“Our little Home away from Home”
Reviewed 16 June 2013

My wife and have been to KK many times and Aesha Corner is our favourite little restaurant on the Waterfront in amongst another 25 Restaurants.......Their menu is quite extensive but if what your looking for isn't there,,,ask them.

As many times for us they have made a special on request and never disappointed with the quality for us.

The other good thing about Aesha is that it is actually part of three restaurants that work in together, with satay sticks and spring rolls available from the stand next door and speciality meals available from the Muslim Restaurant at the front.
The thing we love the most here are the staff are very friendly and helpful and the pricing is the same for whether you are a local or a tourist...well done Aesha ps love your Aesaha Chicken and rice combo....

“Don't order the whole grilled fish”
Reviewed 19 April 2013

The satay from next door was fabulous, as was the salted fish fried rice. You can get beer form next door, but the "fresh" fish grilled was overcooked and inedible and cost as much as the rest of the meal, so don't bother with it - get heaps of satay instead

“Where the locals eat”
Reviewed 26 March 2013 via mobile

Excellent value for money and great fresh local food. This place is definitely the best along the waterfront and you feel like you are experiencing real KK rather than following the tourists to one of the western style places along the strip. 2 course for 2 adults with soft drinks was about £8 in total. They do not serve alcohol but the Irish pub next door will sell you beers if you want.

“Positive surprise!”
Reviewed 4 February 2013

This restaurant looks small and plain, but when you sit down and get wonderful recommendations for great dishes from the superfriendly staff, you will have an absolutely awesome dining experience! Lots of locals go here, and there's a good reason why! It's in the middle of a line of western restaurant, but here you get real local food. Did I forget to mention that it very cheap, and you sit in a nice atmosphere right on the waterfront?
And if you are thirsty for beer, don't worry that they don't serve it at Aesha, the staff just gets the personnel from their neighboring Irish Pub to serve you whatever you want from the bar.
