We come to the Malaya regularly and the past few times have been good but this visit was amazing! We had a few new dishes and they were so delicious. I would say the meal we had was one of the best we’ve had in Sydney and will continue to return and recommend to friends and family!

We enjoyed delicious food, and attentive friendly service. We’ll certainly eat here again as we’ve done since the Malaya was located at Railway Square.

Returning to Sydney after many years and yearning for the best Laksa I’ve ever had The Malaya didn’t disappoint. The location had changed but the food and service was exemplary. I also use a mobility aid and the staff were helpful and welcoming. Can’t wait to return.

About The Malaya

A night of spice... For over 50 years, The Malaya has been serving up dishes that test taste buds with authentic spicy dishes based on traditional south east Asian cuisine. And judging from the groups of corporate diners and holidaygoers who crowd the Malaya's steeland-glass interiors day after day, they are clearly doing something right. Think you can handle chilli? See how spiceresistant you really are by putting your palate to the test with the 'extra hot' sambal. Located in Darling Harbour, the restaurant not only promises astonishing food but stunning sweeping waterviews in a contemporary and welcoming setting. Signature dishes include the spanner crab san choy bow for entrée and the delicious Duck Perchik for main. No matter what you choose you’re in for a real treat when you dine at The Malaya. Best dish: Duck Perchik
