The Shed Restaurant

3C-G-1 Straits Quay Jalan Seri Tanjung Pinang 10470 Tanjung Tokong Penang Malaysia

On an Australian property, the shed is the center of life. It’s where you work hard and play even harder. The Shed is here to bring that laid back Australian atmosphere to Penang. Our excellent tucker, grog and music set the scene for a great night.

Australian Cuisine hasn't had much exposure in Penang but we hope that will change with the opening of The Shed in Straits Quay. The Australian-influenced Pub & Restaurant offers a vast selection of grill meats as well as some Burgers and Pasta. The setup is more of a bistro with a stage behind (live music performances are available on certain days); those who prefer a more outdoorsy ambiance with cold sea breeze could opt to dine-in at the sea-front while those who prefer to sit nearer to the stage could opt for inside. The atmosphere is relaxed and casual, most suitable to chill out with friends/ family over a few helpings of beers and wines (or even better, pair with their meat-focused dishes). Not a bad place for drinks and casual Australian barbecue meat but we thought the food lacked the "x" factor (not that we weren't pleased with the quality, just that the probability of returning is not high). The Shed Aussie Pub & Restaurant can be found right next to Spasso Milano, previous tenant was Weissbrau German Bistro.

We got a little overly excited with the opening of Nomiya- American Izakaya at Straits Quay; the name Izakaya gives an impression that the gastropub serves light Japanese Tapas and alcohol but this particular place got it all wrong. Nomiya serves limited Izakaya-related menu (no Yakitori, no Ikayaki, no Karaage, no Japanese-styled Grilled Fish nor American Tapas) but a series of mains with above-average (rather hefty) price tags (yet the quality/ serving portion failed to commemorate with price). Not only the menu and quality were disappointing, the service was equally lackluster as well. Orders were wrongly taken and the service lead time was long either (took them more than 45 minutes to serve all orders). Probably they were still new, our dining experience was rather bad and we reckon they have plenty of rooms for improvements still.
