The food was just average except the fried oyster.I wished we bought more. the sauce makes it special.we tried another fried oyster in another place, we still prefer gurney drive's fried oyster.

I went with some locals and at the end of the meal, I must say the Rojak, Po Piah & Char Kway Teow were quite delicios. I had the grilled stingray which was not very good. Guessed if you want to have a taste of everything, this is the best spot to experience it.

We went there for dinner at around 8 and there were still plenty of people around. The food stores sell similar items so it is difficult to find the best ones. The are also many other better places to eat at where the tastes are more local and the prices are cheaper. Though Gurney Drive is still a must - visit place in Penang.

I heard about this place from local recommendations… I was looking for somewhere to try all the local essentials in one location… like Asam Laksa, Char Kway Teow (with duck egg), satay etc… And I really wasn’t disappointed. Tons of variety, bristling but efficient service, lively atmosphere, and… above all… absolutely delicious food. We visited at about 10:30pm on Saturday night and the place had the perfect amount of visitors… enough to make it feel truly alive but not so crowded to cause difficulty with seating. And all the stalls were still open. From everything I’ve read, this seems the best time to visit. I was so surprised and saddened to read about the awful experiences described here on Trip Advisor. I’m so thankful I didn’t experience anything like that. Actually, Gurney Hawker was one of the highlights of my visit to Penang. But, after reading about others experiences, I’ll approach it with more caution during my next visit.
