“Terrible”
Reviewed January 16, 2014

I've visit the restaurant few years ago and it taste so nice. Unfortunately the food taste level has changed from my last visit. The mushroom soup was so terrible, plain like a water without any mushroom inside the soup neither. The chicken is not fresh at all, asked the waiter to change the plate for us but the waitress was letting us to wait for more than 30 minutes then only remember she haven't make that change for us! What a terrible service~!

“Good Western Food, Reasonable Prices”
Reviewed December 31, 2013

James Foo has been operating his Western Food joint within the Fettes Park area of Penang for some 30 years now. The new restaurant is cosy, air-conditioned whilst maintaining decent servings at reasonable prices. I would not hestitate to recommend a good dinner anyday at this restaurant.

“Good food with quality and affordable price”
Reviewed November 25, 2013

Love their grills and generous amount of tartar sauce.
Their tartar sauce is pretty healthy too, not too thick with mayonaise but lotsa onions in it.

If you are going with friends or family, do order their jumbo size fruit drinks.. very big and can serve up to 3 person..

Oxtail soup and the vietnamese spring rolls too recommended :D

“Good price and good service”
Reviewed November 8, 2013

Very simply made meal for a good price. Service was very fast as well. The mushroom soup was a bit salty for me and not very 'mushroomy' but we paid such a low price that it really did not matter. We had a variety of things from the menu and it all turned out pretty good. Always keep in mind though, that this is a great place to bring your family for a cheap filling meal. This is not going to be a 5 star restaurant you'd like to propose to your future wife in.
