I've seen someone recommend it on TripAdvisor and wanted to give it a try. The Barramundi is totally worth it!

The baramundi was excellent! Their calamansi drink is refreshing, and their burgers are surprisingly good if you skip the sweet chili sauce.

Visited this place one morning for breakfast because of the tripadvisor rating and also because its quite near where we were staying. I don't get it...were there something we missed, maybe...because the food was mediocre at best not unlike the breakfast buffet at a cheap motel. Staff wasn't very helpful and seemed a bit confused and clueless about the menu.... More

We had been to Noor & Dean's and loved their food. Our last visit was in May and decided to visit our favourite kafe in Penang. The cafe has downsized, the magnificent setup and interior has gone missing, so does their original authentic malaysian/international menu. The food was rather different......some menus from the past was maintained but never the same.... More

This restaurant feels like an Oasis of calm after a busy day in the busy streets of Georgetown. The food is delicious and the staff friendly. I definitely recommend the deserts! :-)

Gado Gado is a healthy and filling choice, vegetables served with a peanut butter sauce! The Ice cream treat is great without the red beans!

Noordin Street, or Lebuh Noordin, is the second road south of the Prangin Canal. It is within a city area known today as the Seven Streets Precinct, a working class neighbourhood which developed out of the hodge podge of kampung houses in the late 19th century. The Hokkiens call Noordin Street Ji Tiau Lor, short for Ji Tiau Lor Koay Kangnga, meaning the second road after the Prangin Canal. Noordin Street is the only street in the Seven Streets Precinct to be named after a Muslim, in this case Habib Marican Noordin, the Indian Muslim merchant who was one of the benefactors of the Kapitan Keling Mosque. Noordin Street was famous in the 1950s and 60s as the home of the Wembley Cinema; an amusement centre where entertainment as different as bangsawan performances, movies, ronggeng parties, bumper cars, billiard parlours, pinball arcades and dance halls attracted throngs of Penangites. It's the Wembley which has inspired the design and feel of Noor & Dean’s, a celebration of popular period Asian cinema, stars and fashion of that era. Noor & Dean’s was a conglomerate of a peranakan culture with a touch of colonial British times. Dining in Noor & Dean’s Café is a stroll down memory lane. The atmosphere boasts collectibles depicting historical community of yesteryears Penang, all accompanied by a casual and tasteful menu ranging from favourite local delicacies to Western. Breakfast, lunch and dinner is served seven days a week.
