Penang Place Restaurant

Located in the heart of Singapore, Penang Place has been serving up authentic, quality & affordable Penang food with no pork or lard, for 20 years! Cooked by 7 dedicated Penang Chefs, our main draw is the self-serviced Buffet which features favourites such as Penang Char Kway Teow, Assam Laksa, Hokkien Mee Noodle Soup, Beef Rendang, Kueh Kuehs, Chendol and much more.

The impressive 350 seater restaurant also includes VIP rooms for more privacy. Order from our wide selection of wines from various parts of the world to complement your dining experience. A La Carte options are also available for those with limited time or appetite. We bring our Penang Buffet to you with our Catering services for those special events. Delivery and self-collection services are available upon request.

Welcome to Penang Place

Hi, my name is Paul Ooi and together with my wife, Hannah, we seek to bring you the authentic flavours of Penang cuisine. I was born an hour’s drive away from Penang Island and grew up in a Nonya family where I remember both my grandmothers wearing sarong kebayas and always cooking up and bringing me to taste food that was always of high quality.

I’ve been blessed to have chefs that are from Penang, with some of them having worked with me for more than 30 years.

We welcome you and promise to do our best to ensure that you have a delightful experience! Thank you for coming to Penang Place. We hope to see you, your relatives and friends here often.


We bring you the authentic flavours of Penang cooked by our Penang chefs, where the taste of home is in their hearts.

Some of the evergreen Penang favourites that we serve are:
Penang Char Kway Teow, Penang Laksa, Jiu Hu Eng Chai, Lobak, Kueh Pie Tee, Chicken Satay, Assorted Kueh Kuehs.. and many more!

No Pork, No Lard

We serve healthy Penang food cooked without lard. This is both for health reasons and to also ensure that our Muslim friends can enjoy our food at our restaurant or during our catering services, as well. Substitutes for pork have been ingeniously incorporated. For instance, chicken and yam are used in Lorbak, a Penang sausage served with a sweet tangy sauce, to capture the authentic textures and flavours of Lorbak. We also serve vegetarian food, making our restaurant an inclusive dining environment for everyone, no matter what your dietary requirements may be.
