Good little Malaysian cafe

Basic decor but great food and really friendly owners. Relatively cheap lunch or dinner. I've bought the boys here for probably the last decade. Good place for family meal.

Went here last week to grab a roti chanai. I used to come here all the time but the food has gone down a few notches...not to mention the woman on the til who didn't smile. The roti was ok, a bit dense. It came with a tiny bit of curry sauce and a piece of chicken for $9.

Appearances can be deceiving. It doesn't look much but it has a great lunch menu with very reasonable priced food. Quick service. It's a hidden gem. Great dishes of the day.

The Beehive Cafe has standard Malaysian food, well made and good value. Although the interior has an uninspiring ambiance, it is popular with local office workers because of the food. As well as Malaysian food, it does have western food as well. If you're in the vicinity of Parliament, this could be a good choice for lunch. It has both... More
