Tan Jetty Thai Food Restaurant @ Weld Quay, Georgetown, Penang.

Thai food lovers would not be new to this place- Tan Jetty Thai Food Restaurant, which has been around for years. Over the years, the place has expanded and it has better dining space now with bigger menu. It is usually very busy on weekends and the place is especially popular amongst regulars and tourists, looking to enjoy authentic Thai food with a nice Penang sea view. The menu is fairly big with most classic Thai delights... depends on the catch of the day, they may offer specialties like Baked Crabs or various seafood. This is definitely a solid Thai restaurant in the heart of Georgetown. 

Tom Yam Seafood (Rm 25/ small)

Papaya Salad Som Tam (Rm 18)

Stir Fried Egg Plant with Basil Leaves (Rm 10/ small)

Pad Thai (Rm 24/ serves 2 pax)

Chestnut (Rm 15/ jug)

We just could not leave a Thai restaurant without having Tom Yam and Tan Jetty Thai Food Restaurant's was spot on... with the right flavors and packed a strong spicy punch. It was very addictive and they were quite generous with the Seafood. We also enjoyed their Stir Fried Egg Plant with Basil Leaves which we thought the flavors were done right. The distinctive Basil aroma fits into this dish perfectly, there were some minced meat for the texture but the real draw was the juicy Egg Plant packed with Basil aroma. We also had their Pad Thai which we thought the seafood sweetness was missing. We would be happier if they could include more Dried Shrimps for the texture and the unique crustacean flavor. Peanut Powder is also preferred over whole Peanuts. There was nothing wrong with their Papaya Salad Som Tam in terms of flavors but for Rm 18, we thought it was a rip off. We can easily get this dish at Rm 10-12 in most Thai restaurants for that serving portion.
