  • Penang Malaysian Cuisine - Atlanta, GA -  BearBacker

    Tasty Food, Good Service

    I discovered this place about two months ago, and have been back several times, mostly for lunch. With only one exception, every dish I've had has been excellent. Don't miss the Beef Rendang! Much of the menu is pretty spicy, but there are plenty of less fiery choices available. Besides the Malaysian cuisine, they also prepare Thai and some Chinese dishes, but the Malaysian food is the reason to eat there. Service has always been prompt, helpful, and very friendly.

    Tasty Penang Malaysian Food in Chamblee

    We usually go to this plaza for a nearby vegetarian place, but decided to try Penang on an impulse, and I'm glad we did. The atmosphere and lighting were very nice, especially on a hot Spring afternoon. For our appetizer, we ordered the Penang Satay, which is marinated chicken on skewers with a wonderful peanut sauce. We've been to quite a few Atlanta Thai restaurants, and I think this Satay beat them all quite handily. J. ordered a rice dish, Nasi Lemak, which is coconut rice flavored with cloves & screwpine leaves, served with chili anchovy curry, chicken rendang, and fried egg, as well as pickled vegetables. He commented that the anchovy curry was very strong on the anchovies, and I could only take his word for it, since anything with anchovy on the menu is outside of my realm of edible cuisine, but the other items were quite tasty. I went with one of the House Specials, Ayam Rendang, chicken cooked over low heat in a lemon grass and chili paste, and then simmered in thick rich coconut curry. This is a comfort food wonder, taking me back to the days of my grandmother's wondrous pot roasts on Sunday afternoons, and I was very happy with the dish as my clean plate testified to the waitress. We closed with a coconut ice cream, creamy and rich, with real shaved coconut, and it cleansed out palates quite nicely. I suspect we will definitely be back for more.

    This Malaysian Cuisine is VERY authentic and delicious! The fried rice is extremely good. The chicken with black bean sauce is also a tasty dish.

    Penang is my new favorite restaurant. There are many wonderful, tasty dishes that can accomodate any palate. My favorite was the Misiam and the Char Kuew Tao (not sure on those spellings).

    I have been here a number of times and love the soups. Great atmosphere, almost out of character for the area but really nice. Extensive menu, and they'll help with suggestions. Easy to get in and out of. Also, they participate in a program where you can get skymiles for dining there (requires prior setup through Delta Skymiles Dining). Great for dinner with friends or lunch with a colleague.

    I used to go to this location but I moved to NW GA and it was too far to drive. Then a Penang opened up in Kennesaw so I was very ecstatic. Two of my favorite dishes are the fried tofu w/ peanut sauce appetizer and the pulut hitam dessert (sticky black rice w/ coconut milk). Those two alone are enough for me. I always recommend this first to anyone new or traveling in that area over any other restaurant. Keep up the great food, selection, service, and prices!

    Service Iffy, Food More than Makes Up for it

    This restaurant is stashed away in the corner of a shopping complex, but is well worth being discovered. The beef rendang is unbelievable, as are many of their other dishes. The thai tea is a nice way to wash it all down. Tastes authentic, good price.

    Delicious Malaysian food. The only disadvantage to this restaurant is that there are calories. Dish after dish are perfected to be appetizing and filling. I cannot wait to go their for special occasions, and the restaurant is beautiful.

    The food at this restaurant is authentic and excellent in taste. The servers are friendly and the service is very fast. However, I would not reccommend trying to eat there at 7pm on a weekend as the restarant is very popular but if you want to hold a dinner party they do take reservations. A few dishes that I would reccommend are the roti canni (an appetizer consisting of bread you dip in curry sauce), the vegetable curry, and the lamb rendang.

    Thai or chinese food again? Try Penang. First we were a little bit afraid, but no fear they have many selections for everyone. Something for sweet? Try peanut pancake, wow, very tasty! Nice atmosphere too!

    From the minute you drive up Buford Hwy and start to see the signs change from English to various Asian languages, you know you're going to get a great, authentic meal. The service at Penang is excellent,I love the tofu appetizer with peanut sauce. For an entree, the curry dishes are great (similar to Thai) and the Chow Fun is also wonderful. For a one-of-kind the Taro Basket filled with delicious chicken and veggies is a winner. You'll need a doggie bag.

    Great Malyasian

    A fun, great, clean family atmosphere. Ready for something different for a family night out? This unique restaurant serves top quality Malysian food (a blend of Thai and Indian) with terrific service. For the younger set, they are quick with the paper plates, water cups with straws and lids and an impromptu oragami lesson by the wait staff. Don't miss #65 on the menu!
