This was the second time that we were there and once again, it was closed. Its opening hours are noon to 3 pm and 6 pm onwards for dinner. However, the staff was nice enough to allow us to have drinks which we desperately need as it was so hot outside.

The place was beautiful. It was tastefully restored. The museum at the back of the restaurant provided some history of the Chinese in Penang and Yeap Chor Hee, a businessman and philanthropist. It was a rags to riches story.

As part of Georgetown's UNESCO status, here is a beautifully restored Chinese heritage home. - do visit upstairs to see the formal dining room with ancestral altar and courtyard festooned with tropical plants. The dinner is however not heritage or Chinese but Western - beef onion soup, duck, steak, pasta all done well and although not fine dining standards cf. McAllister Mansion, it is good fare although perhaps a trifle expensive by Pensng standards. We were brought here by Penangites who thought the lunch was better. We were a big party of 11 and they cheerfully accommodated us.

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.

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.

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
