Food was amazing we went around 6pm for dinner and the restaurant was packed we found a table and picked some food off the menu. It was a little confusing as it seams they don't actually serve everything on the menu they serve the sets....More

Its easy to find. Located next to main road & opposite Little India. The food was ok nothing special except for the Roti Nan. Restaurant it self not so clean, have to wait 10 minutes for the waiter to clean it up.

I came to this restaurant for breakfast before starting my day (to walk around Georgetown). Ordered 'roti canai telur' and 'roti sardin'...and they tasted so good. A must try food place if you visit Georgetown, Penang.

Chaotic. Went there because heard that it was a good place for a meal. It was right next to an open sewer so was unappetising from the get go. Tried to get a table but was ignored even when we asked. We ended up leaving.

You punya waiters sangat kurang ajar, berlagak eksyen! Diorang tu ada ic ka? Management kedai takda ajar cara nak layan customer?! Duit dah banyak sangat ka?!

Hello Restoran Kapitan. I would like very much to see if we can talk. I am interested in a Kapitan restoran where I live. I want to learn how you make good food and make it here in my city. You food is the best I had in Pilou Penang, so hope I can make it for some people here.
