Description: Don't miss this great restaurant! This restaurant is in the same edifice as a previous restaurant...which probably accounts for the fact that it may be overlooked. The previous establishment left a lot to be desired. It's a new jewel in a place that needed it. This is a totally new restaurant and an absolute DELIGHT! The inside has been totally refurbished and is elegant and tasteful while maintaining incredible value in its extensive menu of goodies from Malaysia-Thailand and China (with some Indian dishes, too). We stumbled upon it last year when we were looking for a good Chinese/Thai restaurant and we were not disappointed! The food is absolutely fantastic and has authentic Malaysian, Chinese and Thai food with a lot of vegetarian dishes. What struck us (besides the great food) was the courtesy and attentiveness from its owner who makes it a point to check on each customer personally. Even the chef came out to greet us when we said we were so pleased with our meal. The servers were great too (and you don't often find that these days.) I cannot believe all the items that are available. We have been there a few times and no matter what we order (both meat and veggie dishes) have been made with the freshest ingredients possible and have been superb! We now make this restaurant one of the regular places to eat when we want to have a nice evening out. It's perfect for a birthday dinner and/or a special date. (But still great prices.) They also offer takeout and frankly, if I had to have takeout, this would be the place! Gorgeous restaurant (for Wiltshire), great service, superb authentic cuisine, courteous service...what else could you want? Run, don't walk...it's that great a place and I hope the community supports as it takes cuisine up a notch for the area. Support local businesses, I say! :)

The restaurant was clean and tidy and there was a nice atmosphere.The service was very good and hospitable. Then menu choice was wide and the food was delivered in good time. The food itself was average and I have had better, portions were a little small but overall a good night out with family. Could not fault the efforts made to make us feel welcome and this is refreshing on a busy Saturday night. The price was reasonable to expect for a large family group and the drinks were flowing nicely. Overall a good Chinese. There are better around but maybe not in this area.

As a regular diner at this restaurant I cannot recommend it highly enough. We are always well looked after by the staff, the restaurant is clean, pleasantly decorated and spacious. They have an extensive Chinese/Thai menu and everything is cooked to your liking. The chef has bought out dishes for us to try on the house! Best chinese restaurant/take away in the area.

We had a lovely meal here, as recommended by the hotel owners we were staying with, staff were excellent! Food was of a very high quality, and even had a free dessert when we said we didn't want anything, a very nice restaurant and people! Would definitely return!

We moved to Melksham in December 2011 and after spending the day unpacking and having nothing in the fridge to eat, we decided to try a local restaurant at random. Ku was a lovely introduction to the town! The food was wonderful (I have eaten szechaun noodles in many places and Ku ranks very highly), yet far less costly than what I would expect to pay for the same standard. The staff were friendly and helpful at all times and the owner gave us a large basket of fortune cookies at the end of the meal to keep us going while we finished unpacking the next day! We will definitely be returning to Ku again and would strongly recommend Ku to anyone else visiting Melksham.

After having a couple of takeaways from here we decided to try the restaurant- came early one Saturday evening hadn't booked but that wasn't a problem.

We thoroughly enjoyed our meal can highly recommend the chicken rendang and Malaysian noodles. We were brought a small taster of another dish to try which was a nice touch.

Staff were friendly would most certainly return.
