Starters were good, they were slow to serve the main courses out, so some of the people at my table were finishing their main course before others had been served. My main course was barely warm when it arrived, so by the time I was...More

Friendly service but could have cooked the food myself, apart from the flat bread which was delicious and I would have no idea how to make.

The Penang Cottage Restaurant in Southgate serves modern Malaysian and Nyonya cuisine delivering the freshness of up to date oriental food to your table. Penang is famous throughout the Far East for its food, based on Nyonya traditions – the traditions of the first local Chinese immigrants to Malaya, who combined their original cuisine from South China with the cookery of the local Malay population. The Penang Cottage’s menu is based on the dishes served up in local family homes as well as those provided in the hawker markets throughout the city while, continuing the spirit of local modification, incorporating some Western influences. The menu has also incorporated some recent Chinese influence to provide a striking and balances choice.Signature dishes include Satay Chicken served with our homemade peanut sauce; aromatically spiced Nasi Lemak – a melting pot of chicken curry and fried anchovies with egg; Penang Assam Laksa and Penang Prawn Noodle.Situated very close to Southgate’s tube and bus stations, Penang Cottage Restaurant is an ideal location for dining with friends, families and colleagues alike. Whether it is for a light lunchtime bite or a relaxed evening dinner, the Penang Cottage extends a warm WELCOME TO ALL.
