Great anticipation for this restaurant based on the review I read. The food was pretty authentic. The belachan tasted fresh. Hainanese chicken was smooth. Satay meat was juicy and the peanut sauce is creamy and crunchy. Penang chow kuay teao was good, although not as authentic as I had hope, the chilli belachan was a nice touch. I would be back....

Had a craving for Malay food while we were in town and so we ordered all the good stuff- Hainanese chicken rice, beef satay, and roti canai. All good dishes and done well.

Ordinarily I wouldn’t even bother to review a restaurant that I use only for take-out, but the Malay Satay Hut is a place that Seattleites should know about. Hidden away in one of the innumerable small strip malls that border the International District, the Satay Hut offers a diverse menu of truly delicious Malaysian food.

Malaysian cuisine is a unique blend of influences from China, Southeast Asia, and the Indian subcontinent, but it is not really ‘fusion’ cuisine, because each dish remains true to its origins. Malaysian food is complex yet subtle, fresh yet rich, and it is uniquely satisfying in a way that is difficult to describe.

The restaurant itself is nothing to write home about; not really bad, but generically nondescript; certainly not the kind of place that would make you want to linger for hours. And so I prefer take-out, which seems to account for a large fraction of their business anyway. Some of my favorite dishes are the Singapore Rice Noodle (which received a stamp of approval from my partner, who grew up in Singapore), the Silver Noodle Soup (silky and full of flavor), the exquisite Mango Shrimp, and when available, the Whole Fried Fish (especially if it’s a pompano). I’ve never had a dish from the Malay Satay Hut that I found disappointing.

So if your travels take you on Boren between Yesler and Jackson, stop by the Malay Satay Hut for take-out. You’ll be glad that you did.

Thought it would be interesting, but the quality was too low. Totally unhealthy food.

This is the type of place that all the locals know, and scarcely anyone else does. The food is FABULOUS...don't go there for atmosphere, but if you're looking for superb asian fusion food, this is da bomb.
