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

Brought here by family 'in the know'. Cant remember what the name of the dish I ate was called, but it was a soupy, coco nutty, chicken curry, served with loads of roti bread. IT WAS AMAZING!! How I wish I lived in Wello as I would be a very regular customer!

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
