A trendy new fusion restaurant has caught the eye of the who’s who in Sydney’s west with a TikTok sensation among the special few to enjoy the authentic Asian street food of P’Nut Street Noodles.
A trendy new fusion restaurant has caught the eye of the who’s who in Sydney’s west with the Penrith Press spotting many familiar faces at the recent launch including a federal MP and popular TikTok star.
“The secret with our recipes come from the sauces that are made from scratch from recipes that chef Nut learnt with his grandmother coming from a food stall in Thailand,” general manager Petra Orrenius said.
“Chef Nut later met with a Michelin star chef Chumpol Jangprai so we can say that our sauces are where the street and Michelin star meet. Some of the sauces have up to 15 or 17 ingredients.”
“We are the first and only restaurant in Australia to use authentic, made-from-scratch sauce bases directly from Thailand,” he said.
“The combination of authentic sauces and fresh, locally sourced Aussie produce creates meals that are full of flavour.”
Aside from the mouth-watering food and star-studded company, the restaurant is also home to another eye-catching attraction being a traditional Tuktuk fitted with a working horn.

Situated in a popular Batt Street complex, the restaurant finds itself in the centre of a family friendly area with Zone Bowling and Flipout Penrith just metres away.
“We’ve been trying to get into Penrith for quite a long time since we’ve had Penrith patrons asking us when we’d be coming at our other stores in Rouse Hill and Northwest,” Ms Orrenius said.
“We’re hoping with our family friendly concept and this great location that P’Nut really takes off here in Penrith.”
TikTok star Christine Abadir was spotted at the launch and gave the food rave reviews.
“The food is immaculate, it tastes amazing. I love how there’s peanuts in every single dish and we’ve heard there about 15 to 25 different spices in the food,” the TikTok starlet said.

Globetrotting foodies, Kat and Alex, from Food Inbox also made an appearance at the launch.
“We’ve had a really great time and it’s been so amazing. The food is yummy and really fresh. The servings are massive, we can’t complain at all,” Kat said.

“As the federal member for Lindsay it’s always great to have new restaurants coming in, particularly after all that we’ve been through in lockdown,” Ms McIntosh said.
“It’s really great to see Chef Nut do his thing so I invite everyone in our community to head on down and give this great new local restaurant a go.”
Chef Nut will be set up in the Penrith location for the next two months before he rotates to another P’Nut restaurant so make sure you get a trip down before then.
