Think there is a typo in the restaurant's name - should read Sri Melaka - but whatever, it was the best meal we had in Malaysia and attractively priced. Dishes can be ordered in three sizes and waiting staff advised us that the smallest size would be fine - and it was, in fact almost more than we could manage, and we are a greedy family! Service was speedy and excellent. The only thing the restaurant can be faulted on is ambience, which is a little lacking as it is brightly lit and rather stark. 4 of us ate very well for about 80 myr.

The interior is not luxury, but this place is crowdy, and the food is very good and very cheap. You can choose between small, medium and large portions, medium is suitable for on person. Ground floor is busy and noisy, first floor is more relaxing. The best restaurant we found in KK.

From the outside looked a little dodgy, but as soon as we walked it we were welcomed by the owner, quickly sat down and to food procession started.

Great food and service was very attentive and observant.

Sadly I am leaving KK tomorrow, otherwise I would go back.

Beef redang was delicious!

Our hotel recommended this restaurant when we asked about good places to eat that serve local food in Kota Kinabalu. To be honest there is nothing attractive about the restaurant in terms of exterior or interior. However don't let appearances put you off. If you choose wisely you can get a good Malay meal here. Three out of the four of us made good choices. Our Thai friend who was with us went for fried rice with fried chicken which was bland. We can recommend the Laksa, the chicken Penang and the beef curry. Dress down, glad rags not required. I'm not 100% certain but I think the only alcohol served is beer.
