New but not fully tenanted

Went to check out the mall - it's got a nice open space atrium with a band belting Chinese popular hits. Spacious but not fully tenanted yet.

- Its new and small. The space is nice clean but the layout is a bit weird, There is too much walking and less choice. Not much people. Few choices on brands. There is good food court available on 5th floor. Local foods available.

Most visitors to Penang would end up visiting one of the shopping malls. We found this one to be well lit with large pedestrian walkways and corridors. The wider spaces also meant less human traffic congestion in any one specific area. The large number of upmarket retailers and luxury brands provided a wide range of shopping and F&B options. I'm...

Interesting colonial kind of structure and design of the mall, true to the colonial George Town area. We were lucky to catch a colorful and artistic traditional dance performance and lively music program taking place on the ground floor arena of the mall. The food at the food court was delicious, especially the Nasi Lemak and the kebabs.

My family favorite shopping mall used to be Gurney Plaza - next to Gurney Paragon. But Gurney Paragon also offers something different. It brought in many F&B outlets in St Jo's. And some brands available here are not duplicated in Gurney Plaza e.g. Sephora, H&M, and Tumi's. We were a bit disappointed that Tasty Congee is gone though. On New... More

Was a harmonic and expensive place to go for and it's located near to the Gurney Drive and also can be said as a day getaway. One can go for a mind relaxing evening or for a cup of tea with loved ones.

We like to watch movie in this mall. We have iMax and beanie seats or the normal ones. The shops offer a variety of products, beside the normal fashion items like H&M, we have electronic store: Harvey Norman. Beside a variety of restaurants, there is a food court too, the popular ones are the local delights but our best choice... More

This mall is huge and modern just like most malls here in the US. There were a few high-end stores and the rest are mostly British brand retail shops. What I really enjoyed here is the fact there is a hawker stand-like food in the food court on the 5th floor. Also, if you sit outside the food court, there's... More
