Came here after reading about the place in the Lonely Planet. Apparently really popular place (people came in for take-out all the time) but we didn't get it. Satay was bland and sauce really watery and pale. Nothing like the satay in Malaysia. Mains were ok, but again, nothing special. Small place, waitresses seemed uninterested, lot of people walking in... More

KK Malaysian never fails to deliver consistent food and service. The food is tasty, hot and good value. Only downside is the small restaurant area (which is often super busy). However, takeout is just as good if arriving when no tables.

Good reasonably priced Malaysian food places in Wellington. Service is quick, and food is authentic enough.

We came to have dinner and the place was busy. We waited for a seat, but the girl at the front who attended to us just bluntly said "there is no table.", and didn't even offer if we'd want to wait. We did ask how long the wait was which she replied 20 minutes, but the unwelcoming and poor customer... More

Hidden on Ghuznee street, just off Cuba, this is a hugely popular little restaurant. Best Malaysian I've had in Wellington, delivers consistently good food. Great variety, great value for money. If you plan to eat in, book ahead on busy nights...take out is an option - expect to wait 10 to 15 minutes typically.

I've tried 4 different dishes as well as their roti bread and peanut sauce. I've never been disappointed - they are not trying to be fancy but the food is super tasty and the large portions and prices are great too!

Classic Malaysian dishes, very well executed. Very small so best to go in off hours. Note: not licenced - not sure about byo. Very good value.

Satisfying meal. Reasonably priced & good portion size. Lots of take-always order during the 45min I was in the restaurant. Not surprising as food is really cheap. Food arrived at table promptly. Service is quick & polite. No fuss restaurant, just tasty food.

I have heard great things about KK before, and I am sure I will continue to do so, however I thought the food I ordered was beyond average. The chicken satay was dry and the satay was watery and lacked heat. The chicken mee goreng was rather bland, had no vegetables, and even though I asked for medium it was... More

Always Busy, Always the same, just good quality Malaysian at a great price. Better to eat a meal here for $25 for two, than go to other junk food places for the same price. No you won't get restaurant service levels, so don't expect it !! The staff will take your order promptly and your meal will arrive promptly. Good... More
