I have come here few times just for the appetizer and dessert. For me, the main courses are okay. It has a great selection of Asian foods but I think it's just good. But what make me want to comeback here is Roti Canai and Ice Kachang. Roti Canai is a kind of bread that is thin and crispy but... More

Penang Bistro has an excellent selection of food on their menu. The dishes hail from Singapore and Malaysia and are rich and tasty. I adore the roti canai which comes with a dish of curry and is light and crispy. The decor of their restaurants is always elegant and I love the aroma of green tea that fills the room.... More

I dined out in Penang Bistro, Grand Indonesia, with a friend on Christmas Eve 2013. The quality of food was excellent. But the waitresses impressed me most. They were very attentive and competent. For example, when my friend asked what inside the food was, they tried their best to consult the chef. This is very important if you have certain... More

Booked this place for a staff Christmas party in December - 15 people in a private room. As soon as we sat down they stuck the karaoke machine on (???) and then various staff members traipsed in and out trying to make the air con work. After this unpromising start things improved. The menu was decent and we ordered lots... More

Always our family's favourite. Good quality food, nice ambience.. Equal to what you paid for... except for fish. Don;t buy any steamed fish. It is good but they are overcharging too much..

Oh I love this amazing restaurant, it has the delicious taste of Malay food. When I went there last time with my family, I ordered the hainanese chicken set (contains hainanese rice, soup, and the chicken itself) and it was really yummy and great. I also have ordered the chicken satay, and the fried rice. It was also amazing. The... More
