This small restaurent has a 3.5-4star rating which I'm surprised of! This not the place to go if you're after real Malaysian hot & spicy authentic meal. Even the hottest dish is very sweet and they don't have any hot sambal or chilie paste to offer! Pretty shocking. Dishes are cold and plates are old and not appealing. I wasted... More

Empty restaurant, entree wonderful (mixed entree) then lots of people arrived and almost all were served their main meals prior to our meals arriving. Noise level was exceedingly high. To catch the eye of the many young waitresses impossible. Finally the tall lady with beautiful red hair realised we had not been served and chased the kitchen for our main... More

After ordering takeaway's from Kampung Malay a number of times, I have always enjoyed their food and never had a problem with the customer service. BUT, unfortunately today I had an awful experience and I will not be returning. After dropping in to pick up my order, I was rudely told that I could not split the bill, despite having... More

Four of us dined here. I enjoyed food but service was lacking. If corkage is charged then staff should pour wine. Rice was brought to table immediately on ordering. Should have come to table with other dishes .

I've been going to this restaurant for a number of years and have always enjoyed the Malaysian food. Unfortunately the place lacks any soundproofing is very noisy. It's difficult to have a conversation there once there are several tables of diners. However, as the food has always been good, last night we ordered take away but from the Chinese menu.... More

This restaurant is a great place to dine and you'll want to come back again and again. BYO with a bottle shop nearby, cheap corkage, take away available, efficient service, delicious meals - it's a great find and has become so popular that it has spawned other restaurants on the Gold Coast.

This restaurant, on the corner of Markeri Street and The Parkway, Robina, offers very quick service and good food at a reasonable price. BYO is also accepted . It is extremely popular with locals and is very busy most nights. Unfortunately it is very noisy and impossible to have a conversation at the table without speaking very loudly which spoilt... More
