Always so packed with queues, no worries as foods are served quickly. Tasteful only if you are fancy of spicy foods. We had Nyonya Asam Pedas Sting Ray, curry fried rice, Nasi Lemak and Teh Tarik. All was satisfactory and came with generous portion. I ended up with sore throat afterwards because of the strong spices, but i will still... More

Food is acceptable but portion is small. Time of serving is acceptable. Service staff attitude need to improve.

Went once to the one in Pavilion KL two years back, was terrible. So I thought we will give it another try in Penang. It was equally bad too. We waited in line for more than 30 minutes to get a table. Then it took years for the drinks to be served. Food came later and it was nothing special... More

For diners who can brave a little more spice and heat, this small cafe in Gurney Plaza's basement serves up some delicious sambal and chilli flavors. With recommendation from some local friends, we ordered a table full of typical Penang Nyonya dishes. The food arrived without much delay. We lapped everything up with steamed rice in good time. The dishes... More

The service was below average. They had at least 4 male staff members standing at the counter chit chatting, and when I requested to order, the staff who came to take the order paper was not exactly friendly. Not sure why I ordered baked noodle in a "Nyonya" restaurant .. In the picture, it looked more like a creamy noodle,... More

Even if it is a mall based nyonya fast food restaurant. The food was quite decent. It doesn't compare to some local places I have eaten. But the set menu was particularly value as well as quite filling. Definitely worth a try if you're craving something different and at the mall. The nyonya chicken curry is really good. The desserts... More

We'd been looking for a food outlet we visited a couple of years ago but couldn't locate it so ended up in Little Nyonya. It was really busy and the food looked and smelled great so we were in! The menu is extensive with a broad range of cuisine but we were there for the Nyonya cuisine. Whilst our dishes... More

Visited here last time on our hunt for nyonya cuisine and boy it looked so appetizing and tasted yum. We tried their seafood.. squid, prawns.. everything was absolutely delicious.. would definitely visit them again if we were to visit penang again.. Good ambience, but service was slow that day (probably cos of the time we went.. weekend evening :O)

Whilst located in a shopping complex the service and quality of food was impressive. Try the pandan chicken, satay, nyonya dry curry noodle my best drink is ice coffee. I am sure there are many more great dishes given that they had managed to reproduce these signature nyonya dishes almost to perfection.
