Good range of dishes and all very authentic. Basic Formica-top tables and self service tea, ie. nothing flash but you're not here for the decor. Gets quite busy from about 6:30.

Has heaps of good reviews but didn't live up to them. Beef Rendang was way too sweet and the beef reduced to a mush. The Kway Teow was good though. Service was disinterested at best. There are certainly better Malaysian around.

Selera is simply a great restaurant at not a lot of money. I dropped in with a work colleahue for a bite after drinks at the Lumsden across the road. i had the butter fish which comes in a delicious crumbed batter with rice. For the money ($16) you just can't beat it. The service is prompt, the staff friendly. Free green tea or what is provided and all meals are fresh and have superb flavours. If you want a good, inexpensive feed in Newmarket this is the place to go. Thoroughly recommended as always.

They used to have a $10 lunch menu but were surprised that they didn't have it anymore. Due to the laksa craving we opted to stay. We were fortunate to get a table since there was 6 of us and as we were seated the restaurant was full, which is a common sight. After ordering we were surprised that they asked us to pay first which is not very common in a restaurant. Even though they were packed we received our food in 10 minute or so. The food was amazing as always. This place is especially good for prawn lovers since the prawns they have here are huge and very succulent. Although parking around New Market is generally not easy it is a good stop for those wanting a tasty lunch.

Very much enjoyed the curry laksa here with the roti. Their sambal is delicious too. Price was reasonable if not super cheap.
