This is a favorite neighborhood restaurant. There is something on this menu for everybody. Service is always friendly, offering suggestions or explanations if you are uncertain or unfamiliar. The food is quite tasty and portions are generous.

I have a new profound love for Malaysian Food! Granted this is the only place where I have eaten Malaysian food so I am certainly no expert and can't tell if this place is pretty authentic; but I can definitely say it's tasty!!! I have been here about 4 times already and usually I always make an effort to try... More

We had their seafood lemongrass soup, chicken wings, Belacan fried rice, daging kecap manis (beef) and sambal tumis shrimp. Everything was delicious! The beef and shrimp were very spicy but you can ask them to lessen the spice if you wish.

The Malaysian food is here consistently delicious. You would be hard pressed to find better mango chicken. Belacan pronounced 'Bell lot chen' is a style in which the food is prepared. The eggplant belacan is one of our favorites. Daging Kecap Manis is another one of our favorites, a must try.

Its subtitled a Malyasian Bistro which is more appropriate four this nice restaurant that served outstanding fare! We really annoyed the Crab Rangoon appetizer. Other items we tried were the Coconut Shrimp, Chow Mein, Ayam Masek Merah, Kung Pao Chicken and the Honey Sesame Beef. All were very good and can be recommended. Entrees were between $9.00 and $14.00. Services... More

Went for dinner with friends as the food is supposedly really good here. Ordered for some Fresh Coconut and the water was really sweet and refreshing. Tried the Roti Canai and Chicken Wings for starters and the Roti Canai was outstanding. For the main course, we tried the Fish Curry with Rice and Nasi Goreng and Spicy Shrimp Fried Rice.... More

As our week-long family vacation in Southern California drew to a close, we wanted to eat something that we couldn't back home. A quick online search led us to Belacan Grill. OH. WOW! What an amazing, wonderful, tasty delight this was!! The best way to describe Malaysian food is that it is a cross of Thai and Indian -- but... More

Conveniently located off the 55 Freeway with easy parking.... good for a quick lunch or more leisurely dinner. Menu comprises of both Chinese and Malaysian selections. For starters Roti Canai or Curry Puffs are good; followed by a variety of soups ( lemon grass and... More

I happen to like Curry Mei. Theirs is to die for!!! All of their food is well prepared and graciously served! They have several meeting areas which I've used either for intimate meetings or groups upwards of 60 people. Bee is one of the most gracious hostesses you can find! Just so you will know, Malaysian food is similar to... More

I have visited this restaurant numerous times, but this time was extremely disappointing. Even though the restaurant was not very occupied (maybe a quarter of tables?) I was seated at a table that did not appear to have been cleaned (water/liquid and crumbs still on table and seats) and the hostess did not respond when I mentioned this observation. I... More
