The best Malaysian food anywhere

My favourite eaterie. I've travelled a lot but never tasted a better Nasi Goreng or Roti Chani. It's not licensed but you can take your own wine. It might look pretty basic but the food is superb. Would also recommend the Nasi Lemak and Beef Rendang.

After entering this unpretentious restaurant we quickly had the feeling that we had done the right thing to stay. Service was attentive and friendly. No alcohol licence but a liquor shop nearby for byo. Being vegetarian we were impressed that they checked with us on the details of what ingredients we were happy to have included in our meals and...

We used to eat here years ago. Went back recently. Still BYO (and what a rarity that is these days!) Will be heading back again soon. The rendung was good but the stand out dish was the Sambal Aubergine. Staff were very helpful. We ordered more roti to take away and the kitchen was closed by then but they gave... More

We visited this place after checking trip advisor ratings and were not disappointed. Portions are huge, we could probably gave shared a main meal with some extra rice. It is a BYO with corkage 1dollar.

Looking for somewhere to eat on Auckland's 'K' road on a Monday night this place looked quite lively so we chose here to eat. The restaurant itself probably seats about 40 people so is small and cosy. We were a party of 4 and chose the combination starter between us - spring rolls, won ton, prawn crackers, squid rings and... More

Been going here regularly for over twenty years and its still my number one. One interesting note from me, is that I know several other regulars, and each one of us has a different favorite dish.

We've been here a few time and now became our favourite spot. The food was good, portions massive and fairly priced. Staff are very friendly. The only thing was that the menu should have some pictures so we could see what it is. Would recommend come with a group of people and share.

Mr Man is not happy. Sri Pinang is his special place, for over 25 years his special place and he does not like sharing. "Don't write the review" he says. "I think the secret's out" I reply looking around a packed Sri Pinang on a mid-week night. I can't remember a time I have ever seen the room empty. Mr... More
