Pros: Tastes good

Cons: Hair in food

Used to be very good - seems to have declined sharply. Soups are tasteless, dishes have little variety, not very flavorful.

I've been going to Penang for years (both at Harvard Sq and Chinatown) and never been disappointed with their consistent quality of food and service. BUT, the Cambridge location is now called "Rendang", with a new menu - new graphic

Pros: Delicious, usually large waitstaff

Cons: "Rendang" location now more $$$

We order the Indian 'pancake' with the curry sauce that is definetly something worth to come back for. We also order the CUrry Mee with Young Tau Foo which is not worth the money. Seafood with crispy noodle is great, recommended. Beef

This place has good good, though the appetizers are tastier than the entrees. I haven't had a bad meal here though. The service, on the other hand, leaves much to be desired--the servers are so attentive that one feels harrassed. It is

Pros: Great food, great drinks, Food came quickly

Cons: chilly by windows, pushy servers, weird interior design

The first time we were there, the service and food was great. I took my out of town guests the second time I visited them. It was 15-20 minutes before kitchen was to close. They asked us to rush in our order (fair enough). However, the

This place is similar to the one in New York, but the food is not as good. I would recommend going for lunch when they have a lunch menu that gives you some appetizers and a great jicama salad on the side. Try the mango chicken and the

although i had heard good things about penang, we did not enjoy the food experience (a feeling that only increased in intensity for hours after we left.) everything we ordered was smothered in grease, and clearly everything was cooked in

Pros: great view, fast service, no wait

Tasty food (most closely related to Chinese, and maybe Indian food). Big menu, reasonable prices, nice service. Generally easy to get a table. Great lunch specials as well. Casual. This is one of the places I go to get a good, predictable

Pros: Good Location, Inexpensive, Authentic

Cons: Hard for parking

Food is just as good as the Chinatown location, but the modern decor is jarring. I prefer the more authentic feel of the bamboo walls at the downtown location! Try the yam pots, a terrific treat!
