A truly iconic building built circa 1929 and located right in the heart of George Town,

it used to house the oldest restaurant in Penang serving Hainanese cuisine. Some know

it as the ‘Love Boat’ (the architecture resembles a Chinese pleasure boat) it used to be

the venue to celebrate happy occasions like matchmaking, weddings and birthdays.

Loke Thye Kee has proven to be a very unique destination for many people, both locals

and tourists alike. For the locals, it is a chance to re-live the memories of old Loke Thye

Kee Restaurant, when they used to dine as children. As for the tourists, it is a chance

to experience the heritage of Penang and enjoy traditional Malaysian cuisine at the

same time. The architecture itself has made it a landmark of George Town and its rich history has made it popular with tourists.
