“Excellent, authentic restaurant.”
Reviewed 27 October 2011

Very good food, very hospitable atmosphere, good value for money.
Our party of four enjoyed every byte, and we could not finish all of the food.
The lemon chicken is excellent, but so was every other dish we ordered.
I hope to return soon to this spot.

“Authentic Malaysian in central Auckland!”
Reviewed 18 October 2011

This is one of our favourite places to dine in central Auckland. The no-frills approach adds to the atmosphere. The food is of a consistently high standard, and remains very affordable. If you are craving am authentic Malaysian meal Sri Pinang is hard to beat.

“Authentic Malaysian food”
Reviewed 15 October 2011

Absolutely loved the food and service at the restaurant. I personally am a Malaysian and the lady knows that i prefer spicy dishes, she never fails to recommend more flavours and spices to enhance the taste of the food i ordered. 5 stars.

“Authentic and tasty!”
Reviewed 26 September 2011

This is a typically 'cosy' little place with character. The owner is a lovely woman who is always very pleasant when greeting/farewelling her guests.
The food is quite authentic and you shouldn't be shy about adding some flavours to the dishes. Tofu usually isn't my favourite so I usually add spices, etc to add flavour.
It can be a bit cramped and noisy so go early for dinner or late around peak times, otherwise have good hearing and be prepared to raise your voice.....especially if a 'colourful' K Rd resident is in the house!

“Best Value in Town”
Reviewed 5 September 2011

We have been regulars at Sri Penang for years. The no-frills approach doesn't include the welcome and Angie is always friendly, even when the restaurant is packed and there is a queue waiting for take-aways. The food has never disappointed and we recommend the Fish-head Curry, the Curry Roti and the Beef Rendang. A tip: there is parking at the back, with a short-cut to the restaurant through the kitchen! Second tip: BOOK well in advance. Many Aucklanders have discovered the pleasures of the Sri Penang kitchen.
