Chili Head Bar & Eatery is a stylish Thai restaurant and bar at Straits Quay (Address: 3A-G-11, Straits Quay, Jalan Seri Tanjung Pinang, Seri Tanjung Pinang, 10470 Tanjung Tokong, Penang. Tel: 04-8903009). It is located right next to Healy Mac’s Irish Bar & Restaurant. Facing the marina, the restaurant/bar is a nice place to enjoy Thai food and chill out with friends over drinks.
There is a good variety of Thai food served at Chili Head Bar & Eatery. Most of the popular Thai dishes can be found here. The price is slightly on the high side, but the environment more than made up for it. I had dinner here recently, ordered the steamed sea bass, cashew nut chicken and vegetables. The food were nice, and we get to enjoy live performance by singers and musicians.
At Chili Head Bar & Eatery, diners have the option to dine in the air-conditioned indoor area or the al-fresco style setting outside (right beside the marina). The dining areas are comfortable, but it can get quite busy and loud as the place is popular, especially at night. There is normally live performance by singers and musicians, and patrons get to dance to the music. The place definitely has a lively atmosphere.
Overall, Chili Head Bar & Eatery is an excellent place to gather with friends, enjoy Thai food and chill out over drinks. It is one of the busier places in Straits Quay, especially in the evening.
