“Monday night take-away”
Reviewed October 22, 2013 via mobile

Stopped in to get some take-away and was pleasantly surprised at the quality apart from a couple of minor flaws. The marinated wings were crispy and tasty, the Malay pork ribs were small pieces of pork deep-fried in batter and with the most moreish sauce which was sweet with a touch of garlic. The Penang chicken curry was very good. My only criticism was the very basic Chinese fried rice and though it was a family size, the rice was bland, lacked the ingredients you would expect to find, and was $15. It was a shame as the rest of the food was tasty, filling and enjoyable.

“Cold and disappointing ...”
Reviewed October 4, 2013

We arrived and were seated under an air conditioner vent and we were freezing! We asked the waitress to adjust the temperature, which she did, but we were still cold! Hence, when our food was delivered, it went cold very quickly. The entree was greasy and the main meal below average. Five very disappointed customers who won't be coming back ...

We came to this restaurant after reading some of the rave reviews. However, we were disappointed with the quality of the food - mostly fried. We ordered about 3 entrees - roti, calamari dumplings and chicken spring rolls &, 5 mains to share - honey prawns, char keuh teow, chow mein, green curry, sweet & sour pork. We found that the kueh teow was inedible and not what we are used to. The noodles were limp and very oily. The rest of the meals were a little more palatable and the entrees were quite nice.
The wait staff were polite and pleasant, although they did forget to cook one of our dishes and needed to be reminded.
Coming from an Asian background, we were quite disappointed overall with what was supposed to be authentic chinese food.

“Excellent & cheap takeaway”
Reviewed August 8, 2013

On our first night in Coolangatta we stumbled across Little Malaya & decided to have a take away meal. The food was delicious & very reasonably priced. The restaurant was book out so that's a good sign of the quality of the food, the service & prices.
