I first ate here 25 years ago, when the restaurant first opened, and continue to come back, because the food is always mouthwateringly tasty, and more importantly, consistently of the same high quality. Best value for money and their Beef Rendang, and Mee Gorang are winners. Ang is a very attentive host, you never have to wait long for your... More

Sri Pinang is a real gem. We were given a voucher 5 years ago by a chef friend and went with a list of recommendations on the menu. Still going there regularly and have introduced many people to this restaurant. Wonderful Malaysian food.

Like many little diners on Karangahape road, this one is a hidden gem well worth a visit. If you like Malaysian food, this is a must try. I've gone many times over the last few years and it is never disappointing. You do need to book for the dinner as it can get very busy. Try it all as all... More

Ate at Sri Pinang for the first time on Saturday with my mother. We ordered the seafood laksa and the chicken laksa. Our waitress was very friendly and helpful. The serving size was huge (much bigger than Monsoon Poon's laksa anyway) and the laksa was super tasty. Heaps of tofu and chicken/mussels - and two huge prawns. I was really... More

Very authentic! Best Roti Canai and Nasi Lemak I've had outside Malaysa. Will become my go-to Malaysian restaurant in Auckland.

Went there for dinner for the first time with some friends, busy nite but after the starters arrived, the rest of the dishes came in pretty quick succession. Beautiful, tasty food, stuffed myself senseless and was still full the next morning. The prawn crackers and spicy beef made the night !

Yes its authentically Malay food, and the extra reward for a Chinese family like us who wanted some exotic Asian flavor far away from home was the company from hostess Angie! Being a Malay Chinese herself, our hospitable Angie really knows the best dishes to suggest according to our likings. We really enjoyed the food, and a nice little chat... More

We went for dinner and the worst experince possible. The service was good though. We ordered Nasi goreng and a Malyasian chicken curry with sambal paste. The Nasi goreng was bland, tastes like normal food court type fried rice. no accompaniment with it like prawn craker or anything. But the worst is the chicken, it was served raw. We returned... More
