My boyfriend received a frozen pizza for the equivalent of 6euros, we could'nt eat a piece. And me...received a piece of frozen chicken and a kind of gluant rice, so disgusting. Waiting for the bill, the boss was just looking at us and waiting without a word and really didnt care about this situation. Don't waste your time and money,... More

My first piece of advice - do not go here. This is what happened to us: We were a large group - 12 people, the manager took our orders. He checked he had 12 orders for food, then checked each of our orders individually, we were raising our hands each time he said an order, to check that nothing was... More

The location of this cafe is lovely - on the river, with pretty duo tables with candles on them etc. The food - I had pizza - was fine, small in size and average in terms of taste. The service was diabolical - we ordered a large bottle of water for two people and it came with one glass, I... More

Waited 1hr30mins and chased order 4 times...to then be told by the manager the order will now be cancelled by him because the kitchen had got the order wrong and could no longer make the food as it would take too long to cook. Malaka deserves better.....dont even sit down....every table had a big wait and some kind of issue.... More

Took 30 minutes to prepare a Malay laksa and when it arrived we found it quite inedible. The river view is nice but seating on that side is shabby. Other dishes are okay.

Went for dinner as recommended, but disappointed at limited fare on offer (set dinners) despite this, the service still managed to be dreadful - 3 dinners arrived within 20 minutes, then one more 15 minutes after that, whilst the other 2 (same as previous orders) had their rice brought after an hour, then the curries when the microwave had heated...

Food was bad, service really average, waiting time too long, they forgot one dish (which they tried anyhow to charge), one serve of rice arrived 5 mins after the first one, really the basics aren't there!

Nice concept and good location, but kitchen is a disaster. 6 people standing around and 1 cooks order by order. No wonder it took 45 mins for some basic lunch dishes chicken rice/laksa). Completely clueless.

Seemed more interested in serving foreign tourists than locals.I wouldn't recommend this place to anyone. They got my order wrong after I waited an hour for my food.I was deeply disappointed after reading positive reviews.
