In year 2012, I first tried 7 Village Noodle House when I was on a trip to Nibong Tebal, Seberang Perai. We were having lunch there before continue to our destination. 7 Village is famous for their Kuey Teow soup. It is really tastes good but not the best. I personally still prefer the Ah Kok Kuey Teow Soup.
Recently, I found out that 7 Village Noodle House is expanding their network in Penang and I am pretty excited about this new branch in Penang. You can found 7 Village in Abut Siti Lane. Here is how it is look like.

It was located at Sim Clan Ancestral Hall, which is 3 block from the left of Restaurant Jade Palace. Here is the front view of 7 Village Noodle House. If you missed out the blue sign board, then you will need to look for word seven which I believe you will not miss it when you stand on Abu Site Lane.
7 Village Noodle House dining environment
Since 7 Village Noodle House is a well established restaurant with 3 branches, you will not expect to found hawker style dining area. Upon you walk into the restaurant, you will observe that the restaurant is well decorated with big picture showing their main dishes hanging on the wall. The dinning setting is kind of simple, clean metal table and chair. There are no ordering/ping button on the table, to get hold of the waitress, you will have to wave your hand to get the waitress attention.
There are 2 sections within the restaurant, the first section on the front is NON air conditioned whereas the inner section is air conditioned.
Their menu is kind of simple. It comes with some picture of the recommended dishes and all the items are well categorized. The price of each item is clearly stated in the menu; you should not have any problem to make the ordering.
Beside the blue paper menu, you will found that they have an alternative sign board style menu hanging on the wall that spell out all the dishes in the menu and it price. You will definitely found this sign board in each branches upon you enter from the main entrance. This has become one the “MUST” have decoration sign board in 7 Village noodle house.
How does the food taste?
Me and my wife have ordered the Kuey Teow soup and the rice noodle dry. Beside the main dishes, we have ordered 2 side dishes, that is the lo bak (marinated pork in sausage form) and dragon ball (minced fish ball). Here is how the actual dishes look like.
The dry fat rice noodle (老鼠粉) is topped with 2 fish ball, 2 slide of chicken and a big chunk of minced meat.
Above picture shown the 7 Village famous Kuey Teow Soup; it has the same topping as the rice noodle but it seem like it has lot of minced meat. Sound good is it? Actually, 50% of the minced meat is pass over from my wife’s rice noodle to my Kuey Teow soup, that why there are lot of minced meat in my bowl.
Overall, the dishes is tasty and above average. The price of the food is kind of reasonable and suite most of the customer need. Dishes are well presented upon arrived and the setting is nice. You will enjoy the food there !!

Yes, definitely. 7 village noodle house do provide a great place for gathering and great food as well.
