Batu Ferringhi Food Guide: 10 Must-Eat Restaurants & Street Food Stalls in Batu Ferringhi

March 29, 2018 Leonardo Torrence

The beaches are a huge draw, but there’s so much more to do in this Malaysian hotspot. Frolic with the delicate residents of a butterfly farm, then explore the fragrant landscape of tropical spice garden and fruit farms. The massive collection of dolls, games and models at the Toy Museum brings joy to kids and kids at heart. Save some energy for the Night Market, a lively scene of stalls where good-natured bargaining skills come in handy.

Shangri-La Rasa Sayang

Reviewed By Tinawestwood - London, United Kingdom

We had 6 nights here as part of our honeymoon, beautiful hotel with lovely staff. Location is excellent with private beach access and no more than a 3 minute walk to the night market where there was food of every kind. We only did bed and breakfast and I am glad as the restaurant whilst perfect was not as relaxed as the pool/beach café where the food was excellent, especially the BBQ night, too much food! Highly recommend this hotel.

We have been visiting this restaurant for many years as it is in our must do list when in Batu Ferringhi. Our latest visit did not disappoint. Very good Satay to start with a really tasty peanut sauce. Main courses of beef with pepper, kapitan chicken and fried rice were equally good described my my wife as best local cuisine we have had on this visit. Thoroughly recommended.

Magic 1

Reviewed By James G - Maybole, United Kingdom

Directly opposite the Golden Sands Resort is the restaurant called Magic 1 there is a cosy bar next door which is part of the restaurant varied menu with the best sharks fin soup that I have ever tasted I had the curry afterwards and it too was very good, never seen the restaurant full but well worth a visit.

Long Beach

Long Beach is a collection of street stalls surrounding the sitting area. It is located outside and offers many cuisines including Malaysian. In the area there are not so many restaurants offering Malay food so I thought it appropiate to add this 'restaurant' to the listings, although most would probably not class it as a conventional one!

Reviewed By RnA31 - Beverley, United Kingdom

We spent 4 nights in Penang and ate out at these fantastic outdoor 'food courts' that sell street food or 'hawker food', without the hastle of traffic as they are pedestrian only. Amazing range of freshly cooked food of every variety, just walk around find what you fancy and they cook it and bring it to your table. Superb.

Sigi's Bar and Grill

Reviewed By VTCL1982 - Singapore, Singapore

The seafood combo is extremely disappointing . For the price of rm84, there is only two small prawns, two oysters, one scallop, a few squids and a piece of fish. Expected a real combo not this type of portion and quality.
Service staff was not attentive.
Pizza is ok.

Reviewed By Joy-holiday

We had Penang laksa, fried Kwetiau and curry fish. Curry fish is rich and tasty but too much flower coated the fish. Kwetiau is very oily and way too soft. Portion is small. However, it was only RM7.5. Laksa was not bad but overprice at RM20.

Reviewed By Roger A

Best local food we've had in 7 days we've been here. Curry was excellent, very saucy, nice bit of heat. Chinese meal also very good. Beers could do with being a bit colder, but that's a minor point when the food is so good.

Golden River

Reviewed By CaptainsWife1 - Edinburgh

A very large restaurant which is ideal for large parties. We had local fish and prawns which were cooked wonderfully but were quite expensive because you pick them by weight. The waitress we had was very helpful and making sure we didn't pick too much and the right variety.

The pizzeria restaurant offers exceptionally good pizza. The bad is crisp, the toppings plentiful and the portion size huge!!
The service is relaxed and friendly, and the setting, right there on the beach is perfect.
The kitchen is open plan so that you can see the food being created.
It is a good fun evening out, we recommend you should try it!
