“for a malaysian flavor”
Reviewed 31 January 2012

Lets face it, if you are in Malaysia, the best way to sample local cuisine is to hit the streets. look every nook and cranny and you will bump into food. however, at times, we only have that few hours or transit and would have no time to try our the local dishes. fret not! at the heart of kuala lumpur in KLCC, there is this quaint cafe that serves close to authentic malaysian food. The dishes include char kway teow (fried noodles), rojak,(fruit salad) laksa(noodles in asam fish broth). but be prepared to queue during peak hours! wash everything down with the chendol (sweet dessert drink) or soya bean! love it!

“Brilliant asam laksa”
Reviewed 30 January 2012

Little Penang's Asam Laksa is really good, and i love how they put the big pieces of fish in it! The cendol is awesome too!
The char koay teow is alright (can get better ones outside)... and i hate the long queue to get in!

“Great top hats”
Reviewed 27 January 2012

KLCC location. The top hats here are outstanding. The rest of the meal was just average. My wife and her friends love this place. Maybe I should go back and order something different to see if it was just the particular dish I ordered that was average.

“Convenient place to get a taste of Penang”
Reviewed 23 January 2012

Little Penang was one of the earlier restaurants to offer Penang food in an airconditioned cafe. I think they had their first branch in Midvalley. In any case, the food there is quite good. I've had their prawn mee, rojak, char koay teow and have been satisfied. It may not be as good as the best hawker examples in Penang, but for a cafe style setting in KL it does acquit itself well.
