Restaurant: Max Gourmet - Gurney Plaza, Penang

I have eaten here a couple of times now prior to going to the cinema at Gurney as the restaurant is conveniently located opposite the cinema on the 6th floor. It is a cafe style place serving a spread of Chinese and Indian food with the emphasis on Hong Kong cuisine.

Most of the main course dishes are priced around the RM 10-12 mark and they also serve a variety of quick snacks at about half that price. There is also quite a good variety of soft-drinks on offer at around RM 5.

I ate there again yesterday and had a very tasty Indian style fish-fillet and vegetable curry with steamed rice. For RM 11 this was really very tasty indeed and very filling. Vegetables in the curry included okra, aubergine, green beans, onion and green peppers. The sauce was of the thinner Northern style but was rich and not too oily as some places can be.

The fish and vegetable curry.

... and a very nice chicken and vegetable noodle dish.

Max Gourmet is, as I have said, more of a cafe for a quick meal than a restaurant for romantic dinner for two or venue for a special celebration. If however you are catching a movie at Gurney or even out for a spree of shopping and fancy a pleasant enough quick meal it's well worth a visit and at RM 15 for a meal with a drink is about the same price as a large Starbucks Frapp!!
