The menu is different, and the place was recommended by a friend - so we headed to Otahuhu to try Penang.
The food was not authentic unfortunately for us, was definitely diluted to Kiwi tastes. The sambal did not taste anything like it should be and was sweet :( Not happy..

Went there for a lunch one day after meeting a business associate in Otahuhu. Beef rendang was not well prepared.
Received poor service from the lady behind the counter (possibly the owner). Found out that she actually hails from Mainland China (her last name is Zhou) and not Malaysia. Talk about authenticity....

I have been here twice and have got sick both times after dining here. I eat out a lot and have never had issues elsewhere. Have to admit the food is delicious. Checked their rating on the council website and it's a B. Obviously room for improvement. Not sure if I am ready to go back yet.

We have eaten at this restaurant a few times over many many years and never been disappointed. Their coffee pork is quite frankly superb! Its not a big place so would recommend booking. Service very good and staff always friendly. Thoroughly recommended for a cheap and cheerful meal.

highly recommend tropical chilli fish! the sauce is amazing :O
also, the Special tofu is crispy on the outside, silky on the inside. the hainanese chicken rice is tasty.
a bit of a shame that there is only one person working in the front though
