  • I love Gurney Plaza for its high-end style and shopping. However, I've only given it three stars as it doesn't provide paper in its women's bathrooms. This Plaza is on par with any high-end mall worldwide , yet it's too cheap and stingy to provide bathroom paper. Pick your game up Gurney, I'm used to low-end Asian malls and carry my own pack of tissues. International visitors will be very unhappy at the lack of paper in bathrooms and will mark you lower than I did.
  • Common shopping mall with variety of boutiques and restaurants. Nice cozy ambient, though can be quite busy on weekends and festive season. Top and roof mall parking can be considered reasonably cheap. Must visit!
  • The best place to shop in Penang. Many options for fashion, food, etc. Many different brands that you can't find in Penang. What you want, you can find it there. Overall the mall is for middle middle class people to shop. Many parking spots but there will be peak hours where it will be jam for most of the time. Nonetheless, people still love to shop there as it is a mall which has more to see. If you're okay & patience enough, people who live at the other end of the island can drive to Gurney Plaza, but it will be very jam.
  • Lots of food if you like street food this place us great variety of choices. The best is the BBq octopus. Lots of cool drinks
  • Smaller centre but good dining options and plenty of speciality and luxury stores. Basement parking available for a reasonable cost. Easiest way to pay for parking is with touch n go card.
