Hakalok serves the most freshly cooked Thai kitchen food! We have been coming here for 7 years and have never had a bad meal. It also offers wonderful Chinese food too and does lovely take aways which is great so be sure to try a vast selection of wonderful food and options. Our favourites are the whole steamed ginger, chilli... More

We have been looking for a Chinese Takeaway we like for ages now but have not found one until we came across Hakalok on here. We have quite high expectations with Chinese as were massively spoilt by how good the one we used to live near was. However this proved to be the best one in Welwyn by far. The... More

My colleagues and I have been for lunch here three times in as many weeks. The fact that you can get a mixture of Malaysian, Chinese, Thai or other dishes, all lovingly created (although I'm not sure how authentic they are), is what draws us back. We've had a wide variety of choices from the ultra hot chilli dip to... More

All dishes... More

Friendly welcome (like the one ages ago was a common habit of every restaurant) into a restaurant that seems a family run business. This place is small and nice inside, and I'm glad I didn't stop to the exterior appearances to decide whether to enter or not. The menu offers a generous selection of dishes, some of them are part...

Visited here for an evening meal with friends have eaten here previously lunch times, there is a set lunch time deal which is good value. We chose a set meal for four every course was cooked well. The only negative is the do not put heaters on the table to keep it warm just a miner niggle

A place to enjoy some of the Malaysian food, glad to found it in WGC. If you have time, eat in and enjoy your meal in the restaurant.

The food is pretty good in this restaurant! It isn't the best food I've tried but it is definitely nice and nothing to complain about! We came for my mother in laws birthday and all enjoyed it!
