Great Malaysian cuisine that has not suffered at all from years of popularity. A great example of how to maintain quality over the years.

Penang Bistro is one of my fav. resto. The taste is good & unique, a blend of Indo-Malay.
Extensive variation on menu to choose from appetizser to dessert. Our fav is Tofu Negeri Jiran and Crab in coconut sauce. Yummy.

I've been to Penang Bistro several times in Kuningan and Senayan,
The food is nice - my absolute favourite is the roti canai. The decor of the restaurants is also nice. I'll be back!

trip advisors recommendation abound, penang bistro has won the 2012 certificate of excellence aware from trip advisor for constantly rcving top ratings and recommendations

famous for the
Roti canai chicken curry
Roti canai beef curry
(both must try fares)

penang char kway teow and penang laksa and clay pot seafood noodle. all rich in spices and condiments that will leave u craving for more.. but hold on.. u still have a lot coming..

the Singapore crispy sotong and Mayonnaise shrimp are great appetizers or even in between meals fare..

the chef special fried rice is their famous rice fare wrapped in omelette. have enuf to leave u space for more that may come along the way

Sapo tofu - a bit on the heavy side due to the gravy but excellent with white steamed rice
Chicken kailan - one of my favorites that has the best of both worlds. meat and veges. and this is a great combo cooked in perfect style

the drinks are presented in style and adds color to the table as different drinks come with combo of different fruits and syrups to give it the flavours
famous are their ambula juice and kopyor (young coconut)
the tropicana tea fantasy and lychee orange ice tea is a great hit with kids but ask the servers to reduce the ice put into the drinks to avoid your kids ending up with a throat problem and putting u in fear of why suddenly their voices are dimmed :)

desserts
tropical indo malay combination of ice, fruits, nuts and jelly make up the lively part at the end of the menu with Es campur special PB and ide merah delima taking the cake
the apple crumble and almond tarts can do better as few other places offer greater taste for their cakes and pastries

decent pricing for the quality of food, service and interior
