The food is always lovely here - consistently good. I would recommend the signature banquet menu - particularly if there's just 2 of you as you get to taste a number of dishes (not skimpy portions either!). We also had the wine matching which made it $100 pp.) Service was also good - we had a lovely French man called Theodore look after us and he was fab!
Dear Sheryl, Thank you for taking the time to review your recent dining experience with us. We are delighted to hear you enjoyed the wonderful flavours of the Signature Banquet matched with magnificent wines. I will be sure to let Theodore know of your kind words. We look forward to having you dine with us again soon. Regards The Malaya Management Team

Sensational food and service. We were a party of 7. The staff were so efficient; sometimes almost Ninja like! My water and wine glass were never empty and half the time I never noticed them being topped up. Thanks so much team Malaya!
Dear Christine, Thank you for taking the time to write this wonderful review. We are very proud of our 'ninja like' staff and their efficiency. Delighted you were please too! Looking forward to having you dine with us again soon. Regards The Malaya Management Team

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
