The food here is very expensive, it is overrated. I would recommend a better food quality in Penang other than this restaurant.

Not bad for a curry fish head but ain't the best I have tried. 4 person for about RM150 with GST inclusive. Cash payment terms only and tough to find parking.

One of the best meals I've had of late. Living in London and working internationally I've sampled some really swanky dining and this easily falls into the first class category in terms of flavour and freshness. Don't let the rustic facade that greets you as...More

77 Restaurant is an unpretentious and small place. It doesn't look promising from the outside, but it lives up to its name: Restoran 77 Famous Curry Fish Head. The Fish Head Curry is excellent. Rich curry broth and a meaty fish head. The fried calamari,...More
