“The best Asian food in Newcastle, at a great price!”
Reviewed July 11, 2013

I work in Charlestown and dine at Vistana for lunch at least once a week. The food is consistently of a high quality, comes out steaming hot and is perfectly portioned. The menu variety is fantastic and, while dominated by Malaysian food, also contains dishes from traditional Thai and Chinese menus, to please everyone! The food comes out lightning quick after you order and the staff are always nice, especially the owner, who does his best to ensure you have a top notch dining experience. The Satay Combination and Mee Goreng are my personal favourites!

“Cheap, cheerful and delish.”
Reviewed July 6, 2013 via mobile

This has become a regular of ours and we are slowly making our way through the menu. Been nothing but impressed with every meal. Try the roti they are the bomb.

“Best Malaysian I've had for years”
Reviewed May 23, 2013

This is not a fine dining restaurant but more a neat cafe style serving freshly cooked Malaysian hawker type food of a very high standard. We walked here from our accommodation on the recommendation of staff there. The look of the place didn't impress from the outside and inside we found a neat and clean area for eating in house. The kitchen occupies one wall so you can watch your food being prepared in large woks sitting on high heat gas jets, a bit like the average noodle place. We ordered Beef Randang with Nasi Goreng, what a surprise this was, we weren't expecting the beautifully cooked tender beef we were served, this normally needs slow cooking. The beef must have been prepared earlier and then turned into Randang so all the flavours are fresh. You order at the counter with the take away customers and the meal is then delivered to the table. We tried somewhere else the following night but found ourselves back at Vistana the next night, Randang again with some of the best Roti I've eaten.
Highly recommended.
