I don't think my husband and I have ever had such a disastrous restaurant experience, certainly not in Penang. We were seated, given menues and our small order was taken quickly but that was the end of it. We sat and waited and waited for our simple water and Diet Coke. We watched other people who came in after us... More

It is really a charming ambience, high in the trees overlooking the ocean. The service is friendly and helpful. We ordered four mains and a starter to share. Although the place was empty the table was laid in a haphazzard manner and utensils were absent until we asked for them. The food was there within ten minutes of placing the... More

This place is awesome. The atmosphere is outstanding as it sits in the mountains above the sea. The staff were great and the food was pricey, but worth it. I had the pandas chicken and a massaman curry. Please do yourself a favour and go here. It is just above the Tropical Spice Garden.

We were there for dinner with my family. The food was ok. We were there mainly for the view, however it was a rainny day which the day got dark earlier than usual. So we didn't get to enjoy the view as we expected. The only area for parking is by the road side and be prepared to walked up... More

The restaurant had a good ambience, located slightly elevated from the ground among the trees. Food was average because I've had better thai food for the same amount of money spent.

As it was 2pm and we were feeling "peckish" we decided to have a quick bite here. A restaurant at the end of the Tropical Spice garden in Penang. My initial thought was will be an overpriced tourist trap with at best mediocre food How wrong I was. Food was reasonably priced as were the drinks and when the food... More

The restaurant offers amazing beach views from the outdoor seating area. The staff are very welcoming. The restaurant has a large menu with a lot of food from Malaysia and Thailand. The portions sizes are pretty large! The 12pcs Thai tapas was very good.

Thank matt9478
