We enjoyed our visit to Penang Road Restaurant. The food came promptly and was very delicious, although my partner's vegetables were slightly undercooked and were lacking salt. Some of the drinks also seemed to just have been mixed with Fruit Syrup. Overall a very positive experience though.
Excellent value for money , if you are looking for quick but very tasty original Malayasian styled restaurant then you cannot go past Penang Road.Well done.
Pleasant staff, and great tasting and authentic Malaysian cuisine at reasonable prices. We will definitely be returning and we would recommend this to any one after a Malysian experience.
