We visited last night and had a wonderful experience. The food was delicious and authentic (I've been to Malaysia!) and such good value too. Alan's service was impeccable and the wines are reasonably priced. We've just booked again for next week and can't wait!!

I don't really know much about Malaysian food, so we thought we'd avail ourselves of the lunch time deal and see what's happening. Found the service to be very friendly and quick, and the food was really tasty, a true bargain. I cannot comment on it's authenticity, but I know what I like and I liked that.

This was our first visit to Nada Budaya, and our first taste of Malaysian food. We visited with friends on a busy Saturday night in town. The staff were very friendly and offered us advice when required. Amongst our selection of dishes that we tried was chicken slow cooked in chilli, lemon grass and coconut and stir fried beef with...

I eat out quite a lot in Nottingham, but get tired of the same old places. After meeting friends on Saturday we decided to be a bit impulsive and headed for the lace market, and then just dropped by this place. It is down some beautifully tiled steps well worth a look just for these, and it looked quiet but... More

Well always eat over the road at a little cafe called Edens which we love. But we thought lets try something a little bit different for lunch so stepped over the street to Nada Budaya. Firstly they do a fantastic lunch menu that's very well priced indeed and not to be turned down. The entrance makes you think your stepping... More

The restaurant is situated right in the middle of Nottingham's entertainment area. in fact it is situated below the Brewdog Pub & surrounded by many other restaurants & pubs. We visited on a Saturday night, the restaurant was just starting to quiet down approximately half full, this was about 8:30, the service was rather slow, in fact the starters arrived... More

Recommended to us by a friend, this place is really lovely. The food is always excellent, with so much choice on the menu my partner and I have promised to try something new each time we go. (Although we CAN'T stop ordering the peanut sauce.) The surroundings are clean and very smart and the staff have always been charming. An... More

First visit after friend of a friend recommend. Did the earlybird option which is from 5-7pm. Four of us tried different starters and main courses. Loved everything. Freshly cooked. Level of spiciness adjusted for the customer. Every mouthful was a delight. Friendly and fast service and a relaxing atmosphere. Can't wait for a repeat visit.

We had eaten at a lot of Indian restaurants lately and wanted some spice and taste but a little different. This was a good alternative option. We were there on a Sunday evening and it was moderately busy. We all had vegetarian dishes and enjoyed what we had, there are several noodle and rice dishes and the vegetables were very... More

I went here with my friend Dilys for lunch on a Saturday and it was our first time so didn't quite know what to expect, especially since I had never tried Malaysian food before. We were greeted by a lovely man (I think perhaps the owner?) and he showed us to our table and gave us plenty of time to... More
