“SO DELICIOUS”
Reviewed May 29, 2014

I am in love with this place. Delicious food and great service. Some of the best food was laid before me. From the melt-in-your-mouth roti bread to the noodle dish, I could not get enough. I probably had three helpings of each dish ordered. Great service, as well. Definitely recommend for large groups.

“Beef in Wellington”
Reviewed May 28, 2014

Having never had Malaysian food before I really didn't know what to expect but I was blown away! Why you may ask, why not is the better question. Everything was absolutely perfect, from the food to the service and everything in between. Everyone must try the stir fry beef, it's incredible! I will always return to Istana Malaysia Restaurant when I'm in Wellington.

Reviewed May 27, 2014

As a regular traveller throughout NZ this would be far and above the BEST Malaysian meal I had had. Staff and exceptional and very friendly and no hesitation in recommending this Restaurant to all who travel to or through Wellington.

“Yummy food”
Reviewed April 11, 2014 via mobile

It's the first place I go to as the food is Devine and the staff are so friendly, and it's halal. They need one up in Auckland, as Wellington is a bit far to go for my Malaysian fix
