Boatman Restaurant



Nothing flashy about the setting, but good wholesome and authentic Penang cuisine. The meal is simply beautiful and you will leave with your plates empty. The service is excellent, the prices are extremely economical and the beer is cold. The ambience is very laid back and it's certainly not fancy, but the food is superb - especially the curry capitan - and extremely cheap. Definitely one of the best value eateries you've ever been to.

It is in a good location, has seating both inside and out and serves a wide variety oriental and western food for lunch and dinner and also serves a good selection of breakfast treats, including a full English with real bacon for those that crave it.
