Whatever else you order at this restaurant, make sure to get the Roti Canai. Nobody on staff seems quite sure how to pronounce it, but they certainly know how to prepare it. Both the chicken and vegetarian versions of this dish are roti-licious. In all other respects, this is a better-than-average restaurant, and definitely the closest you'll get to authentic... More

After a trip to United Noodles to pick up groceries, we adjourned to Peninsula for lunch. As it was a weekday, I opted for the lunch special of pineapple chicken which was priced at $8.99. Unfortunately it was the typical sweet and sour chicken served at Chinese takeaways catering to American clientele. It came with steam rice and a single... More

My partner and I enjoyed sharing roti canai followed by a chicken/veggie rice noodle dish - both were delicious. To a lesser degree we enjoyed a veggie/rice/green curry dish. The curry could have been more full-bodied and spicier (to be fair, we may not have been clear on this when ordering). The place was quiet as we arrived hungry and... More

Ambiance is average, but the appearance is very clean. One can see the kitchen from the restaurant. The service was superb with very respectful, friendly and attentive servers. We ordered the roti canai appetiser which was extermely flavorful/tastey. The spare rib appetizer was unfortunately tasteless and too salty, one needed the sauces to get any sort of flavor. When we... More

I had an entree featuring shrimp with a red curry sauce. It also had mini corn on the cob, carrots, tomatoes and mushrooms. There was a warmth to the sauce, but it was not hot. The shrimp were large, and I got 2 or 3 times the shrimp I expected. Very good dish. The service was also good, and my... More

If I could write a review on just the Tofu Curry Hot Pot, it would be 5 start! It is our standing take out order and I dream of it's perfection. Based on this we went here with friends and ordered a variety of other dishes and they were all disappointing. Luckily, we did order the Tofu Curry Hot Pot... More

Visited Peninsula for the 1st time and was certainly impressed with the choices and flavors. We tried several appetizers including roti canai and satay and a variety of main dishes including Chicken Rendang, Steamed Fish, Basil Chicken, Curry Udang, and Char Kway Teow, Have to say the food was delicious and very authentic. Highly Recommend it,

The decor and ambiance is great. The food tastes good, but in the greasy side. Needs a bit more spice. Courteous staff. Clean facility.

This is still a solid choice, but so many in the neighborhood are doing so much better now. I had a chicken curry dish that was good, above average. The service was above average, not great. But, yep, an average review, because for the price and reputation, they need to turn out something better than the rest of the market.... More
