Excellent value for the money

We came out of a matinee show at the nearby FM arena and walked up to where we had parked the car. Given the queue at the pay station we decided to go for a walk and have a drink. When we spotted this restaurant. We went in just after 5pm and were the only people in there. Not to... read more

Food is great, service is great. This was a wonderful experience, a really nice restaurant that is well worth a visit. Even though we arrived quite late on a Saturday night, the staff and service was great, and the Nasi Goreng was best I have had in a long long time.

Being downstairs on a warm evening is not a great start but the food was quite good. I would have preferred more spice, apart from the pickle with prawn crackers it was all a bit tame.

Went last night for early evening menu. The food was absolutely delicious, the service was both quick and friendly and it was excellent value, given the good sized portions.

The food is very good but the service is the reason to go to this restaurant. The manager came over and spent a good ten minutes discussing Malaysia with one of my housemates who is going there next year. He advised us on where was noisy and quiet to sit in the restaurant and came over to make sure everything... More

This was our second visit to Nada Budaya, albeit the first was such a long time ago, that neither me nor my partner could really recall the experience. In hindsight, there was probably a good reason for this. The place itself is well situated, in the basement of a beautiful building on the outskirts of trendy Hockley. Unfortunately, despite this...

Came in for the 2 course weekend lunch special for £8 and it was delicious! Portions were good for lunch and everything was very flavourful. Our waitress was very knowledgeable and patient in explaining the menu choices to us, letting us know the sambal would be quite spicy. We went for it anyway and really enjoyed every dish. Atmosphere is... More

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
