After we sat down in this deserted restaurant for lunch I checked my app for reviews. They all screamed how bad this place was. But we came away thinking about the good dishes. Waitress who took our orders somehow forgot two of our main courses. She didn’t realise we didn’t have any chopsticks or cutlery. However she was more than... More

Just left this place.. without our food! Tried to order fish, no fish apparently. No fried buns either. And nothing on the dessert menu is available. No milk so can't make teh tarik and after waiting for a LONG time (over one hour) we had to just cancel our order as the food haven't even been made and the kids... More

This most accessible restaurant makes delicious, authentic Asian dishes. It is very reasonable and staff and food delightful. A great choice for families and couples. Also very close (50m) to the Adelaide Paringa Hotel for resident guests!

This restaurant was nestled in a lane, and was discovered when we were exploring the area surrounding our hotel. The premises is quiet but the serving staff is friendly. Food is tasty.

I have visited the Penang alone and with friends on many occasions. It was a favourite in Adelaide CBD. I was concerned when I read recent reviews. Unfortunately I agree with them. The food is still ok but service is poor and the once-quaint inherited decor is now in need of a good clean and, ideally, refurbishment. A real shame,... More

A warm welcome with good service. The coconut juice is very refreshing and the wine list is small, but varied at good prices. The meals were quickly served and they were hot and tasty. Good value and the Szechuan was spicy.

My husband and I had a very good meal this evening. The wonton soup was one of the best I have ever eaten. Our Malaysian dishes were very tasty but we can't judge authentic because we have never eaten Malaysian before. The only improvement I would recommend would be to add more meat to the dishes. The service was excellent... More

I wish I had read the review from here before I ordered my lunch. They increased the price and reduced the meal size. I paid $12.90 for Fried Koey Teow, food was terrible and I am still hungry. Not worth it. I won't come back there again.
