Loke Thye Kee Restaurant

The new and  refreshed Loke Thye Kee houses a number of pork-free and Halal outlets: Kopitiam, The Bridge Grill and Loke Thye Kee Restaurant. Guests can enjoy Hainanese, Malaysian and Western delights at these outlets.

 Loke Thye Kee Restaurant

Loke Thye Kee Restaurant (a Halal outlet) on the first floor of the building opens for the early lunch crowd. Diners can choose to dine in its air-conditioned dining area or at the al-fresco area on the balcony.

The menu is divided into several sections with bountiful line-up of Malaysian dishes including a selection of Hainanese dishes. Our pick from the menu was Macaroni Pie and Fish Head Curry.

The Hainanese style Macaroni Pie served with a side of crunchy breadsticks and small helping of salad reveals a warm creamy filling of well-cooked macaroni, carrot and chicken. For those who like a pie for a meal, this comfort dish nicely balanced with herbs and richness is well worth a try.

Another recommended dish is the fish head curry with brinjal, ladies fingers, red and green chillies. Prepared with a creamy base, lots of Indian spices and garnished with mint leaves, the dish provides immense flavour and fresh taste. All that is needed to go along with this curry dish is white rice.

2nd Floor – The Bridge Grill

The roof terrace is occupied by The Bridge Grill. The restaurant with a 360-degree view of George Town delights with a specially crafted menu of flame grilled and teppanyaki style Western dishes.

For every order of a main, you will get unlimited starters of salad, cheeses and cold cuts, along with soup and desserts of fresh fruits, cakes and ice cream. Priced from RM45 onwards, the choices of mains include grain-fed beef, poultry, lamb and lighter options of seafood and vegetarian.

Worthy of a mention is the Rack of Lamb with accompaniments of capsicum and potatoes. The flavours are spot on and the meat is tender enough that the knife cuts through it easily.

Ground Floor – Kopitiam

The food and beverages outlets of Loke Thye Kee building doesn’t stop there. On the ground floor of the building is Kopitiam, a Hainanese Chinese word that expresses a casual coffee shop. Expect to find breakfast offerings and local beverages.
