I had a dinner with my friend and we chose this place because it was not crowded at all- we wanted to talk. Hm this place being almost empty- now I know why ! The staff was not really friendly or helpful-we were not familiar with the food. The food didn't taste fresh at all. My chicken was cold. I... More

Some friends took me here while visiting them and I was impressed by the options. I was surprised by how many dishes this place was able to master. Normally, when a restaurant has a wide variety of foods from all over, and not one particular country/ethnicity, then their food quality drops. That is not the case here, it's very good... More

We have just had a family (of 8) lunch here, including one member who was allergic to peanuts. Under new management, the menu has tripled in size, service was a bit slow, but food was every bit as good as before, regardless of choice. Menu had great variety of Thai, Malaysian, Vietnamese and Chinese dishes, which were all delicious. Parking... More

We were taken out to dinner here by our son and his girlfriend. This was their 10th time dining here, so we knew it had to be good. And it was. Opening with crispy duck over salad with the perfect amount of ginger plum dressing and tomyam soup with just enough heat; then to Belechan string bean entree; chock-filled with... More

We had dined at Pinang a few times about eight years ago, after a trip to Malaysia. We enjoyed it, but the hassle of traffic to Forest Hills from Long Island prevented us from keeping up. We recently decided to take friends who like some adventure in dining, and it was a hit. I had actually some reluctance because I'd... More

My wife and I had lunch at this Malaysian place to celebrate her birthday. (She likes this kind of food better than I do.) I just had the Basil Chicken for $10.50. My wife had the “Home Made Roti” ($3.50) as appetizer and Ginger Duck Noodle in soup ($8.00). The food was very good, although my wife said that she... More

Their Malaysian food is very authentic. This is the best malaysian food i have had. The beef Rendang is my favorite. People are very friendly.

Pinang still serves up tasty Malaysian fare, but they've been cutting back on portion size and ingredients. Example: my seafood soup used to contain four shrimp, then three, now two. Other dishes seem to be about 25% less, Unless firmly requested, the soft drinks will arrive with more ice than liquid. When confronted, the owners denied what was so plainly... More

I often stop by Pinang for a quick lunch because I live in the neighborhood. The food is reliably tasty (and healthy) and the portions are adequate. Pinang seems to have successfully adapted the funkier/more pungent dishes to the picky American palate. My menu favorites - the sizzling tofu entree, the roti canai appetizer, the seafood soup, the Malasian bubble... More

My family is Malaysian. So, we are always glad to go out for Malaysian food. We've been to Pinang many times as it is in the neighborhood and the food is pretty good. But it gets harder and harder to go. The service is so poor from start to finish. It's difficult to get seated even when the place is... More
