Five Stars Restaurant, Batu Lanchang, Penang

After so many years, finally I made my way to this restaurant. I got to know about this restaurant because my college mate’s then boyfriend, now husband, operates this place with his father, a family business.

I remember that there was one time Siew Ai (my college mate/friend) brought 2 small containers of mango chicken, and another one dish I could not really remember, something like salad “you tiao” or something… And she passed it over to me quietly after driving me home from college.. so sweet of her :) Gosh.. time flies.. that was like 8 years ago!!

Anyways, this round I actually only tried 2 dishes cos there were only 2 of us and we could not order too many dishes, fear that we could not manage to finish them…  but I’ll certainly go back again to try more of the dishes offered… the menu is pretty extensive…  from seafood (fish, prawns, squids, sea cucumber, and even shark’s fin), various types of meat (deer, beef, pork, chicken), a variety of vegetables, bean curds, soups, curries, to individual dishes like fried rice, noodles, hor fun and many more.


Drinks… Orange juice at MYR 2.00, soya bean at MYR 1.50, I think… can’t remember…


Business is good, even during lunch hours… the place is not big, limited seats with air condition.

P1410498-1 Chinese kinda brussel sprouts… “chai thna” they call it, stir fried with oyster sauce… I think it’s MYR 6.00 for a small portion. You get to order in, small, medium and large portion. Small portions ranging from MYR 6.00 to 9.00 depending on the vegetable of choice.

P1410501-1Rice portion pretty generous… many places now provide smaller portions of rice, taking advantage of big eaters, cos they will order additional rice at a charge.

P1410508-1Stir fried chicken with ginger and spring onion, MYR 8.00 for a small portion. Small portion chicken dish price ranging from MYR 8.oo (majority chicken dish) to MYr 10.00 (only for the cashew nut with chicken) Nicely done, chicken pieces was succulent, gravy was nice, but it could be better with stronger ginger taste.. guess that is our personal taste… Overall, food was okay, portion was also generous and price is reasonable.


It’s not hard to find. It’s actually same row with the Batu Lanchang’s KFC and next to Ong Too Pain Clinic (what a name for a clinic, huh…)
