I was introduced to this restaurant by my Penang relatives. We were recommended by the restaurant to rake their set meal. So trusting the staff, we took it plus added in perut ikan, achar, sambal hebee. I share the same comments by one of the reviewers. The food came very fast and we can tell that the food may be...

This is a nice cosy eating place with lots of competition in Jalan Chow Thye. We were a bit suprised how fast the dishes came and when I came to taste my chicken curry Nyonya Style I found out. The dish was just warm the curry sauce and the chicken which was chewy (should not be like that). If in... More

The food was very delicious, especially chicken Kapitan curry and the prawn with tamarind was very nice and crunchy. We dined outside at the veranda since it... More

Ivy's Nyonya cuisine is a small restaurant in Penang, with home-cooked Nyonya food. The menu presents a good choice in meat, fish and vegetables. The food is delicious - I cannot stress this enough - freshly prepared and clean. On top of that you have a good selection of beverages, including fresh juices. The restaurant is walking distance from the... More

This little place offers good nyonya food, at reasonable price. They have set meals of 5 courses + dessert at 65 MR per person. The nyonya chicken was so good, as was the fish maw soup and the baby sting ray with pineapples. There was also a dish of very tasty shrimps and a good. Highly recommended.

It was crowded when we reached. I went with my hubby parents and relatives. There were like 18 of us. They tried their best to help us settle down. I would rate the nyonya food 8.9/10. It has been a long time since I tasted gd nyonya food. Before this I only tried nyonya food from Singapore. Must try if... More

We arrived just as Ivy's opened on a sunday evening. The owner greeted us, remembered we'd eaten here before, and started asking us what sort of food we'd like. Last time, we weren't happy with the prawns, so we mentioned we'd like to try something else, and ended up with an array of dishes which were all 100%, even kangkung... More

We walked to Ivy's Nyonya Cuisine restaurant. It isn't far from town. We walked home, too, after a delicious and filling meal from the set menu. It was a great way for two people to sample a range of Nyonya cooking: A clear, delicate broth soup; shredded vegetables, wrapped in a cos lettuce leaf and dipped in a very (VERY)... More
