First Review by Soo Liang

A great choice in Penang - Edit

A quaint restaurant in a quiet street just near the heritage area of Penang, Coya provides a very decent eat in a clean and comfortably air conditioned environment. The menu covers lots of Nyonya classics so is a good way to get familiar with the local cuisine. They also do fruit and vege juices which can be customized if you wish. Prices are comparatively high for Penang but the ambience is above average also (the lighting lets it down though, it's too brightly lit). They claim not to use weird ingredients - we're not totally convinced about that but if it's true that they use no GMO soy meat, MSG or commercial sauces then that is certainly a good thing. At any rate it's still one of the better options in Penang and is certainly worth a visit.

Pros: Real food (wish it was organic though!), Local cuisine, Cool and clean

Cons: Lighting too bright, Bit too much fake meat, Pricey for Penang?

A Decent Vegetarian Restaurant - Edit

Nice and cozy environment. Healthy cooking style but still very tasty. They serve rice/noodles dishes and also other ala carte dishes to go with rice.
Price is moderate. However, food serving can be a little slow at times.

Pros: Cozy Environment , Tasty

Cons: Slow

New Place, New Environment, New Menu, New Dish - Edit

many new dishes with their home made curry and sauce, very tasty and delicious, wont feel salty and thirsty as assume they did not put any additional MSG.

i will definitely come again to taste their other dishes.

yum yum

Pleasant - Edit

They offer a great selection of meals we hadn't seen at other places, the curries we ordered were quite tasty, but not the tastiest we've had in penang. It's moderately inexpensive, the meals seem quite cheap, but smaller portions than we have had elsewhere. It's very clean and looks newly renovated. To me it seemed to lack character. Overall I wasn't disappointed with the experience, but have experienced better.

Pros: good healthy variety, tasty, helpful staff

Cons: smallish portions

YUM!! - Edit

Great little place with delicious food. Menu is diverse and prices are very good. We very much appreciated that the food was not greasy and offered brown rice instead of white. The staff spoke wonderful English and was easy to understand!

Pros: clean , has AC, friendly staff

Cons: not facing the main road , small sign in front (might be easy to miss)
