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... read more

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.

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.

We were stunned when we walked by this beautiful garden restaurant, and decided to have dinner here at least once during our stay in Batu Ferringhi. Were prepared to pay a fortune since it looked so fancy, but thought it was worth it because of the atmosphere. However, it wasn't that expensive..! Yes, you could of course get cheaper food...

I could not come to Penang without eating here. The food is easily the best in Penang. The staff are attentive but discreet. The setting cool and serene. The place never disappoints a real gem of a restaurant and I for one hope nothing ever changes. Naturally I will be back soon can't wait.
