I just want to share my experience with this bar. I didn’t have enough money because I forgot to include the service charge with my computation with my total order. The staff let me go but I can’t manage to do that so I decided...to come back and return the change. For food, I ordered this fried noodle that had some twist on it. 4 out of 5 for me, taste amazing! The nachos are decent. Just like other nachos you can eat but the serving is good for more than 2-3 people. I went there by Thursday night so the crowd was not that much but they had a live singer inside the restaurant which had a great vibes towards the whole ambiance. The place looks so modern and aesthetically pleasing.More

Nice place with option to dine alfresco or indoors. Service was quick too. We had two different types of pork burgers and an avocado salad. The avocado feta salad was really good. Came up to about RM170 for lunch.

Sounded like a good idea. Seriously disappointing. For a place that advertises themselves as a wine bar, they have just TWO wines by the glass. Ordered the Angus burger. Not available. Ordered the steak with no sauce and asked about mustard. They didn’t know what...it was. After the waitress confirms they do have mustard, I order the steak with mustard and no sauce and confirmed the steak is with vegetables and fries. Steak arrives with sauce and mashed potatoes 🙄. Manager then makes a fleeting appearance with the fries, but no apology. Steak was tough and vegetables tossed in basically raw garlic. Neighboring table sitting right under Non Smoking sign vaping and staff choose to ignore it. Service was attentive but not trained.More

We've having a good time here at the barn. We love the food and their promotion cocktails. Lovely staff, special mention to Resty and Lenny who do a excellent service. We will be back soon because of them.

Thank you for the special atmosphere and hospitality. The choice of food and drinks is excellent. We had dinner here several times and were very satisfied each time. The waiters are very helpful and always fulfill the wishes of the order. Separately, I want to...mention our favorite Lenny & Aidan & Raiwon. Unfortunately, I don't remember the name of the girl who served us also. But I really want the management to notice such wonderful employees! We will definitely come back to Penang and visit Barn again ❤️❤️❤️More

My wife & I visited her twice this month for a late lunch. Both times we ordered fish & chips and Salmon Trout. Both times were delicious and the service was great. We sat indoor at our favorite corner bench table. Music is nice &...we really enjoy our time here the past few years. Both times we enjoyed a chilled bottle of white wine. We shall easily return should the opportunity present itself.More

Good that The Barn is open and you can now enjoy both a drink and a meal provided you've been double-jabbed. We had a great evening the other day and enjoyed the food along with the chance to actually sit outside and enjoy a 'dine...in' repast. Lenny, the young assistant, was helpful as was another young man whose name we missed. If you're in Penang, it's definitely worth a visit.More

We visited this establishment for "brunch". we had the choice of a set menu or ala-carte. With the latter you also got access to soup and salad bar both of which were excellent value. The salad bar in particular was fresh and extensive and could...have been a meal in itself. We opted for the bangers and mash which was served hot and delicious. The staff were attentive throughout our visit. Well DoneMore

I wonder why The Barn restaurant chain could survive. I do not see it worth at all. Wine list looked ok, but lots of unavailable good wines, only poor quality or overpriced wines are available. Is this called misrepresentation, if it is not fraud... ?...Wagyu ribeye was not impressive, although it was acceptable, it was just average while you can find much nicer steak at other places nearby. Overall, it was a disappointing experience.More
