“Good food and service, plus local wines”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 3, 2013

We wanted a meal that wasn't either formal or heavy, and Don's Malaysian restaurant seemed like a good bet. And it was.

Every dish was pleasant and nicely cooked and the service was good throughout the meal. For me, though, the highlight was the range of VERY reasonably priced local wines, with most under $30 a bottle: the Cape Jaffa blend we had was, as anticipated, excellent.

You're in Robe but you don't want seafood or pizza? Go to Don's.

“Let down”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 7, 2013

My pet hate in a restaurant is a staffer using a table for personal reasons while you are eating. Makes you feel like you're intruding. The meals were good except my fried ice cream which was still frozen and the sizzling beef was a bit tough. Décor was good and seating comfortable and well spaced.

Dear Customer

we are so sorry to know that you are satisfied with our services as we truly apologize for this experience that have occur to you time with us. I am sorry about also the tough beef that was served, and the fried ice-cream, the fried ice-cream was meant to be frozen, what is fried/cooked is actually the outside battered layer for only for less than a minute to be cook from the outside and still remain ice-cream in the inside.

We apologize for our service again, please don't hesitate to let us know anything that we can be a much better services.

Warm regards,
Don's Kitchen

“Best Malaysian ever.”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 18, 2013

I don't ever leave reviews, however the food here is too good to not share. Fresh, healthly and delicious. Perfect serving size and to be honest is the best I've ever had. 10/10.
