Great with friends and family

It's not the best Penang food that I've had but it's definitely worth going back frequently for its price.

Its ice-blended Ampla Juice is also my staple drink even though I'm not a fruit juice person to begin with.

I will keep going back as long the restaurant maintains the quality and portions of the food now without raising the price.

Very Disappointing & Expensive & Lack of Aircon!

Dear Readers, this is my 4th RE-POSTING. My previous 3 posts were mysteriously deleted. Pls find my feedback after dining at this restaurant below:

First visit. Total disappointment. Prawn Noodles Soup was very diluted and prawns unpeeled. Lor Mee has enough bee hoon but little pork meat and no taste. Fuchow Fishball Tung Hoon was also disappointting - Soup no taste, very little tung hoon. Whole place was smokey with smell of frying - place felt like hawker centre atmosphere, and felt like no aircon. Overhyped place. Understaffed for service and one or two waiters just ignored calls for attention.

One can get better chendol at Balestier market.

Have dined in Penang state many times. Very poor food to represent Penang.

Not bad for the price

I had dinner two nights ago with a friend and ordered a belachan fried rice and nasi lemak and several side dishes. The fried rice was great and flavorful without being overwhelming. The nasi lemak was so-so but enough for the price i paid. The chendol was above average though you should not expect the likes of those in malaysia. The side dish of stuffed dou fu with peanut gravy was recommendable and great for an appetite filler. The fried chicken was fair but a tad over-fried. I had a homemade water chestnut drink that was pretty authentic in taste. Perhaps i had low expectations for the dishes but they turned out pretty okay and i would definitely go back - if they don't increase prices! Service was average, but they had an almost full house. Good value for money.

food was so so horrible

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.
