This place (at the time of visit, Tripadvisor's 4th best local restaurant) was just around the corner from us, so we thought we'd check it out. Not sure what the other reviewers see.
We ordered the beef rendang and the vegetables with prawns, along with drinks and sides. The rendang was relatively tasty, but at MYR 18 only contained three small chunks of beef. The vegetables with prawns were equally pricey, and to our dismay, quite tasteless. 6 of the smallest prawns you'll find on a dinner plate topped a bland plate of what is known in other parts of Malaysia as jungle greens.
Service was okay, but in the end we were left with a large bill and a disappointing experience. This is a case of when Tripadvisor reviews let you down.
Penang has amazing street food and food court dining at about a fifth the price of Ivy's. Fill up on that before you decide on a gamble at a place like this.
