This was our family first visit to Coconut Palms Delicious Seafood Restaurant located on Jalan Burma, Penang. Though opened recently, this restaurant is quite popular and usually crowded with diners.

Coconut Palms Delicious Seafood Restaurant has a wide spread menu ranging from pork, chicken to seafood. The place has a large dinning area, air-conditioned in the front and  non air-conditioned at the rear of the restaurant.

Steamed fish to get the appetite rumbling!

The favorable dish for the night was the house specialty, Bangkok Chicken RM10. The meat was tender and deliciously coated with a thick marvelous sauce of lemongrass, tumeric and ginger torch flower. Simply scrumptious!

After the delicious spread of chicken, came the vegetable dish. The French beans was stir fired with prawns and sambal RM10 with a crispy bite and a pungent chili flavor.

Spring rolls RM11 with fillings of mangkuang, mushroom and carrot was served to go with the dipping sauce. The rolls have a light taste and is less enjoyable as the skin is not that crispy.

The arrival of the Steamed fish with Chai Por RM46 had everyone asking for additional rice. The delicate flavor of the soy sauce was enhanced with the slightly sweet chai por. The fish itself was very fresh and was steamed just right!


We topped off the meal nicely with the Steamed clams & prawns! Many other restaurants offer this dish but the clams are usually smaller in size, however at Coconut Palms the clams that we had were larger in size and is definitely worth the try. Steamed with lemon juice and lots of chopped garlic and chili, the clams were delicious.

Wanted to try out the food at Coconut Palms the other day. A strong moldy smell rushing into our nose when we opened the restaurant’s door. We couldn’t stand it and left the restaurant right away. Owner of the restaurant should upgrade their ventilation system and make sure all table linens are clean.

I heard some reviews about the food so I decided to try out with my family. The food does not meet up to my expectations as I usually have high standards for food. In fact, I still think one of the best Chinese restaurant in Penang is still Starview.

The food is so-so but worst of all is that we are over-charged on the ‘special dessert’. The waitress told us that only for weekends there is a special dessert ‘siukap’, do we want to try. It is a jelly like substance served boiled in a coconut shell.

Luckily we decided to share – so we ordered 4 for a table of 8 pax. Guess what? The dessert cost RM24 each because they boiled ith with ginseng and stuff. Normally siukap costs about Rm5-7 only in other restaurants.

We feel that the waitress should have at least told us the price before recommending it. Imagine a table of 10 pax with 1 dessert each x RM24 = RM240 just for desserts which could be equivalent if not more than the either meal itself.

If you really want to try good Chinese food – think of Starview, CRC, Red Rock, Ocean Green to name a few.
