Ate here for lunch. Coconut curry rice with chicken was excellent as was the massaman curry. But, the hot & sour soup had a weird cherry/plum flavor that rendered it nearly inedible for me. No tofu in it and when I asked for a bit...More

I am Malaysian and be very disappointing with the food. "Penang" is the name of a state in Malaysia and they claimed themselves as Malaysian cuisine with Malaysian dishes but the taste and style of cooking of the food is just very 'Chinese', I am...More

This place has a bit of everything -- sushi, Chinese, Korean, etc. It's a bit of a catch-all but I thought the food was pretty good. It was all freshly made and the servings were sizable. You will not leave hungry.

We took a chance on this place because it was family weekend at PSU and everywhere we went there was an hour wait or not at 6:00! I went with my husband and PSU freshman son. We all enjoyed our dinners and agreed we would...More

I have an annual meeting at Penn State and always eat at Penang. Never crowded, incredible menu (Sushi, Chinese, Thai and Malaysian cuisine). Wonderful to have a mix of appetizers (sushi, dumplings, etc.). Very reasonably priced. No liquor license, however. Overall, excellent.

We really enjoy this place every time. Real IndoMalay cuisine plus respectable Chinese and sushi as well. Noodle dishes are the favorites, very tasty sauces, but soups, seafood, appetizers all quite enjoyable. Lucky to have this good stuff in town.

Large portions, quick service, great food. Bit pricey for this genre of food, but would go back again. With college out, place was fairly empty, so felt a bit odd......staff definitely don't smile. Soda from a can - and unlimited refills was kind of funny....but...More

The Beef Rendang tasted very good. The Hainanese Chicken with rice was not as meaty and not served with soup. Overall we had a good meal.

Food is always fantastic. Don't go there for friendly service though. We make a game of seeing if we can make the waiter crack a smile. Judge the food by the clientele - its mostly asian students and staff from PSU. We reckon they can...More
