I went for a walk along Gurney Drive whilst in Penang (since we were staying in the area). Nothing special to see. 2 big malls and not much else. Not really very friendly for pedestrians.

If there are bad hawker foods in Penang, then surely Gurney Drive Hawker Centre is the clear winner. We have tried many hawker centre in Penang. Almost all were good and reasonably priced. None could be considered bad. But in Gurney Drive we tried "best...More

Pasembor is ok, if you really want to try just look for the uncle that chant 'rojak2'. Others not significant. I don't recommend Nasi Kandar just beside uncle Rojak2, it's just plainly spicy curry no flavour and outrageously expensive. Not so clean environment though. Overrated....More

Never fail me after so many years. Foods are still great although price is no difference from KL prices. If your kids can’t take the heat, come later in the evening about 7:30pm. That’s when most awesome food choice is available.

The Gurney Drive hawker area is very crowded with tables packed together and very little room to navigate. Hawkers are territorial so watch where you sit!! You basically have to order food/drinks from the table provided by the particular stall. It is not beyond them...More

This place is basically overrated. On top of being a hawker place, we have to queue for our food, and self-serve. Sit on the wrong table, and you get scolded. Tables basically belong to drinks stalls, and they expect you to order a load full...More

The Pasembor quality has dropped over the years, especially the sauce. Chinese food was not bad. But a place for food if you visit Penang.
