Description: Kebaya is the diningroom of the Seven Terraces and is open to hotel guests and the public.Open daily, 7pm till 10pm.Christopher Ong has worked with the hotel’s chefs to create a menu of classic Indo and Straits Chinese Nyonya dishes. They have refined these using French cooking techniques and innovative produce to deliver surprising new twists on this already fascinating cuisine.The effect is simple, delicious full of flavour and dazzling.A four course degustation menu of entrée, main course, vegetables and dessert is served in Chinese style to allow guests to share the dishes. The Baba Bar is open daily from 2pm onwards, with live piano music in a very intimate setting.

Yum yum yum!, started with entre - otak2x to die for, main prawn curry and vegetable stir fry, end with best desert pandan creme brûlée. Service were great throughout. Located at the 7 terrace hotel. Nothing to fault, Highly recommended, affordable 4 course set menu with fusion (Malay-Chinese) dishes. Tip: book first before you come.

Restaurant is in the beautiful seven terraces boutique hotel. Dining room is charming and has been renovated to a high standard, making for a great setting.

Food is equally good and whilst expensive compared to elsewhere we felt made for a pleasant evening in George Town. Service was excellent. Staff polite and not to intrusive when asking about food.

It's top scale restaurant but you should definitely go there to try local delicacy. They have pre-fix menu with a lot of varieties. The food was delicious, the staff was very friendly and helpfull and the whole venue is very nice. Great place to celebrate your vacations in Malaysia!

Booked one day ahead for a Thursday night. Arrived about 15 minutes early and had a well made Whisky Sour in the bar area.

It took a while to be asked to be seated at my table - I was the first one to arrive at the restaurant, but by the time I was seated there were others already seated so I presume my table had been prepared but the staff had forgotten I was at the bar? Or they give priority to hotel guests - cannot really confirm this, just speculating on the reason I got ignored for a while. Also, the table was not the best table in the room, I would have liked to have had some view of the piano player but this was well hidden from me.

The food was sublime - I went for the Otak Otak starter which was red snapper in puff pastry served with a lovely yellow curry sauce. Then I had the Lor Ark which is some of the best duck I've eaten - the soft duck, caramelised plum and oranges and the spicy sauce worked so well together. At one point I was enjoying this so much, I hadn't even noticed the waitress had come over to ask me how it was. Finally, I had the Pandan Creme Brûlée, which was heavenly - a local spin on creme brûlée, this was better then I expected and well crafted.

I asked for a wine/port pairing for each of the courses - the waitress recommended for each and they were spot on complimenting the food very well. I liked that the staff could provide good pairing recommendations as it made my life easier and added to the already excellent experience.

I also enjoyed the live piano in the background, the china dishes and the relaxed, casual ambience in the dining room. It was really classy and excellent value when you compare to something similar in London. In total, it was around £50-60 for everything - maybe expensive for Penang but not if you are looking for the entire dining experience to be looked after.

Highly recommend.
