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.

The food here reminds me of the time when I used to live in Singapore. Very good food but a tad bit expensive. Must try!

Being relatively new to Asian quisine the huge menu is a bit daunting. Some questions about items went unanswered because of language issues, a common occurrence. Supper was a delicious big bowl of Won Ton soup and a interesting appetizer called roti canai, flat bread...More

This was my first visit to Penang and first time in over twenty years trying Thai food. The food was excellent. I tried the Drunk Man. It was unique to me, but very good. My shrimp choice was terrific, excellent shrimp. The meal came with...More
