The reason this place has been around for decades, and we could only get a 6pm sitting, is because the food is fantastic and ridiculously cheap. Add to that a relaxed environment and good service, plus BYO wine, and you can't go wrong with this place - if you can get in!

In the evening the menu is more extensive and if there is something not on their menu and from Malaysia Angie will make it to... More

I quite liked their food. It was very different from what I had tasted before. They are pretty expensive. The price range is from $18-$30 for a good dish that includes a hefty amount of meat. My friend and I are pretty big eaters so I think one dish could just be enough for two people. You have to pay... More

Been here so many times and it is always great. It's got the best Roti Chanai in Auckland and Char Kwei Tieuw. Angie is the best hostess and helps with suggestions for meals if you aren't sure what you want. Amazing value, Best food. love it!

OVERVIEW: A small unassuming restaurant , which was busy even on a Tuesday night! PROS: The pricing was reasonable, especially for dinner. The customer service was also excellent. CONS: To be frank, the food was lacklustre - the portions were barely sufficient and the flavours were dull. This review is titled the way it is, due to the high expectations... More

I am Malaysian and I feel homey whenever I visit this place. They served a huge portion for a single person and it was tasty. The staffs are friendly and helpful.

After flying on Malaysian Airlines to New Zealand my son was very keen to try more Malaysian food while we were staying in Auckland. He checked out Trip Advisor (where else?) and discovered that Sri Pinang was a) top rated and b) only a short walk from where we were staying. We had an interesting, totally safe, stroll along the...

On entering the aroma of the place was a little off- putting but once we got used to it (which took a while) we settled down to enjoy our meal. We opted to order different dishes which we all shared. The food was varied & great from Nasi Goreng through various beef & chicken curries.
