Their food was really delicious before the chefs changed. The food now is terrible! Totally not worth it. If you are planning to have a good dinner, I would not recommend this one. Their deserts are so far okay, but always running out of ice-cream flavours. Could have been better.

Been there for dinner. The ambient was good. Considering the price with the restaurant location, the prices were acceptable. But when compare the price with the food, it was an overpriced restaurant. The garlic bread was just like 5 thin light buttered begets, it's like a swipe of salted butter with no taste of garlic at all. The nasi lemak... More

Have dinner at this restaurant. Ordered two nasi lemak for two person. Dishes are very good and tasty. The most interesting on this place is on their decoration style and lighting. Lanscapping like a village in the middle of the town. Using more bamboos to decorate the whole restaurant. Feel calm and privacy with candle-light on the table.

The price of "Mango Twist" & "Fruit Punch" was RM9.90 each actually & not 6.50RM as I wrote earlier ,which is outrageous,considering that the drinks were just plain ordinary which one can find at any Malay wedding party,and not even pure mangoes were used for the drink. That too in an artificially created ambiance with full of mosquitoes...at least they... More

Given the number of street stalls and great food vendors in Penang, this place is over priced, lacks atmosphere and the food is average. The service was fast and efficient.

However the food was tasty,the serving reasonable.Service was average.The cuisine was Malaysian and... More

An inviting place from the outside so we decided to drop by for a drink. Ordered simple 'teh tarik' and cafè latte that took a while to come. It has a band playing in the evening but it wasn't fantastic. Played local Malay music. Overall a place to be if you've ran of ideas to feast otherwise there are better... More
