The Maple Gold Recretion Club at Jalan Sultan Ahmad Shah has a facelift after having gone through quite extensive renovation recently. The club used to house the Maple Gold Restaurant which has since ceased operation and replaced by another Chinese restaurant, Maple Palace.

I was told that the owner of Maple Palace used to own the Jade Blossom Restaurant at Kristal Point but has since relinquished his share at the restaurant. It explains why the decor of Maple Palace has some resemblance to Jade Blossom.
The decor is tasteful and quite grand, which is a welcomed addition to the Chinese cuisine dining scene in Penang.
Maple Palace tagline is "Serving the Finest Chinese Cuisine in Town". They specialize in Chinese and Cantonese dishes blended with local flavours.

|Stir Fried String Beans|
|Steamed Fish with Hot Bean Sauce and Lotus Leaf|
|Deep Fried Spring Rolls|
The total bill came to around RM260 for 9 pax. We liked the ambiance of the restaurant and service was quite prompt perhaps also because we were early. It was the Saturday before Mother's Day and the restaurant was enjoying brisk business during lunch hours. I feel the restaurant is ideal for throwing private birthday or company functions if you want a Chinese restaurant setting. Overall, food was good except the deep fried spring roll skin which was a tad too dry.
Happy Mothers Day, mom. We love you heaps! xoxo
