Tips for you
One of Penang's most important colonial heritage landmarks, Suffolk House stands in Jalan Air Itam. Built on an estate of Captain Francis Light over 200 years ago, restoration works were completed a few years ago to restore the house to its former glory. It now houses a museum with guided tours. There is an in-house restaurant which serves hi-tea and ala-carte meals but prices are on the high side. Worth a visit.
This place has a very special place in my heart as my wedding reception was held here.
Very classy and relaxing. Great place to go if you are looking for a quiet tea or meal with friends. The atmosphere is perfect for holding great conversations because the staff is attentive but are quiet and do not interrupt. There are only a handful of tables and each table is given a good amount of room so you will not be bothered by other guests and their conversations. It's easy to feel like you are the only people there.
