Excellent steak! I ordered a medium rare fillet steak with a glass red cabernet sauvignon...yummy. Would be even better if aged first...Will definitely cone back again on next trip to Penang.

Google "steak" and this place came on top. It's actually not. Maybe advertising involved? Bland, tasteless steak. If you are hungry enough and looking for a tummy filling steak, can go for it. It is not pricey at all. Maybe should change the shop name...to "non steak" house better to reflect the business as others dishes are actually not bad! Overall comment: don't call yourself a steak house. This is cheating.More

John was most helpful, juggling his bookings to get us in late. Staff almost jumped to guide us to our table on arrival. A mix up (our fault) over dishes served was very efficiently and politely resolved. Very good steaks, sides and fresh salad. I...had been having trouble finding a quality western restaurant in the area. Emily’s fully fits the bill.More

We stopped by Emily’s Steakhouse last night. Despite not having reservations, the house manager, John was able to seat us and worked his magic making us feel welcome and comfortable. We were glad to get there early as the restaurant filled up quickly and reservations...are recommended. John suggested some great menu options and at the end told us where to go for some night life. Thank you for a great night!More

I went without any reservation in saturday evening. It was everything full but John the manager found a solution and let me seat on a table which usually is a Kind of reception. I was very happy about that. The food was just great and...the quality was extremely good! So I reccomend this restaurant both for the food and for the management. Even the waiters were very kind! Everything perfect!!!! I’ll come back for sure!More

My wife and I have been travelling in Malaysia for a couple of weeks, thoroughly enjoying the local Malaysian cuisine. However, family had recently visited Emily’s and told us how much they enjoyed their meal there. My wife was craving a good steak so was...very keen to go. I’m a pescatarian so was less enthused but happy to tag along. We were warmly greeted by John, Emily’s manager. The team at Emily’s are very professional, well trained, attentive but not imposing, and know restaurant etiquette. My wife ordered an eye filet which was cooked to perfection. As a fish lover, and even though Emily’s is primarily a steakhouse, the menu did not leave me out - I had the king prawn thermidor which was superb! Lobster quality without the lobster price. We also enjoyed a lovely bottle of Merlot from Chile. Emily, the owner of the restaurant group, was visiting during our visit and took the time to chat with us, even sitting at our table for perhaps thirty minutes as we enjoyed a broad ranging conversation about her story, our travels, family life and more. Emily graciously provided us with dessert on the house - their special apple crumble and ice cream. We enjoyed a lovely evening and can only recommend Emily’s to anyone who is looking for a high quality meal away from the local style. Emily’s unashamedly has its own formula that it happily follows and this is what makes it a success.More

Can’t rave about this place enough! We were here for my dad’s birthday lunch. Had the tomahawk for sharing, the steak was cooked perfectly, very tasty and the table service was the cherry on top! The menu wasn’t restricted to just steaks, there are plenty...of other dishes to choose from. Service was excellent, very attentive staff and speedy. The manager, John was very helpful and kind. They even reserved us a table with good lighting as my dad has some visual restrictions in dark places especially on days like today where it’s always cloudy and gloomy! Highly recommended if you are in the area!More

Brought my relatives from abroad to dine-in at one of the finest steakhouses in the heart of Georgetown. Easily accessible by walking distance from the hotel. Angus. Rump. Medium-well.

Had a lovely dinner experience with my parents. The Chef’s Salad and the Signature Steak Pot was absolutely delicious. We followed the dinner with the Apple Crumble, a light and crunchy desert that left us feeling pleasantly full. The staff was of great service -...specifically John Koh the manager, that took the time to talk to us and made sure we were having a pleasant time. Overall, would recommend in a heartbeat!More
