Fish Fillet cooked with lemon sauce and served with rice. For health conscious people, this dish will be the best option. It has a balanced-diet with a tangy lemon touch.

Other than the set lunches, the wedding packages are also one of the best in Penang. Below is the list of Sea Queen Wedding Packages:

WEDDINGPACKAGE

One of the Wedding Packages that is value for money is Wedding Package Emerald – RM668 ++

  1. Five Happiness Hot & Cold Combination – This is the usual five types of combination starter for most of the wedding events. My favourites from dish are the smoked duck and the scallop rolls. The smoked duck was so juicy and flavourful while the scallop rolsl which were wrapped with ham and topped with sago balls were full of seafood flavour.

  2. Braised Shark’s Fin Soup with Crab Meat – I believe most of the shark’s fin soup now are being replaced with substitutes to avoid the killing of sharks. The addition of crab meat enhanced the soup’s texture and taste.

  3. Stewed Chicken with Chinese Herbs – The chicken was stewed with Chinese herbs for long hours. The taste of the soup was slightly on the salty side. Other than that the taste of the chicken was quite delightful.

  4. Steamed Red Snapper with Siamese Style – The red snapper was steamed with Sea Queen’s homemade Siamese sauce, and topped with slices of onion, lady fingers, tomatoes and sprinkled with a touch of coriander. For my personal preference, I still like the fresh fish to be served in Cantonese steam style or Teow Chew steam style. This way the freshness and original taste of the fish will be preserved.

  5. Braised Mushroom with Bean Curd Roots & Puff – Few types of mushrooms were braised with broccoli’s, bean curd roots and some puffs. This dish is perfect for vegetarians and those observing healthy diet.

  6. Pan Fried Sea Prawns – The sea prawns were pan fried with peppery and spicy sauce, and served together with some onions and Thai basil leaves. The prawns were fresh and juicy. This is one of my favourites.

  7. Steamed Rice Wrapped with Lotus Leaf, the rice was first fried with mushrooms and Chinese sausages before being wrapped up with Lotus leaf and brought to steam. The aroma of the was magnificent and it blended very well with all the ingredients within.

  8. Chilled Longan with Syrup – The syrup and longan were added with ice cubes and lemon slices to make it more appetizing and cooling.

  9. Sweet Fancy Double Delights – The egg yolk custard buns and matchi buns are one of the best desserts to end the meal with. The egg yolk custard buns will burst out its golden goodness consisted of egg yolk and custard once bitten. On the other hand, the matchi bun had a slightly softer outer layer and less juicy inner part thus complementing its juicier counterpart.

Chilled Lemon Grass Jelly with Lime – RM5.00++ per serving is one of the specialities here. The ice cream sorbet is the key to the this drink appetizing. I would strongly recommend this drink to those who love a refreshing drink after a heavy meal.

  1. Saw the good reviews in website so decided to bring my in-laws for dinner. Knowing that suckling piglets have to be ordered in advance so order and booked table afew days ahead. Nice ambiance when we walk in, we were ushered to our table, were given 2 menus despite there is 4 of us. My wife and my father in law made ordering and confirm of our pre ordered piglet and ordered a few more dishes including shark’s fin soup. Then comes the crap service, Imagine in fine dinning the shark’s fin soup came as the third dish. Usually it will be served after the appetizers but we didn’t ordered any. And then all the other dishes came out except the piglet, which usually the dish to come out after the soup. when inquired, the guy in the suit said that they are very busy, we were at the ground floor and they were less then half of the tables had diners. Then sarcastically he said they have 3 floors of dining area. Finally we got tired of waiting I ask a lady also in suit to cancel the piglet and ask for the bill as all the other dishes including rice had finished. She went into the back which is out of our sights, then 5 mins later our piglet came out. So for Chinese fine dinning restaurant this place really crap out in service. No apologies were given as seems like its our fault to have chosen to eat there.
