Despite a Wellington food critic thinking KK serves food that's close to actual Malaysian food, it doesn't. The food has some Malaysian resemblance. However, it doesn't have to be close to the 'real' thing to be nice or delicious on its on merit. It's good food and reasonably priced. Some might even say cheap and cheerful but I'd put it a notch above that. Service is average.

I never had Malaysian food before and really enjoyed my meal here! Dishes are explained really well on the menu, which was great for someone like me who was new to Malaysian Cuisine! The food was served really quickly and was a good price! Only down thing was that one of waitresses was not polite at all, she barely spoke and didn't seem to friendly... But I enjoyed my meal here.

If you find yourself in Wellington and in the need of some good Asian food, you can't go past K K Malaysian Restaurant on Ghuznee St just by Cuba St. It's quite small and very popular so be prepared to wait for a seat (generally they will take your name and reserve the next table after giving you a timeframe to come back) or grab something to take away. Once you're seated however, your food won't be far away and it is fresh, tasty, and so full of flavor. I had the Chicken Curry, my partner had Vege Curry. Both come with a side of steamed rice and we also had spring rolls. Next time we will skip the spring rolls in favor of actually finishing our meals with roti. $32 for 2 people (1 x Entree, 2 x Main, 2 x Roti).

Seriously, this place is fantastic!
