Char Kuay teow was disappointing as it did not taste like Malaysian Char Kuay Teow! The lime juice turned out to be lime cordial and not freshly squeezed lime juice as described in the menu inappropriately priced at $6.50 per glass!

This is a great place in Belconnen to pick up some excellent vegan or vegetarian food. Delicious noodles, lots of vegies, fried tofu, coconut rice and really good soy meat. Really friendly staff as well.

One of my favorite Canberra restaurants. The staff are always warm and friendly and they always ask if i'd like to have the optional extra vego/vegan menu. The food is bursting with flavor and spices. My favorite was the vegan fish dish. I'll definitely be back for more delicious feeds. It is worth making your way to this slightly out... More

Having just returned from 2 weeks in Malaysia we were keen to compare Malaysian Chapter's food with the 'real deal'. We were sadly disappointed. The restaurant appears to have changed hands since we were last there and while the facade is still the original Malaysian, the food is definitely Indian curry with lots of Chilli. We were assured that since... More

This is our second visit to this charming family run Malaysian restaurant in Belconnen. The food on both occasions has been flavoursome and delicious. The service on both times was really attentive with time taken to explain the menu. We will be back again to try some other fabulous sounding Malaysian dishes on the menu.

This is my go to restaurant for an amazing vegan meal. They have an entire separate menu dedicated to it. The rendang is amazing!

Food selection is rather limited. What they have is good. But the service is very slow. From ordering to first dish, it was about 20 minutes. But the kids' fried rice took 50 minutes!

Born out of desire to serve Canberra the most authentic Malaysian cuisine, Malaysian Chapter a family run restaurant has proven to be one of the favourites in the Australian Capital Territory. We provide a family friendly cosy environment with choices for everyone from the spice lovers to the "no chili" preferences. We genuinely cater to most dietary requirements including Gluten Free, Vegan, Vegetarian and the meat,seafood choices etc. How do we do this? The secret is in the ingredients... we make all our raw ingredients from scratch. Knowing what goes into a dish gives us the advantage to serve you better, fresher and healthier food. All this served with the infamous Malaysian hospitality. Oh and for the little ones, the Kid's corner brings out the best in them while the older ones dig into the goodies.
