“Delicious”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 27, 2012

Everything was wonderful. Ordered an assortment including General Tso's, Sweet and Sour Chicken, Ginger and scallion chicken, Egg Rolls, fried rice, and a Spicy Tuna Roll. The fried stuff was crispy and well flavored. Not very oily which is a plus. The Ginger and Scallion Chicken was amazing. Very impressed, especially with the large and diverse menu. The egg rolls could have had more stuffing and the fried rice could have had a tiny bit more flavor, but overall it was very good. My largest complaint was that when they packed up the take out, the sushi was on top of the hot items, so it was warmer than I would have liked it. Next time I will just ask them to put it separately. Overall it was very good and I will definitely be returning!

PS. The parking isn't very good around 6pm so be aware you may have to drive around the block a bit.

“Consistently great Chinese and Japanese cuisine!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 8, 2012 via mobile

Penang is my favorite place for Chinese food. It's always very delicious and it's not super fat fried the way that other places tend to do things. The Mai Tais are delicious and strong. 1 is perfect. Sometimes the wait staff can be a little stand offish but I don't go there to make friends. I would definitely recommend Penang over any other local Chinese restaurant.

“Sketchy”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed January 21, 2012

As you walk into this place you may chance a quick glimpse of the kitchen, if that doesn't turn you off you will probably like the food. The staff are bruske and the whole place has a dirty unfriendly feeling. There are many other places you should try before resorting to this one.
