Island Plaza is a small mall for Malaysian standards. The mall is located in the small village of Tanjung Tokong, nearby another popular mall in Penang; Plaza Gurney. Metrojaya, a big department store, is the anchor tenant in Island Plaza mall. At the entrance you can choose between the Coffee Bean & Tea Leaf and the Starbucks, they both serve a pretty good cup of coffee. Beneath Island Plaza you'll find a large Cold Storage supermarket and at the 4th floor W Cinemax; the first 3D Cineplex in Malaysia. Though Island Plaza is one of the first malls in Penang, it remained a popular and classy place to shop among tourists and locals.
