One of the best Malaysian cuisine I have had outside Malaysia. It is not totally authentic, but the adaptations are fantastic. For example, the roti canai is normally not crispy but it is here. Some of the dishes are superb. The outstanding ones you should try are beef Rendang, chili chicken and the mango beef. A very nicely laid out space with lots of room. We had 16 people and they were quite god to arrange a long table to accommodate all. Fantastic service!

Because Malaysian food is authentically a fusion of a variety of cuisines, Indian, Chinese, Thai, of course Malaysian,Peninsula has something delicious for everyone. The restaurant is large, the service good and they keep the music low or off so it is a great place to actually convivially talk to your companions. You should try the Roti, a thin bread, if only because you can watch it being made through the huge window that is open into the kitchen - the chef creates a dough much larger and thinner than the largest pizza. If you enjoy tofu, and like spicy food, the Spicy Golden Tofu is out of this world. They make the tofu in-house and it tastes fresh. Red curry chicken is another favorite.

On my first night in Minneapolis, I was looking for some ethnic cuisine and a friend suggested that we went there. First impressions are of a very large empty restaurant so I wasn't expecting much. The server quickly brought a large menu with a huge choice and I went for a satay chicken starter followed by a buttered coconut chicken main course. Both were good but the coconut chicken was particularly good. My friend paid but looking at the prices on the menu, it seemed very reasonable for what you got. The decor might be improved by splitting up the room into smaller sections perhaps through the use of some oriental screens. However, the food more than made up for the lack of cosiness.

We went with friends, some of whom come here regularly. We thought the food was terrific and very reasonably priced. Among the highlights were chicken satay ($6.99 for about 5 pieces) and chicken mango ($13.99), both pictured below. We also liked the rotai canai, a very thin pancake served with dipping sauce ($4.25) We had a mixture of moderate and medium spiced foods. The wait staff was very helpful. We dined family style and really enjoyed being here.

The place is spacious with bland decor. You may think that's charming or boring! The menu is so large that is was hard to decide and left me feeling there were too many specials for any to be truest special! Appetizers were good. Main courses were hit and miss. Tried the fried snapper with Belacan sauce. The fermented shrimp paste sauce was very pungent. Rest of diners at our table could not stand the smell. Most entrees had an Indian slant.
It was ok overall. Not sure it was my cuppa tea.
