    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.

    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.

    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

    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.

    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.

    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.

    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.

    It’s a sister restaurant of Penang. Delicious Malaysian food. Must SIZZLING NYONYA TOFU - Bean curd egg with minced pork, shrimp, Chinese mushroom, Served in Chef's special sauce – So good…

    It's probably one of the only places you can get Malaysian/Singaporean type cooking here in NYC. It's decent for what you can find here in NY metro area, but sure doesn't compare to the real thing.

    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.

    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!

    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.

    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.

    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.

    The food is average, at best decent. The stir fried pearl noodle is good. However, I always feel like the staff here have bad attitude. The food also takes quite a while.

    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

    So many good things here. Oh!!! Get: roti canai, Malaysian ice tea or ice coffee, young tofu, abc... This place never disappoints and price is also good. :)

    This place is not as good as it was when it was in the location across the street. It has adjusted more for the touristy palate. Although the Roti is still decent.

    My staple meal here is a fresh watermelon juice, roti canai, their kang kung w/ shrimp paste, Nyonya House Special jumbo prawns & Hainanese chicken w/ rice.

    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!

    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

    DO NOT GET THAT COLD CHICKEN EVERYONE IS RAVING ABOUT. I REPEAT, DO NOT ORDER THE COLD CHICKEN THEY ARE SUPPOSED TO BE FAMOUS FOR. Roti Canai was great, though!

    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!

    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.

    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.

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

    Great food, great price, and its a perfect spot to try something new and tasty. The shrimp puff was definitely delicious.
  • Edmund B.
    As close to authentic south East Asian food as possible in New York City, make sure you get beef rendang and kangkong belachan ✌🏼️

    Don't be afraid to get the ffried squid tentacles. It is DELICIOUS! And great with Singha beer. The Hiainese chicken is also a must try.

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

    Curry Mee (with chicken instead of tofu) is my favorite dish here. It's super good. The coconut dessert is awesome too.

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

    :D I enjoyed this place! I made a video review if you would like to see the food for yourself: https://youtu.be/pw7uPn24nFY?list=PL-Dq_PEJ5z4QMeYQyqQPpXzeIFgtXaRbI

    Obviously, get a fresh young coconut to go with yo' Malaysian meal. Favorites = homemade roti, mango chicken, and spare ribs.

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

    They do a delicious baby oyster omelet and the Nasi Lemak is one of the better versions in town. - Inspector

    tastes pretty good, but a bit overrated/priced. seems petty to charge extra for rice on dishes always served with rice elsewhere

    Skip the Pad Thai. Go for the Fried Pearl Noodles instead. Also best Hainanese chicken in Chinatown!

    Try the Sotong With Kangkung - Malaysian style squid on a bed of steamed water spinach, with peanut sauce.
