Loved it.... as soon as you walk in youd think youre in one of the kopi-tiams (coffee shops) back in Malaysia or Singapore. With the old "uncle" at the counter rattling off the menu at you. Spartan deco, but its all about the food here. Awsome malaysian food at decent prices. Smack n the heart of sydney. Had the laksa,... More

One of my absolute favorite places in Sydney to get Laksa. The soup broth is delicious and the thing keeps me coming back is the chili paste they have at the counter which adds a great kick and flavour to the soup. The setup inside is simple and they don't do table service, so don't come here expecting anything fancy.... More

I was bright here by my father to have lunch. It was highly recommended and I was not disappointed. When you walk in, it looked like a hospital cafeteria. It was a place that encouraged you eat and go. You definitely come here for the food, not the ambience. We ordered a Har Mee (prawn noodle) and a Hainan Chicken... More

I had dinner at this restaurant, somewhere in Sept. We had rice, egg, black pepper beef, duck (not sure the menu name), and chicken. It only cost for AUD100. But, the portion of the food is big. The taste was very good. Would like to recommend to others.

We happened upon this spot after a quick Trip Advisor search while in the area a few weeks ago. So glad that we went in. Malay Chinese Take Away doesn't look like much from the outside, nor is the decor inside anything to write home about but that's not why you are there. Service here is quick and friendly, you...

I never enjoyed laksa when I was living in Singapore. The version they sold in the Katong district was heavy on coconut milk, and the addition of cockles was an unappetizing touch. The broth was light and flavorless. So you can imagine my happy surprise when I was introduced to this place by my workmates. It reminded me of my... More

One of the attractions for me of staying in the neighbouring Radisson Blu hotel was the proximity to my favourite laksa haunt, Malay Chinese on Hunter St! Used to frequently do a laksa run for many of us in the office when I worked nearby, and now that I live outside of Sydney I always try to make it back... More

This place has been going 20 years with outstanding quality. They make the Kway Teow as you order it, the noodles are not soggy, plenty of Chinese sausage, great flavour, good ingredients. I get extra spicy. Great value at 10.50 eat in and a good seeing. Great laksa too.
