We had a nice evening with a great chinese menu even lobster and abalone. The chef of this house and his family are pretty good in hospitality.

One of the finest chinese fine dining restaurant on Penang Island. It is always a pleasure to be able to dine in Chin's place. The ambience is romantic, suitable for both friends and family gathering, as well as for couple. For backpackers, it is very convenient to get to this place too, as it is located next to the ferry...

A colleague of mine who's from Penang recommended this Chinese restaurant, so on a recent visit to the island my wife and I decided to give it a try. We were not disappointed. On every level Chin's delivered. The atmosphere and decor are great, from the hand-painted plates to the art on the walls this place is quite something. We... More

Our fourth visit recently to this impeccable Chinese modern restaurant by the sea with a view of the Marina in downtown George Town. Unlike many here, this restaurant has maintained its initial quality and even improved on it. The baroque decoration is the same, service as attentive and the food is original, creative and overall excellent. Best of all is... More

I didn't have any prior information about this restaurant so wasn't expecting much but was pleasantly surprised as the food was delectable! We had a 14 course meal, which offered many varieties of food to taste, and every dish was fresh and delicious. The restaurant is also located atop the ocean and along the waterfront, which provides a beautiful setting.

We visited as a party of four and had an excellent meal. The wine list was eclectic with some very good bottles from all over the world. We had a French Chablis which beautifully complimented a steamed fresh water fish, BBQ prawn skewers, hot sour fern vegetable, bitter gourd and green beans. The flavours were distinct and unique, service pleasant... More

This is a very stylish restaurant at the Jeti Jalan Gereja, offering fine dining on Chinese cuisine. The set up is western classic mixed with exaggerated modern murals and a bit of oriental taste. The waiters are very professional and nice, with warm greetings and good suggestion on food. The Chinese cuisine they offer are so authentic that you don't... More
