Nice ambience cafe that occupied two Penang old shop houses with nostalgia peranakan decoration. The beautiful backyard and balcony are providing peaceful backstreet view of Penang. It served both local and western food. Among the serving dishes, recommended for claypot nasi lemak and ikan bakar...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....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!

The place has warm cozy feeling which is a nice escape from outside with a bit high price. Service was nice. The western food is really good but the curry was just okay.

Dined tonight and loved it. Friendly staff, prompt service and meals were delicious. One of the best beef rendang I have eaten. Char Kway teow was light, fresh and superb. The restaurant is clean and tastefully decorated. Highly recommend this dining experience.

I'd been out all day, and really didn't relish eating in the Avenue 1 food court, so was delighted to find this café still open and serving food late at night. I had fried oysters ( can't remember the local name of the dish), which...More

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.
