“Best Chinese!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 28, 2013

This is one of Batu Fenrangi's best kept secrets. An open air restaurant that serves some of the best Chinese cuisine ever. All freshly cooked and excellent value.

“hidden gem”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 25, 2013

Don't be put off by the appearance of the place. There were four of us eating and we ordered about 10 dishes. The food was excellent and very cheap. The fried eggplant and black pepper chicken was fantastic. This Was one of the best places that we ate in the whole of Penang

“Great menu of local dishes”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 15, 2013

Sitting just of the street on a mottly selection of chairs and tables. This place is popular with more locals than 'ferrenghi' . Its just past the 7/11 about 5 minutes walk from the Rasa Sayang. A big meal for 2 with beers is about 60 MR if you are splahing out. Our first meal there was less than 30 MR. Watching the team prep and cook the food is real magic. Poetry in motion which never stops while the place is open. Realy tasty but if you choose the Tom Yom soup be prepared for it to be HOT!
