Good food, nice atmosphere

Nice atmosphere, the staff were really friendly. We brought our own wine there was just a corkage fee of a couple of euro. The portions are really big we had starters and mains but couldn't finish it all so the staff boxed it up for us to take home. Food was tasty and fresh and not too stodgy which... read more

When we walked in and we were alone we wondered why? It was a rugby world cup game and many filtered in as time went by. The starter was easily a 10 out of 10 (I visit Thailand regular) and it was easily the best I ever tasted. With a bottle of well chosen South African Rose wine we ordered... More

Four of my friends and I were visiting Wicklow for the regatta festival (which by the way is a wonderful week in Wicklow Town, filled will great festivities) when we decided to visit Penang Garden. Granted it was a bank holiday weekend the restaurant was extremely busy which meant the service was a bit slow. However, all staff were friendly... More

Fabulous food and very friendly service in a lovely location. Sushi was sensational as were the tempura, war tip dumplings and chilli ramen (pure spicy goodness in a bowl). Every dish was delicious and it was clear that everything was prepared and cooked to order using fresh ingredients. A major plus was that no MSG was evident in the food.... More

Dinner for four. We all enjoyed all of the courses. Amazing veggie spring rolls, tofu Pad Thai and Curry. Lovely service too and very authentic (had an Asian waitress who was so overly respectful in such a cute way we felt like we were in Japan!).

Went here on a recommendation from a local. We got a table with a river view and the staff were very friendly and the service very good. The food was excellent and we would certainly eat here again the next time we are in Wicklow.

This is one that lies between average and very good - the higher rating influenced by the food, the main reason for visiting a restaurant. Food was very tasty; service a bit patchy; good portions - and happy to give leftovers in a doggy bag. I wouldn't travel a distance to it but a tasty local oriental restaurant
