Description: The restaurant reflects a typical Bulgarian theme and layout where a cosy wooden bar on the mezzanine floor, stocks a variety of beverages – it is a great place to meet up with friends for drinks. The dining area in the lower level is a great setting for a truly romantic dinner with the area being separated into cosy nooks, with plenty of authentic Bulgarian knick-knacks, quaint wooden windows accented with lace curtains, and fireplaces. Making your way to the upper floor leads you to the function room. The Bulgarian theme is maintained by way of a countryside mural that stretches along the length of the room. This room also has a bar area and can be booked for private functions. Vintage Bulgaria Restaurant & Bar is proudly owned by a Bulgarian family living in Penang.

“Exotic Bulgarian food”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 5, 2012

Had the best pork ribs here! Nice ambiance and value for money. Vintage Bulgaria is a place for gathering with loved one, family and friends. Good service from the waiters and waitresses there. Will definitely visit again.

The food was amazing, the atmosphere was great all in all good place. Prices were reasonable and don't be scared to try everything because we went back 3 times.

“Great Bulgarian cuisine with a home-cooked feel”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 10, 2012

It took a bit of effort to find this restaurant but it was well worth it. We enjoyed a meal that included a wonderful fresh salad, a nice appetizer of bacon-wrapped cheese, and homemade Bulgarian sausages. The restaurant has a very pleasant feel and the service was prompt and attentive. It was my first go-round with Bulgarian food and I would defintely go back as the prices are extremely reasonable.

“"Ever been to a Bulgarian restaurant before?"”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 5, 2012

That's what I ask my guest to Penang because I hadn't until I lived across the road form one. Vintage Bulgaria is now a family favourite and not just for the food. That said the food is superb and especially the pork knuckle (one of the best in Penang), the lamb shank in brown sauce, and of course the beef stroganoff. But Vintage Bulgaria is more because in a country where service is hit and miss, Bulgaria doesn't miss a beat. The service staff are welcoming and know the menu so they tell you what is not available before you order aaaand you get your meals served at the same time so your party can eat together. Our family loves it and totally recommend it.
