As early as 11.15am. It was a very peaceful meal to have it here. Great value for the amount you get. Definitely will dine in here again rather than order online.

1st time trying, and i will say i regret not finding this store sooner. Kuey teow is the best one in sg. Nasi lemak was decent! They have kangkung squit too - childhood fav dish. And lala was pretty good. And the green fruit drink- perfect! In love with this place

Beef Rendang Nasi Lemak- Beef cook just nice and portion also just enough. Penang Assam Laksa- Sourness just right. Tahu Goreng Penang Style- Portion just nice. Penang Cendol- Sweetness and portion just nice.

Food is served hot & quicky. Service is attentive & prompt! Kudos to the ladies on the floor. Chendol is traditional but too sweet. Probably lesser brown sugar will be more balanced and enjoyable.

We recently had a delightful dining experience at Penang Culture. The Penang char kway teow, Penang asam laksa, Penang nasi lemak, and Penang kway teow soup were all fantastic. The flavors were authentic, the service was exceptional, and the ambiance transported us to the vibrant streets of Penang. A must-visit for anyone craving a taste of Malaysia's culinary delights!

Very disappointed with the standard of food and kitchen processes. We arrived at 11.10am with almost no patrons, we were the third table. Our food came in drips and drapes, and it was cold/slightly warm when it arrived. Our Penang kway teow came only at 11.45am despite ordering at 11.15am. The next table ordered the same Kway Teow at 11.30am, and our kway teow came with them at 11.45am. So we suspect that they only started cooking when more orders are filled. To make things worse. We order without cockles and it came with cockles. To all allergic people, please check your food here. Service staff was prompt and the ambiance is nice. But will not return for the food.

Totally loved everything that I ordered in Penang Culture. I will definitely be back for that Beef Rendang and premium Nasi Lemak 🌶️

Quite a decent Nasi Lemak for $10.10 nett. Think tumeric leaves are used in the vegetable curry so there is a special aroma. Chicken wing is freshly fried crispy and sambal peanuts are crunchy. Not bad !

Came here after experienced the great food at penang culture @Changi. Food is great as expected :) we spent $126 for 2 adults+2 pre-teens. - Salted egg prawn: great! will order again. - Satay: great! Will order again. - penang rice: good. May order again. - sweet sour fried chicken rice: good. - fishball noodle: ok. - four heavenly veg: taste strong. Authentic stick beans (petai) strong farts after that. 😂 - chendol is great, altho kids prefer ice kachang. - drinks: slightly too sweet. Recommended place. Minus some point on service below: - after we were close at finishing the food, we requested for the server to clean the table for the desserts. Server acknowledged but didn do anything for the next ~10 mins. Only after we requested for the second time did they clear the table.

First time here. Came to this place at 6ish and order receipt shows 6.27pm. Place is about 50-60% full. Order their some "signature" dishes and promo dishes and a kids meal. At 7pm, we are only served 1 promo dish and the kids meal. Service is slow and quality of food so far is underwhelming. Asked a few times and still cannot tell us what is happening with other dishes. Decided to walk away and paid for whatever that was just served. Will not return. Food (whatever that is served) is nothing like photos and quality is not worth its price. Service is bad and likely due to shortage of manpower. If the place is only 50% full and we order normal common dishes, we were kinda expecting faster service.

The food generally is not bad The only problem is they seems understaff and we were not really well attended Worth a try if missing the Penany CKT

Good food, though the asam fish is little bit too sour for my taste. Also, as they have acquired Halal Certification, they cannot keep things for you, e.g. help to keep your bday cake to be served later. However, they still kind enough to let you eat there, and passed some cutleries and lighter

Had the all day combo deal that cost $38++. Given the increasing cost, this is quite a good deal for 4 dishes + 2 rice. Food was good, service was prompt and pleasant. Will come again.

First time trying the branch here in Compass One. Together with our parents, we had a great dining experience. They were very satisfied with the quality and taste of the food. Pricing is reasonable too.

We ordered char keoy teow and asam laksa. It is very nice. The cendol is not very good as too lemak (milky).

Didn't took the main dish Penang Kway Teow photos, which was good, but the highlight unexpectedly was this Penang Iced Kopi O'!! The best in Sg you can find, haven't had the taste since I was in Penang. The service, was greatly anticipated by a Chinese girl who proactively offered me condiments to go along with the noodles, think she prepared the coffee and served straight to me too! She's a gem! Kudos, and keep it up!!

Kids friendly and got variety of Malaysian cuisine. The price are competitive and abit cheaper but quality really not as I expected The white coffee was abit diluted as compare to other restuarants focus on Malaysian dishes / drinks. Lasi lemak rice wasn't as nicely cooked as don't really have coconut favour. Penang kway teow is super oily and doesnt have much favour. we tried their assam fish head and curry fish head ($29.90 each) which take quite awhile to prepare was not as tender as I expected. Not sure if because the fish head used was smaller & they cooked too long or just the type of fish they used for this dish. Most of other dishes we ordered was average but best dishes I think will be the salted egg squid & mentaiko ngoh hiang.

The restaurant is split into 2. One side is the Penang Culture, the other is a Ramen. This, the seatings are split into half (limited). The food took a while to be served. Overall all dishes were decent. Tahu Goreng could come with a little more gravy. Salted Egg You Tiao was good. Worth the try.

Been dining in at Compass One branch for many years since 2016, food is always nice and consistent taste. Service ok and improving. Clean and cozy place to sit

The assam curry fishhead was good! The gravy with rice is perfect. The portion was rather generous as well. Overall the portion of the dishes are slightly huge except the Grilled Platter. Salted egg chicken was good as well.. crispy and the salt egg sauce was just nice.. The place is newly renovated, a pretty small space, recommend to skip meal hours or make a reservation if possible.

I recently had the pleasure of dining at Penang Culture's new outlet in Compass One, Sengkang. The restaurant's new look and feel is a beautiful representation of Penang's gastronomy, with a modern twist that pays homage to the traditional zi char concept. The menu features a range of innovative and delicious dishes, including the White Kopi Chicken, which is a must-try. 👍🏻😋😋 The Salted Egg Squid You Tiao and Penang Fish Skin Rojak were also standout dishes. The new dishes, such as Stir Fry Royale Chives with Fried Hae Pi and Omelette Prawn, added a refreshing twist to the traditional Penang flavors. The Mango Pomelo dessert was a sweet and refreshing ending to the meal, while the Ampla Juice offered a tangy and refreshing beverage option. 👍🏻😋😋 Overall, I highly recommend Penang Culture's new outlet in Compass One for its unique blend of traditional Penang flavors and modern twists. The commitment to preserving Penang's cultural heritage through their cuisine is evident in every dish. 🤩🤩

Sad they took out the lemon chicken from the menu, it was my favourite but now they have the kopi chicken which is my new favourite now. The coffee was not too overpowering and when eaten with rice, it is really a nice balance. However, the only downside is that each main is more than $10, which is rather expensive. Everything in this picture costed $50+. Still would recommend trying

Food portions have reduced from my last visit on 21 June. The restaurant also downsized due to additional Woke Ramen stall opened beside it. Their food tasted nice but not as good as before. The menu items also reduced in variety too. Not enough crew to take order, serve and do payment. Not sure if I will go back again.

Amazing service by all the lovely male staff who made us feel so welcome. The local food was extra delicious because of that! Loved the clay pot tofu. Mantis shrimp was ok. Chendol was as delicious as always!
