Ng Kim Kheng's Bungalow (GPS: 5.41369, 100.32656) is a double-storey detached house off Dato Kramat Road in George Town, Penang. Ng Kim Kheng 黃金慶 was a supporter of Dr Sun Yat Sen. His Indo-Malay style bungalow was built in the 19th century. Its address is 94 Dato Kramat Road.

It was here, at this bungalow, that the Penang Philomatic Union Reading Club (nowadays known as the Sun Yat Sen Memorial Hall) had its inaugural meeting at the end of January, 1909. This was also one of the places that Dr Sun Yat Sen lodged when he was in Penang in July 1910.
