“Great Malay”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 4, 2013 via mobile

The food was fantastic. Outstanding dishes were the lamb curry, a salmon sashimi salad based around Chinese New Year festivities, the Gado Gado and the prawns wrapped in vermicelli.
The roti even if cut up is amazing with the peanut sauce.
Service was impeccable - would love to go again!

“malaysian gem”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed December 11, 2012

went there a couple of weeks ago, after calling many malaysian restaurants who actually
served that mayaysian water spinach dish called Kang Kong ( not many serve this ).

walked in and was delighted in teh beautiful way tehy have set up the resteraunt .

servcie was great and we ordered alot of teh specials of the day . everyone of them was fantastic - from the praws to teh rice to the spinach and more.

not a cheap place to go - mains were about $ 28.00, but oh so good. not a noisy place either .

“Intimate atmosphere, warm food and service”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 21, 2012

Our second experience at this resteraunt after an impressive xmas work function here. We were squeezed in for a quick but quaint Sarurday night dinner. Entree was squid and prawn/chicken wontons, delish! For mains we both had seafood laksa. Excellent quality for money the staff are very warm and attentive, definetly what we were looking for in a casual romantic meal. Highly recommended!

“A Good Find”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 13, 2012 via mobile

Highly recommend this place. We were staying in Fitzroy for the weekend and chose this at random. Not disappointed at all. Ricky treated us well and explained the dishes we chose. All food tasty, well presented and all at a good price. Would return here.
