CONSISTENTLY GREAT FOOD!!!!!

My friends and I have eaten here many many times over the years. I'm a vegetarian and the vegetarian Mei gorang & nasi gorang have always been consistently great dishes. My friends have always enjoyed the chicken versions of the same dishes. One of the young girls working there used to... read more

This place is one of Wellington’s iconic Malaysian restaurants on Ghuznee Street, established in 1998. You’re either a fan of KK’s (owner’s initials) or Satay Malaysia, which is just along from KK’s. I’ve always been a KK fan (but certainly not a KKK fan!). This place never falters with service, quality, or delicious, authentic Malaysian food. I seem to always... More

Had lots of people recommend this place. Service poor. Food very average. Chicken seemed batch fried and then added to sauces. Sambal chicken not spicy at all, tasted like deep fried chicken in tomato and onion sauce. Will not be visiting here again.

This was very good food at bargain prices at a sit down restaurant. Seating is limited, so you can call for reservations. No alcohol is served for what that is worth, and service not all that attentive, but the shrimp and rice noodle dishes very good. Would eat there again.

Hadn’t been here for a while and on my last visit the food was fantastic. Its still fantastic. We visited last Friday night. For entrée me and my friend had the mixed beef and chicken satay. Both were nice but the Chicken Satay was especially lovely. I had the Hainanese Chicken Rice as a main and my friend had the... More

We had a great dinner there. The food is excellent and there is more than enough in the plates. You can take leftovers home for the next day. The place although is quite small so it is probably better to book (it was full when we went there).

Haven't eaten here for some years - and fluked a table for two. Agree with others that if it's a nice day just grab a takeaway - so nice and such good value. So many people turned away because of all the tables being taken. We will book next time, just to make sure. We had beef satays (should've had... More

Good variety, including a number of soup, noodle, and rice dishes. Really delicious green-shelled mussels.

I stand by my statement that this is the best takeaway in Wellington. Yes, you can eat in but 99% of the times that I have been here over the years (and last time it was literally years, we're talking 6 years here) I have gotten a takeaway. Last night, I wasn't feeling like cooking at was near Ghuznee Street... More
