Would like to come back and try some more of the Malaysian cuisines. Service is good. Tried kungpo chicken and tofu on another visit. Was good. Value for money. 3.5*

If you want good tasting Malaysian food at reasonable prices, Rasa Sayang is the place. Tony, the Manager and Head Chef is an excellent cook and always takes the time to ask you "How was your meal ?"
