Stumbled across this place after a friend suggested going to the restaurant district in Dickson. Delicious food, generous portions and quick service.

Agree with some of the reviewers that the restaurant's decor is looking alittle tired, with the bamboo and rattan and batik, however it was clean. While the restaurant says its Malaysian-Chinese food, its their Peranakan connection that makes this place different from other Malaysian-Chinese restaurants about. We tried the Pork Baba - and it was delicious. The mee goreng was... More

I've been here several times over the last 6 months and have never been disappointed. Consistently great food and service. The spring rolls are always massive and delicious, and the pork dim sums are great tasting too. The satay chicken is always a must when we visit. Great value for great food.

I too have visited Rasa Sayang for over 20 years but I'm sorry to say - no more. My recent visit was terrible. The food has really gone downhill and the place looks old, tired and dirty. Curry puffs and spring rolls were greasy and badly cooked. The four main dishes we had were all below average for this kind... More

My partner and I dined at Rasa Sayang last night with two interstate guests and two locals. Once again the food was spectacular, as was the service. We ordered an array of entrees, all of which were delicious. The mains were also fabulous. With six of us at the table we ordered five mains which provided such a huge range... More

I thought I would give it a try after seeing the reviews from other TripAdvisor reviewers. I hate to say it but I was very disappointed with the food. I ordered the curry puffs and shared with a friend (she ordered the vegetable spring rolls). I thought it looked a bit strange seeing flat curry puffs served but that wasn't... More

I have been dining in and purchasing takeaway from Rasa Sayang for over 10 years. The service is always timely and food is flavoursome and fresh. The prices are very reasonable so it is a great venue for parties and celebrations. The owner is very friendly and welcoming. The menu has lots of yummy options to cater for everyone's needs....

Have been visiting this restaurant regularly over the past twenty years, with large groups, a few friends or my partner. We come back because in all that time we have been given, quick attentive service, consistently good food, even when catering for a large group. The food is a combination of Malay and Chinese and always is delicious. We have... More

A great selection of Malay & Chinese food. Staff were attentive and the food arrived in quick time after we ordered. Excellent service and good size dishes.

We chose this restaurant out of the blue as we were watching a hockey tournament nearby. We were surprised at how delicious it was! The best Asian meal I think I have eaten anywhere in a restaurant. We ordered about 7 dishes between 5 of us and every single one was great. The waiter was very friendly and provided great... More
