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

The lunch special menu is a delight. Liked their Green curry which comes with rice combo. The curry is authentic Thai and tasty.

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

In the middle of Kennesaw Mall madness across the street, there is peaceful Penang. I love this restaurant for an oasis of quiet serenity. If you go in the off hours it is a great place to visit with a friend you haven't seen for a year. My friend and me were seated in a booth for 1 1/2 hours,... More
