Description: Long Beach is a collection of street stalls surrounding the sitting area. It is located outside and offers many cuisines including Malaysian. In the area there are not so many restaurants offering Malay food so I thought it appropiate to add this 'restaurant' to the listings, although most would probably not class it as a conventional one!

“Good cheap food”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 13, 2013

Always give this place a visit whilst in Penang. Always very busy. We notice when we are on the bus traveling to LB all the restaurants are dead. You can see why when you get to LB. Who is going to pay crazy prices in the restaurants when you can eat at LB so cheap?

The only thing (since our last visit in 2012) is that some of the stalls no longer use metal cutlery. You have have those awful plastic ones. Plastic chairs, tables and plates I can live with but plastic cutlery - noooooooo!

Most certainly visit LB if we visit Penang again

“Yummy and Cheap!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed December 11, 2013

Great variety! Pick what you want. They bring it to you and you pay them. Very reasonable prices. Chicken satay 10RM, spring roll 3RM, etc.

“A Batu Ferringhi institution”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 10, 2013

One of the highlights of a trip to Batu Ferringhi is eating at the Long Beach. There is a wide selection of foods available - Malaysian, Chinese, Indian. All of the stall are well established and are the same ones that were there on my first visit in 2004. Since my last visit, many of the restaurants on the strip have closed, so the choice of eateries is greatly reduced, so we ended up eating at the Long Beach most evenings, and were never spoilt for choice.

The highlights are the satay stall (best chicken satay I've eaten), North Indian curry (try the tandoori chicken and the butter chicken), chinese (sizzling crispy prawn noodles from the stall at the back, crispy chicken with chilli sauce from the chinese stall on the left,homemade spring rolls (you need to get there early before they sell out) and char keow noodles.

The drinks waitresses are friendly and remember the regulars, so are ready with your drinks as soon as you sit down. The place is always busy in the evening and you are likely to see many familiar faces there every night. Not to be missed

“Enough Good Food to keep us happy!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed December 10, 2013

The Holkkien Mee, Char Kway Teow and Penang Laksa were good. Give the Satay, Prata and wanton mee a miss.
