First of all foreigners need to learn one thing - Char kuay teow is traditional Chinese food. In fact the name means friend rice thick flat noodles in Hokkien dialect (the same language spoken in Taiwan). Authentic char kuay teow recipes use loads of pork...lard, without which, is the same as eating American/English breakfast with fake bacon. Other than the lack of pork lard, you want to go to the famous char kuay teow stalls in Georgetown cooked by Malaysian Chinese Char kuay teow cooks. This malay version is like pretending a malay cooking coq au vin is the real deal.More

People in Penang have their favourite places to buy this wonderful dish [hence the wide variety of reactions to Mady's version]. BUT, one also has a choice of many other dishes-- all of which are "much more than acceptable"! If you were at the nearby...beach or wish to visit the night market this makes Mady's an even better choice! If it's busy--- there is a great reason... and, don't be surprised!More

Totally not a char kway teow. Regret. Service quite slow. Go to Sani char kway teow which is much better and cheaper.

By the roadside among from the others.. there is none other serves malay styled char koay teow.. either from two choices...a wet plate or a fried dry...which you need to inform. One could order from the menu..coconuts..satay...let the person recommends what dishes you prefer. Each...stall varies its cooking...family recipies...learn from others...whatever that is.. try it today.More

If you're a char kt sucker u should really try this! I would recommend both wet and dry style, but the wet is really good. It is one of the most authentic malay style char with fresh shrimps (only 2-4pc though) and fresh crunchy bean...sprouts. Service was quite bad as there were many customers, but it was worth it especially when you're too lazy to get out from batu feringghi areaMore

This place is not a huge restaurant but the taste is definitely a 5 star standard. And the most important is Halal. Give it a try ...my son ate 2 plate and still craving for more the next day.
