We had lunch for 8 people - ordered set menu for 4 people, and added 2 additional dishes. We are not small eaters :). To me, the portion is decent and the food delicious. Some people at the table find the food over rated, over priced and unauthentic. By the way, this is my 2nd visit and I love it!

Visit with my group of 11 gals for lunch. As it was my first visit, I was pleasantly surprised by the big spread of nonya dishes, some of which I had never tried before.
Loved all the dishes - set course, Assam fish, beef rendang etc etc. only thing I didn’t care for was the meatball soup which was a little bland. Nevertheless there was plenty of other dishes that we ate and devoured quickly.
The food was so good that we even ordered more with Dragon the manager to freeze for us to bring home another day. He was accommodating enough to return to restaurant on a Monday ( closed normally) just to pack our frozen order so we can pick up then . Great service indeed! Thank you Dragon. By the way, my family in SG thoroughly enjoyed the lok bak, beef rendang and chicken kapitan that I brought home!

Had a dinner for 4 people and the food portion is tiny. Food is so so but definitely over rated and over priced. I will not come back again as there are better alternatives for Nyonya cuisine in Penang. If you dont believe me go and try. The dishes are not small but tiny. Need to order 2 or 3 portion for family of 8.

We decided to try the food at Ivy's Nyonya Cuisine after reading the reviews on Tripadvisor, however, we were quite disappointed. We ordered the fish head curry which we felt was a little small for its price. The curry was not sufficiently flavoursome and the fish was not succulent, in fact it was a little hard. Perhaps the chef was having a bad day.
