The No.5 Bistro, commits to the concept of Local Infused Food. Of course, what is a dinner without a drink? No.5 Bistro has also prepared a beverage menu which covers a wide array of beverage to enhance the night. Danny Ng, a local Penangite, with knowledge in Western gastronomy, founded the No.5 Bistro with the purpose of creating a hangout spot where people can unwind in a casual setting after working hours. To quote the man himself, “ #letshavefun.”
