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

Had a great experience dining out here - they have plenty of vegan options (just ask the server), and their service was impeccable. It's a very spacious restaurant and works for bigger groups as well. Would definitely recommend it!

Have been there several times. I like seafood noodles and Long Lee Fish, but Beef Lo Mein doesn't taste good enough from my point view.

When you have friends that are less than adventurous, this restaurant always has a certain wow. Fried rice like no other place, spice levels that make mild a little more wild and tastes that are unique. Service is intense and the staff stays busy so be patient.

We took a long walk from downtown Minneapolis to explore "Eat Street" and enjoyed the authentic ethnic atmosphere (most of the patrons were from the region) and the same kind of setting I have experienced in San Fransisco China Town (rather loud and crowded, but family/friend gatherings, many not speaking in English). The food was tasty and very generous in... More

Peninsula has some good menu choices but others could use a few changes. The roti canai, a traditional Malaysian pancake with curry chicken and potato sauce is very good. However the chicken satays were a dark meat, slightly rubbery and had a peculiar taste and yellow sauce which only appeals to a certain palate. The pineapple chicken is very good... More

This was my first time to taste Malaysian food. I liked their sate, and spring roll appetizer. Their lady finger with shrimp paste dish was excellent. I also liked the spicy tofu and their shrimp with mango entrees as well for dessert I enjoyed the fried banana with vanilla ice cream. The place was spacious and clean and the service... More
