I have been eating here almost every week since 1999 (until about 18 months ago) and have seen many staff come and go. KKs used to be fantastic, fresh and super tasty, always reliable and delicious. Over the last couple of years or so the service has gone downhill to the point where the staff are downright rude. The quality... More

Great tasting food from the equivalent of a street café-style in Malaysia. It really brought back memories of our time in West Malaysia (the peninsula). The wait staff can appear to be a bit intimidating in their direct demanding way but we had a native Malaysian Chinese friend with us so that helped - and actually they are just being... More

Out of this tiny eatery comes the best Singapore Style Laksa in Wellington- and I have tested quite a few. Not known for anything else it is this I return for and it has been outstanding for years. Keep up the good work KK Malaysia.

As far as cheap eats go this one is good for taste & price but you just have to put up with awful, rude staff. I know you get what you pay for but it wouldn't hurt the staff to be nicer to customers. Yes, it's Friday night & your busy but that should come as no surprise as it's... More

This is the place to go if u want to eat a cheap, delicious Malaysian meal. The place is tiny, warm, clean and it's always very busy. Food is tasty and good size. My advice is to always book a table otherwise u will need to wait for a long time and if getting take away call and order over... More

Nice food and very cheap.....the quality and quantity is good and consistent. Its not 100% malaysian in taste but it could be due to the ingredients in New Zealand. All in all its nice and tasty food. It does serve for asian palate....if not malaysian specifically....quick service and always full...recommend to all .....

Kk Malasyan is simple and unpretentious. The kind of food to enjoy when out on the cheap. The menu is comprehensive and varied. The service is quick, the place is clean. Do book in advance, it gets very busy. The beef rendang is amazing.

On our way to Wellington from Rotorua this is our first stop for dinner. It was ok not great the food is lacking the Malaysian spice, service and food was fast. Had to wait a bit for sitting, small but cosy restaurant. Prices and serving are reasonable.

My personal rating is a 6.5/10 in terms of taste compared to the streets in Malaysia. It's close but not close enough to make it taste like the real thing. Price is very reasonable but if you are after the real Malaysian taste, you will be a little disappointed.
