I've been going to this small cafe just around the corner from the Golden Sands hotel for over 40 years and the food has not changed one bit due to the skills being kept in the family. Fairly limited stir fry / Chinese menu but...cooked to perfection with a cold beer from the seller next door. Great way to spend an hour or two giving the sunbathing a restMore

Good local food, cheap and very cheerful. The beer is very cold offsetting the heat from the kitchens and the concrete surrounds., but what atmosphere. Been coming here for 30 years and will continue to do so.

We had lunch here 3 times on our holiday, and the food was great and fantastic value. Found inbetween the Golden Sands and Lone Pine Hotel, it may not look like much but the food is incredible.

we had our lunch there since it is very near to Golden Sands Hotel while waiting for check in. A bit difficult to locate the cafe. It serves Chinese food. We ordered fried hokkien mee, sizzling chicken rice and omelette. The taste is good. The...price is reasonable, about RM7 per plate. The only downside is the place is hot, does not have aircon or even electric fan.More

Great food! Great prices! Great people! Our first port of call when we get to Penang. Try the lunchtime specials or a sizzling chicken. Washed down with an iced Tiger. One of the best lunchtime venues in Penang
