Food was pretty good all round, with good service. The overall restaurant itself is nice but nothing amazing. Definitely would recommend and visit again
Genuine Malaysian and Singaporean food, great service
Amazing food and very friendly and smiley waiters. The only problem we had was with the old man who seemed to be in charge of front of house. I originally booked a table of 6 but then called to change it to a table of 4 with over 24 hours notice. When we got there he brought this up like it was a huge problem because their system hadn't changed the booking and he had set the table for 6 people. He kept explaining that he had to move a table outside to seat 6 people and then just stood around staring at us like it was a big problem until we asked if we were going to be seated or declined to eat at the restaurant, in which he begrudgingly took us to our table. He asked who took the phone call when I made the change and then made a horrible face when I told him. He never smiled at us the whole time we were at the restaurant. We enjoyed the service from all other staff though.
Food was outstanding, service excellent.
I love Penang the food is always delicious and it's so close to what I've had in SE Asian countries. The only downside is that it's a bit cold sitting outside and the service is a bit slow, we've had to walk in to ask for the servers to come take our order.
Came here to celebrate a friend’s birthday during dinner time. We were greeted with great hospitality as soon as we got there and the staffs are really accommodating and friendly. They brought out the cake we prepared earlier, and went the extra mile by adding a sparkler candle and cheered on with us. Not to mention the food there is fantastic and really authentic too. The dishes reminded me of home, and so did my friends enjoy theirs. Overall, it was an amazing experience and I’ll definitely be back again to try other items on their menu.
Excellent food and service! We will be back. Such a good restaurant if you love Malaysian food
Outstanding food and service!
Will definitely be back! Can’t recommend enough.
We enjoyed everything we ordered at the restaurant.
The service was amazing !
Great evening good service and a fun environment
Lovely food. Great welcome. The roti canai is the greatest starter in Manchester!!
Lovely food, will definately go back. Friendly staff made us feel very welcome.
It was a bit quiet due to current circumstances, but nothing the restaurant can do about that.
Food was great, think we were forgotten about when initially seated but once order taken was fine.
Took some food home with us too and it reheated really well.
Should allow tips to be added to card machine as we tend not to use/handle cash since covid.
Delicious food, friendly and helpful staff. A hidden gem!
Very friendly staff and amazing food
Food was very mediocre. To be honest the fish cakes were bland and dry. Mains nothing to write home about.
Always Great food and service, definitely worth a visit Xx
The food was lovely! Very Well presented and tasty!
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.
