Just had to try it

This was close to our hotel. Within walking distance if you choose.( Holiday Inn Express ATLANTA-KENNESAW) We drove our car over as my husband has COPD and has trouble walking any distances. Never had Malaysian food and only Thai food once. Always like to try new foods and stay away from the... read more

My boyfriend stumbled upon this place his first week in Kennesaw. He loves Thai food and he decided the last meal for me as a visitor should be brunch at Penang. The service was great. Very attentive. He ordered Pad Thai with chicken and he gobbled up every bit. I forgot the name of my my dish but it was... More

This is a restaurant that advertises as Malaysian cuisine. We sat at table 88_2and the receipt says that our servers name was Penang...not sure since that is the name of the place...however, service was excellent. The server answered all questions , was professional. In addition, the server worked with us when we questioned the children's menu. My daughter got the... More

The service was excellent, as was the food. Interesting menu, blend of Thai and Malaysian. Closed Tuesdays. Pricing was moderate for most dishes.

Penang has been a good restaurant to us over the years - as a family we had dined there several times - ordering many items from the menu in the past. Tonight however was a total nightmare. First thing we noticed when we looked to order was a significant increase in the menu prices. Everything was anywhere from 20-30% on... More

Visited here with family for dinner. The staff is extremely friendly. The food is absolutely delicious! There weren't a lot of people there so we got our food in less than 5 minutes it seemed! The koi pond is filled with some of the biggest koi I have ever seen! It adds a nice touch. We will definitely be back!

My husband and I visited Penang for dinner. We were surprised how authentic the ambiance and Asian cuisine turned out to be. We felt like we were back in Asia. After spending months in China, we had yet to find a restaurant that compared to the real thing in the states. The food was flavorful and fresh. There is an... More

So, I cant pass up a good Malaysian joint. Even left an open night during my hectic week so I can go myself. Last visit Char Kuey Tiao was good, Hokkien Prawn Noodle soup was pretty good, but could be improved. This time I had Char Kuey Tiao again, extraa spicy, and belacan water crest. Awesome. Went back for lunch,... More
