Gurney Drive serves penang hawker food.
After several of attempts, Old friend and I finally met up for dinner on last friday night. We decided to met up for dinner at Woodlands Causeway Point shopping mall. Since it is long queue everywhere, we decided to have Penang local foods for dinner. No queue and we went straight in to Gurney Drive restaurant.
There is an order form on the table for us to tick our orders. We placed our order and it was served less than 20 minutes. I ordered Fried Koay Teow @S$7.50 per serving. The price is double price of Penang, Malaysia. I personally feel that it is expensive. However, the taste does reminds me the Penang taste though.
Old friend ordered Assam Laksa @S$5.90 per serving. He is satisfied with his choice and enjoyed with the laksa.
We also had Rojak @S$4.50 per seving as ala-carte too. We can taste the crunchiness of the ingredients and the rojak sauce taste delicious.
Mango pudding @S$3.50 is my choice of dessert to end the dinner.
Total bill was S$25.20 inclusive of 10% service charge and 7% GST. I personally find that they shouldn’t charge the 10% service charge as we do not have much attention from the staff. We need to put our hands up to request to refill our drink even though the restaurant is not full house. The attentiveness and promptness wasn’t there. We need to bring the receipts to the counter to make payment instead of calling them to send to our table.
Other than the above drink, i could not find other reason why i would go back to Gurney Drive. If authentic Penang food taste like this at such a price, i would be sorely disappointed!
With myself that is, since almost everyone i know simply loves Penang cuisine!
