Description: Champor is the very first Malaysian dining in Germany. Based in Munich. Champor showcases the Malaysian home-style kitchen and the favourite street food, especially from Penang, my home. We do not Europeanise or compromise our food in any way. When we say spicy , we mean it. For some it will be an adventure for the palate, and for some of you, you might have to get used to it first. Our service team mirrors the hospitality of Asians. Champor is cosy and is like a sitting room of a good friend. We look forward to having you with us.

“Great dinner location”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 22, 2012 via mobile

We had a table on friday evening (reservation needed, it was quite full) and had spring rolls for starters, a spicy lemon grass chicken curry (menu online is not identical to menu on site), a crispy duck and ondeh-ondeh as desert... Service was excellent, food was excellent and some was even quite malaysian authentic (lemon grass chicken & ondeh-ondeh) so all in all a very recommandable experience!)

“A very nice meal”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 16, 2010

I was looking a an Asian restaurant while I was in Munich to take some colleagues. We went to Champor on a week night and had a very enjoyable meal. We eat outside in the courtyard area which was nice, and the food we had was fantastic. The staff were all very helpful and spoke English fluently.

“Amazing experience”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 27, 2010

Since 3 years we have Champor several times. Everytime the food, the ambience and the service were perfect. The starters (butter prawns, udang serai etc.) as well as dishes (black pepper prawns, crispy duck etc.) taste delicious. Sambai udang which is prawns in housemade sambai chili is the hottest meal I had in my life. But once you start you cannot stop. I ordered this several times since, although I know it will burn like hell. The ambient ce is very nice decorated, fool of colours but not overloaded. In the summer if the weather allows you can sit in the very romantic decorated garden. The service is also extraordinary. Especially in Munich where not much communication occurs normally between the service and the customer.
All in all, one of our favourite restaurants!

Great food! Fresh ingredients, dishes made on the spot (nevertheless relatively short waiting times). Very good service, English spoken. Curry Laksa made according to original recepy (watch out, though, the extra sauce is HOOOOT). I recommend the prawns in black pepper sauce. Definitely going back!

“Rubbish food. Not authentic. Not Halal”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed May 24, 2010

Claims it is Malay cuisine. Firstly- no such thing Malaysia is a colonial invention- Malay cuisine is Sumatran Minang ethnic minority cuisine.
Champor is market Malaysian pronunciation of the Indonesian noun "campur"- which means "mixture".
Second- "Malay" food should be Halal- which for Americans is like Kosher- pork and non-pork cannot be cooked together. Here, they do not bother. No disclaimer on menu. Especially problematic for Munich where large numbers of Muslim Arabs, Indonesians and Malaysians visit, not to mention Jewish people.
It is not authentic in the least and the claims of having ingredients flown in is ridiculous, if not blatant false advertising.
I live in Jakarta, Indonesia and regularly eat "Malay" food. It tastes nothing like this over-curried, over-santen (coconut milk) poor excuse for food.
Very disappointing.
Only redeemer is the service- the staff were good. Restaurant itself is pretty nice.

Dear peeweebee,
Champor is a Malaysian restaurant. Our Tag line is the Malaysian Kitchen, not the Malay kitchen.Being from Jakarta and our neighbouring country, a remark of this sort would not have been made.
We are are not a Muslim dining, therefore we are not Halal. Champor has never advertised itself as being Halal and there is no reason to remark this on our ala-carte. The Malaysian kitchen is a reflection of the various nationalities and religions.
Your saying that we do blatant advertising is a serious matter. We have proof that we bring the spices in. Do you have proof that we do not?
I would like to know the dish that you consumed. Pls name us the dish. We have 3 Malay -Malaysian influenced dishes. Which one did you have? It will be interesting to know which Malay dish was floating in coconut milk.
We take out work and kitchen very seriously and your crtics are not justified.
I is important that you educate yourself in terms of Malaysia, my homeland before you write a review that is very damaging and misleading.
