“This place gives Penang a bad name”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed October 20, 2012

love Penang food. But I hate Gurney Drive (restaurant) in Suntec Singapore. This place is an atrocity to the wonderful flavour combinations that encompass Penang food.

Char kway teow and assam laksa were deeply lacking in subtle spice or interesting flavor. Both were mediocre and were a complete disappointment. It was simply gross.

This place sucks. My suggestion would be that you take your precious money and go elsewhere. This is the true truth as I say it as it is…

“Good Lunch Spot”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 1, 2012

Gurney is a good spot to grab a quick lunch. The food tastes okay and the prices are quite reasonable for a sit-down restaurant.

I went here in a group of 5 at 12:30p and we got a table right away. I ordered a Penang Curry and found that they gave a good serving of chicken and potatoes and the curry was a good level of spicy. The taste overall was just average however for only $5.90, it was very good value.

“Penang food in the city”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 17, 2012 via mobile

The menu were all sporting Penang food similar to those you find in the actual Penang Gurney Drive. The price of course is SGD. and expensive but considering you don't have to fly to Penang, it is okay.

Tried the fried Koay teow, lor bak, rojak, laksa. All good and almost like Penang.

Very busy during lunch time. So, go early.
