You get a table with a number in the middle of the court and then walk around all the foodstalls to see what you wanna order. You order, mention your table number and they will bring the food to your table. When it is delivered you pay. Very cool concept that I wish they had more back home. There is... More

If you are firm about what you want and don't let the beer touts oversell (we asked for 1 large Tiger and they brought 2) you... More

We were in Penang for 7 nights and came here 3 times for our evening food. It's cheap and cheerful, a sea of red plastic chairs and white tables lined on all corners by every type of food stalls imaginable. We ate royally trying all sorts of dishes averaging a total of £9 for two people. Really tasty. Salim served... More

The worse lime sour plum i ever drink. Taste like water with a little bit of lime and sugar. Food is ok with local cook but not the foreign cook.
