Retro is back!

17 Kelawai is a Charlie Chaplin retro inspired restaurant that focuses on serving fusion cuisine in George Town, Penang. With dishes specially designed by Chef Ong, a professional chef with over 30-year experience in the kitchen, 17 Kelawai is the culmination of a casual atmosphere and yet that provides an all-inspiring fine dining experience right in the heart of the city.

The wide array of dishes in its menu proofs its high culinary skill in making local and international delicacies specialising in Nyonya, Chinese and Western dishes. For those visiting the city, savour one of Penang's most famous char koay teow, which is flat rice noodle fried with fresh local prawns and scallops. For an all time favourite, check out its Signature Egg Benedict if you are looking to cure that late night out or for that weekend brunch session you've been planning with your friends. While there is a full list of dishes ranging from appetisers to a full meal, the restaurant also offers a non-commital Charlie's Afternoon Tea that provides delectable apple crumble, macaroons, and of course, tea.  

Opened for breakfast, lunch and dinner, 17 Kelawai is open all week except Tuesdays. For reservations, please email For more information about the restaurant, please visit their website at
