Description: Kebaya is the diningroom of the Seven Terraces and is open to hotel guests and the public.Open daily, 7pm till 10pm.Christopher Ong has worked with the hotel’s chefs to create a menu of classic Indo and Straits Chinese Nyonya dishes. They have refined these using French cooking techniques and innovative produce to deliver surprising new twists on this already fascinating cuisine.The effect is simple, delicious full of flavour and dazzling.A four course degustation menu of entrée, main course, vegetables and dessert is served in Chinese style to allow guests to share the dishes. The Baba Bar is open daily from 2pm onwards, with live piano music in a very intimate setting.

This was definately the culinary highlight of our Malaysian journey - a wonderful re-discovery of Nyonya cuisine. In fact, at Kebaya one could say that it's been re-invented: all those traditional herbs ,spices and essential ingredients are still there but have been expertly tweaked and tuned and the result is sensational. I'll remember in particular the duck with star-anis and the light and witty starters. The service was as good as the feast we found on our beautiful flower- patterned plates and, just as important, we could hear ourselves talk. A perfect evening !

Kebaya is in a totally different plane compared to all the food and beverage outlets in Penang. Finally, there is a place you can actually sit and savour the food. This is not a place for hurried dinners - it is best to make reservations and the first thing you do is to order a glass of wine while taking pleasure in admiring the elegance of the bar and the tasteful interiors. They also have a piano player on weekends and on holidays. The fusion of flavours in their food is refreshing - it is something you have to relish. I went there a few times and the smiles of the staff are genuine, they even remember my drink. The best part is, it is non-smoking!

First time of "Nyonya Food". I would say, it was a fantastic night in Georgetown (Penang).
The food is superb from starter, main course to dessert. (My fav is "Crab curry")...the decor, the ambience, services staff is nice.

A must visit when in Penang!!!!

We wanted to try due to good reviews onTA. Average food, main course(the recomended duck) was burned and destroyed. No reason to go back. For the price of 100 RM pr person it was a disaster.
