The food here was a real memory jogger on the senses. The food, both the taste and smells, took us back to that time when we were fortunate to live in Malaysia. If you have never been then I can definitely recommend a visit to this restaurant...great staff and GREAT food

We visited here the first time a few years ago and were blown away by the fact it was tasty food and we didn't leave with dicky tummies! We recently took our baby who had just started to get interested in food (but... More

It was my first visit to this restaurant, to celebrate a friend's birthday. She is Malaysian, and so I guessed that the food would be good as she herself eats there. It didn't disappoint, as it was all lovely and there was plenty of it. Great value too, and the drinks were not too expensive for the city centre. I... More

We were away on a girlie weekend away and stumbled (literally) by accident on Nada Budaya before hitting the town. Glad we did, an excellent restaurant with lovely staff, all the food was fresh and tasty and very reasonably priced. A great find even if it wasn't are intended destination!

Went with the family and throughly enjoyed it. The hosts and waitresses were great and attentive especially when considering the children. The food was spot on. The curry puffs are a must but a special so not always on the menu. The Nasi Goreng aaa spot on for flavour and taste. Get some chilli paste if you like a bit... More

We are regular visitors to Nada Budaya, when in Hockley for events at the Ice Arena. The cellar location means that is usually able to seat us without trouble and the food is great when we need tasty, gluten free cuisine. My partner regularly opts for the Nasi Goreng. I tend to try something new each visit. Some fo the... More
