We first went to Teksen several months ago and have returned now several times. Food is consistently good and service is great.

Food here is so nice. I know this is very famous in town, but expensive. Once I tried it, I know its worth to try and wait for it. Usually here crowd. Food here is fresh and taste so unique. However, staff here is a little bit rude. Try it out here!

Good for early supper as the restaurant fills up fast. We had 5 dishes, all excellent. The specialties are all very tasty. There was a long line when we left at 8:00pm, but seemed to be moving pretty fast.

We had our dinner at this place. All the dishes that we ordered were super delicious. All the pork dishes were so tender and juicy. The soup of the day cannot be left out. These dishes are recommend to have together with rice.This place is a must when you visit Georgetown.

It was not too busy lunch time, full of local and tourists. Food was fast, fresh and delicious so we decided to... More

This eating establishment has been around Penang for a while now. My friends took me here for dinner. We got here just a few minutes before 6pm and it was already a full house. After we got seated, I noticed that people started lining waiting to get a table. I understand that the line gets really long and people are... More

Super nice food, and worth the wait! I tried a bunch of different dishes, because I ended up there two times during my 2 night stay here. I recommend everyone to go there at least once!

We arrived just a moment after its opening, but there was already a long queue. It was convenient to have a look at the menu during waiting. They let you also even place your order right then.

I stumbled upon this place by chance and I was so lucky! I ordered a chicken dish and my boyfriend had the pork ribs. We both loved our dishes. We planned on coming back but unfortunately it was closed the day we went. Would have loved to have gone again! Would recommend to any tourist 👌
