First night we arrived in George Town. In desperate need for something cold to drink and what better place than The Tavern for this.. Located directly on a very busy street it is a excellent place for people-watching. Good selection of beers as well .

Really enjoyed that moment, the waiter (Sid) was really helpful and welcome. I have appreciated the way he was talking to the customers and I loved the music. A musician was playing guitar.thanks a lot.

Called in get a cold beer after slogging the streets of George Town. There seems to be a lack of beer stops in George Town so this was a real surprise. Very smart inside and cool too. Very clean too. Beer was really cold and went down a treat! Didn't eat but menu looked good.

We were just passing as we were waiting for Tek Sen restaurant to open. Looked good inside so we popped in, it was really nice, three shop houses knocked into one bar/restaurant. We had the happy hour special 3 glasses of house wine (Chardonnay or Pinot Gris) for 55RM. Atmosphere relaxed and with quite jazz playing in background, looks like...

I am not sure if I went to the right place but Chulia Court was mentioned to have great seafood spaghetti aglio oglio. The photos of the place was the same as in the food blog that highly recommend this place. I went to this place back in Dec 2016 and revisited it recently. I had the same dish which...

Thank you HaruKenchiru for your visit. We are sorry to hear that your expectation of the aglio olio was a let down. For the record, we do not and did not have spaghetti aglio olio seafood in the menu. Our spaghetti aglio olio is with vegetables good for vegetarians.

The service was great on the sunday but a bit slower on the monday when we were one of only a few customers , but friendly enough. Ultimately this...

Perfect for solo travelers looking for some privacy! Less than $20 USD a night for a clean and super comfortable single room with ensuite bathroom. Very impressed by the bed at this price point. The room had frosted windows, which let light in but maintained privacy. Air con and fan, hot water rain shower, even TV with HBO and BBC....

I found this place incredibly relaxing - please note we stayed for a tea and a coffee and not in the guest house. I had missed this on the menu but you get free refills. The decor was beautiful and the staff very attentive.

Food and drinks listed are not inclusive of GST(tax). The F&B here is alright in the day but not recommended in the night. Dj at the night is horrible, the songs are so bland and not mixed well.

Dear Drink D. Boring is when some people do not possess the ability to better their own business but instead run down those that do well so as to make themselves feel better. Smear campaigns are only launched on the successful and the popular. We will let the other reviews speak for us. There are people who prefer some class...
