“Great food”
Reviewed February 18, 2014 via mobile

Great food at reasonable price. Everything is about $10 on average. Salt and pepper calamari with jellyfish salad is the best dish.

Nice staff but be aware of long waiting at lunch time.

They accept eftpos at minimum purchase of $10, and discount for membership.

“Awesome Restaurant”
Reviewed February 14, 2014

Hubby and I being Malaysian food lovers decided to give this restaurant a whirl after hearing great things...

I'd have to say I thoroughly enjoyed this restaurant!! The food was to die for!!!

We ordered the satay chicken which you get to watch them grilling it just like you would on the streets of penang! Was very delicious!

We also tried the friend wontons which were AMAZING!!!

For mains we had the pork belly and the curry - OH MY! Coca cola pork belly - IS A MUST!!! and the curry... beautiful flavours! nice balance of chilli... the meat so tender and juicy it just melted in your mouth...

We were told to try the ice cream and i'd definitely recommend.. its a nice cleansing of the pallette and very smooth and creamy and a great way to finish of a delicious meal!

They don't have many dishes and they more focus on smaller servings... but from all the food i seen others being served it was all of high quality!

One thing I found quite was the rustic good old metal old style camping cups your drinks came in!! and plates also...

We'll definitely be coming back here very soon!!!

Great food and excellent service. We had the chicken satay skewers, seafood hotpot and a couple of Tiger beers. Good flavours, well cooked and very friendly waiters.

“Absolutely Delicious - Great Value for Money”
Reviewed October 19, 2013

We tried this place on recommendation & it was excellent! The Spring Rolls are done differently & come out freshly cooked & are so tasty. The Rendang with crispy Roti was delicious. Everything we ordered was freshly cooked with good serving sizes and very reasonably priced.
This restaurant is a little gem! The food is served on authentic Malaysian crockery. They make every effort to provide a true Malaysian dining experience.
Please try them out, you won't be disappointed.
Masak Masak is in an inconspicuous position, so needs word of mouth recommendations.
They are open for lunch and dinner & their 'lunch special' is only $10.
Give them a go, your taste buds will be delighted!
