Restaurant may not look like much from the outside, but the food is very good, flavoursome and great value. Generous servings that could easily be shared. Would recommend over a lot of the more tourist focussed restaurants in the area. Need to be aware that...no alcohol is served in this restaurant.More

Whenever you travel, there is always the one place that stands out. For us, we ended our stay in Penang with an incredible dinner. Thank you and kudos to the chef and staff! The food was superbly excellent! 1. Hanith lamb was soft and the...meat was cooked perfectly. The meat fell off the bones and my boy enjoyed it most. 2. Zurbian chicken was a generous portion and tasted amazing. The rice was delicious and the chicken was fantastic. 3. The Kunafa was splendid!!! It was the most delicious dessert of our stay. I wish I had space for another one! All in all, it a place people should definitely go to and eat when in Penang. Humble staff and delicious meal.More

We found this restaurant by accident. We chose it bevause it looked clean and the menu options were special. The tabouleh was great. Very fresh and light. The falafel plate was generous, including pita bread, hummus, two dips and a small greek salad along with...the falafel. A lamb kabob sandwich was tender and well spiced. The baklava we ordered for dessert was wonderful. We ordered a second portion to take away. Highly reommend this restaurant.More

This is a great place to get Turkish-influenced chicken, lamb, and roti dishes. Great service by the manager and waiters. Terrific food. During the COVID crisis, best to call ahead to let them know you're coming. Better yet, place your order the morning of your...evening dinner.More
