The Peranakan or Nyonya heritage is traced back to the early adventures of migrants predominantly from the Fujian province in Southeastern China, who settled throughout the Malay Archipelago in South East Asia. In their new environment, and through interracial marriage with the locals, a new cuisine is born. Nyonya cuisine is acknowledged as one of the earliest examples of fusion food, with the Penang Nyonyas artfully blending their cooking techniques and ingredients from the Chinese, Malays, Thais and Southern Indians. Penang Nyonya cuisine, which is not shy of flavours or fragrance, is famous the world over and highly sought after by visitors to Penang. Cooking from the heart, we strive to

We shared 5 dishes . Could not fault them....generous servings, fresh yummy flavours, great service and cheap. Could not ask for a better night out.

Ordered the Car Mee for $17. It was just oily noodles plus a couple of prawns and a little bit of chinese sausage. If you like 98% noodles in oil plus a couple of small extra bits then this is your dish. Otherwise all round...a real letdown and expensive.More

Came here to get our Penang food fix. Tried the pasembur which was delicious and so was the hokkien char and Roti canal. Also tried the otak-otak but found it a bit too fishy, not bad but a tad fishy for my liking. Also ordered...the teh Tarik to finish off our meal. Reasonably priced, good ambience, very popular and busy. Would recommend.More

Nothing pretentious here - just good food at a good price. Service is swift, a great place when you want to eat rather than spend an evening. So much better than a takeaway but not expensive.

Called in with a friend for a meal. This place is very busy with a constant stream of people coming in and out. We can see why because the food is superb. The clay pot rice was outstanding and excellent value for money. Food comes...quickly and looks like a generous serving but it is amazing how easily it is was eaten. Superb eatery.More

Came in here without a reservation on Thursday night and were immediately seated and given menus and water. The service was quick, helpful and kind! The meals were absolutely amazing, every single one of them was a hit and we really struggled to pick a...favourite. If you come here with a group, get one of as much as you can and share! We were absolutely stuffed and still trying to eat more at the end of it.More

Very proud to share this situation as it was rather unusual . We had a take out dinner from Little Penang tonight. Unfortunately the meal wasn't their best due to a little mix up at their kitchen. After getting in touch with the cafe to...give them some constructive feedback, we had a fantastic customer service recovery call. The owner herself called me to apologise, which made the experience just fabulous. We do love their family business and we will carry on supporting it. This kind of experiences are the ones that make a place like Little Penang a gem in our city. Thanks so much.More

Chance upon this eatery less than 5 mins walk from our accomodation. Came here on a Tuesday evening for dinner. Restaurant was busy but service was prompt. Had mee goreng, although slightly oily but delicious. It was a huge serving enough for two. Came here...again the next day for lunch, que to order at counter but pretty fast & prompt, food was equally delicious. Would recommendMore

Impromptu lunch meal, thought I'd try the daily special since always up for trying new things, was quite nice but probably wouldn't get it again. Definitely a great balance of sweet, sour & spicy!
