This was the first meal eaten during a long weekend in Manchester. It was also the best meal that we ate. The service was quick and the food was good. Will be returning.
Food was top notch, service superb. Definitely will be returning
Fantastic food, good service, given roses on Valentine’s Day which was a lovely touch! Would recommend
Excellent service and food. Highly recommended.
Great food and friendly members of staff. Highly recommended!
The food was really delicious. Service was great and had a really good time.
A personal favourite of ours, service is always 10/10 also
On the plus side:
- the food is excellent
- the waiters are pleasant and efficient
- it’s next door to the Frog & Bucket if you want to make it a full night out
On the downside:
- the tables are sticky
- the furniture is falling apart and the carpet (!) is very old
Food was fantastic. Even though it was roasting hot outside I amazed the waitress ( who was great) that I wanted a Prawn Tom Yam soup. I mean the Thais have it and it's a steamy hot Country so why not?
Followed by a Beef Rendang and some Roti's. Both were wonderful.
Can't rate the restaurant highly enough and will be going back as soon as. Only downside was the location. Can't people have an evening out without endless beggars and people looking for a brawl ruining the night?
We love the food here. All excellent. The staff are very friendly and helpful. They do dishes you can’t find anywhere else in Manchester - and I have searched.
Great food great service. A must for Manchester.
Family meal before event at MEN Arena, service quick, food excellent & reasonably priced.
Tasty asian food served by friendly staff for our pre-concert meal. Will definitely be going back for a longer visit.
Excellent food and staff. We had the Thai green curry and the char kuey teow - both were delicious.
The food was so delicious.. full of flavour. The customer service was brilliant.. we ordered vegetarian dumplings and they ended up having prawns in them.. they straight away asked if we wanted to replace it with something else and took it off our bill with an apology.
Food was excellent, large portions and service was good. Prices were reasonable, good value for money.
Despite booking a table for 19:30, we didn't get seated until 19:50. Then there was a long wait until we actually received menus.
After that, everything was good. The food was excellent and good value.
Unfortunately, the restaurant then marked us as a no-show, so we received an email from OpenTable asking what had happened...
Whilst promoted as a Malaysian Restaurant some of the dishes on the menu are Thai. However, the food is tasty and prices are reasonable. Service was prompt and the staff were very pleasant. I would recommend it.
Food was fantastic and the service was great too. We’ll definitely come back.
Excellent food and service. Recommended.
Just needs better lighting to read the menu.
Amazing food and lovely atmosphere ! Will be back again soon
Amazing food , great staff . Will be back when we visit Manchester again. Loved it x
Good vibe, very nice food and service was very good. Lighting may have been slightly too dark but besides that no complaints. Would go again to try more from the vast menu
Excellent authentic Malay cuisine & excellent service!
Went for my anniversary,biiked a table was not too busy and we were served and seated quickly ,drinks very tasty and the food was even better . Servers were great and easy to speak to and got some dessert for our anniversary . Overall fantastic experience and will go again.
Went for my wife's birthday and we were impressed with the service and the food. The restaurant was a cosy and warm setting and food tasted amazing. Highly recommend it.
Perfect Birthday celebration for my wife.
Booked a table here after a friend brought me a takeaway from here. Good delicious although they do seem to try to rush you through the courses to get you out.
Food was a little greasy but tasty nonetheless - will be back for more.
As always the food was tasty and delicious, this is our favourite restaurant and would highly recommend. The staff are also polite, friendly and efficient.
Staff were friendly and helpful , food was lovely and menu varied
We ate here as a group of 6, with a vegan in the party
Food was lovely - particularly the laksa soup which was a special - a huge, hot and delicious bowl of loveliness!
Fantastic meal, service and price!
Fantastic food, only let down was the service. Waiter in a rush to get our order; given a menu that wasn't relevant to the day we ate; had to chase a missing order; asked by waiter to leave before 6.30, he should have given the option to move tables. That said, I would hope we just caught an off night.
Gorgeous and tasty meal and great value. Service very good and very helpful with questions regarding menu
As I stated to the hostess, I have visited Singapore and Malaysia and though I would not expected the same quality of food overall it was disappointing. My son’s soup was acidic and for a prawn type soup it lacked the central ingredient and that is prawns. The starters were above average and my son’s main course was good. Overall it was just an above average dining experience and taste from this Malaysian restaurant was not authentic.
Nice Thai restaurant in the Northern Quarter.
Food and service was very good.
Beautiful food, party of four all kept changing our minds as very dish was a possibility. Friendly staff, my new favourite first choice. Thankyou.
My wife and I decided to eat at Penang prior to going to the Barry Manilow concert last Sunday. We arrived at 5.00 pm and decided to opt for the main menu with a 20% discount on everything. We chose three starters to share and a main course each. Everything we ate was very good-would certainly come again if in Manchester.
Visited to celebrate my wedding anniversary. The food was delicious! The service was fabulous, the staff were very friendly and liked to have a joke or too. This is not a pretentious restaurant, it is somewhere that has character and fun staff and I would definitely recommend to others.
Food was amazing and staff were very helpful and polite! Can’t wait to go back!
