During our visit in Penang we had our last meal at the Red Garden Foodparadise. Very nice food with a lot of choice. Indian, Thai, Chinese. Fish, chicken, veggie. After enjoying our fish we tried the chicken tikka massala from Jandoori. We were amazed by the flavour and incredibly good taste! You could taste the different spices, the chicken was... More

If you are short on time, but still want to experience Penang food, this place is a one stop place to try all the various dishes. This food center has everything - oyster omelettes, BBQ, Porridge, Chendol, Japanese Korean etc. The food quality is good in some stalls, but if you hunt, you can find better in Penang.

Before you get in, narrow down and classify what you want to eat. Seafoods, meat, or veges so when you get in, you won't have a hard time choosing

Famously profiled by Anthony Bourdain, this is our favourite hawkers mall. As expected, a great selection of amazing food and great variety. But, for a hawkers mall, it has really fun 'local colour' ambience. Good seating where you are served drinks and can watch a large screen TV. And if that's not enough entertainment for you, the music comes on... More

Aimed at mainly tourists. The dishes and the service is maybe a little bit better than at other hawker centers - but the prices are quite a bit higher than at those places. Lots of variety and choices and excellent service.

Red garden is a great little place for tourists to get a large variation of local dishes slightly higher in cost than other hawker stands in Penang but as this place fills up with tourists "Matsalle" they consider very cheap so overall a goto place for sure!!....

This food hawkers market was very close to our hotel - the E&O so we could walk here quite easily. The food on offer was exceptional in taste and variety and the drinks service to each table was well organised. The tip is to get a table first and table number and then go off and order, they will then... More

You can probably get every type of food you want. We wanted a curry and we were very pleased. Have a wander around the various food stalls, make your decision and grab a table. Then take your table number to your chosen stall and order (pay on delivery to your table) Drinks waiters come separately to your table and deliver... More
