Three and a half stars for this cute, basic bistro. Had lunch here which was good but not unforgettable.

Enjoyed a tasty dinner - sizzling chicken & beef rendang. With rice and 2 soft drinks came to all of 62ish MYR. Probably best not to let guests (who can't) sing though!

We ate here during a torrential downpour. My beef Rendang was nice but a little chewy, also it was cut in large slices which were difficult to cut with a fork and spoon. However, my husband's prawn Kapitan curry was amazing. The wine was quaffable and the atmosphere encouraged chat between tables. Five glasses of wine later, the bill was... More

The owners and staff were very friendly, the music was good so we sat at the bar for a while then moved to a table. The menu choice was fab and the price, really reasonable. When they asked if we would like... More

We ate here twice after reading reviews on Trip Advisor and we weren't disapointed. The food was lovely and fresh, service was fast and the fans created a lovely cool setting to escape the humidity outside. The rendang was some of the best we've ever had (almost beating the rendang we had in Ubud!) and the burger was surprising great.... More

We stayed in Penang for 8 nights and we had dinner here for 6 nights. The food is excellent with a choice of traditional and western food. The family run business makes you feel at home and it was a quite and relaxing experience while eating good food and listening to the man playing guitar. This is a must place... More
