One of my favorite restaurants at the Curve is Waroeng Penyet that serves the pretty unique ayam penyet (flattened fried chicken) that was completely new to me only slightly over a year ago. I have been there quite a few times since but always loath the idea of having to brace the traffic and having to pay parking to get my favorite Indonesian food.

So when I spotted this place on the way home after a round of hitting golf balls everywhere at the Sunway driving range, I immediately suggest to Horng that we should just have our dinner there.

Ayam Penyet AP at Sunway Mentari
clean and air conditioned interior

The set up of Ayam Penyet AP is just a notch above your normal kopitiam. There are a few tables alfresco style for those who might want to have puff after meal, and also plenty of tables for those who prefer air conditioning. The restaurant is clean and comfortable tho there isn’t any effort being put in interior decoration.

The menu here is a bit more extensive compared to Waroeng Penyet, other than the standard Ayam penyet, they have beef, cat fish, prawn, bakso (beef ball), mixed vegetable, and a few types soups too.

Ayam Penyet AP at Sunway Mentari
ayam penyet, ikan penyet (keli), and terung penyet

We ordered ayam penyet, lele penyet (keli, cat fish), and terong penyet (eggplant) to go with two rice for dinner.

The ayam penyet (I had the drumstick) was just as tasty as their counterpart at the Curve. Crispy, flavorful, and with that very addictive hot sambal. I also like the fact that they give more crispy bits.

The deep fried cat fish too was not bad in its own, very aromatic and soft in texture. And as a person who loves eggplant, I absolutely adore the terung penyet. The crispy bits and sambal works very well with the contrasting soft texture of fried eggplant. Very delicious.

satisfying dinner

Ayam penyet was priced at RM 7 (already the most expensive item in their menu!), the fish was RM 6.50, and eggplant only RM 2.50. Two plates of rice at RM 1.20 each and you have a very satisfying dinner for way less than RM 20.00!

I am sure this is one of the places I would visit repeatedly.

  31. Jolene,
    Yah I think they have an outlet there. 😀

    Simon Seow,
    Ohh I’m waiting!

  32. looks tasty

  33. Looks good, an affordable indonesian cuisine. How is it compare to the one in Curve?

  34. mknace,
    It is pretty nice.

    Big Boys Oven,
    This place feels a bit more “authentic” and of course, quite a bit cheaper. 😀

  35. why they named it penyet??

    but it looks damn nice…is it goreng atau bakar atau apa apa??

  36. hitomi,
    penyet is flattened in indonesian. 😀

  37. just went last nite for dinner,….did u notice the amount of flies there? O_O
    alot leh….so pesky

  38. tried it already… at least in my opinion, nowhere near as good or tasty as the one at the Curve.

    I think the one at the Curve has more variety too as they have grilled items like satay and grilled fish which are absent from this joint. Everything here is either fried or souped :p

  39. anna,
    Ooo did you sit outside?

    Ahhh, but they have eggplant! I like eggplant! 😛

  40. I like eggplant too!

    but I’m not gonna go all the way there just for eggplant! lol

    for some reason that just sounded corny

  41. Enoch,
    Hahhaa, but it’s nice!

  42. wah now sell ayam penyet also need AP

  43. Paul Tan,
    Hahhaa yah these days! never know!

  44. hi guys..
    have u try Ria Ayam Penyet?
    in that area too, but facing sunway pyramid..
    just’s so delicious..
    I’m a reguler consumer there:)

  45. elmyra,
    Ahh, haven’t tried that one, perhaps one of these days. 🙂

  46. […] I went on ahead. Luckily I had the GPS coordinates for Ayam Penyet-AP I got from KY Speak’s website, which pointed me to the wrong building block of the place. Duh! Anyway, AT managed to find the […]

  47. me also agree with elmyra,
    so far ”ayam penyet ria” is the best in town =D

  48. susan,
    Will give that a go when I have a chance, thanks. 😀

  49. iniemailgue

    Elmyra is correct, before AP was better then Ria, but since AP open 4 branches, their food quality went down the hill, not as good as before. Seems like the cook so many chicken and use less seasoning. All their cooking is centralized at sunway mentari, other branches just get the chicken and fry it.

  50. iniemailgue,
    So i suppose the AP at Mentari will still be ok?

  51. iniemailgue


    Depends on who is cooking that day, seriously, If the indonesian cook back to indonesia, then the taste will be off also. Last year, during the raya, I went to their first outlet in SS 15, the sambal taste was off, I ask the cashier, she said, Yes….we know….because the indonesian cook went back for raya. hahahaha…..

  52. iniemailgue,
    Hahah interesting, thanks for the tips!

  53. Dato Dereck Stephen

    very bad service workers there sit down, laugh laud, need to call for menu or bill then they move. I like the expensive item bawal fish and many other on the last food page alwayz dnt have !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! why????????? went there 6 times coz my wife like to eat there but alwayz dissapointed wen ordering……..!! very terrible service and place smelly like no aircon or rubbish bad smell…… something or you will see more comments on other blog !!! thanks.

    • Dato Dereck: I think you’re right, service is not exactly great at all, and sadly that is true for most places around here.

  54. Asri Leon

    change the manager/supervisor if can all the workers there tak boleh pakai !!! local oso same foreign pun sama.

  55. I had my first try today at Festival City, Setapak – Ayam Penyet and Ayam Masak Habang. The meat was dry and the taste was bland too. 🙁
