly recommend.

The venue is like a little slice of heaven, removed from the street markets and chaos. It is very tastefully decorated while sticking to its Malaysian roots. Stunning gardens and ponds, bamboo and waterfalls of various foliage. Paradise. We were in a party of 30 and had a pre-organised set menu. Food was quick, delicious and plentiful. Staff were accommodating,... More

Have been here at least 6 times and will revert. Food is good! Everyone will find something they like. Good quality and tasty food. Nice environment. Staff is service minded and service normaly fast. Place could be packed in the evenings - so book your table, specially during high seasons. Price is reasonable for Penang and this stile. Don't miss... More

It would be hard to fault the ambiance or the wait staff standards at Ferringhi Food Garden. Upon entry we thought we were in for a terrific night, however, the food didn't live up to the standard set by the rest of the restaurant. The Beef Yellow Curry was flavoursome but the meat was very badly cooked; tough as can... More

We went here just before sunset and experienced the garden lighting up for the evening. Romantic and relaxed. Extensive menu. We stuck to the Malaysian cuisine - try the pineapple fried rice, squid with dried chillie, beef red curry and wine in the huge glasses! Very attentive waiters. Hidden gem - must visit!

The Ferringhi Garden was in a booklet of top ten restaurants and it did not disappoint! Great garden setting with good menu choice. The food was well presented and we had a dessert; the only good one we had! The staff were friendly and efficient but not in your face. Probably the most expensive meal we had in Batu but... More

Due to the comments about high prices I was a bit hesitating about going there. Actually, its not as expensive as we expected, my seafood carbonara was ~25 RM and absolutely worth it! very good seafood quality and the size was perfect. staff is very friendly and the atmosphere and food experience is unique. we will come back tomorrow.

This is a largish area with food stalls around the sides selling all types of ethnic and European foods with tables and chairs in the centre. You have a walk around, choose your stall, order the food, giving your table number, sit down and wait! The food is paid for when it arrives.The good thing is that if there are... More

I see many people on here are mixing up the two places. The better restaurant is Ferringhi Garden NOT Ferringhi Food Garden. Please take note.
