We’ve been frequenting this place for years and remember a time when you could feed a family of 4 here for about $24. And no one left hungry. It now costs about $43 to feed the same family and you’re still hungry when you are...done. I get inflation and that they have to raise prices but restaurants generally don’t raise prices and reduce the serving size at the same time. The serving sizes these days are pretty pathetic for about $10 per entree. Except for the fact that they have really tasty food, we’d probably not come here anymore at least not as frequently.More

Used to be the only Malaysian restaurant in Wichita 20 years ago and still the only one in Wichita. They do have very authentic Malaysian dishes and taste better than their Chinese dishes. Their dishes are reasonably priced and attract many people. Particularly their Nasi...Lemak dish is my choice from their menu all time. Here are tips: Parking: It is located in a small mall and share the parking lot (free of charge) Speedy service: It is like a fast food restaurant. Some people complain about their restaurant is not being clean (tables and floor).More

This isn't a restaurant for American-Chinese food (sweet-and-sour pork, etc.); they serve authentic Chinese food here. When I go in, most of the customers I see are international students from WSU.

When you walk into Malaysia Café, you kinda feel like you are in a traditional Malay style coffee shop in Johor Bahru.. I tried some of the traditional dishes I ate weekly while living in Singapore and Malaysia, such as Hiananese Chicken Rice, Char Kway...Teow, and Roti with curry dipping sauce. The Hiananese Chicken rice was not even close to the traditional method that is used to steam the chicken. As well, the rice was just plain rice. If anyone knows the way it's prepared in Malaysia, this is NOT how it's done. I took a few bites of the chicken and it was rubbery and tasteless. The only good thing out of this dish was the chili sauce that was pretty spot on. I then tried the Char Kway Teow and have to say this was a bit closer to traditional, but lacking the amount of noodles and seafood. Beef (or meat) that was in it was a bit tough. However the flavor was pretty close. Ate about half of this and gave up. Followed up with Roti (pancake) and it was pretty good but I would expect it was frozen as I can make the same thing at home from frozen Roti that I get from the Indian store. The curry sauce used for dipping was green in color as opposed to the traditional redish color. I did however eat all of this...It was yummy even though it fell short of traditional. I don't want to be too tough on them as I have not tried all the other traditional dishes as maybe they are better. However, from what I sampled, I would not want people to think that this is the way Malaysia food is.More

Yep, I've been to Malaysia too and the food there is different, more authentic. Whatever. We are in Wichita and should be grateful we have choices. Get them to amp it up if you want, but support them and our food diversity.

We love Asian food especially Malaysian food and have been to Malaysia where the food is phenomenal and cheap , but the food here is essentially no different than a Chinese restaurant. You get a decent amount of food for the money but it wasn't...worth it as no one in our party enjoyed the food and we would never go back. A disappointment as we loved Malaysian food and we're hoping to find a good spot to get it in town, unfortunately this isn't it.More

Straightforward Asian with a specialty of Malaysian offerings. Big portions, reasonable prices. A little heavy on the MSG from time to time.

Eat in or carry out you will not be disappointed when you stop in here. Everything we've had has been delicious. The prices are very reasonable and they prepare the order quickly.

Ordered the garlic chicken dinner which comes with a vegetable roll, crab ragoon and your choice of two rices. The egg role was the size of a toothpick. The crab ragoon was normal size and not bad. The garlic chicken consisted of 5 pieces of...chicken with rice. Would not go back because of the taste and lack of food even for the price.More
