The service is lightning fast. The food is dependably delicious and unique. The interior design is clever and comfortable. One of my very favorite restaurants in Philadelphia.

I was in a hurry and took the first Asian restaurant I encountered. The food was OK but I eat a lot of Asian and it was far short of excellent. The mango cucumber salad was fresh and the best thing I had. Curry was so-so, and the noodle dish greasy.

I don't think I ever had a bad dish at this place. Service is always good, quick and friendly. I usually go for the boneless chicken curry and a pair of appetizers, their fried ice-cream is to die for.

We always go to Penang when we are in Chinatown. They have very good food and aren't expensive. Penang is also very clean and nice inside. Watching the chefs cook is fun. I highly recommend the #1 Indian pancake. Our family of 4 usually comes out to be no more than $50 (with tip), if that,
