Success! Thanks for posting your review of Penang. You’ve done the world some good today.

got ripped of and insulted in the end for overpriced food

so so food and awful bad service.Very greedy and rude people. They will charge you more for what you see on the menu. Then they will say you rude things if you try to argue call u fat, or try to call 911. best is stay away for them. There are honestly many other better thai food places in the city where you can go. I honestly do not recommend this to anyone as food is really pricey and owner is really very greedy and... view more

Worst Restaurant in Atlanta

Worst restaurant experience of my life. I visited Penang last night after hearing good reviews from a friend. The appetizers we ordered were based off of the server's recs and they were mediocre at best. But that's not the point of this review. The real focus is the fish. \r \r We ordered the Thai Chili Fish as one of our mains. As soon as the fish was put on our table the stench was nauseating. It was hot, rotten ... view more

Best Malaysian I've Found in Atlanta

This is one of my less frequent Buford Highway haunts, but still a good one. It should be noted, though, that I only rate the food. I'm not into ambiance getting in the way of some good eats. As others have said, the service is poor (sometimes exceptionally so), and the decor of the place is campy at best (with an explosion of fake bamboo). Also mentioned by others, the food does have some occasional misses, but ... view more

Rude customer service, good food

This place is only good for a to-go. Roti Canai is simply awesome especially for the price ($3). If you dont mind your food a lil greasy, try the char qua tweay noodles ($7) which is good too. Most menu items are reasonbly priced. The waiters definitely need lessons in hospitality.

They need lessons on customer service...

I just cannot believe the customer service at this restaurant. Make no mistake, the food was good, nothing extra ordinary. The waitress thinks this is a third world country. I don't know how they serve in Malaysia but this is USA, goddammit. No words, threw the menu on the table, didn't ask for a drink. Roti canai was cold, literally cold. The curry was good though. Entree came after 30 minutes, the place was not eve... view more

Excellent Malaysian food!

I have been to Malaysia a couple of times for considerably long visits; and I can tell that this restaurant truly offers authentic Malaysian food. The roti canai, beef rendang, kari puffs, kari ayam, nasi lemak and Hanianese chicken rice are all absolutely fantastic, as are the noodle dishes, the various kinds of fried rice and the couple of different types of whole fish. I have been to this restaurant at least fif... view more

avoid this place, very poor service

extremely poor service, it took the staff a long time to get our initial order, we waited 30 minutes for our drinks and appetizers, we had to flag down several staff before we got any silver ware and all we got was a fork, no spoons or knives. and our dinner never came! ( we waited close to an hour ) finally we got fed up and left!\r would not recommend this place to anyone, I have been here before , the service ... view more

Promising food; service could use improvement

Impressions from a first visit: service was adequate, if not particularly friendly. We were evidently seated by the same hostess described by the reviewer on 10/10/2007 (or someone who studied under her): a scowling woman who snatched up menus, led us to a table and dropped them, and walked off without saying a word. Servers after that were better, but didn't 'table check' until we had finished and were ready to leav... view more

Exceptionally poor customer service, food is ok if you know what to order.

Reading reviews dated back to 2003, I am surprised the customer service has not improved over years. I was greeted by unfriendly, expressionless waitress the moment I stepped into the restaurant till I paid the bill. During the meal, never were we asked whether the food was ok. She came back with the receipt without even saying thank you. In 6 months, I have been to this restaurant 3 times, and each time service was ... view more
