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.

“Expensive”
Reviewed November 1, 2013

After reading all the Tripadvisor reports maybe we were expecting too much. The food was good but we would have preferred to have had a couple of courses instead of having to have four. A set menu. The wine was expensive and the ambience a bit stark. For the price it just didn't have the right atmosphere.

“Great Kebaya”
Reviewed October 20, 2013

The service is personal, pleasant and detailed. The food is fabulous. It is not as expensive as I thought after reading the reviews on Trip Advisor. It is less expensive then like restaurants in Penang and on a par with the best restaurants in its class.

“Absolutely compulsory”
Reviewed October 18, 2013

If you are in Penang because you are fascinated by the Nyonya food and culture - you have to, absolutely must, dine at Kebaya. Actually you should stay at Seven Terraces ( stunningly gorgeous boutique hotel where Kebaya is located ) but I did not manage stay there this time so I shall review that next time I am in Penang.

Back in Kebaya, the food is superb - it is traditional Nyonya food with a fun twist. My parents are not into " fun twists" and they loved it.

I agree with the other reviewers, for the quality of food, service and the scrumptious surroundings ( I love the doors ) the prices are very reasonable and the general vibe of the restaurant convivial.

Pick up the phone and book a table.
