This is a rather high end eatery that serves authentic Malaysian food at a premium. Nonetheless, the Nasi Bojari is a MUST ORDER because I can guarantee you, you can never find anywhere else that serves the same awesome goodness as such! For MYR24.90 per order, the portion is enough to stuff you to the brim. For small eaters, it... More

We ate lunch at this place today. The service is expedient, the food is delicious (we ordered the prawn noodle soup and the dumpling soup--both tasty). If you want to eat dinner here, be prepared for a very long wait. But for lunch it was no problem getting a table, even though it was really busy. If we had enough... More

Really enjoyed my meal here. Was here with friends who live here and been before. We had Satay Chicken to start, then I had Curry Laksa. Absolutely delicious meal, I'd definitely return and recommend to friends!

Probably suitable for tourists since it lacks authenticity. Costs myr38+ for a coffee and nasi bojari. I don't have issues paying, having dined in expensive cities, but the price-quality ratio needs to be justified. Furthermore, service was generally surly and nonchalant. I am proud of authentic Malaysian cuisine, but not the franchised souless type. As a comparative, imagine sphaghetti bolognese... More

been to Madam's kwan countless time already, love their nasi bojuri and banana fritters. I love the surrounding. Be sure to come early if you don't want to wait in a long line during lunch , dinner, and during weekends.

Couple from Finlad visited Madame Kwan on 21th June. We had Curry Laksa and Sang Ha Noodles. Both portions were so big and delicious. Fast service and very clean place. Would go back for sure!

The Nasi Bojari and Nasi Lemak will never fail you whenever you are craving for authentic Malaysian cuisine. End your meal with Gula Melaka or Banana Fritters that will definitely made your dinner experience complete.

Very popular. Lucky to get a table within 10 mins, as they suggested. Had the Nasi Lemak which was nice, but next time will have the one with the fried chicken. Service was fast and efficient and friendly. Well worth going.

Except for a couple of dishes, Madam Kwan has been on the decline for sometime now and it's easy to explain. Unless one is very hungry and near that joint, one might 'enjoy' the santan-heavy dishes. One can get much better tasting Nyonya food THAN at Mdm Kwan.

Great local food like nasi lemak, laksa. The satay is one of the best I have had. You pay for the service and atmosphere. I tried the branch at the basement of pavilion.
