Good Malaysian food in Brooklyn

We visited this place for dinner on Monday night. I was happy that I was able to find parking on the normally crowded 8th Ave. I liked the layout of the place as it as a rustic feel. As the person we were meeting arrived prior to us, we were seated quickly. Waving down a waitress we placed our... read more

Part of a chain - another location is in Chinatown. That one is definitely better for Malaysian food in terms of quality. This Nyona has deteriorated over the years in taste. It definitely doesn't taste like it used to. If you want mediocre Malaysian, then come here. Otherwise, head to Chinatown in the city (Manhattan).

I visited this Mayaysian restaurant with a Chinese friend who is originally from Malaysia. It is located in the busy Chinatown area of Brooklyn along 8th Avenue. Not a fancy restaurant. Simply a small clean restaurant with very good food. We feasted on Jumbo Prawns in their special sauce, homemade Roti Canai, and chicken broth rice. . . . .... More

This is a small, informal yet pretty restaurant, compared to all the others in Brooklyn's Chinatown. If you haven't had Malaysian food, this restaurant is worth a try because it's delcious. Don't expect to get amazing service. The waiters barely speak English, but I must say that their food is awesome. I've been going there for years and I've never... More
