Best Fine Dining Restaurants in Penang

Written by Updated ago

The perception of food and the culture of taste today is no longer limited to the plate alone. While the usual norm is simply eating to satisfy your appetite, fine dining goes beyond that as it is associated with the appreciation of taste and aesthetics. The big element that differentiates fine dining from an ordinary meal is the small portion and size of the dishes, which is aimed for taste sampling as opposed to alleviating one's hunger.

Rankings of all participants as visible on our listings are solely voted by you, our beloved readers. With that said, we would encourage you to please vote for your preferred participants in order to ensure their rightful positions ranking-wise on our portal. Thank you!
