Khee Hiang Chinese Restaurant 奇香海鲜餐厅 is probably one of the most hidden Chinese restaurants in Penang, one would need some navigation skills in order to reach the restaurant. The fully air-conditioned Chinese restaurant is not visible from the main streets of Nibong Tebal town but slightly off the town, near to a residential area. The place is more like the communal dining place for those living in the neighborhood... serving some familiar, classic Chinese stir fry dishes. Big menu with food items affordably priced... comfortable dining atmosphere and hearty serving portion, definitely a worth-visiting Chinese restaurant.

We found that dishes are rather unique here. We started with Fish Maw and Glass Noodle Soup, a savory, starchy soup with Glass Noodles and plenty of Fish Maw... lightly seasoned and best served with Black Vinegar. The consistency was perfect and they were very generous with the ingredients. Equally worth-mentioning would be the Broccoli served with bouncy home-made Fish Balls... We also enjoyed the Bangkok-styled Steamed Grouper... fresh piece of Grouper served over creamy, fragrant Curry sauce; good on its own or even better to spoon over rice. Every dish we had was satisfactory and nothing disappoints... given the budget-friendly price tags, we thought the meal was worth it.
