When we were turned away by Burger Burger around the corner before the movies one night we stumbled onto Selera. Authentic Malaysian food at a good price in no frills surroundings but just the ticket if you want something tasty on the run. Order and pay at the counter so there's no hanging around at the end. Good all-round experience.... More

Saw a lot of people in the restaurant one day and thought that I should check it out. Wasn't disappointed! Good portions and reasonably priced. Nice selection of traditional Malaysian food.

This is a no frills, efficient Malaysian restaurant with very good execution. They cook the food, but have you fill your own water and tea cups. The tea was barely luke warm. The napkins are little mini-tissues which my wife informs me are very authentic to Malaysia, but kind of weird in NZ. The main thing though is that the... More

This is a fast paced Malaysian restaurant. If you arrive at peak time - expect to wait for a table. They will seat you and take your order at the table. It is expected you then go get any drinks from the fridge and pay for your meal at the counter. They then cook your food and bring to the... More

If you are looking for a quick and easy meal under $50 for a couple, this is a good spot to eat. The servings are big, and food is very tasty - as long as you don't mind something a little spicy. The stir fried green beans were super yum and not too hot with just enough spice.

Fast good quality food at low price. Came across this restaurant by chance but noticed it was full of mainly Asian diners. Enjoyed excellent food cooked fresh and served very efficiently with tea or water included. Pay up front and enjoy the varied menu at budget prices - hence the restaurant being full.

We stopped here for a quick late lunch at about early afternoon. We did not have to wait for a table. This was a basic table and chairs get-your-own-tea-from-the-counter type of joint with great tasting food. The eating utensils were available from containers already set up on the table. Once the order was taken, payment was required up front. The... More

Laska and beef rendeng are pretty good but super salty. Drank over one litre of water and yet still tasting salty taste. This place is not only self service but also confusing. Half of the people there are confused as to how to order. Someone comes over to take the order. However, you will then need to take the order... More

We used to go every weekend. They know us, We are good clients. Today we were waiting for a table for 20 minutes and the gave the table to someone who just arrived. Instead of asking the person to give us the table they asked us to continue waiting for the next table. It's not the first time they do... More
