Nice setting, food was okay and the waiters were quite pleasant and helpful. Had cream beef and butter rice, served with a plate of salad. Cream beef was good and tender but butter rice was dry, not buttery... tasted more like nasi goreng cina. That made the meal a little overpriced.

Had a business meeting here. The service was timely, good and friendly. It's not the easiest place to find but if your looking for a relaxing dinner then this is a great place to go.

I visited Penang recently to visit friends and dined at Salas a few times. Every visit I had extremely good food and service and prices are reasonable. It is a fusion restaurant but very much western. The owner is the same as the Salas in Hotel Continental.

This restaurant is closed and the site under the Hotel Continental ia available to let. I have eaten there on previous trips and it was a good restaurant but found in 2013 that the food and service had worsened so perhaps a lack of customers led to the closure.

We had a good impression of the food & customer service at Salsas Hotel Continental which we had visited a couple of times. It was unfortunately a very unpleasant first time visit to Salsas Paragon Penang. The attitude of the supervisor & the staff at Salsas Gurney Paragon was one of the worst we encountered thus far. They were very... More

If you're looking for a nice environment, that serves western, wait no more. Head over to Paragon Gurney, which is their new outlet. They serve set meals for lunch starting as low as RM 15 onward. Service not too bad, rate 7/10.

Great location, friendly staffs, clean, reasonable, I love the Semi-buffet selection but the spaghetti totally out, I tried 2 different spaghetti, it was overcook, tasteless, steaks was good. They even gave a birthday cake to my brother's birthday. Will definitely come back again. Cheers,

We like Salsa; it is conviniently located in the Paragon Mall, first floor. You have the option of sitting outside or inside. The waiters are young, charming and friendly, but not terribly experincd. Salsa's luncheon menue offers great variety and at a very reasonable price. The portions are moderate, but always nicely presented. Good value for money and an excellent... More

Went to the one in gurney paragon We were checking the menu out and reading the mostly good reviews on trip advisor The waiter at the door encouraged us to come in Unfortunately when seated he knew nothing about the menu the ingredients or the dishes And ultimately the food was all horrible I've given 2 stars because he was...
