The restaurant served Malay food, it was fresh & good although not very exceptional. We had beef curry which is quite nice, shrimp was also fresh & delicious. I also recommend the duck in coconut broth. The place was busy and full of customers and overall it was a good place to get malay food.

We arrived close to 3pm before they close for lunch break so we weren't sure if they will serve us. Upon inquiry to the kitchen they gladly did. We really appreciated their efforts. Two mains, a roti with sauce and two teh tarik later we were satisfied customers. Give it a try very reasonable price food.

The worst Malaysian food o have ever eaten. Couldn't really tell which dish was which, first course arrived but no cutlery. Then it turned out to be the wrong dish. Don't bother with this place.

We recently had a large gathering of family and friends at Chill Padi's in Melbourne Central. The whole event was organised from interstate and I found every contact was seamless and "can do"; from allowing us to bring our own wine, to tailoring the banquet menu to our taste. Every one of the staff was very friendly and helpful. There... More

This place is a little hard to find but you need to try it. Special mention goes to the pad thai and beef rending. This place never disappoints and for a place that gets busy the wait times are quite short. You will love it!!!

I recently visited with some friends and we had the two course banquet which is great value at $19. The chicken curry and pad Thai were delicious. I have eaten here many times and always enjoy it.

Every time i visited melbourne, this is a must-have. The laksa is almost perfect every time ... It is even better than in my home country where the origin of this dish comes from. I love the Teh Tarik drink, too.
