The food and staff were both great :) I had king prawn chillie which was 'mind-blowing' and my wife had chicken curry which was excellent and had the 'home-made' feeling. All together this is a charming restaurant with great food at sensible prices. All the staff are brilliant and friendly. Would reccommend this place :) John and Thea

Recently had the pleasure of spending a couple of days on Penang again and ended up at this restaurant. Must say that the food was nice but at a price of some 2 - 2.5 times the 'going rate' for similar restaurants is the area it better be.
