Great food (Typical Penang), good ambience and reasonable service and price. The view over the water is very nice too. No beer (halal) is the only down side, recommended.

After a conference, about 14 of us, 7 per table spend about 50 RM each. Quite a spread. The Yam was nice but the duck soup was weird. Overall average dining experience with friendly staff and lovely night view.

This is my 2nd time dining there. The service was sub-optimal. There was a lot of renovation work around the restaurant. The food was as good as ever, and definitely better than the ranking by TripAdvisor.
