Penny’s Noodle shop is a place where your taste buds will dance. The food is outstanding, the decor is chic, and the customer service is top notch.

At Penny’s Noodle shop it just isn’t noodles, it’s pretty much anything Thai related. They have soups, rice platters, and salads. I ordered the Pad Thai. Pad Thai is noodles that are stir-fried with vegetables and any choice meat. With the Pad Thai, I also ordered some spring rolls. Spring rolls are much like egg rolls except it doesn’t consist of meat. The spring rolls are to die for! The amount of food provided is huge! There will definitely be a doggy taken home. The amount of food given is so worth the price.

The decor at Penny’s is so elegant yet it has a homey feel to it. Plastered on the walls are beautiful paintings of nature and different incorporations of the Thai culture. It makes you feel like you are sitting directly in Thailand.

The customer service is amazing! They are so attentive and are always there even before you know you need something. They would always check up and make sure everything is up to your standards. Right when you walk in you are welcomed with a warm smile and kind welcoming.

One said that the food at Penny’s was once good and will never be as good as it was before. This statement is false because no matter how many times you go to Penny’s the food is always fresh and warm, the decor is always eye catching, and the customer service is fantastic! If you’re looking for a place that includes all three of these qualities, Penny’s is the place to be.
