Excellent Nyonya dishes. We followed the recommendation and ordered their set menu as well as the beef redang and chicken rolls.

The menu is local, authentic, not a lot of veggie choice, but everything veggie that I had, was awesome! The rest of the group are a set menu and were served fish, prawns, beef, chicken.....all topped off with red rice pudding. The juices are blended and worth a try. Good find, and we came with friends who live in Malaysia.... More

I can say I have come here a few times and every time the food is wonderful and reasonable price. Should try the sambal it's a kicker . The only problem is the parking . It's hectic and hard to park unless your lucky . It's worth every penny spend here .

Very authentic place, perfect to discover Nyonya cuisine. It is simple but qualitative. Attentive service. Fair prices. As for alcoholic beverages, only beer is available. Captain chicken curry was the top. Loved also chicken lambak rolls. Very popular place among the locals and expats, think to book!

My local APAC colleagues hosted a team dinner here tonight! The service was amazing and the food, which was typical nyonya style cuisine, was just OUTSTANDING! I highly recommend this place and would give this place 10 stars if I could!

Delicious home-style cooking. Nyonya cuisine is fusion food -- a blend of Chinese, Malaysian, and Thai. Theirs Nyonya style is more influenced with Thai flavors (think lemongrass and kaffir lime leaves in Tom Yum and Thai curry). Must try the Kapitan Curry. Great food and super friendly service for locals and tourists.

We had the special fish with achar, a dish that is difficult to find outside, lettuce wrap, sesame oil chicken, petai belachan and black glutinous desert! We had barley with winter melon drink!!

This is one of the highly recommended nyonya restaurants in Penang. In general the food is good. We had the asam prawns, otak-otak, ju hu char, kapitan chicken, inche kabin and sambal he bee. Serving sizes are on the smaller side. The only downside is that it does not serve pork, so some of the traditional items like tau yu... More
