I've waited until the end of my holiday to review this so that I can say, without any doubt, that this was the best chicken I ate on my trip. Possibly more famous for the eponymous s(o)up but well worth ordering the instant noodles with chicken for tasty, chunky meat with delicious crispy skin. Open all hours, which (after arriving...

After a late night this place was a welcome stop. I had the mutton soup, which was decent but not the finest example of the dish. A plate of nasi goreng was also quite good, the perfect soak for too many drinks. Scruffy looking but cheap and I suffered no ill effects after dining

Best Oxtail soup in Penang. Perfect for that recovery day and prices are ridiculously cheap. Always visit when in Penang for Soup Eko, mi goreng and an iced lemon tea. Great Street food.

I got high hopes for this soup after reading up over the internet. What I got was really tough meat, watered down soup, instead of being thick and rich, the flavour was so diluted. Will not recommend. Really disappointing. I love Sup Kambing, and this is a poor version of it.

Restoran Sup Hameed, which is opposite Hotel Malaya at Jalan Penang normally crowded with diners. Their sup ayam is superb and comes with slices of bread for dipping in the soup. Their prices are reasonable and service ok as they have a lot of workers. Get a table at the five foot way and can watch passerby including traffic....sitting inside... More

The food here is good, but really not worth the higher price you pay compared to foods in hawker markets and stalls around Georgetown. Using your own senses to find great food, is much more rewarding, and cheaper. Those stalls you find that are not touristy, will usually look after you very well, maybe they take pitty on dumb tourists,... More

Conducted an amazing race for a client and requested to use their restaurant for an activity. Not only did the owner allow us but he didn't charge anything for the food used in the game. Also enjoyed some of the best soup in town. A must visit when in Penang!

Simple local food. Haven't eaten too many different things here but the roti canai are fantastic, served with a bowl of curry for MR1.20 is pretty hard to beat
