Went there for lunch with a business colleague. Yummy Penang food. We shared the otah otah, Kwey Pai Tee, Penang fried keoy teow and curry chicken noodles.

Nice and trendy little cafe on the top floor at Suria, KLCC. You can find authentic Penang cooking in this place. Rojak is one of the best around. Other dishes like Laksa, fried noodles are delicious and reasonable priced. Could imagine the place being packed during lunch hours.

This place serves quite good fried noodles and curry noodles. Prices are also very reasonable. Ambience is lacking more like a local coffee shop.

The food was delicious but the outlet is too small. Especially if you come during lunch time ...weekdays. They will try to squeeze you in the small outlet. Try to visit after or before luch time

If you have been to Penang, you'd really appreciate the flavors here, due to its authenticity. The Assam Laksa was phenomenally good, but some of the ingredients used were not for those with regular Western palate. Still, there are other great choices, such as their Nasi Lemak plates and various mild side dishes. We came here twice and really enjoyed... More

Food is very reasonably priced, and very tasty. Be careful if you're not into spice as a lot of the food is quite hot! The chicken rolls are very good. Service is very efficient but not exactly friendly, which was fine by us!

Lovely local food. Really enjoyed the drinks too. Barley lime and the nutmeg and sour cherry are my favourites. The food is Malay / fusion. The Assam Laksa is an amazing mouthwatering dish with so many flavours going on. The penang jawa mee is good too.

Even after all these years, they’ve managed to maintain the quality of the food. Their pai tee is really, really good. Prices are also very decent and the service is excellent!

Recently celebrated our 34th yrs anniversary in KL. My husband & I decided to go on a adventurer hunt for food so that we can share with friends back home in Singapore. One of our favourite hunt is Penang food specifically the "jiu he char." This is really superbly authentically and "heavenly" best!!! We ordered extra fillings of the vegetables... More

We dined at Little Penang Cafe 4 years ago and we were back earlier this month and it has not changed! Staff service was efficient, our food was served in no time and the flavour was still great (we ordered the same dishes on top of new ones to try). It was great to see that the food and service...
