“Rock and roll, Penang style”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 5, 2014

Always fun to eat at a Hard Rock, especially with a live act performing. The food here is above average. The BBQ chicken and burgers are perfectly done, with good service and nice, open seating in the main dining area. Also love the rock and roll memorabilia. They even have a guitar signed by Weezer!

“One of the best milkshakes in Asia”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 4, 2014

Seriously, I have been searching for a semi-decent milkshakes. 4 scoops of Haagen-Dazs ice-cream and 4 ounces of milk. This place beat any other milkshake I have had in Asia. Cost was RM28++ (about US$10).

Everything else was good too, but I do wish they had better vegetarian options that do not involve mushrooms.

“Great Menu”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 27, 2014

I loved the menu which had a variety of local delights as well western cuisine. The staff were really polite and service was commendable. There is also an outdoor sitting area if you want to have some quiet time with enjoying an evening tea or dinner with your partner.

Thank you Ganesh for visiting the Hard Rock Cafe Penang and giving us a 4 star review on your visit. I am delighted to hear that you have enjoyed your visit at the cafe and also the band that was performing on the evening. The band is called Deviate and arguably they are the best Rock Band in the island. They perform at the Hard Rock Cafe everyday except on Tuesday. Well hope to welcome back you soon. Until then, Rock ON and See the SHOW.
