This place is great , myself and my wife have been to Penang 26 times over the last 7 years , so i speak from long term experience , Ricky ( the owner ) is pure gold , feels like we are visiting old friends every time we go there , great price , good food and nothing is too much trouble , do yourself a favour and give it a go.

We had dinner over a weekend in December and i cannot understand how this place managed to get its ratings. I will give it credit for the good points i.e. eager service and cheap prices. The bad points : Food was salty and run of the mill. The teenage girl who took our order clearly had no idea whether the amount of food ordered was enough (it was not, but that was a blessing actually as we went elsewhere to "top up" later). If you have no other options, and are just looking for something to fill up your stomach then this is the place for you. Tip to non-locals: If you would want some proper Penang food, please make a trip to town, its not too difficult even on a budget (bus Service 101 is frequent enough).

Dependable, cheap and tasty food. I've eaten here many times and it's always fabulous.
On our last lunch we had a feast (no beers included, just soft drink) and it averaged out to be 20MR each

We choose this restaurant as it had quite high ratings by fellow Tripadvisor users. However, the food was overrated. The food was very salty, and there's nothing special/fantastic about it, just usual local fare. Any decent Chinese restaurant in Penang should be able to do better it. It is that average.

Where to start - food was so delicious, authentic Malaysian food that catered perfectly to our taste buds. Ricky the owner (who works there from 3pm) was so friendly and made us feel very comfortable - they would even put a fan on so you had some cool breeze whilst you ate!. Their Fried Kway Teow and Fried Me was sensational! and the spring rolls and garlic squid were deliciously good all washed down with a Skol beer (for hubby) and a cold peach tea for me - once we found him we never ate anywhere else for the week. Thanks Ricky to you and your family - we loved every meal!
