The place to go for Malaysian food 3/20/2006

So I admit, I don't know if this is what authentic Malaysian food is supposed to taste like, but it tastes pretty darn good. You can start off with Indian rotti (the crepe like bread) to dip in some tasty chicken curry. The lunch specials are great, ranging from Mango chicken, mango shrimp, chicken curry, and they come with appetizers and rice. Good sized portions and very affordable. The dishes are very tasty and the presentation is very appealing as well. I highly recommend Penang for a lunch or dinner meal. The Malaysian ice-coffee is also a great drink to order. The wait staff is also pretty friendly. more

Delicious malaysian food 1/17/2006

If you never try Malaysian food, you should come here and try it out. It is really great food. Spicy but unique spices. The environment is also good, the setting is okay. The price is kind of expensive but it is worth it. A lot of people during the weekend. They also have another branch at chinatown. Try their roti canai, it is a heavenly food. more
