A little taste of Malaysia

There are many eateries along The Promenade at ground level Robina Town Centre, but for that delicious Malay flavour we always head to River Penang. Table service is prompt, and the menu choices are varied. Love my Char Keow Teow noodle dish and theirs is no exception at $14,80. Was recommended by... read more

We have eaten many other options on the menu, all have been delicious but the Laksa is the best I have had on the coast. Creamy, full of seafood and flavorsome, ask for some chili if you want to heat it up a little, sooo good. They also serve bubble tea, a fun name for milky or sweet juice teas,... More

Nice causal place with nice food. Too casual if you want a romantic night out. Great for that causal meal.

Visited the restaurant again last night, the food as always was excellent and great value for money I recommend the combination laksa. The portions are large and filling.

Next to the lake in Robina Shopping centre is a strip of popular after hours restaurants and eateries. River Penang caught our eye, as having lived in Malaysia and knowing the flavours intimately, we thought from the menu we had a good chance of something good. We sat at a table that was quite greasy, and when the waiter wiped... More

The staff were uninterested - they were more interested in talking to each other. Quick food service though once ordered. The food was pretty average. Chicken satay (entree) which was ok but I think I make a better satay sauce and then Masaman beef and nasi goring which were dry and pretty bland. No extra chilli or sauces were provided... More

I took my son to River Penang for lunch in late October 2015. I have been to River Penag many times previously. The food is consistently of a high standard - a mix of Asian dishes from Malaysian, Thai, Indonesian and Singaporean heritages. Well cooked and well presented. I have not ever been disappointed with a meal at River Penang.... More

Always visit this restaurant at least 1-2 times per week since I have moved to live in Gold Coast. Staff always prompt response and can remember my orders. Love this place.

Fest time there I tried meals that weren't on the list of popular meals and it was great but wasn't bad either. Went back to try something from the list....I shall continue to go there and pick from this list as there is so much to choose from and what I have chosen to date have been delicious 👌🏽👌🏽👌🏽👌🏽
