“Great value for money”
Reviewed March 1, 2013

Although this restaurant is not located in the "see and be seen" bit of Gurney Plaza, the set menu for tea, especially the pancake + coffee/tea combo is great value for money. Simple yet satisfying - at RM11+, it definitely made my afternoon. Be warned, this offer is only available between 1500 - 1730.

“Christmas dinner at Manila Place”
Reviewed December 25, 2012

When you are a tourist, having Christmas dinner poses something of a challenge. Even if you are not trapped in a compulsory expensive Christmas dinner or buffet, included in the hotel booking, most restaurants offer special Christmas menus, with inflated prices, to the point of fleecing the tourists. Not at Manila place. As we had dinner at Manila place last year we trusted to find a Christmas menu at moderate prices and we were not disappointed. We could even choose from the normal menu if we wished. Manila place is smack in the middle of the ground floor of the new part of Gurney Plaza, right between the shops, so the atmosphere is like that. Nevertheless, Manila Place is a nice haven between the bustle and noise of the shopping scene. The Christmas menu was a simple three course menu with a choice of three main courses and a fruit drink. The price was very moderate. The main course selected, grilled salmon with basil-cream sauce was cooked to perfection and delicious. No candle light and soothing muzak, but shopping mall illumination and blaring sales pitches, but a terrific Christmas dinner for a terrific cheap price. Manila Place is OK.

“Step inside and enjoy a good meal”
Reviewed January 13, 2012

Manila Place is located on the ground floor of the new addition to Gurney Plaza shopping mall on the Persiaran Gurney in Georgetown, Penang. It is an "open" restaurant, meaning that the restaurant area is created by separateng space in the big hall of the new addition. You could walk past it without noticing. But step inside, because wonderful food is prepared here. Even if you are wishing for a bit Western food, you can always replace the rice with French fries. The well cooked meat or fish stays the same. At lunchtime you can choose for a set meal of starter, main course and drink for a very competitive price. Real value for money. To be recommended.
