Hakalok was recommended to us years ago...and we've been back ever since! Not necessary the best Malaysian but good enough. We had many celebration dinners there - catering up to 20! The owner Mr Choon is friendly and accommodating & the staff are very friendly. Yes we have had some... read more

It seems to be a family business with simple but decent food with not bad selection for vegetarians. Place not very pretty, but clean. It's away from highstreet and free car park is next to it. Better to book

Very friendly service makes you comfortable. They recommend good options when you are not sure of the menu. Made a special dish for me as I wanted a spicy one. Ordered many dishes all of them were awesome

We went to Hakalok on a quiet Monday night. We ordered soft shell crab and Malaysian chilli chicken with rice. The food was very average but the bill was quite high compared to the quality and taste of food! The soft crab shell should be served with some soya based sauce on the side. I think the restaurant is doing... More

Before booking, I rang ahead to enquire whether they could accommodate coeliacs. They said that they could, but advised me to avoid Fridays and Saturdays, those days being their busiest times. I therefore booked a table on a Wednesday evening at 6.30pm. On arriving at the restaurant however, the head waiter expressed reservations about being able to deliver gluten free... More

My husband and I have been going to this restaurant on average twice per month since it opened some years ago. We consider ourselves very lucky to have such a lovely restaurant within walking distance of our home. The menu is varied, consisting of Thai, Malay and Chinese food - everything we have ever ordered is cooked to perfection. The... More

The ratings of 4 out of 5 and its ranking of #3 best in Welling Garden City convinced me to walk half an hour to this place even though there were a few places closer by. I called ahead as I fully expected it to be busy. Just me on a business trip and they said they should be able... More

This is our go to restaurant for a quick bite or takeaway and its a nice friendly, casual venue to catch up with friends too. Although very local to us we would definitely travel to visit and have been going here for years on a regular, my husband weekly, basis. The staff, especially Andy, are very friendly and welcoming and... More
