Not as good as past visits

While still very good, this pales in comparison to their sister restaurant down the block, Thai Basil, which has a better menu variety selection, is warmer and has better service. The BYOB with no corkage though is a Penang Grill advantage.

We tried this pals a long time ago an after many years we went back with some friends who love this place. Our experience wasn't great before, nor was it this time. But let's be fair. We called them from a movie and warned we would be late. But frankly they shouldn't have started to serve us and then tried... More

When I feel like eating Asian food this is the place to go. This place has great food, excellent/kind service, good prices, peaceful ambience. My favorite dish is the Spicy Mango Sauce with scallops, YUM!! You will not regret it!!

Penang is one of the best places for a tasty and quick lunch near Greenwich Avenue. The lunch specials are all very good especially the mango, curry and ginger sauce variations being really outstanding. The vegetables are very fresh and the food is always delicious. Service is quick so you can get in and out in under 45 minutes if... More

While staying at the Stanton House Inn, we fancied Oriental food for dinner one night. We checked out the book of menus at the B & B's registration desk and selected the Penang Grill, as being the best option in Greenwich, CT. As a result, I ordered the following for three of us: miso soup for one friend and hot... More

This is one of our favorite restaurants in town. We love Asian food, and this place has a great selection of dishes that suit the various moods and cravings that we find ourselves in. We usually do take out, and one time in 10, we'll sit down and eat here. Service is ok, it won't light your socks on fire.... More

I've been to Penang Grill many times and every time, the food is amazing and very fast! I usually have the tempura shrimp which has an amazing sauce with beef fried rice which is also incredible! They also have spicy to non spicy foods with different flavors in each meal you eat! If you are in the area of Greenwich... More
