We haven't tried any of their products, we made some straight purchase for gifts because we trusted their name. They offered pies with various fillings beside their famous sesame oil. Price was reasonable. Clean store with spacious parking space. The old lady who served us was nice.

I went to the Ghee Hiang outlet along Beach Street which is a UNESCO world heritage building. There's a cafe behind the store selling amazing local breakfast. As I love tau sar peah, I bought a box of it together with a box of beh teh saw, Heong Peah and almond cookies just for the sake of trying out the variety. Lo and behold, the almond cookies are the best! I simply love the freshness and crispiness from every individually wrapped products! Each almond biscuit is individually wrapped thus retaining the freshness! No wonder the business can survive 163 years and has expanded to other states! The food is amazing! The outlet in KL Lot 10 sells tau sar peah at RM 4.30 more expensive than in Penang though. The rest of the products are also pricier in KL but not as big a difference compared to tau sar peah. Anyhow, this is a highly recommended place to purchase local Malaysian pastries. I guess I can just purchase from the outlet in KL if I crave for it the next time. Good souvenirs to bring home for sure.

Friendly Staff. Think her name is Eileen (Hope I got it right). Lucky stepped in a few minutes earlier, as quite a lot of customers came in and the queue started to be long. The premium sesame oil is good.

Since this is one of the oldest, they must be good. But it is the opposite. Imagine a main branch making and distributing pastry unable to commit 5 boxes the next day. It seems they are not interested with walk in customers. Conclusion is there are many pastry shops around. Miss going this place will not make you feel guilty.
