“Curry Laksa from heaven”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 18, 2013

Chinta Ria has set the bar high with their Curry Laksa. Over the years it has remained consistent and has not changed. This is a good thing. And I have foudn it has also remained consistent at all of the Chinta Ria restaurants. For a perfect Laksa, I recommend you try one from here at least once.

“Love this place!!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 24, 2013

Been here so many times... never disappointed! We love it. On a balmy summers evening its great sitting outside being amongst the people wandering around Acland street. The food is sensational. We have probably tried most things on the menu over time, and liked all the dishes, our favorites are the sambal spinach, and seafood laksa, with some Roti on the side to mop up the sauces... Yum!!

“Maybe expectations were too high”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed December 25, 2012

Aftre reading all the great reviews, I didn't have the wow experience I was expecting here. Perhaps it was that my expectations were unfair ... or perhaps it was because we were in a group and took the option of a banquet rather than ordering some of the amazing sounding options available.

Our service was very slow, to the point of asking when the rest of the main meal was coming. Our waitress apologized a number of times, but the apology did not produce the food.

Overall nice -but not the best considering the quality of other restaraunts nearby.
