“Best by far in Georgetown”
Reviewed 27 March 2014

Really lovely restaurant, which is hard to find in Georgetown, as most are too unhygienic to even consider walking in, unless you have a death wish. Food of a very high standard, friendly unobtrusive service, great ambience, deserts are beautifully presented. You must try this restaurant, especially if you are western, what do you want cheap unclean eating places or good quality at a reasonable price? Ate here 3 times.

“Overpriced food but nice ambiance”
Reviewed 26 January 2014

Food is ridiculously overpriced while the food quality is nothing to brag. Had the worst mushroom soup here, worst than a canned soup. Tenderloin was good. Ambiance was the only thing worth paying for here.

“Nice atmosphere”
Reviewed 18 November 2013

Fine dining without being too expensive. Eaten here at least a dozen times and never had anything but good food. My wife and I will go here by ourselves or we will take our Western Visitors here who are nervous or anxious about dirty noisy Makans.
If you have someone you want to treat to good food with soft gentle music and a clean respectable environment then this is the place

“Disappointing food.”
Reviewed 12 November 2013 via mobile

The building is beautiful and the food is quite expensive so you would expect it to be quite tasty but it is not. It is very nicely presented but tastes very bland. We left feeling we could have gotten better food for a cheaper price from most other restaurants.

“Nicely restored heritage shop lot, nice food, good service”
Reviewed 4 September 2013

From the outside, the restaurant's exterior facade does not look like much. Inside however, the restaurant boast of gorgeous interior that blends modem chic with old school charm without loosing its core Penang heritage. The service was good, though the foreign waiter's accent was a little difficult to understand at times. The menu was quite a delight and we had a good time exploring its diverse offerings. All in all the meal was satisfactory, the price reasonable and the service good. I take it to be good because a lot of the restaurants customers are locals, Penang Lang. There is also a nice little museum at the back to explore after the meal
