The tv crew were filming at the restaurant but the owner gave us a table on the terrace and explained the menu. We had a wonderful meal and the staff were all extremely friendly and helpful.

My husband and I chose the set menu. It came up to RM 72 for 2 persons without drinks. The set menu includes rice, assam pineapple fish (the fish is stingray but you can choose the pomfret for an extra charge), hee peow soup, a choice of one chicken dish (curry kapitan, peranakan fried chicken or soya sauce chicken), cuttlefish...

We were recommended this restaurant by a Penang resident and Ivy's did not disappoint. We were a large group (11 diners) but got good advice to order the set meal for fewer people, and then order a few extra dishes for everyone to share. The quantity and variety was just right. Standout dishes were the inche kabin, kari kapitan and... More

Food taste really good and the service is tip top in a very cozy place. The owner is a very friendly and humble man. Nothing is a trouble for him and food was served really quickly.

Our 3-generation family of 9 went on New Year's Eve 2016 to usher in 2017. Thanks to other food reviewers from Trip Advisor, it was the best Penang Nyonya food we have had in a long while. We were recommended a set menu for 5 pax consisting of lobak (deep-fried meat roll); hae bee hiam (spicy dried shrimp), ju hu... More

Ordered the sampler set that comes with dessert! Simply delicious. We added the otah which was additional. It's a waste they do not serve pork. We heard because the premise is owned by a malay landlord so out of respect, they do not serve pork. The curry chicken is so fragrant! Totally awesome. The snapper is tasty too. The assam... More

Came here at 2pm and the table is still full but we are seated quickly. The food is good and portion is generous. Price is really reasonable. 65 rm for 2 pax and additional 15 to upgrade the fish. Loved the lor bak, the inchi kabin chicken and one other menu that we eat by wrapping it with vegetables, forget... More

We ate at Ivy's on one of our three nights in Penang. We had the day’s Special Dinner menu (2 pax RM 65). All of our food and drinks tasted great. Mr. Dragon was a very pleasant host, who was very informative about the various dishes and we got to chat about different topics as well. We had the Silver... More
