Ferringhi Garden Restaurant

I was in Penang last weekend for a workshop. I stayed at the Parkroyal Penang along Batu Ferringhi but didn’t get a chance to step near the beautiful gardens, pool or the beach. I did, however, have dinner at this delightful restaurant, Ferringhi Garden Restaurant, five minutes walk away from Parkroyal Penang.

The restaurant is surrounded by an exceptionally well landscaped garden while its interior is tastefully decorated. It’s a big restaurant with our group of about 80 people occupying the front part of the restaurant, a small wedding reception occupying the back, and plenty of tables in the open air dining area in the gardens.

I didn’t look at the menu though as our dinner was pre-ordered but there’s apparently a huge selection of Chinese and Western dishes. We had prawn salad as starters, broccoli soup with garlic bread, grilled fish/chicken with prawn, and egg custard with ice cream for dessert. Food was good, with excellent presentation but service was a tad slow, maybe due to our large group and the wedding reception.

Looks like a nice environment but the food portion really small.

Mybabybay - the food portion is a tad small, but with the starters, soup, garlic bread and all, it was quite filling in the end.
