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

The food is tasty, plenty of it and at not much more than $10 for a main dish (dine in) no wonder it is always busy. Highly recommended malaysian restaurant

We ordered takeaway 4:50pm, till 5.35pm the order has not been done. Checked with one staff, we were told ” there is nothing we can do, the chef is cooking.”. When we requested to talk to the manager, the same staff with chewing gum in his mouth replied “the chef is manager, he is too busy to talk to you.”... More

Really cheap Malay near Cuba street. Their food is good. Try the deep fried tofu for starters and then the authentic char kwey teow for main.

What a quaint little restaurant! FINALLY managed to score a free table here after a year of wanting to go but never being able to as its generally always packed or closed. An extremely popular restaurant, with simple decor and delicious aromas wafting from the kitchen. Service was superb, as usually is in such a tiny asian restaurant; prompt and... More

Really good Laksa, delicious roti. Small shop but well worth the wait for a table. Kung Po is also awesome!

We had Friday night dinner and were very pleased. Tasty, fast, reasonable priced.  We just travelled for a month in Malaysia, and felt like the food at KK was very close to the food we enjoyed there.  Tip is to book ahead or go outside peak lunch or dinner hours.
