“Great food, but now moved into the city”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 8, 2014

Sad to see this one go from Thornleigh as we have eaten here a number of times, but Alice and the gang have now moved to a food court on George Street in the CBD. I wish they had stayed, its was close and we enjoyed the food.

“Shut down”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed December 12, 2012

This place had great food but unfortunately has been shut down with newspaper on the windows. At one time it said it would be renovated but no signs for at least 6 months

“Local Cheap Eat Wonderful Food”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 29, 2012

Great local restaurant at very reasonable prices. We have been going to Alice's for years and the food is consistently very good and cheap enough to take the whole family regularly. Don't expect fine dining service or decor but who cares when the food is so good! Love the roti and curries and the Char Kwai Teow and the Malaysian sweets are wonderful if you can buy them before they sell out>

“The joys of Kueh and other delights”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 10, 2012

We are blessed enough to live within walking distance of Makan@Alices and visit there as often as our diets will allow! Large serves of very delicious Malaysian Chinese food will have you coming back time and time again. Unlike other restaurants that invariably seem to deteriorate once they become very popular, Alices is consistently excellent.
The serves are large and you never leave feeling hungry! Try the Bee Hoon Tah!

4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 22, 2012

Char kwai teaw was to die for, great food and very affordable. They also offer takeaways, the rending is great and service is very friendly. Recommended!
