River Penang food style is one of my all time favourite cuisines - Malyasian & Chinese. Southern Chinese style cuisine blended with Malay spices, chillis, coconut milk and cream is what Malaysian Chinese style cuisine is all about. Add a few well cooked Nyonya* dishes makes this restaurant the nearest thing to my favourite food country in the world, Malaysia - a foodie's heavan.
A very brief note on Nyonya food. Hundreds of years ago, early Chinese settlers arrived in Melacca during the Ming dynasty and married local Malay. This blending of two cultures produced a amazing blend of wonderful food called nyonya using local ingredients that are tangy, aromatic, spicy and herbal. Nyonya food is also known as Peranakan cuisine.

All the chefs are Malaysian born Chinese - a must for this style of food.
