We've been there countless times and have never been disappointed.

Great food, tasty and fresh. Nice service and of course, gorgeous location!

Great food in a beautiful place. Service was haphazard, main dishes came out before entrees. The food was amazing though. The view and the ambience was great. Very good prices. I would go back.

Just had the most amazing lunch , a total feast . Excellent value for money .We opted for the 12 piece Asian Tapas ,the waiter smiled when we ordered and enquired if it was going to be enough ! The presentation was beautiful , all the dishes tasted great . Service was excellent . Would like to go back in the evening but would need to be pretty covered up given the jungle setting . Not to be missed

This restaurant has great food, good prices, & the best outdoor atmosphere of any independent restaurant we know of in Penang. An excellent dining experience. Make reservations as the place is often very trendy at night.

Ate here once and would have gone back again if time had allowed!

It's a little out of the way from the main batu strip, located next door to / at the spice garden, meant having to catch a taxi up there, and a very steep entrance means heels would be trick and the infirm might struggle.

The food was delicious, with a nice variety of Thai food and other Malay dishes! The whole fish was excellent as well as their Thai curries.

With most of the seats outside the heat was a bit uncomfortableness or me, but I do struggle generally with that. Mosquitos can be an issue , was ok for me but my companions did get a couple of bites..

Didn't see any of the monkeys that other reviewers mentioned but am sure they come out occasionally, must have been our bad luck. A woman at reception at our hotel was singing their praises as well so the locals seem to be keen too which is always a good sign!

Prices reasonable again, and no issue with the service at all.

Would definitely go back again if back in Penang!
