Malaysian food is not something that my husband&i eat often,but with my son-in-laws experience in all kinds of asian food we made some great choices.We were promptly seated and our waitress was very attentive on a busy Sat.afternoon.We ordered several different appetizers and shared those as well as entrees.Chicken&shrimp entrees were very good and my daughter is vegetarian and found...

We were looking for a quick dinner to have between checking out the Union Square Christmas Market and going on a Christmas Light tour. We found Laut through Trip Advisor and OpenTable. The reviews indicated mixed service. Sometime good. Sometimes not. We found the service to be very attentive. Almost deferential. We were pretty unimaginative and ordered the Pad Thai.... More

Sweet noodles when I asked for spicy! The waitress did not return, the service was mediocre and the food was less than average. They have B rating and there are so many better places in the area. If you do come here don't order the Thai food stick to the Malaysian.

The $10 lunch menu has great variety and sizable portions. I had the pork with noodles and kale and I would order that again. My husband and brother enjoyed their lunches, too, but they ate them so fast that I forgot what they ate.

Great little place for Thai and Malaysian in the heart of NY. Like all of NY, it's busy and noisy on the weekend. Nice enough place and the staff was good. We had the Laut special noodle and the Mamasan chicken. Both were good... we will go back. Bye

Very nice Malaysian food, closed to authentic. I ordered the fried rice noodle for lunch, will recommend that. Decoration should be refurbished.

Being Malaysian, I had high hopes for this place especially after hearing about it's Michelin star of sort. The decor and atmosphere were dim & depressing with little class, akin to some downtown Chinese cafe. Had nasi lemak which was far from authentic. Admittedly, I didn't try every single dish but judging from what I had, think I'd save my... More

Have a Malaysian (native) friend who swears by this place. Took a 5 person group there recently, pre rush hour and can only say this: skip all appetizers (roti c, etc are below average). Head straight for main dishes (fish in banana leaf, curries etc). Waiters were clue and thoughtless. Kept going to desk to negotiate some/any kind of service.... More

Spicy is how i want my food and this resto has it all! Chicken beef vegies - perfect spice. Service was really good, quick and very friendly. Last time i was in this resto, it was the beginning of a magical night!

My daughter and I where walking around and saw this charming restaurant. It was crowded with people so we decided to try it. The staff was so welcoming. The food especially the naan appy was amazing and very different. Our food was delicious -- maybe a little heavy on the salt for me -- but otherwise delicious
