We had been here for three times on different timing in Penang over a couple of years. I won't say it's bad, but the food quality, the coffee and the staff service attitude needs a lot of improvement. There are many other cafes and restaurants in George Town serve much better coffee and food and service than here. The staff... More

We had a wonderful meal. The food was very well presented and tasty and the staff were professional and attentive under pressure. Although we have lived in Penang for several years it has taken us a while to discover some of Penang's hidden gems. China House was a real find for us. We enjoyed the meal enormously and we will...

It is good break when you are walking around George town. Deserts and coffee is nice, decoration is interesting.

Great milkshakes! That's what I am rating. If you are a fan of ice-cream and milkshakes. This place will float your boat. Food on the other hand is ordinary for Georgetown standards. We ordered double chocolate peanut shake and ordered three more, because they were so great. Drinks came early and the first order of pasta came quickly. BUT! My... More

The food and the concept are great, and that's where it stops. There were many staff working but it was chaotic and they were confused and flustered. A few were grumpy, rude and inhospitable toward the customers. We asked thrice to order, each time a different staff, and none came back to us to take our order. The owner had... More

Its been some time since we have been here and as a cake loving friend was visiting I thought this place may fill her needs. I was glad to see that the now larger range of cakes sit on glass stands under glass domes. They appear to be doing away with the dreaded plastic wrap that we observed on our... More

I was surprised by the level of service in this establishment. Throughout my 5 day stay in Georgetown, I received friendly and top class service wherever I went, cept for Kopi C @ China House. Which makes it even more bewildering considering the prices they charge. First, my order of apple strudel was forgotten. thereafter, when I asked one of... More

After waiting for 40 mins I asked the waitress at utmost politeness and got a terrible reply. Very rude and strongly not recommended. We then canceled the order and walk away.

Nice interesting bubbly place BUT the cakes were on the dry side and hot coffees not hot enough. The cakes we ordered were uncut and we were told it's just delivered today. We ordered 2 different types and both types turned out DRY even though they are filled with cream. Even the cakes we baked at home are moist. They... More

A friend has been gushing and recommending China House and we thought we should give it a try last Friday. I share the same sentiments as some reviewers here that the service by the staff were less than satisfactory. We were ignored when we stepped into the cafe and were only served when we approached the staff ourselves. Most tables... More
