My SO and I enjoyed Sun penang as our date night one evening. We got three different types of dumplings, one soup each and fried calamari. The fried calamari wasn't anything to write home about although the batter coating was light, fluffy and salty which...More

We had a very good time at Sun Penang. Not a big fan of Chinese cuisine, but I thought the dishes we chose had lots of flavor and were very well done. We ordered a variety of dumplings as well as entrees with different proteins....More

The regular Chinese food is a little better than average, but you can step it up by asking for the "Tea Garden egg roll." The Tea Garden was an established Pittsburgh Chinese restaurant back in the Cantonese restaurant days, but had the world's best egg...More

We ordered food for takeout. They delivered it on time. It was all in one bag so that was nice. A lot of the food looked microwaved. We got the teriyaki, pork soup dumplings, Thai iced tea, a coke, egg drop soup and rice and...More

All dimsums are great. You may be there during your brunch and have some dimsum. Shrimp shumei is good, as well as beancurd skin roll. If you have some room left, try Hainanese chicken with yellow rice. Delish!

We decided to try this restaurant because of their extensive dim sum menu. You order from the menu and they bring out the dishes one or two at a time, so that there's always food on the table. I miss the dim sum restaurants in...More

This place was one of few restaurants that reportedly serves dim sum. It is located on Forbes Avenue just east of Murray, and there is a convenient parking place around the corner. The name indicates the restaurant serves Malaysian food, but we came on Sunday...More
