This is definitely one of Penang’s little secrets, particularly if you’re looking for a friendly and unpretentious seafood restaurant in Tanjung Bungah.

The family-run Hai Wei is tucked away on the ground floor of the Leisure Cove Serviced Apartment block opposite the market. There’s no air conditioning, because it is right next to the beach, but a gentle breeze blows in from the sea to aid the fans which whir quietly overhead.

Alternatively, stop by for a sundowner and watch the evening sun set, then, if you are so inclined, tuck into some appetising Fried Chicken followed by a plate of their delicious Hor Fun or Fried Rice.

It’s currently run by Sally and her team of helpers, including husband Ah Kun who will knock up a great Fish Assam Curry with pomfret or whatever the catch of the day is. There’s not an overly large menu, but what’s available is good, and very reasonably priced.

Their newly-introduced Coconut Prawns didn’t sound particularly appealing to me, but Sally prevailed upon me to try it and believe me, it is delicious, mild but surprisingly flavoursome, rather like an unspicy curry – even better than when they are cooked with chincalok, which is one of my favourites. However, if there’s anything you fancy which isn’t on the menu, they will try to oblige, including, if you opt for a full course dinner there, some rather excellent Four Season platters.

It’s really a wonderful place to enjoy good food together with the sea view, but can get busy at weekends so booking is advisable. It is well worth the phone call.
