The portion is a generous amount for us. One of the best kway teow we had in penang and also one of the best fried oyster too. Was there on about 3pm so its not crowded like how we were told.

We had the fried oysters instead of the fried kway teow from the famous stall that uses charcoal to fry the rice noodles. Was great but was disappointed that we did not get to try the famous fried kway teow because it was super crowded!

The place is easy to find. Cooked by middle age aunty, little spicy, got 3 big prawns in it. Price reasonable RM 10 and you get the big portion. Service is quick although so crowded. and the char koay teow really recommended for those who looking for penang local food.

Order from the red hat/cap guys. Don't be fooled by the expensive price tag, pay the price because it is worth it. The rojak is not bad, just really expensive. So it the RM3 carpark on the side.

This stall is in the coffee shop at the corner of Lorong Selamat and McAlister Road. The fried oyster is tasty but a bit oily and the char hor fun is still good. Prices have increased but they have maintained the quality of the food. Still a good place to eat with other stalls providing some variety. Cleanliness is average.

I came here previously about 5-6 years back. The Char hor fun was around RM5 that time and it did taste good with the "wok" taste, that's what Chinese said. After few years I went, the price increase to RM7 and the taste of the char hor fun was not as good as the first time I tried, but it... More

Visited around 2pm on a Sunday and the place was jam packed. Be prepared to share table with others if you want to get a seat quick. The CKT was good, at 10ringgit a pop is still cheaper than what you would pay in Jakarta. The fried oyster is quite good too. Give it a try if you've never been... More

To be honest rm10 for a plate of char kueh tiaw (ckt) is too expensive...even when I am not Malaysian.... More

Delicious Char Koay Teow in Penang, but go easy with your preferences. If the ladies are in bad mood that day, she might scold you for making too many requests.
