I ordered the house special which is a mango tofu dish, if you're looking for something different try it. My sister ordered the golden tofu which is a deep-fried tofu with a delicious salty lime juice finish. I highly recommend this dish. The food is very very affordable and plentiful.

One of my favorite places to take vegetarian friends. Lots of the entrees can be made with tofu. The Mango tofu is a meal I always go back for.

I have been going to Peninsula Malaysian Cuisine restaurant on Eat Street for years. It consistently delivers high quality Asian fusion (a blend of Thai, Vietnamese, and other countries in that region) food in an informal yet tasteful atmosphere. The menu is voluminous and you could eat here once a week and take years to get through it all. The... More

My Indian friends brought me here because, in their view, it's good Malaysian food. We ordered a bunch of appetizers and the mango chicken (sub chicken for the mango shrimp dish) and it was all phenom. Will definitely be back!

Good ambient family oriented place, friendly staff who help in menu choices fresh coconut water with succulent pulp lamb shank was good so also chilly chicken kids meals were good too. Value for money surely worth a second visit

I am familiar with Malaysian cuisine and I know, it is not easy to find Malaysian or its closer neighbor, Indonesian restaurant in Minneapolis. Some of Malaysian food are similar to Indonesian such as nasi goreng, rendang, satay, laksa etc. We ordered nasi lemak but to be honest, we had far better taste of nasi lemak than the one served...

I know Malaysian food well so it is fun to find a restaurant because there aren't many. Usually run by Chinese but do offer some traditional Malaysian dishes like Roti Chani and Beef Rendang. Roti was above average but Rending was not a good cut of beef and had a lot of fat. Seasoning was also not as good as... More

We wanted a nice steamed fish. They suggested the sea bass. What did we get... what looked like a chunk of fish reheated in a microwave. It had that exploded effect and the outside skin was all torn apart. In addition, it was basically tasteless. The belacan shrimp used to actually have some spiciness and that funky belacan flavor, but... More

We had lunch at this lovely restaurant a week or so ago and I was tempted by the lamb shanks, a special they were offering. It did not disappoint. The dish came piping hot, beautifully cooked in a curry sauce that was wonderfully flavorful and had just enough heat to be pleasing without overwhelming. Tender, tender tender!!! And just the...

This restaurant is on Eat Street, the 17 block dining district, and this was the only one we tried on Eat Street. I am a little biased, as I have always liked Malaysian food for that delightful amalgamation of malay,chinese and indian flavors to create something better than the sum. We had the lamb rendang that was very good, as... More
