Fans who used to make the long trek to their Former Jurong address will be thrilled with their convenient location at Fusionopolis. Chefs from Penang dish up the best Penang Char Kway Teow in town with a heady wok hei. No pork or lard used in dishes.
The penang food buffet spread at Penang Place includes beef rendang, assam fish, assam prawns, nasi lemak, lor bak, honey chicken, belachan chicken, spring roll, assam laksa, prawn noodle soup, rojak and more.
Desert includes Kueh, ice kacang mango pudding.
It was crowded on weekday lunch. The penang char kway tiao is good and they top up small portions regularly on the buffet table each time, I guess their chef prepare small portion each time to keep up to standard instead of "mass frying" larger portions.

I took an international business guest to Penang Place for a dinner. This was my second time here (I was brought here for dinner last year). My overall impression with the food here is okay, though far from special (certainly, far below places like Daisy's Kitchen along West Coast Rd). Beef rendang and beef kwe tiao tasted fine, but there were some dishes that I thought wasn't well-cooked.
I'm rather disappointed with the service though since some of the staff was extremely rude. When we were paying for our meal, we changed our mind to pay with visa instead of cash (before any receipt was printed). The reception staff was so irritated by this and told us along the line of "I already press cash here on my screen. It is troublesome for me to change it". Both my guest and I were shocked at this treatment and had to apologise to him that we needed the receipt for a reimbursement. In retrospect, it was not that difficult for him to change this - he had to press a few buttons. Is it not worthwhile to press a few buttons and keep your customers happy? The owner of the restaurant would do well if they reassess their staff and improve their service quality if they want to keep their customers.
I didn't opt for buffet this time round as I didn't want to gorge senseless (again). Going ala carte, i ordered:
1) Fried Rice - this was for my daughter who doesn't know how to appreciate the other dishes. Truth be told, the rice was fried fragrantly and the chicken wing was beautifully seasoned & fried.
2) Penang Prawn Mee - I had mine with thick bee hoon. I love the fresh prawns and the thick flavourful soup! Add chilli flakes for kicks and vola! Magic in a bowl!
3) Char Kuay Tiao - this is the bomb! I honestly feel their char kuay tiao can rival many hawker ones out there. Of course theirs is more expensive but they do serve theirs with generous and fresh ingredients.
If I am younger, I would have conquered their buffet in style but now, I think ala carte is more my ability. Will return again.
