Penang--need 2 restaurants for 5-10 people

My wife grew up in Penang and we are returning for a visit (with her father). Many old friends want to visit them, and instead of hosting them at our hotel (E&O), we are looking to find a couple of places for dinners that could accommodate a medium to large group and qualify as good places for locals--since our "guests" will be locals.

Any thoughts greatly appreciated. The trip is a few weeks away. Thanks.

  1. The top 3 Chinese restaurants for Penang people like me to entertain our guests for a special occasion would be:-
    A) Maple Gold, Jln Sultan Ahmad Shah
    B) Evergarden Restaurant, Evergreen Laurel Hotel, Gurney Drive
    C) CRC Chinese Restaurant, Victoria Green.

    1. +1 on restaurants mentioned by Penang_rojak - to which I'd add Sesame + Soy restaurant at the G Hotel near Gurney Plaza.

      If you're looking for a "non-Asian" dining option, try Via.Pre at Weld Quay - best Italian I'd tried in Penang.
