    The coconut pudding is great for coconut lovers. Huge amount & the meat was thick & refreshing so save room at the end. Get their roti telur as an appetizer.

    You'll have to trek north of Canal to find Nyonya, but it's worth twice the walk. Best Malaysian in Chinatown by a long shot, and one of very few to serve fresh coconut water straight from the source.

    Solid Singaporean food in Soho. Get the roti prata, Hokkien char mee, prawn mee, chicken rice, and wash it all down with a Tiger Beer.

    As everyone says, Roti is amazing. Prawn Mee was meh (and I like seafood). Squid appetizer (like 5th one down) was actually really good ! Sweet and savory. As was Beef Rendang. Cash only.

    Excellent Roti Canai and Clay pot chicken. The prawn Mee is also awesome. For those that do not like seafood broth, avoid this dish. You can request them to also charge your smartphones.

    Roti Canai! Beef Rendang! Coconut Rice! Great tasting Malaysian food at reasonable prices. If there’s a line outside, it’s worth the wait. Cash is king! Stop by an ATM before eating here.

    I've *finally* found a decent roti in NYC -- rich and buttery, flaky but stretchy! The mee goreng was not bad either, so I'd happily recommend this place to any visitors from south Asia / Oceania

    Pretty good malay food. Tried the ginger duck and the shrimp with eggplant. Duck was super soft and with a nice texture. Not much shrimp with the eggplant, but it was tasty.

    A variety of Malaysian and other Asian-inspired dishes are served at Nyonya, such as the Hainanese Chicken, Roti Canai, and an excellent Curry Noodle Soup.

    Quite possibly in my list of top 10 fave NYC restaurants. My go to dishes are Hainese chicken over rice (white meat only), Seafood Tom Yum noodle soup and Salted Fish with Chinese broccoli.

    The food here is so, so good. Plenty of menu items to choose from. Recommended: spicy seafood fried rice, Haianese chicken, and to start, the roti canai.

    Try our favorite version of beef rendang. The tender beef is simmered low & slow in a fragrant mixture of clove, cinnamon, lemongrass & coconut milk. It’s one of our #100best dishes & drinks of 2011. Read more

    Yum! Roti canai, Malaysian iced coffee is a must. If you come with a group, order full size hainanese chicken with chicken broth rice as a side!

    Been coming here for years and the roti canai is still my favorite thing ever. My other go to dish is asam laksa but that's an acquired taste. Cash only

    Roti Canai, Hainanese Chicken with Chicken Rice and Kang Kung Belacan to hit all flavors and food groups. Stays true to what I grew up eating in Singapore.

    I think this one is better than its sister restaurant in Brooklyn. Pretty cheap, good Malaysian food. I really like the Hainanese chicken. :) Saigon is also across the street!

    Beef curry ($6.75) is just a smaller portion of the beef rendang ($15) - better for a solo diner. Add a roti to round out the meal.

    Throughout the years, they've become more accommodating to vegetarians. Amazing dishes! Get the ABC and hunt for the palm seeds.

    As close to authentic south East Asian food as possible in New York City, make sure you get beef rendang and kangkong belachan ✌🏼️

    Amazing Malaysian! The curry stews could double for Laksa. Very close to the real deal. (Yes, I've been to Malaysia.)

    This place rocks my socks. Fresh coconut. Food is delicious. Appetizers are a must. I pretty much tried them all. And beef rendang is bomb.

    Hainanese chicken rice! Yayyyyy also get a fresh whole coconut. When you're dine drinking theyll chop it up and you can eat the meat inside as after meal dessert.

    Comes close to straits style food. Spiciness is tuned to the American palate though so 0.5/10 for Singaporeans/Malaysians.

    Every dish here is incredibly delicious, but the roti canai, char kway teow noodles, and the crispy golden squid are essential eating!!!!!

    Mee Siam without the shrimp is a great vegetarian option. Very tasty and a decent level of spicyness.

    A preferred lunch spot among Purpose staff. Explore beyond the lunch specials and don't let them convince you anything is too exotic for non-Asian taste buds!

    Good spot to satisfy that Malaysian food craving. Definitely get the roti canai and beef rendang.
