We had a delicious dinner at Jawi House Cafe Gallery. We arrived for dinner at the last minute without a reservation and they were so accommodating finding space for us although the restaurant was very busy. The food was delicious; really complex, flavourful, and well spiced. The ambience was relaxing and a refreshing break from the busy city centre (although it is very centrally located). The service was attentive, polite, and helpful. We’re only in Penang for 3 nights but we will be returning for a second dinner at Jawi House.

Amazing lamb briyani with homemade ginger beer in an air conditioned restaurant.
Waitress's recommendation was spot on. Definitely worth a visit.

This is a small place on the curved section of Armenia St which is well worth seeking out. The food is great, the service good.

Enjoyed a nice vegetarian lunch. Everything was good except for one small problem. Our waiter, who also seemed to be the manager, gave me the wrong information and I ordered something I didn't like. I'm sure it was an honest mistake but one that can be crucial in the restaurant game.

This is a small restaurant tucked away in George Town. The staff as very friendly and the food is excellent quality. We ordered a huge selection of food between 4 of us. They advised this might be too much food, they were right, however every dish was delicious. Excellent value for money and highly recomended.
