First visited 4 years ago and it has not changed. Lots of choice of foods from many vendors. "Entertainment" on stage during the evening. Drink sellers can be "over enthusiastic" What you see is what you get.

We had a wonderful evening! It's a great way of trying local dishes👍 The kids can try a bit of everything without worrying if they don't like it! Clean, and friendly helpful staff and only a short walk from our hotel

Well I don't remember seeing any gardens let alone a red one, but: the choices of so many different national signature dishes from the seemingly endless array of food stores, the vibrant atmosphere and friendly service especially from those refilling your bottles of beer by the bucket, may well explain my slightly affected ability to seek out items of a...

Excellent food, friendly cleaners, cheerful atmosphere and reasonably priced. Just returned from Penang and now planning the next trip, better exercise for the next few months to lose the weight I put on from eating the crispy duck, delicious!.

Personally, we find the Claypot Frog Porridge delicious, price reasonable too. Fried Kway Tiao is edible but the Loh Bak (assorted Meat) not nice. A place where I will visit once only.

We had Vietnamese spring rolls, Chinese spring rolls and cooked bok choy. Then we had some Mexican enchiladas. so many choices of different kinds of cuisines. You get a table, they bring your food to the table while your drinks are also being brought to the table. A fun experience!

I dropped in here a few times for evening meals. Open quite late. Fun with many locals and live entertainment (band and singers on small central stage). A variety of cuisines cooked fresh at the many food stalls including Malay, Thai, Chinese, Japanese, etc. Reasonable prices. Okay food. Order and pay for food at stall and give them your table...

Read all about Red Garden before coming to Penang and I can see why its so popular. Great food at very reasonable prices and the variety is mind blowing. You can't have all of it in one go so we went back the next night!

It's always nice to eat outdoors and this place offers that. It's close to the usual tourist hangouts/accommodation and we felt safe walking back to our hotel even we stayed on late.
