“Very good value for money”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 3, 2013

We were looking for a place for dinner in Chinatown, and chanced upon Sambal Kampung.

The menu in the window looked interesting, and it was a good choice to eat here. We were not disappointed with the quality of the food or the service, which was quick and friendly.

The price was very reasonable, and proved to be very good value for money.

“Great value”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 7, 2012 via mobile

Cheap but only in the price. While the downstairs is a tad unprepossessing, the food is excellent and cheap. We had a couple of drinks, entrees and mains - all for $55!
Food was fresh, non greasy and authentic.

“Authentic taste!!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 10, 2012

Sambal kampung
Heavy rain came when we were shopping around China town. We were forced to stop. Feels hungry. Somehow my eyes look at to the restaurant across the street. Curious with restaurant names "Sambal Kampung" Malaysia, We crossed the street to the restaurant. Arriving there, the waitress greeted us with a sweet smile. Invited us to come and sit. We Starts browsing menu she gave to us. I chose chicken curry with roti chane and meatball soup. My husband chose rendang, one of his favorite foods, and teh tarik. It turned out very tasty and authentic taste. I love roti chane with curry sauce reminds me with Medan city North Sumatra my parent came from. Service was good and fast. The price is very competitive. If come to Melbourne again this restaurant definitely on our main list for visit.

“Fantastic food, great value and wonderful service”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 6, 2012

Located very close to our hotel we found this wonderful restaurant which served meals cooked to order by a great asian chef. Lunch menu was sooooo reasonable. Dinner was not much more expensive. Ingredients were fresh, meals were superb and service was excellent.
