We've visited this little place twice so far and both times the food has been excellent. The staff are very attentive and helpful in choosing if you are not familiar with the menus. The even recommend dishes to compliment if you are not sure. The toilets are exceptionally clean, which is a must for me. We will be back before... More

Don't expect a fancy restaurant, but it's unique. If you happen to walk in on a Friday night you might experience a Jam session where even Mick Jagger would love to join in.......! Amy and Ben are great hosts with a real interest in their guests, whether they are tourist or residents. They care! Honest Food is served, home cooking... More

The owners of this little bar are the perfect hosts. The atmosphere is very welcoming and friendly. We ate here several evenings throughout our stay and found the food excellent both in quality and a great price. We would certainly eat here again on our return to Penang.

I had last visited this place 2 years ago, when I was living/working in Tanjong Bungah. Always friendly, always good quality, always helpful. The same owners and the same good feeling about the place. I never did a review, before, so I need to put that right. Try it, I'm sure you'll like it. Real BACON in the breakfasts, good... More

If you go here, and you should, the Chicken Capitan is a must. One of the best I have ever eaten. Cosy little restaurant, don't look much for the World, but be sure not to miss it.

Very tasty dinner at a very reasonable price. I loved the Nonya curry prawn dish especially but everything was great and they serve large Tiger beers in big zip up stubby holders. $110MYR for plenty of food and a few beers. Atmosphere is pleasant and staff very friendly. Definitely worth the visit and I look forward to returning to try... More

We tried to get to this restaurant 3 times on our holiday to Penang (be aware closed on Wednesdays) but it was 3rd time lucky and we'll worth the longish walk from the Shangri La resort. The food is great, recommend the Beef Rendang, chicken satay appetiser and deep fried ice cream which tastes divine. The hosts are lovely and... More

Easily the best meal so far in Malaysia. The owner was so helpful, explaining the dishes, asking what we liked and then suggesting something she thought we'd enjoy. Fish in garlic, vegetable curry and beef rendang are all recommended, we'll definitely be returning. Also a bottle of Chardonnay RM75, which is very good compared to the RM140 at Hard Rock... More

The owners Amy Nd Ben were delightfully attentive with excellent food and wine recommendations. . An affordable night complete with thunderstorms nd rain but the owners made up for it. Our best dining experience on what is a regular holiday destination for our family and friends. Will be back here again
