We always pass by this restaurant on the way back from Gurney to Bayan Lepas but never stop by to have our meal here because the shop looks ordinary from far and seems like nothing special. Yesterday we had a chance to visit it and...More

The food was ok. I ordered the beef rendang and it was a little dry. Great location. Ok to stop if passing by but wouldn't go out of the way to visit.

Need to employ more service staff. Short of hand and long wait for the dishes. Table layout can be improved. Desserts are somehow limited choices.

Great food (Typical Penang), good ambience and reasonable service and price. The view over the water is very nice too. No beer (halal) is the only down side, recommended.

After a conference, about 14 of us, 7 per table spend about 50 RM each. Quite a spread. The Yam was nice but the duck soup was weird. Overall average dining experience with friendly staff and lovely night view.

Stumbled onto Hai Nan Town after a visit to the mainland - it's just a short walk from the ferry terminal, past the bus station on the way to Church Street Pier. You can sit outside and get a good view of the harbour. Enjoyed...More

This restaurant is right beside the Jeti Jalan Gereja and the outdoor seats offers a very good view of the strait and the Mainland Malaysia across the water. The breeze can really cool you off the day heat. The food is not bad, but not...More
