    Oh chien( fried oyster with egg) is really good. Other things no as good as C&R.

    Don't need to book whenever I go, there is always a table. Great food and huge servings!

    This feels like home

  • Delia L.

    Was better and cheaper than a Malaysian supper club I went to so I guess that makes it OK

    Good quality food and good portion. Efficient service as well!

    The laksa is beautifully presented but terribly disappointing. The soup is half decent, but it's a mystery why there are mint leaves included. They added nothing except a strange aftertaste.

    Can't get enough of the ladies fingers in sambal

    Authentic Malaysian food . Service is so so but at least you get some good value. Nasi Lemak and Penang Prawn are delighted, by London's standard.

    teh tarik, roti, and nasi lemak not as cheap as hawker markets in Singapore but pretty good food for London

    If you're a fan of morning glory (behave!) be prepared to pay the price! My friends adored the roti here and the chicken dishes are big and filling. Food comes out as its ready.

    Great food n reasonable priced. The ice kacang is to die for.

  • Nick S.

    Laska is very good. Spicy!!

    If you're craving noodles, do not order the Satay Bee Hoon ("special of the week"). It's just a plate of vermicelli noodles swimming in sweet satay sauce with hardly any seafood in it.

    Horrible service, workers are not polite & the food is overrated...

    I'd avoid the nasi goreng due to the blandness taste of the rice..chicken satay and keropok was ok I guess

    The curry laksa was good 👍 and the teh tarik.

    The food is quite good but the shrimp dish in the 'hot' section in the back if the menu was very small.

    Pearl tea is great!

    Nyonya Cuisine in London !!! How great ~ don't expect it taste like Malay style , it's Nyonya . c'mon

    Impatient staff and poor vegetarian food. They literally just pulled the meat out of dish.

    Bhavan Ramanathan · September 26, 2013

    Good Rendang Rice and Nasi Lemak. Good service. Don't expect too much. It's just nice, worth to come if you miss Malaysian food. Quite authentic :)

    Fu Sheng · September 25, 2013
  • Coileáin Ó.

    The nasi lemak here is more like chinese/baba nyonya style and not the malay style.

    Coileáin Ó Gharrain · September 24, 2013

    Upstairs and downstairs seating. Gets busy. Go the roti canai and tangy Assam fish curry = yum in your tum. Beware - the soya milk is freshly made so has a strong bean taste which some may not like.

    Amanda · August 30, 2013
  • Marina

    This place was packed. The portions are very generous. I had the chili crab and it was MASSIVE! Very tasty and really messy. Don't order it if you're having a business meeting or are on a date ;)

    The chicken rendang is really nice, and a decent portion. The nasi lemak though, not so much. Reminds me of Madam Kwan's with less taste and less sauce. Overall pretty good place though.

    Good food at a reasonable price! I'm no expert on Malay cuisine, but was nice and spicy (not too hot, just flavoured well) well presented plate. Very quick service, they are casual, not rude.

    Zero customer service. Minimum charge £6 per person. Rubbish!!

    Try the 'Curry Laksa' pretty good and filling.

    Dumpling soup and noodle dishes are great.

    Kangkong belacan is a tad bland. Ipoh hor fun is passable. Pearls in pearl milk tea is not fresh. The Char kuay teow on the other hand, is pretty good.

    Sarah Wasli · April 1, 2012
  • Nat T.

    Had the pandan pancake for desert. It was small and I was unimpressed by the flavour. I've uploaded a photo of it. It looks different to the pic in the menu.

    Nat Tee · January 29, 2012
  • Nat T.

    Roti & laksa ok. Hokkien Mee is terrible! All noodles with barely any meat. BAD service. Owner told staff to bring us the bill in Chinese and when it came I told them to take it away. I won't be back.

    Nat Tee · January 29, 2012
  • Sarah K.

    Love the sambal fish, char kuey teow and nasi lemak. Oh and the the tarik. (: manager of the restaurant is among the friendliest I've met so far.

    Sarah Kay · December 24, 2011
  • John L.

    Wayyyyyy too much oyster sauce in the seafood hor fun. Hokkien mee is okay.

    John L · November 27, 2011
  • Don

    Authentic tasting char kway teow and roti. Good lunchtime fix of Malaysian. Staff aren't rude, just nonchalant. I'll be back to try other dishes.
