My wife and I stayed in Singapore for years and we know what real Malay food is. This place is our favorite and we always love it.

A terrific alternative to a traditional Thanksgiving meal. The chicken satay and the roti canai were good, as was the chili crab. I don't have any other Malaysian restaurants to compare it to, so for me, this was a very good dining experience.

I worked for a short time in Singapore and Hong Kong. Became hooked on Rendang. Until now, the only place I had found decent Rending Beef was a place called the Banana Leaf in California. This Rending was amazing! I am smiling just sitting here writing about it. Ten of us tried Penang on one of our Wednesday Night dinner... More

We decided to give this place a try again after it changed management after 15 years. But we weren't too impressed. Yes the service had definitely improved, although the staff didn't speak fluent English. They were friendly. The food was not at all authentic. I grew up in Hong Kong and I have eaten authentic Malaysian/Thai before. Their kwai tew... More

I have eaten at Penang's Maylasian restaurant in other cites, Boston and New York. I am a big fan of Malaysian food as it is close to my heart, very similar to Indonesian cuisine. I so enjoyed the food I ate there 3 days in a row! I ordered the chicken satay with peanut sauce and the roti canai. The... More

Went there for lunch. Food was not bad and may be worth going back, but service should certainly improve. The server who was also the person manning the reception desk/area served our table. She brought in bowls, one of which had something nondescript on it. We were able to get a replacement but seeing from the other reviews there appears... More

We have decided to go to a different ethnic restaurant every week for the rest of well, forever! This was our first stop, Malaysian, Thai, and Chinese food. Cute little restaurant in a strip mall surrounded by many other restaurants. Food was good and large portions. Service was good

Even in Chamblee (Atlanta), Malaysian food is kinda hard to find. This place nails it. Both from an ingredient stand point, quality and uniqueness. The dishes we had caused an explosion of flavors in my mouth. Oh yeah, I'll be back. PS, great value as well. Go, you won't be disappointed.

My favorite is Curry Mee soup. I like the rice too. But I' addicted to that soup and when I go there I always get the same. I should try other options.

My first visit to Penang was not one to recommend. My husband and I ordered a fish dish for my son's lunch and it was outrageously priced. It was a birthday lunch so I couldn't complain too much. I will at this point, though. I can't even identify the dish from the menu. It was fried with the head and... More
