Restaurants & Dining

The sun, sand and sea have a way of working up the appetite. The Parkroyal Penang is guilty of this too! But there's scarcely a reason to worry. For what the hotel creates, it appetizingly solves as well!

The food and beverage outlets in the PARKROYAL Penang bring out the connoisseur in you with some of the most exciting dining and entertainment options to be found in Penang. Our ever popular Tiffins Restaurant serves an intriguing blend of contemporary cuisine in a grand, colonial, 5-star setting. The 24-hour Tamarind Brasserie, on the other hand, is a veritable melting pot of mouth-watering Asian, continental and traditional favourites that will leave you licking your fingers for more.

To make the most of the idyllic location and magnificent sea views, make your way to the whimsical Cool Bananas poolside café where you can tuck into an eclectic menu to complement the scenery. For drinks, there's nothing like the relaxing atmosphere of the stylish indoor Javana Lounge or the outdoor Sunset Bar amidst lush gardens.

Whatever the taste you relish, when you are at the Parkroyal Penang, you will never run out of scenery, settings or fabulous cuisine to go with it.
