When our favourite curry laksa restaurant closed down a few years ago we were devastated, and spent the next few years looking for a good curry laksa, all to no avail. Until now. Satay Village serve a great curry laksa that can be customised to your palate, and it's very tasty. Great value too at just NZ$10. We've been back there a couple of times now and we'll definitely go back for our regular serving again!

Overall not very impressed. All curries have same base flavour/texture; very bitsy kind of like a chowder. My Laksa had only 1 fish ball, sliced into 4 pieces, a couple of slithers of crab and one slither of very dry low quality chicken. The noodles were very rubbery. My friend had fish curry which had a small amount of tough low quality fish.

Yes cheap eats but certainly not worthy of all the hype other reviewers seems to espouse. The satay sticks entree was mediocre although the chicken rendang was tasty. Guess the sourest flavour was the waitress who seemed glum and unwelcoming. Didn't leave a great impression.

Simple little Malaysian Restaurant with amazing food and fast and efficient service.BYO with mains around $12 and they are delicous.
A fun dining experience.If you are after a slow and romantic dinner this is not for you as meals are served within 10 minutes and diners come and go non stop.Top helpful staff to assist with menu.

Arrived here on a Sunday night for a meal with my Husband and Brother-in-law who recommended this place to us. We were certainly not disappointed at all. The meals were very tasty and the portion size was very substantial. I had Chicken Rendang was so yummy!! and very filling. The chicken wings and Roti's were so good also. The meals came out very quickly and the service was also very good. Would certainly recommend this restaurant to family and friends. This was a very pleasant dining experience, cant wait to come back to try the other dishes on the menu.
