we checked in this restaurant last weekend with family. All dishes we order taste beautiful especially Mogolian beef. We ended up order two Mogolian beef. It is a small restaurant tucked away on whitehorse road opposite to city town hall. It has a bit of mixture of Chinese and Malaysian. Love it.

This has almost become my second home in Box Hill. They use fresh produce and the wonderful spices and they always go out of their way to do their best for us.

I have been to this restaurant often and it has always been nice, but recently something has changed, it has gone from nice to super delicious. Last week I went with 4 friends and we took the recommendations of the polite and helpful waiter. Every dish was scrumptious and we had plenty to eat. The restaurant was quiet enough for... More

Great little Malaysian restaurant located just up the road from the hustle and bustle of Box Hill Central. The place is always full so be sure to book. What the restaurant lacks in décor it more than makes up in taste and quality of the food. Everything is made fresh and you can certainly taste that it's freshly made. This... More

Had a sumptuous lunch here at the Penang Inn. It's a great change from the other "Chinese" restaurants in the area. Their Prawn Noodles and Char Kuey Tiow is tasty and delicious with full of flavor and makes us want more. Easy parking here and a good change in Box Hill.

This is a great little place with exceptional Malaysian food. The staff are especially helpful. The parking is rather hard but there is some parking at the rear of the hotel.

Ate here last night and enjoyed everything. We had veggie spring rolls, char kway teow and beef rendang, all delicious! Service was efficient and friendly. Wish it was our local. We'll definitely return when next in Melbourne. And it was really cheap, what more could you ask for? Thoroughly recommend it if you enjoy Malaysian food. Yum.

This place has been in the same location in Box Hill for well over 20 years but I had never tried it. So met a friend for dinner one night in March and we were both pleasantly surprised. It was a mid week night and for a while we were the only diners - we did get there early but... More
