Lovely Malaysian Food

Genuine Malaysian food, lovely service and a lovely room. It is a bit expensive, so more for a treat than everyday dining, but highly recommended, deserves to succeed

On our first visit, owner and his daughter greet us with a big smile. Knowing we're Malaysian from the north, owner brag about other Malaysian customer complaints that their 'Asam Laksa' tasted totally different. He stress that their Laksa is the Authentic Northern Laksa that's why they found it different. With hope and curiosity, I decided to give the laksa... More

This was our first visit to nada budaya but it will not be our last. The food was very tasty esp the rendang. The service was excellent. Had a very nice bottle of new zealand sauvignon which went well with the meal. This was value for money

We first visited visited shortly after opening and found the food to be of a good standard but the restaurant was a bit on the chilly side and a bit empty, which detracted from the atmosphere. However, our second visit did not disappoint and it felt as if they'd 'found their feet'. The place was much more lively and distinctly... More

I visited for a pre-theatre dinner with my partner and opted for the 2 courses for £12.50. The food was absolutely fantastic. Fresh, tasty and plentiful. The beef rendang was delightful and possibly one of the tastiest curries that I have ever eaten. I would not think twice about going back and can't believe it took me so long to... More

We had a very enjoyable early evening meal at this restaurant on a Friday evening. At 6 o'clock there were only on other table in use, when we left the restaurant had filled up. A good recommendation in itself. The food seemed to be genuine Malaysian style, not that I am an expert in Malaysian food. It was very tasty... More

They also deal with food allergies exceptionally well, (i am allergic to dairy) advising exactly what you can and can’t have and then at the end of the meal checking you feel ok and... More

We had been recommended this Malaysian cuisine restaurant in Nottingham and found a table for a late lunch on a Saturday. Great food, good service and a nice atmosphere. All our choices were good, that had Malaysian rice beer for drinks and desserts were also fine. Recommendable
