Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

I live in Pembrokeshire but don’t visit Tenby a great deal. However each time I’ve come in the smells from Nora’s kitchen are amazing. During a solo shopping trip I picked up a vegetarian Malaysian curry and I didn’t disappoint. It was absolutely delicious. You...could tell how fresh the ingredients were, it was made to order as heat preference was asked. I will definitely be back and would highly recommend.More

It's hard to convey using words how good the food was from this place. Had the salmon curry special and the Aloo Roti. I was expecting it to be good, but not this good. If you're staying in Tenby and you haven't been yet, you...need to go at least once.More

Absolutely incredible food with service to match! A must for any visit to Tenby. I have been to Nora’s many times, often with several months between visits but Nora and her husband remember me every time, check my spice level and chat away with me...whilst cooking my food fresh to order. Nora hits it spot on EVERY time, with food that is on tasty, you wish her restaurant was next door to your home. If you are looking for something more creative than fish and chips, please, please, please, make this top of your list.More

We were on a family holiday in Tenby for the half term holidays. I had done some research beforehand and had found this place with its great reviews so really wanted to give it a try. My wife is vegan, so it was important to...find somewhere we could all eat. On walking through the entrance to the Old Market Hall, we were greeted by the most fantastic smells from Nora's Kitchen, so we knew it was going to be good! The place is deservedly popular so you can have to wait a short while, as each meal is freshly prepared to order. We didn't mind the short wait though! I ordered the Malaysian Salmon Curry, my wife had the Vegan Nyonya Lime & Rice, and my son had the Mee Goreng. When we ordered we were each asked how spicy we wanted our food, which was great. Our food arrived and we all agreed that it was absolutely amazing. Definitely the best Malaysian food we have ever had! It was all delicious, fragrant, light and perfectly spiced! My wife said this was the best vegan curry she has ever had! Thank you so much! It really was amazing food, and we wished we lived closer or had something similar near to us! We even bought the Nyonya Lime Curry Paste to try at home! Thanks again.More

We live in Essex but go to Pembrokeshire often. We always make a point of going to Tenby to visit Noras Kitchen. The food has never let us down. We’ve tried various dishes and enjoyed them all. This is a place I highly recommend and...will always make a point of going to when I’m the area.More

The food was tasty but we feel that the cost was far too high for the portion size and the fact it was takeaway which needed reheating. The price needs to be lowered considerably.

Delicious authentic Malaysian food cooked fresh to order! For the location (in the Tenby Market Hall) it is a little pricey though. Nora and her husband are friendly and chatty and it's a wonderful informal experience to sit in and eat.

Found this place in the market following positive reviews. Very nice food, expect to pay £10 -£15 per person. We tried the egg fried noodles and chicken curry. It was delicious and would definitely return. Staff are friendly.

We were in Port Talbot for a wedding and decided to visit Tenby the next day. We were after a late lunch and were wandering around and went in the Old Food Market. Almost immediately on walking through the entrance the most amazing smells were...hitting us from Nora's Kitchen, so we decided to eat there. I ordered the Malaysian King Prawn Curry and my husband had the Chicken Rendang Curry and we shared a roti. On ordering we were asked how spicy we wanted our meals which was a lovely touch as you rarely get asked this. All I can say is the food was absolutely outstanding. The most fragrant, tasty, spiced food that we have ever had and the prawns were huge! My mouth was tingling for hours with the flavours. As others have said, surroundings are quite basic, with the menu on boards, but it really didn't matter. We knew nothing about Tenby or this place and literally just stumbled upon it. Quite simply one of the best meals I have ever had and I really wished I lived closer. Thank you so much, it was amazing! PS, I'd love the recipe for the Malaysian Prawn Curry!More

We’ve waited all week to visit Nora’s and it was well worth it. The food was beautifully spiced - rich and fragrant. I liked that you could choose no spice, mild, medium or spicy which suits all palates. We had chicken rending, nasi goreng and...mee goreng and they were all superb. (We all chose medium spice which was definitely pitched right.) Given that everything is cooked to order the wait time (10-15 minutes) was very reasonable. The portions were perfect - if anything they’re large for lunchtime. There are lots of lovely places to find lunch in Tenby and we’ve tried quite a few, but this knocks the others out of the park. Great value fresh delicious food. Thanks, Nora’s kitchen!More

This place is such a little hidden gem! So glad I decided to give it a go as the nyona lime curry was delicious, moist chicken and such a flavourful sauce. I'm not great with spice either and it was just perfect. You can sit...in or takeaway and it's cooked right that minute. Perfect!More

So happy to find Malay Halal food in Tenby! Ordered beef rendang and mee goreng mamak for lunch! Food were freshly cooked and most importantly it was yummy! Reasonable waiting time and food portion was good too. All the best to Nora’s Kitchen .
