Place was hard to find, but if you find the lifts, go up to floor 2. We arrived quite late in the evening, and restaurant was empty. We are so pleased that this didn’t deter us. We received a rally warm welcome. Food cooked fresh...o order. I had sizzling beef, husband had honey pork and fried rice. Huge portions, and we could have shared. 3 beers, a big meal and all for approx £25. Please give this lovely little place a try.More

What a lovely place to relax and enjoy fantastic food. Liang and loon make you feel so welcome. Its only a small place so they can talk to you,but you cannot fault the food all cooked fresh, or the wine! Its a little hidden gem...but if you know where Andrews Kampong restaurant is its just round the corner. Give it s go you wont be disappointed.More

I first tried K&F in April last year. I immediately fell in love with the food. The restaurant is a homey unassuming place that serves dishes that pull to the heartstrings. I went back in 2023 and the quality didn’t dip at all. Recommendations: 1....Pineapple Prawns 2. Sizzling Beef 3. Crispy Pork in Vinegar. Don’t take my word for it. Look how we cleaned our plates after the meal!More

This restaurant just reopened after being closed for a year following an unfortunate accident to the owner. The food was delicious! Highlights include the sizzling chicken with cashew nuts and pineapple prawns. Hosts so friendly. Impressive….. A must try when staying in Batu Ferringhi.

Efficient service and well priced. Our kids love sweet and sour anything so they were happy. Will re-visit and try a few of the not so standard dishes.

This must be the best Chinese food in all of Penang! We wiped the dishes clean. It was absolutely AMAZING and DELICIOUS! We had the sweet and spicy pork, onion fried egg and Crispy Pineapple Fish. The hosts were super duper friendly too and they...were always smiling even with only 2 of them in the whole restaurant. Really well done! I will definitely come back the next time we're in Penang. Thank you for the delicious food and service.More

We visited Knife and Fork based on these reviews and we were not disappointed! The location is a little unusual, it is opposite the Golden Sands hotel on the second floor of a shopping complex- please do not be put off by the location.. We...were greeted by Liang who is just wonderful, the sweetest, most enthusiastic, hard working lady. We were travelling from the UK with our 2 young daughters who are yet to develop a love for Asian food.. Liang could not have been more helpful and made some plain fried ‘popcorn’ chicken and fries for them. Myself and husband had local cuisine which was just fabulous and all freshly made to order. Liang is not only front of house but also chef and waitress! We visited here twice during our trip and wish we had gone sooner in our trip to have visited more. A must visit when in Batu Ferringhi.. Thank you so much Liang and family, we will return when we come back to Penang.More

When you read the reviews you think what’s this all about? So we went and try for ourselves and have to agree with all the reviews. This place is a little gem in Battu Ferringhi. We struggled to find as it’s on the second floor...of a little shopping/food center. The restaurant run by a couple with their son helping out in cleaning. The food home cooked upon ordering. All fresh ingredients, very good quality meat and fish! We enjoyed the sizzling beef, vegetables and sweet and sour prawns with fried rice. The portions are generous and the service is super friendly. The lady keeps smiling! If in this neighbourhood it’s a must try! Simply a wonderful experience with delicious food!More

Food is generally good, designed more for western sweet/deep fat flavours compared to other Chinese food nearby. The owners were great hosts and the ambience of the place is great. Worth a visit but only order small portions unless you are really hungry and they...are quite big sizes.More
