This restaurant receives a high 4.5 on Trip Advisor and is rated as No. 8 in Penang.
I loved the surroundings - nice greenery. The food was ok. I guess if you had not had such good local food as hubby and I on our day out with Swee Long then you could be excused for thinking this restaurant was the best. Our new friends thought it was pretty good.... and it was.... but we had other tastes to compare it with and to be honest, it just was not up there with the top local food that we had. (Check out my day out with Swee Long travelogue).
Anyway, nevertheless, I would recommend the Batu Ferringhi Garden Restaurant as we enjoyed the cozy atmosphere and the food was pretty good ;o) Plus it was an easy walk along the beach to the left from the Parkroyal Hotel.

Magic 1 Restaurant right on the main street of Batu Ferrenghi opposite the Golden Sands Resort was my favourite restaurant. We visited 2 times. The first time I had a Lamb Shank in thick tomato sauce and the meat was tender, tasty and fell off the bone. It was the best Lamb Shank that I have ever had. See Pic 2. I am drooling right now thinking about it! :o)
The second time we went, our friend had the same and Howie had Lobster (Pic 3). The Lobster was supurb.
I can see why it has rave reviews on Trip Advisor, earning a big 4 and voted the 11th best restaurant in Penang. The atmosphere was comfortable, food delicious, decorations tasteful and staff attentative. (See Pic 4).
I highly recommend this restaurant.

What amazing food at this little place. The choices are mind boggling – everything from Roti to Tandori – Rice to Dahl – and all very, very fresh. We ate here a couple of times and the place was always packed with locals – even lining up down the sidewalk. Highly recommend the roti with chicken – spicy – cooked freshly and brought to the table.
Favorite Dish: Tandori and Roti were spectacular.

Judging by the number of people who were at this restaurant, I’d say this place is pretty much an institution in Penang. Really good food – cheap – great atmosphere, but try to sit away from the stage area – it got a little loud. A lot of variety – really good seafood. Also – a really cool little ice cream stall selling waffle cones!! Some of the staff can become a little aggressive - especially when you do not want to buy the beer that is on promotion that night!!
Favorite Dish: Seafood with Rice. Ice cream with waffle cones.

Having seen this Malaysian chain before, i was never able to try it out until i visited New World park in Penang. Old Town White Coffee is the first shop on your left as you enter the New world premises. It has a nice open air atmosphere and lovely music you can chill out to.
The array of dishes offered were limited, but we could not decide between a few choices. They all seemed Delicious!
Finally me and Nishi settled for the Ginger Chicken rice and the Chicken meatloaf noodles. Definitely the right choice.
Price range is between MYR 6.50 and 13 per dish. Not the cheapest option in Penang for a meal. But hey... All good things come at a price ;-) Do try it ut if in Malaysia anytime in the future!:-)

The Cliff Cafe, its newly opened in Penang Hill, looking over the scenic view of the lush green. You can spent a few hours here.
My aunty from Singapore, was a bit upset, complaining of walking too long distance, her knee pain, so boring in the Penang Hill. See pic 1, you can see how bored she was, what a pity, and guessing the food at Cliff Cafe won't be that good in Penang Road. Well, when the food, we ordered came..the Char Kuih Teow, Chicken Satay and Cendul - wow, she kept quiet and enjoyed her food, she likes the Satay Peanut Sauce a lot.
Every corner in Penang, you can find good food to eat.
Favorite Dish: There are 13 food and drink stalls at Cliff Cafe. The best Char Kuih Teow cooked by Aunty Ngooi Yeon Sim and Chicken Satay, in 1st level. Ice Kacang and Cendul from 2nd level..

Eating at Lorong Selamat, another famous eating place in Penang for tourist and me. I usually bring my friends and family to eat here as I dont know any other places to go, hehehe..
Favorite Dish: Lorong Selamat a place you shouldn't miss to eat the Special Char Koey Teow (stir-fried flat noodles with cockles, chinese sausage, bean sprouts, chinese chives and Big juicy Prawns).
The Lorbak and prawn fritters was very good than new world park.
Ice kacang - what I like best..
Food is bit expensive for Penang standard. Char Koey Teow was $7.50 a plate, I can eat 2 plates with the amount of price in Sungai Petani and other coffeeshop in Penang and its still cheaper than in Cambodia. :-)))

New World Park was formerly an amusement park, it was abandoned for many years until it opened again in 2008, as you can see, they still retained the old wall. Enter inside, you see this huge food court that offering local Penang delicacies.
Please read more on:
Favorite Dish: My favourite dessert should be Ice Kacang, you can have Ice Kacang with Ice cream or with more fresh mix fruits on top..but I still prefered the original Ice Kacang without Ice cream.
Then try the lobak and praws fritters, hmmm...not that good here..but just ok..
Anyway, try other food like Char Koay Teow, fried oysters, Chee Cheung Fan, and many more delicacies..

Address: on other side to the Hard Rock Hotel
This rather posh Indian restaurant has a richly decorated interior with soft lighting and drappes. Food is served on a banana leaf (see one of my photos) and isn't badly priced - I had a very rich chicken madras, rice, naan, puppodums and beer for RM38.50. They serve a comprehensive menu which you can view on their website below. Good stuff with good service.
