Been to this place a couple of times. It is run by a Malaysian husband and wife. The wife is very friendly, but the husband's attitude is just downright bad. Very rude and impatient. The food on the other hand is good, but I would say the price is not worth the portion of food. Rather pricey considering the little... More

Popped in for lunch last week and ordered the chefs combo along with a satay lunchbox. Absolutely brilliant. Great sushi aswell as satay lunchbox which is huge in size for the money you pay. Prepared very fast and eaten just as quick. Old town kitchen may not look too appealing from the outside but don't let this put you off,... More

Some of the best sushi I have ever had. After a recent menu change, a lot of the hot main dishes have been scrapped in favour of a more varied sushi selection. I originally thought this would be a mistake, but after ordering regularly over the last few months and being told that more and more dishes were unavailable, it... More

My girlfriend and I decided to order from here on Saturday. We ordered the 30£ set meal and we were more than impressed. The sushi ingredients were so fresh and made to absolute perfection. The chicken satay also tasted fresh and the peanut sauce was amazing. Easily the best sushi I have ever tasted in my life, if not the... More

Come here for the food, not the decor. We've never had takeaway from here, only eaten in (about 6 times) and the food has been stunning each time. We've eaten all over the world, in 'fine dining' restaurants and street stalls, and the food here is just superb. Lovingly prepared, with the freshest ingredients. We absolutely love the salmon sashimi... More

Moved away from Southampton in September of this year. I have to write something on here about Oldtown as I went there as often as I could whilst living for 3 years close by to the central train station. Firstly I'll have to agree with the last Post, Billy has the phone etiquette of a late night London cab firm,... More

Me and my girlfriend decided to try something new and ordered from here. When ringing to place the order the man on the other end of the phone had the worst customer communication skills I have ever encountered. He was rude, impatient and intolerant. After waiting an hour and a half for the order to arrive, my girlfriends chicken tori... More

Bill is the best, super hard working guy. Always uses the freshest fish for the sushi u can just taste it, wipes the floor with yo sushi and zen in my eyes. Awesome malaysian dishes too, very very moorish chicken satay and mee goreng is brilliant with a perfectly fried egg in the middle. The place is not much to... More

At first I was very impressed with this small and rustic takeaway outlet in Southampton. It was low-key and reminded both myself and fiance of street stalls in Thailand in how it was presented and delivered. However, inside was very sterile and didn't make well for somewhere to sit down and eat, and whilst I appreciate it's a takeaway, there... More

This is a great little authentic Malaysian cafe/takeaway, it looks basic from the outside which is part of the appeal. It's all about the food for me! The owner is lovely, really friendly and accommodating. The dishes are all freshly made in front of you and you can take the food upstairs to eat in the cafe part. The sushi... More
