    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.

    A pretty decent beef rendang. My Singaporean friend took me as it's her go to for comfort food. Very reasonably priced, they also have teh tarik, samba, and good laksa. I'd definitely come back

    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.

    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.

    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 ;)

    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.

  • Shay M.
    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.

    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.

  • 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
    As this kitchen produces utterly delicious and great value Malaysian cuisine, it is also capable of serving up some shamefully ersatz rubbish. Metro gave it 2 out of 5 Stars. Read more · September 10, 2010

    The cendol has tooooo much gula Melaka it overpowers everything else :( but the sago gula Melaka is great because of the balance of tasteless sago and sweet gula ^^

    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.

  • 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
  • Jonathan C.
    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.
    Jonathan Choo · October 29, 2014
  • Charmain L.
    Great for sambal Nonya food/curries, and some others like Cha Kway Teow, but Mee Pok is abysmal, and Chicken Rice nothing like it should be.
    Charmain Lee · January 1, 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.
    Don · October 21, 2011
  • Fu S.
    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
  • Sarah W.
    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
  • Soha L.
    The food here used to be good, but it wasn't this time. Not recommended for Malaysians who can taste the difference. The service however was efficient.

  • Hani A.
    Ordered chili crab, assam fish and plain rice to share w 3 people and its more than enough! Big portion and delicious!

    If you know what REAL nasi lemak tastes like, don't order it here! Nothing like the real thing at all. See pic for evidence!
    Yee Hung Lim · June 14, 2011

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

    teh tarik, roti, and nasi lemak not as cheap as hawker markets in Singapore but pretty good food for London
    D Stewart · October 24, 2014
  • Denise K.
    I really enjoy Ipoh Hor Fun at this restaurant! The chicken rice, fried vermicilli, teh tarik and char kuey teow

    Missing Singaporean or Malaysian food? This is the place to satisfy your craving for home town dishes! Thumbs up!

    Perhaps the closest to food back home. Variety choices, big portion, reasonable. Value for money!

  • Vul F.
    I'd avoid the nasi goreng due to the blandness taste of the rice..chicken satay and keropok was ok I guess
    Vul Fadli · March 16, 2014

    So surprised this is getting mixed reviews we had fantastic food here which looked amazing & the place was packed.

    Oh chien( fried oyster with egg) is really good. Other things not as good as C&R.

    As a Malaysian Malay n love Chinese Malaysian food, try the Char Kuey Teow n Chicken Rice. Halal too
    Khairul Anuar · September 19, 2010

    Hainanese chicken rice is good too the chili paste is legit with the ginger paste yass

    Beef Rendang is delicious, as is Roti. Staff do need a lot of 'reminding'...

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

    It's not bad, and fairly authentic, though I have had better in other restaurants with more variety. This place is quite affordable though.
    Charmain Lee · October 11, 2010
  • Mehtab L.
    The food is quite good but the shrimp dish in the 'hot' section in the back if the menu was very small.
    Mehtab Labib · November 2, 2013
  • Ashton M.
    Best place for Malay desserts in the area in my opinion. Find most of the food OK though not amazing
    Ashton McGregor · October 10, 2010
  • Yu-Mei
    Hits: Gado-gado and nasi lemak. Chicken rice and beef rendang are not bad too.

    The Malaysian curry and sambals here are the business. Nice and spicy too.

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