Fantastic food!

Such beautiful food and fabulous Beef Rendang. The deep fried ice cream and banana fritters are the best. Our son enjoyed the most crispy fish and chips he has ever had. Thank you Amy and Ben for 2 awesome dinners during our trip. We will be back!!!

We dined here on a number of occasions on our last visit to Penang and found the food excellent on each visit. The staff were very friendly and accommodated us to find room inside as the rain started one night. The curries were beautiful and full on flavour. Live music on two of our visits with an Aussie guy on... More

I'm not a great fan of Malaysian food generally and am more inclined in these circumstances to place more importance in the atmosphere of a place. This is a small, informal but friendly restaurant, the proprietess being particularly charming and helpful. We enjoyed the Beef redang and Nasi goreng, and I was pleased to find Strongbow cider (canned). By the... More

I last reviewed this restaurant in 2013 and if anything from the reviews it seems to have got even more popular. We only managed two nights, the first being very busy and the second much quieter. The food was up to its usual excellent standard and the service good. The only slight reservation I have in view of past experiences... More

Our family came here for dinner. The staff was very friendly and the service was excellent. The prawn currie was amazing, and the beef with ginger was very good. My daughter wasn't crazy about her burger, so maybe western food isn't their forte .

One thing I will say if your a strongbow man like my husband you'll be glad to... More

To find here a genuine and honest rating is difficult. The place itself is nice, the staff is very welcoming and attentive. Actually the first time in Penang that I was asked how sweet I want the ordered ice tea. I ordered it only light sweetened and the waitress was waiting at the desk and have me try it in... More

This quaint little restaurant/bar situated on the main road through Batu Ferringhi is quite simply outstanding. The fact that it was the only restaurant which was actually busy speaks volumes and once you sit down and meet the hostess you'll see why. Outgoing and friendly, she made us feel at home immediately and even offered a suggestion when she felt... More
