Description: Kebaya is the dining room of the Seven Terraces and is open to hotel guests and the public. Open daily, 6pm till 10pm. Christopher Ong has worked with the hotel’s chefs to create a menu of a new approach to Classic Straits Chinese Nyonya dishes. They have refined these using French cooking techniques and innovative products to deliver surprising new twists on this already fascinating cuisine. The effect is simple, delicious full of flavor and dazzling. A four-course degustation menu of entrée, mains, vegetables and dessert is served in Chinese 'family-style' to allow guests to share the dishes.

Kebaya offers delicious food and is a must for anyone visiting Penang. The dining room offers an opportunity to step back in time to another world of bygone years. Dining at Kebaya is an experience, one to be savoured as much for the quality of the meal as the ambience of the surroundings. The staff are attentive, the menu offers highlights of the local cuisine, and it is all very reasonably priced. Visit and enjoy the experience!

We visited this restaurant this evening 14.10.22. We were very excited to be visiting this restaurant as it had been highly recommended. However - despite the fabulous setting and location the food was extremely disappointing. The starters came too quickly giving no time to enjoy a pre dinner cocktail. When they arrived they were very poor- puff pastry with few accompaniments- better in a supermarket. The main courses were no better. The two protein courses - (sea bass and prawns)and the rice were cold. The two vegetable dishes were the best part of a very poor meal- very expensive by Asian standards. We were very happy to pay the elevated price and did so but results were very poor. Even the white wine we ordered - a Sauvignon Blanc was not available and so we paid top dollar for a Semillion Sauvignon which was poorer than we’d previously bought in a cheap wine shop. Very disappointing!

Visited on 30 September after reviews seen on TA. Took an extremely cheap Grab from the E&O.
The restaurant is part of the 7 Terraces Hotel and is an extremely sympathetic conversation of seven former Shop Houses.
We did not book but were lucky to get a table.
The waiting staff were first class and we enjoyed our Nonya dishes from the set menu that had a slightly European twist. The prawns were particularly good and my wife enjoyed the very generous lamb shank.
The wine was very keenly priced and with coffee our bill was just under £100. All in all very satisfied.

We just ate here three nights straight. By far the nicest restaurant in Penang. The food is complex and beautiful. The team, especially Dinesh and Vincent, are proud of what they do and for very good reason. We will come back again and again.
