Not bad..recommended. Will surely come back again. So far this is one that we suite our taste. The problem is hard to find a parking place.

I frequented Penang back when I was a college student in Philadelphia. Many years later I’m in town for work and I could not pass by.

Still so good Roti and Nasi Lemak. Price went by few bucks since...2004 but hey it’s 14 years ago!

One of the classics from Philly.

To me Philly budget gourmet in style (tourists and locals alike) in no particular order:

- any Vietnamese and Mexican joints on Washington
- Lorenzo and Sons
-Pats, Gino’s or Jim’s
- Rita’s
- Silk City
- Penang

After a long drive to arrive in Philadelphia, the hotel concierge recommended Penang for dinner. What a great choice! The food covered the spectrum for everyone in our party. The soups were abundantly large, with noodles and won tons that were delicious. The bar-b-q was extremely tasty and the cost was very reasonable. If you are near Chinatown, stop in to Penang.

Lovely food excellent fast service. Sure sign of the popularity of the restaurant was the fact that it was constantly full. One criticism would be from my fellow diners the amount of bones in some of their food.

Huge menu selection and portion sizes also generous. Roti and satay curry starters are worth going for alone. Fast service and tasty food. If you need a break from burgers and pizza - this is a great allternative....
