"The place was quite packed with lots of customers during the peak hours e.g. lunch, dinner time. So, advisable to go earlier, to avoid those peak hours. As for reservation, I don't feel like making reservation everytime going for a meal. I prefer walking in to a restaurant at any time of the day. I ..."heard that it has the same management with Delicious, the one at Straits Quay, not sure it was true though.
Environment was comfy & classic, well decorated! We ordered a few items so that we could share and taste most of the dishes. I love the most among the food ordered was Pad Thai spagghetti, and it tasted a bit like Char Kuey Teow. haha~ As for the dessert, we ordered Rocky Road Choco Peanut Cake. It was good at first bite, but because we were all feeling too full, after a few spoonful, we were all couldn't gulp in anymore spoonful as we think it was too sweet in the end.
Anyway, the food was kinda pricey~ But since the food was good, then it's all good. Of course, I won't try to visit...

"The name "HUGS" or House of Udang Galah for a Restaurant is attention getting enough. When you walk in, you feel like you are entering the private parlour of a Penang Heritage House, with ornate wooden carving, subtle but not garish.
The food is truly delightful to the eye as well as to the taste b..."uds. The starter came not in the usual platter of 4 Seasons cold dish. It was more like a flower arrangement but each interesting morsel revealed a treat.
The seafood soup came in a generous individual portion. The chicken is unusual to say the least. The humble chicken roast was encrusted with what looked like crunchy garlice mixed with cereal and the dipping sauce gave the roast chicken a lift.
The signature dish of Udang Galah was delightful. The udang was fresh and big and the sauce was piquant. I also liked the grouper steamed in a tangy curry sauce - you could slurp up the delicious sauce.
The service is good but the owner, Mr Chew, a most amiable man should go round to chat to the ...

"I first came here as a primary school boy growing up in Penang with my mum and have been there many times since. After living abroad for over 15 years I often ran out of time to drop in on my trips home.. I had to come to Penang Road for some errand this trip and decided to drop in for a quick lunch..."..
The place is as I remembered it apart from foreigners serving drinks. That's fine as drinks aren't what they are known for hence no authenticity lost there. However for the important stuff, they are run by family who have made those individual dishes for generations. Three things I had this time which I personally still love, Hokkien mee (Penang Prawn noodles), Char Kuey Teow (friend flat rice noodles) and Penang Assam Laksa.. Those are the 3 things I missed most living abroad as they are mostly not worth eating if you aren't having them in Penang. Only a true Penangite will be able to tell all the fine differences since this is so much part of our upbringing.
I agree you can get j...
