“Great food, friendly service”
Reviewed April 9, 2012

This cafe (now called OK Cafe) was recommended to us by regulars in Penang and the Golden Sands Hotel. Its a little hard to find but well worth it. The owners are friendly and attentive, the food was excellent - we had some sizzlers and fried rice and noodles. Its a simple hawker style cafe but always packed. Will definitely be going back!

“Excellent - Highly recommended”
Reviewed August 22, 2011

We go here for luch every time we visit Penang, this place is a little hard to find it's in the side lane that runs along the Golden Sands Resort, if you walk down the lane it's on the right hand side. It's now called the OK Cafe and Liang and Loon make the best sizzling dishes you will ever find in Penang. The prices are very cheap and the beer is always cold. The reception you receive is always welcoming, they are only open until 5pm and they are closed on Tuesdays. Liang will cater to any needs that you have, they are especially good when it comes to feeding the children, we went with our 2 year old daughter. You will always find locals eating here. On a 7 day trip to Penang we would eat lunch here most of the days. Highly recommended.

“Great spot for a light lunch”
Reviewed June 13, 2011

The friendliest greeting ever, ice cold beers and easy light food. Just the spot for lunch. Its location doesn't look the greatest in a small shopping arcade adjacent to the Golden Sands but this is more tahn made up for by the friendly welcome. Food is simple from burgers & chips, sandwiches to wok stir fires. Service is swift and the ice cold beer just keeps on flowing. A regular lunch time spot & cheap.
