This local restaurant doesn't pretend to be fancy, but there are linen cloths on the tables. The staff are authentic, friendly and attentive, making suggestions where appropriate and happily accommodating variations. The food was freshly cooked to order and there was plenty of it. I went with two friends for a chatty supper and there was no pressure to leave.... More

My family and I have been going to Hakalok for several years now for the best Malaysian/Singaporean food we've had in the UK. My Mum is from Singapore and her and her other Singaporean friends regularly make the 30min trip to this restaurant as they deem it the closest quality food to what they expect back home. The staff are... More

My mother's family are chinese, from Malaysia and this is more or less the only oriental restaurant we visit outside of London. The dishes are well prepared and reasonably authentic, and the staff know us and know what we like, so visiting is always a pleasant experience. Service is usually prompt, despite a brisk takeaway trade, and the dishes are... More

We were a party of 8 and were staying in WGC for 1 night and decided to have a meal at Hakalok. The staff were friendly, the service was very good and the food was enjoyable and cooked to our liking. There is a wide variety for everyone, as I don't like spicy food I asked for a very mild... More

Once more and as always we've had a pleasant supper at Hakalok. Nice oriental decor - nothing over the top. Very friendly service with smiles and efficiency. The food is just great - Crispy Duck - perfect; the Currie was delicious as any made by our friends in Delhi. A star spangled sky for Hakalok.

I had food poisoning the first time I ever ate here. But, I went back months later as I love Thai food to give it a second chance. The restaurant was dead, our food was cold and very average. Really not impressed with this place and will not be going back.
