I have always loved visiting Penang for its famous char kway teow and chendol. When I heard about gurney drive, I invited my friends to try it out.
It was so so disappointing. We ordered 1 prawn and crayfish noodle at $10.90, premium char kway teow at $10.90. When the char kway teow arrived, there was no squid at all though the menu states that. The waitress replaced it for me. The squid was so so tiny and only less than 5 pieces. The cockles was so mini too. To think it states that premium, meaning that the ingredients are more and better than the normal char kway teow. The whole portion was so so pathetic.
The worst had to be the dessert. The so called famous chendol is worse from those served in the food court. The chendol was frozen. It's like biting ice. I only had a few mouths and decided to stop. It was very horrible. The waiter served the chendol in a bowl full of ice, when you gently stir the ice, it will flow from the bowl.
I did not expect such standards at all and it is a total waste of money. I will never dine in anymore and will advise people not to dine in.
Overall, Gurneydrive totally disgrace the food from Penang. Trust me, Penang definitely serves good char kway teow and chendol ANYWHERE in Penang.
