“Average. Literally”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 18 February 2014

Food, there's nothing to rave about. It's was okay but had better food in another Malaysian/Indonesia restaurant on Pier Street.

The only 1 thing that I found unacceptable is the pigeons flying in and out the restaurant and eating the leftovers on the table or floors, that's definitely bad and hazardous for the patron health.

“Good value Malaysian food in Perth!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 22 January 2013

We stayed just around the corner from Insan Cafe, but only discovered it 3 days after arriving in Perth! It's situated next to a bustling Japanese noodle bar, so it can easily be missed. However, the open windows and door concept made it easy to find.

The food is tasty and authentic. Nasi lemak and mee goring mamak was tasty. Soto ayam could be better. The nasi ayam was delicious, albeit Malay style as opposed to the Hainanese style.

Prices are reasonable and staff were friendly. Highly recommended for those wanting a dose of true Malaysian style food.

“Halal Malaysian Food in Hay Street”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 18 September 2012

Frequented this cafe for a number of times during our 1 week stay in Perth. Perfect place to fix our Malaysian food craving in the cold early spring weather. The food were yummy, and the nasi campur (mix rice) selection were good value for money and generously proportioned. Staff were also very friendly and the owner personally walked around saying hi when it's not too busy . Now if only they can perfected their teh tarik... :)

“Authentic Malay Food”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 21 April 2012

We stumbled into this restaurant by chance. Felt like something light and was absolutely surprised at how tasty the satay was. So was the mee goreng. Just like how mum made them back in Malaysia. Lovely vegetarian curry puffs too. There is no need to miss Malay food for all visitors to Perth. The menu was extensive and service fast. The prices were reasonable and the place very clean and comfortable.
