We only been here once because we wanted to try something other than Banana leaf to compare the experience with food, was not impress with the food. It was kind of greasy, and place was empty, but service was good, the server was so polite,

This restaurant offers good Asian food choices. Tried a number of dishes and the roti prata is still the best. The restaurant offers many Malaysian and Singapore dishes but the taste is not 100% authentic. I would give 70 marks on average for the dishes. Service level is average with nice friendly waitresses. The pricing is average and not expensive.... More

I could not say the food was bad or good, it was just food. I have been in other Malaysian restaurants and this one has nothing to offer. Service is poor, the quality and taste of dishes is just average. I will not come back.

So I was here last night 12/7/15 at around 9PM because in all my experience traveling to Malaysia, the food is superb. I decided to try the New Penang Garden last night and my experience is that the food is horrible. The only thing that was halfway decent was the roti canai (but keep in mind, that was my appetizer).... More

Been there twice in this trip. Good food and very helpful staffs. Tried Thai beer instead of regular ones. Usual food for me but it has plenty of options.

Great Restaurant. 1. We came in for late Lunch after a long morning house hunting in Milpitas, California. 2. Food we ordered were much better than we anticipated even at 3 PM. 3. Service was great - the waitress stopped eating her lunch and attended us. We felt sorry to interrupt her lunch break, but, she was quite happy -... More

We enjoyed our dinner of chicken satay, sizzling seafood, and pad thai. I had a Thai Ice tea. We also had water with dinner. Portions were good size and we have left overs for another meal. The restaurant has a lengthy list of menu items. They also have some fresh fish items. Service was good and attentive. A big group... More

Went for lunch and ordered the set menu items. However, we ordered 3 more dishes, but I think the set menu would have been plenty. There were 5 of us and we ended up taking a lot of leftovers. The lamb curry dish was excellent - meat was very tender. The coffee ribs were sticky and a little tough, but... More

This restaurant is located in a place called Barber Court which is shopping center near several airport hotels and tech centers. This shopping center caters to the Asian population as most of signs and menus are in characters. Walking around we felt like we were in Asia which we liked very much but were unsure of where to eat and... More
