    As a Malaysian, I'm quite picky when it comes to Malaysian food served in other countries. Rasa passed with flying colors—and then some. It's a little pricey but worth it. Ambiance is intimately quiet

    Try the soft shell crab in massaman curry - they can make it spicy and it comes in a plentiful bowl, fast service !

    Teh tarik (Malaysian milk tea) here is legit. Many will call this heresy but I think their char kuey teow is an ok approximation of the original, even though it uses chicken instead of pork broth/fat.

    There's some solid Malaysian dishes like laksa, but also some good hard-to-find specialties like candied squid and maggi mee.

    Amazing curry, among pretty much everything else. The staff is amazing and welcoming, the prices are good and the drinks are good too.

    Besides some traditional dishes like hainanese chicken, everything is great. Roti canai, chilli fried chicken, noodle dishes and soups too.

    The roti and the redang beef are fantastic. The tapioca and Malaysian tea are the perfect finish.

    When it's cold outside, ask for the warm Tamarind cider. It warms you up nicely.
