“Delicious food”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 20, 2013

You need to make a booking as the place is very small but it is well worth it. The food was very tasty and the lady that served us was very helpful in choosing what to have. Spent about 60 MYR for two, including drinks.

“Tasty”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 4, 2013

First time trying Nyonya dishes and it was good. Very tasty. A bit expensive for younger travelers. It took us (two person) RM114.5 for 4 dishes, 3 drinks and a dessert. However, love the restaurant for their helpful staffs, good atmosphere and nice cooking. I'll recommend it to other visitors to Penang.

“Best nonya food in Penang”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 30, 2013

Have been here 4 times. 3 out of 4 times it was very good, so I shall give them the benefit of the doubt. The food is authentic and very tasty. The locals come here, so that tells you a lot.
