Just one slurp and my wife and I were hooked. I think the main attraction is the texture of their noodles. It is non-greasy and has just the right amount of firmness that made me consider a second helping. Not that the helping is small but it's just that it is truly that delicious.The anchovies are another great choice to add-on. It is super crunchy and pairs very well with the dish. It would be really nice though, if Chilli Pan Mee provides online delivery service. I am sure many people would greatly appreciate the convenience of their tasty pan mee delivered right to their doorstep.This place gets our vote if ever there's an award for the best chilli pan mee in Butterworth.

My friend highly recommended this place for their meals recently. And knowing i am always on the look out for a nice spaghetti meal, I visited this restaurant. It was situated in the vicinity of multiple restaurants and cafes and such, hence making it quite a happening place to be. When I reach, this place was packed on the inside (I guess you need to make a booking earlier to get a nice table). If you prefer sitting outside (smoking area) then it shouldn't be an issue. I only managed to get a high sitting table with high stool which is a little bit uncomfortable for having a proper meal (to my liking). I ordered my aglio olio (tried to get them to prepare the seafood style = add some prawns) but unfortunately they said the kitchen did not prepared enough for this special request. I had the usual one and to my surprise, the spaghetti turned out to be quite nice and tasty. It's not too spicy (some aglio olio is really spicy) and the texture is just nice in the mouth. I was expecting less because of the 'rejected request' thinking the kitchen is very rigid to prepare for me. I had the day and night coffee special and it was also quite nice and the aroma is good. The cashier staff is really polite and bowing a few times to me when I paid my bill. Maybe they are thinking I am reviewing their restaurant which is yea. haha...overall, I could have given them top marks if the reception is better (there is no one greeting you or care for you when you enter, maybe because u just have to get your own seat and press the call button located on each table = ok fine, no issue then), and the kitchen not being rigid and catered to my sudden demand to get seafood aglio olio. Still quite a good place considering I have also managed to get some readings on my book during my visit (though the seating is too high for comfort). I will visit again if I come by this area ~

When here for lunch in a large group, was very eager to try their fish head curry. I was not disappointed, the curry was superb & the fish head was fresh! 2 thumb up!However, other dishes was average and overpriced, mango salad, fried chicken, stir fry vege was overpriced and did not meet the standards. Don't waste your money on other dishes, but Fish head curry is a must try and the price for this one dish is reasonable.

Spice Brasserie is the all-day dining restaurant at The Light Hotel in Seberang Jaya and I would say they serve some wonderful food there. I love their breakfast which has a wide varieties of items and their food is fresh and delicious.I have also had some buffet dinner at their restaurant ~ usually under RM100 per pax and again they do have ample choices of fresh and great tasting food. Their food usually covers dishes from Indian, Chinese, Malay and Western. They also have hot cooking station depending on their theme night, fresh pastries and great teh tarik.Parking is usually ample unless there is a big function happening in the hotel

Clean and comfy environment with amazing kakigori that is very reasonably priced. Tried the Mont Mauve kakigori and was surprised by how it tasted. The portion for the supposingly ‘mini‘ one that I tried was actually quite well sized. Definitely coming back again.

The South Indian breakfast of Idli, uzhuthu vadai, appam and fried noodles was very tasty and reasonable. The staff was friendly and courteous. Service was par excellence.Being new they were open to constructive criticism but only time will determine the maintenance of this quality food and service.Best wishes to staff and management.

The restaurant is located inside the residence housing estate and will be a challenge for outsider to search for. I belief that the owner could have been running business for the past 10-15 years based on the environment. For locals, the restaurant also serves buffet for places which hold events and could be a challenge to reserve them specially during heavy season.Specialize in Chinese canto or localize cooking, this place could be found full during lunch or dinner hours. Price for places like this could be categorize as reasonable as a meal for 6 could only cost you less than MYR80.On overall, reasonable place to dine with satisfactory food great and fast service.

Nasi Kandar Pelita

Reviewed By Zubair S

The restaurant was close to our hotel and was recommended by a few people. However passing by it we weren't sure as it was hot and humid and the restaurant was open seating with fans on top. Any case decided to give it a try. Found a table and got seated but was hard to get anyone to attend to us as it was packed and all the servers were quite busy. Finally got some service and order a few items off the menu recommended by the server according to our taste. tried the biryani rice, nasi goreng, migoreng noodles, paratha. Everything can quickly and was piping hot and tasted excellent. Prices were very affordable and we all enjoyed our dinner. Definitely a recommendation while in the area and looking for a quick hot bite.
