“Its still the "BEST" best place for lunch”

Tan Sam Guan Seafood
Ranked #157 of 1,776 Restaurants in Penang Island

Restaurant details
Reviewed September 4, 2012

We returned again in August 2012 and Liang and Loon are still the same and the food is still excellent, we ate there every day except for Tuesday when they are closed.

If you want to try the best food while in Penang visit this place, it’s the best. Also the cold beer man is next door the coldest beer in Penang

During our stay at Penang we ate at many places and found it all wonderful. One morning we ventured down a lane next to the Golden Sands Resort and found the best food ever, run by the nicest people you could imagine (Liang and Loon).
We love our asian food but their food is to die for, and to be greeted everyday by a couple with the biggest smiles made our holiday the best.We had a group of 9 people and we all went for lunch there every day.
If you want to try the best food while in Penang visit this place , its the best!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

OMG! Liang and Loon cook the best food I have EVER tasted. Liang is a little powerhouse, she is friendly and welcoming and cannot do enough to make you feel at home. Took over from her father 8 years ago (she is only 31 now - 2012) and cooks to perfection. Everything is fresh and delicious, once we discovered them, we went for lunch every day. Open 10am til 5pm. Try the Szzling Prawns, the Beef and Potato Curry, Malay Chicken Curry, the Won Ton Soup - in fact, anything she cooks is to die for!

If you are looking for a restaurant and plush surroundings this is not the place to eat for you. The Tan Sam Guan Seafood is located in a laneway between The Lone Pine and the Golden Sands Hotel on the right hand side heading towards the beach. Some market stalls are surrounding the eating area. It is run by a young couple who are friendly, accommodating , who cook the meals and serve the tables. The food is fresh and a wide variety can be found. Do not be put off by the concrete chairs and table. We have found this place to be the best value for money in Batu Ferrighi. You cannot miss them as they are both wearing gum boots and are always smiling and happy. We have been going for lunch for the last couple of years and they don't forget you and always greet you with a smile. Right next door is the cold beer man. This is the coldest beer you will ever have with ice on the bottles and glasses! Pay them a visit and you will not be disappointed. The only downside is they close around 4pm.
