An excellent overall experience. Beautiful decor in an interesting building with attentive staff and an excellent menu, The rendang croque monsieur was a highlight.

This is a spectacular venue by any standards. Beautifully re constituted restaurant that pays every attention to detail. The atmosphere reflects the respectful approach taken with meeting the 1930s revisit. The menu is well thought through and delivered to a good quality. The service is...attentive but not intrusive. A strong recommendation for a visit.More

The God stuff Background music and decor was like a scene from Merry Xmas Mr Lawrence - very relaxing. Staff helpful and friendly. Food was tasty and lightly spiced. The main prawn and pomfret dishes were generous and good quality What could be better The...menus (handled by hundreds of customers) sat on top of the plates. Really not hygenic in a rising Covid country Starter satay dish was child sized as was the passion fruit desert. Shame as later was delicious 3 of the 4 dishes arrived, the 4th 5mins later (better to hold in the kitchen till all were ready) 😊 Overall a pleasant ding experience.More

Can not remember when we last ate a meal so good. Started with pulled rendang beef croque monsieur and satay chicken, went on to a prawn Thai type curry with aubergine and mango salad sides. All absolutely delicious and in an antique Georgetown setting with...fantastic service. Good value too. Pretty much impossible to fault.More

Everything about this restaurant is top notch. The decor is sumptuous, and the food is delicious, especially the mango/soft shelled crab salad. The portions are generous and served on beautiful antique tableware. The service is excellent, Dinesh runs a tip-top team, really professional and very...friendly. He made us feel as if we were honoured guests! We strongly recommend trying to book to eat here, or even better, staying at the beautiful adjoining hotel.More

A beautifully decorated restaurant in a heritage hotel. Their was live music on old instrument being played. The set course was delicious but too much for us, so make sure you leave room. Our entree of otak otak was a hit and the crab roll...which you make yourself was interesting. Our mains of duck and lamb shank were beautifully cooked and the curried vegetables had great flavour. Our waiter Dinesh was an excellent host and explained the meals and how to eat (or mix) certain things together. An enjoyable final night in Penang.More

The Service is hopeless. We had a bad experience. Firstly the fan was spraying drops of oil all over the Table and my daughter. When we reported it the maitre was laughing!! He gave us a new table (then gave that table to a new...couple. The same thing happened again and they asked to be moved!!) The service was Glacial. Water arrived eventually but no glasses.

This was our splurge meal while in Penang. The setting of the restaurant is unbeatable... really breath-taking. The restaurant is Michelin listed and specializes in their own adaptations of Classis Chinese Nyonya cuisine. They offer 2-course meals for 128 ringgit, that includes a starter, main...and side greens. Adding a dessert brings the base cost to (158 ringgit. They also have a nice wine selection and even offer craft beer at reasonable prices. They serve the food family style so it's recommended to order different dishes so you can try several of their menu items. We liked the three meats that we ordered (lamb, beef, and duck); all very tender and tasty. The Pai Tee was a nice starter and the mango salad was the nicest of the greens. We were less impressed with the other offerings. Service was excellent. Including drinks, we paid around 600 ringgit for three of us.More

Kebaya is in the historic part of Penang (Georgetown) in a fully renovated building. The menu is set - you just pick from a few items. We had beef, chicken, duck, noodles, and mixed vegetables. All were delicious! The service is top notch with plenty...of attention paid to you. By local standards it is pricey. Along the lines for US and European prices per person. Loved it. Would go again. N*joy!More
