My favorite is Curry Mee soup. I like the rice too. But I' addicted to that soup and when I go there I always get the same. I should try other options.

My first visit to Penang was not one to recommend. My husband and I ordered a fish dish for my son's lunch and it was outrageously priced. It was a birthday lunch so I couldn't complain too much. I will at this point, though. I can't even identify the dish from the menu. It was fried with the head and... More

I work across the street and this used to be one of my go-to restaurants. The service has absolutely bottomed out in the last year. Today was the last time I will ever go. I ordered Pad Thai with chicken. I explained to the server that I have a severe shellfish allergy and I cannot eat shrimp. So, the dish... More

I have eaten at Penang for many years, but doubt I will ever return. The woman at the front desk is even ruder and less helpful than ever and food definitely not up to old standards. I asked the server what kind of fish was in the curry fish and okra and she didn't know, so she sent the woman... More

I ate the vegetarian Kari Sayur and it was one of the best tastes I have had. My friend had Buddhists delight but that was ok. Kari Sayur was huge portion, rice that came with it was not enough for the portion but that was ok with me as I was in a hurry. But the taste has stayed with... More

The delicious Malaysian food is so fresh and creative! Try the superb appetizer Roti Canai, the eggplant entree and various noodle dishes. The service is excellent!

My boyfriend loves trying all kinds of food, so we ended up here last Sunday and I'm so glad we did. The food was amazing. Our server was really nice, but it took us quite some time before our order was taken (there was only one other couple there at the time so we weren't sure what the hold up... More

The food here is good but the service is so poor that I would never go back. I have this restaurant 3 chances and at all 3 times the servers were rude, the restaurant owner is rude - so I say so what if the food is good - I can find good food and good service elsewhere! Don't waste... More

Portions were small. Prices were high. Taste was decent. Service was average despite. There were five other tables being served at the same time. The restaurant is located in a strip mall in a little Asian community along Buford Highway - 15 minutes from Buckhead. I think the place has a lot of potential, and maybe it had already peaked...
