  • Flavours of Penang: Exploring Malaysia’s Food Capital, from Michelin-Starred Feasts to Street Eats – Luxury Escapes Magazineluxuryescapes.com
Kebaya is the dining room of the Seven Terraces and is open to hotel guests and the public. Open daily, 6pm till 10pm. Christopher Ong has worked with the hotel’s chefs to create a menu of a new approach to Classic Straits Chinese Nyonya dishes. They have refined these using French cooking techniques and innovative produce to deliver surprising new twists on this already fascinating cuisine. The effect is simple, delicious full of flavour and dazzling. A four course degustation menu of entrée, mains, vegetables and dessert is served in Chinese 'family-style' to allow guests to share the dishes. The Baba Bar is open daily from 2pm onwards, with live piano music in a very intimate setting.

It was a late notice and we managed to grab a booking at Kebaya, thank you. The service (led by Dinesh) was genuine and wonderful. He and his co-workers took the time to explain the food cooking in details, especially with the chicken dish that...we ordered. The setting of the whole dining area gave my wife and I the 'true eating' experience. The utensils, plates, bowls and even the water jar were antiques on its own.They threw us back in 1950's time - High ceiling with the fans running cooled down the whole sitting area. It was a very comfortable environment. The 3 courses that we had was just right - not under or over fed. The garden area leading to the rest room was a relaxing place to stay for 5 minutes - admiring the tranquility of the hotel itself. The transportation to the restaurant was so easy. My own personal advice is to gather 8 people and therefore you can order more different dishes to share. It will be a wonderful experience. You just go back in time to experience the colonial time of luxury. It was a wonderful experience for myself and my wife. Thank you Dinesh and the team.More

It was my first time dining in Kebaya Dining Room as an invited guest of a business dinner. The restaurant is located in an old section of Georgetown inside a conservation hotel : Seven Terrace. The restaurant has the vibe to teleport to the past...and perfectly decorated with traditional Baba/Nyonya History. It has marble tables & wooden chairs & make it as comfort as dining at someone's dining room. I had the vegetarian set & the dishes were served in an unique round box. I enjoyed the dishes tremendously. My colleagues & business associates have enjoyed : - otak otak crispy puff pie - loh ark (duck confit with spice & orange) - soft shell crab salad - hong bak lamb (meat was tender that could be easily off the bones) The dishes were delicious, well executed with wonderful balance of flavor. Overall it was an excellent culinary experience + wonderful companions (lot of laughter) in a historical building. My german bosses had enjoyed the night tremendously. .. but i belueve the price is on the high side too. The service was prompt & staff are friendly. The courtyard also present excellent photos opportunity. It is definately worth checking out at least once. Regards ML LEONG SINGAPOREMore

As part of our stay at The Seven Terraces Hotel we had one evening meal at their restaurant Kebaya-having read the trip adviser reviews. It certainly did not disappoint- the food was delicious especially the sea bass starter. June our waitress couldn't have been any...more attentive and recommended the beef which my husband said was lovely. She also recommended the prawns- delicious too. Definitely would go back there and the hotel if travel to Penang again.More

My husband and I, traveling to Penang for the first time, were recommended Kebaya by a friend living in Penang this past weekend. This restaurant far exceeded our expectations. The warm greeting we received upon entering by Dinesh (who periodically checked on us throughout the...evening), the delicious drinks (both mocktails & cocktails) served up by Gungu and the outstanding service (and menu advice) provided by June, made for an absolutely perfect evening... and this is before mentioning the food. Living in Singapore, our food standards are fairly high, and I can say this was the best dinner we've had in over a year. The prawn dish (which I almost didn't order) was the shining star of the evening (thank you June, for convincing me to try!), and I would say a must for all who visit. None of the 6 dishes & 3 desserts we ordered fell short, all were fantastic, but I am still dreaming of the prawns. This restaurant is an absolute must for all traveling to Penang. It is housed in a lovely row of shophouses that are actually a hotel. The area is charming, the shophouses are beautiful, and the restaurant is very memorable in atmosphere, decor, service and food. If we had had a chance to eat there a 2nd time in our long weekend, we certainly would have. If we return to Penang, it is sure to be a first stop.More

Thank you for the great hospitality and service rendered to our family during our first lunch at the Kebaya Dining Room. The food, service and ambiance were top-notch. We will certainly be back. Am glad we were able to have a spot yesterday for the...special occasion. We were fortunate to be able to try all the dishes, and we love all the dishes. Shoutout to Syahrul, Wendy and the rest of the crew! You are the best.More

Came back after a year and they still surprised us with sumptuous nyonya fusion food. Sticky plum duck leg, hong bak lamb shank & tamarind glazed beef are must-try.
