The owners are very friendly and helpful with recommending dishes. This place only takes cash. Don't be put off by the first impression of the place.

A very lovely lady greeted us and as per her recommendation we had Thai Fish and Chicken Curry. Probably one of the meals I've ever had in Malaysia! Friendly and cozy environment and yummy food, affordable as well. If you're in Penang you must go and try their dishes xx

Imagine yourself relaxing in your living room filled with eclectic adornments and furniture. Then imagine yourself enjoying hefty servings of yummy salt and pepper squid and black pepper pork ribs. Take the dining experience to a living room vibe. Nice? Like it!
