Trendy place apparently run by Aussies . They have the most amazing cake selection I have ever seen, you have to see it to believe, all truly home made. It is a great place to visit to get a break from the blistering heat whilst walking around Georgetown. They also run a shelter for homeless animals and funds from the restaurant/cafe are contributed to this, excellent. We loved it so much we went twice in one day.

Others have said it better than I can. Have enjoyed two visits so far. Once for drinks, and then for a casual lunch. Fun, attentive staff who are not annoying, fresh, well prepared food. Most of all, fusion dishes that WORK!! Thank you to manager Daniel and crew, keep it up. See you soon.

This place is just great. From decor and ambience through to service nothing is wrong. Grab some cake and wonder through to the other side to listen to the live band. seriously good.

I visited China House on two occasions during a recent trip to Penang. The first time we met friends and had a drink in the lively bar with a great live band and the second visit for a meal in the restaurant.
The food and service was pretty good but beware as you may need to order some side extras as the portions were a little short of a full meal. I ordered the Sea-bass and it was nice but it was only served with a runny mash potato and a small amount of veg.
Even though the food was a bit of a let down this place is a fabulous addition to the night life of Georgetown.

This is literally a long establishment, three shophouses renovated and strung together to constitute an interactive art centre, bar, and cafe rolled into one. Quite amazing to walk through and watch different people doing their own thing. We indulged in the tiramisu and chocolate cakes and were quite satisfied, although we are no connoisseurs.

Ambience is great. Fits in perfectly with Penang's new-found position as an arts and heritage hub.
