Accompanied by sea breeze and sunset, we enjoyed the Thai style food in a restaurant surrounded by tree. Embrace the nature, forget about air-conditioners :)

All in all a good diversion but not a top tier restaurant. The food is better than average Thai food of all kinds. The restaurant has a marvelous setting. The staff is charming, hard working, and very accommodating but English challenged. I'm used to talking...More

The restaurant setting is unique for Penang and worth visiting if you don't mind a "long" drive specially on weekends since you have to pass through batu ferringhi. Make a reservation if you want to sit on one of the front tables. It is one...More
