The three of us ordered different Roti's with curry. Service was fast and pleasant. Food was fantastic as always and a very good price. Alcohol and food for the three of us came out at less than $65.00 Fantastic.

We enjoyed quick lunch at Little Malaysia. Entree - Curry puff and chicken satay. Mains - Special fried rice and lamb curry with rice. Food was excellent. Service ok. Rice serving should be bigger though. Would definitely recommend visiting this little gem.

Locals know that Chinatown is the tried and true place
to eat before hitting the nightclub scene. The place
simply buzzes, and the well-preserved buildings exude
a sense of Imperial China stemming from immigration

such as sizzling honeyed prawns, and value for your
money. Stately matrons oversee family kitchens serving
