Needless to say, their signature is the char kuay teow and it taste really delicious. However, the staffs are not that friendly and not that of good service. Would recommend their Pie Tee as well. Environment in a bit hot, no matter inside or outside. A bit pricey for these kind of hawker food, but at least decent.

Little Penang Kafe serves up pretty delicious Penang delights. Their char koay teow (CKT) still can't quite compare to the stuff you find from hawkers, of course, but is still pretty tasty (if expensive- RM18 for their seafood special CKT!) Their prawn noodles, asam laksa, lam mee, rojak, joo hu char and kari ikan hantu are also pretty good. Do also give their cendol and red ruby desserts a try.

Service is quick but perfunctory. Wait time between ordering and getting your food is surprisingly minimal... but that is often assuming you manage to get the attention of a server in the first place as they're always zipping about looking extremely hurried, busy & stressed.

Be prepared to queue during peak meal hours on weekends, public holidays and school holidays.

Food is quite good actually and they offer delicious local quisine at a resonable price... Penang Fried Kway Teau is very tasty; get it slightly spicy for a nice umphhh...

My favourite eatery in KLCC. A must visit for my trip!! Food are tasty, with reasonable price. Must try the prawn noodles, laksa asam, and curry noodles. The Ice Kacang is one of the best in town, eventhough price is a bit more expensive than what you can get outside. Will remain my favourite place.

This is on level 4 KLCC and stands out with its ambiance. It has the look of an old style coffeehouse. There are a range of local dishes on the menu. Judging by the number of people visiting when we were there these all pretty good. We certainly couldn't fault the dishes we enjoyed.
