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.

I've been dining here for well over 15 years. This Malaysian restaurant is an institution on K' Road, a stayer in an often changing strip of cafes, bars and clubs - for obvious reasons. It's well priced and well worth a visit. Highly recommended if you want to escape the over priced cafe and restaurant scene of nearby Ponsonby Road.

An outstanding wee gem of a restaurant tucked away in plain view on K'Rd. Wonderfully authentic Malay cuisine with good vegetarian adaptations on the lunch menu, should this be a requirement. I do suggest making a booking for lunch as this is really a very popular lunch venue. Great value, marvellous food, you can't go wrong!!

Terrific variety as expected, all dishes can be shared and every one we ordered was delicious, way above other higher-priced places - and the added bonus is it's BYO! Lovely hosts, the business at night is testament to how good this place is, with very reasonable K Rd prices. An extremely enjoyable, and "comfortable", dining experience. Only negative is that...

My sister in law and her partner insisted we went here on our visit from the UK. It is nothing much to look at with a very basic interior. However, from the first welcome from Angie to the smell of the food wafting out you sensed it was going to be good. BYO means you can't complain about the drink... More
