I've ordered Penang Combination Laksa today. Huge serving good for 2 people at affordable price of $15.80. The staff are friendly and accomodating. The ambience is relaxing. Their lunch specials are so inviting to make me come back.

I have eaten here many times lately and am slowly making my way through the menu but it's very hard for me to go past the beef rendang, It's delicious. I also like the fact that you can substitute roti for rice if you wish. Their roti is thin and crispy which I quite enjoy. I can recommend this restaurant... More

This review is just for the laksa. It's the best I've had on that Gold Coast. If you're a laksa addict, definitely go here.

I love coming here whenever I get a craving for Malaysian food. It's a great place for dinner and lunch. Although it's situated in Robina Town Centre, it has a great "hole-in-the-wall" feel to it, like restaurants overseas. River Penang is the only restaurant that comes close to making Chicken Rice that taste like the meals I've had in Malaysia.... More

We recently had dinner here with friends before the movies, the food came out quickly and was very tasty, hot and loads on the plate. We had water without meal and the service was very friendly.

Have visited this restaurant many times (15+) value is fantastic, price is exactly what you would expect being located in a shopping centre but the quality and portion size for the price is exceptional. Not the greatest ambiance but for a quick feed - highly recommended.
