“Excellent Food Good Value For Money”
Review of Long Beach

Long Beach

Cuisines: Malaysian

Good for: Local cuisine, Large groups, Families with children
Dining options: Breakfast, Late Night, Dinner, Delivery
Description: Long Beach is a collection of street stalls surrounding the sitting area. It is located outside and offers many cuisines including Malaysian. In the area there are not so many restaurants offering Malay food so I thought it appropiate to add this 'restaurant' to the listings, although most would probably not class it as a conventional one!

“Excellent Food Good Value For Money”
Reviewed May 11, 2011

Our first night in Penang we decided to explore and go out and look to see what is available for food. We had been told aboout Longbeach by several people who go to Penang every year so decided to try it out.
The place was totally packed however after keeping our eyes open for people leaving we found a table and sat down. The idea is not to leave the table unattended or you will lose it.
We could not believe our eyes with the variety of food and the cost, so cheap. It was a hard decision but finally went for the spring rolls, barbecued garlic prawns and fresh lime juice.
The total cost for the two of us was $15, we went back every night we were in Penang and this was the most expensive meal. Most nights we spent between $7 and $10AUD for two.
Do not be put off by the numbers, be patient and once you have a table you will find the food is delivered very quickly.
Highly recommend spring rolls, chicken sticks, barbecued prawns, Indian (in the back corner).

“Do not miss this place !”
Reviewed April 25, 2011

The choice, price and quality of food will have you going back again and again to this place. Don't be put off by the organised chaos or setting, grab a table, leave someone there with the money, order your food telling the stall your table number and pay when it arrives.

“LOVELY FOOD - DO NOT MISS IT”
Reviewed April 6, 2011

We have been visiting Penang for many years. Have akways eaten there with never a prioblem. Just so simple - pick your table and maked a note of of the number and go and order your food. Girls come round and serve your drinkgs. Just a simple pay as you go method and it works. Never ever had a bad meal there. Us personaly would not waste our money eating at the restaurants anymore when you can eat at Long Beach for quarter of the price. Plus they have TV screens so if you want to keep up with sport etc from home you can. I can't believe people who turn their noses up at this place and refuse to eat there.

“A must do - fabulous!”
Reviewed September 26, 2010

We fell in love with this place and ate here every night - there is so much to choose from and the whole process is a well oiled machine - you are never waiting for food or for drink and its just great fun! You see locals sitting beside tourists- everyone eating the same food and enjoying themselves. Our particular favourites were the spring rolls and the banana and chocolate pancakes - yum!!
