Very bad service. The staff were too busy to notice us and was late in their food (with no apologies). Food was alright, however the whole experience was marred by shabby service. Will never go again and will tell people to stay away.

I took my mother out for dinner to celebrate her 89th birthday. Mum is a bit fussy about what she eats but agreed to try Malay Kitchen. We were not disappointed. Even though the restaurant was crowded, the staff were very friendly and took time with us to make sure that mum enjoyed her evening. Mum ordered the sweet and... More

Food nice but very bad service. The lady boss seemed too busy for us and was busy entertaining her regular clients. She was very friendly to her regulars but was stoned faced to other customers. A shame as the food is good

Average food made very unpleasant by the woman owner's extremely rude, unwelcome, unfriendly attitude and poor service to her customers. She has absolutely no manners whatsoever and when I paid the bill she couldn't even give me a 'thank you.'

I will never go back to this place and have been telling as many people as I can about the terrible customer service I received. The food was average at best. The woman owner, and who I presume is her arrogant teenage son,of this resturant should never be allowed to speak to customers the way they do.

The owner is arrogant and told us to get lost just because we asked something about the food. How can such an arrogant owner be allowed to run a restaurant?

This is one of our favourite local restaurants. It is always busy despite its average location - no ambience. Love their Roti Chennai bread - very authentic Malaysian. It is a family run business and even the young daughter works there. Highly recommended.

The Yum Yum duck is absolutely to die for! Entrees were all freshly prepared and positively delicious. What this restaurant lacks in ambiance it makes up for in flavor. A pleasant dining experience.

I visited this restaurant as part of a group of about 30 people. The evening we visited we had the banquet so had a range of food to try and all of it was hot, fresh and authentic tasting. They managed to serve all the meals in a timely fashion and were still serving other tables and carry out food... More
