This was my favourite Malaysian restaurant in Kingsway & our favourites were Lobak, Char Kway Teow, Mee Goreng & the Fried Fish with Nonya Sauce. So on Monday 18 February 2013, we excitedly brought our friends from Malaysia to sample Malysian hawker food in Glen Waverley. They ordered Mee Goreng, Curry Laksa & Hokkien Mee.
When the food arrived on the table, the presentation & look of the food was poor & unappetising & certainly did not look like what we were used to. Portion sizes had also shrunk. Upon eating, the flavour was disgusting & definitely non- Malaysian. We were so embarrassed & have vowed never to return.
We don't know if the chef was fostered off or walked away to Papparich a few doors away. Whatever the reason for the appalling food, franchising is about consistency in quality & quantity. I can see Straits of Malacca dying & closing its door very soon.
Just beware & save your dollars by buying ready made mixtures from the Asian groceries - you would at least be guaranteed quality from A1, Tean's packet mixes than going to this restaurant!
