Reliably very good food in a nice setting high above King St wharf overlooking the water. Wine is more expensive than it should be.

Superb food, the chicken wings are an absolute must as is the Malay curry, spot on.
Dear James, Thank you for your feedback. We are so pleased to hear you and your guests enjoyed the Chilli Chicken Wings and the Malaya Curry. The curry is made to the original recipe of when the restaurant first opened its doors in 1963 :) We are so proud to still be serving this to Sydney diners today. Looking forward to having you dine with us again soon. Regards The Malaya Management Team

Great food in a great location. We had a banquet dinner and the food just kept coming out and was all very tasty and well prepared. Didn't sample the wines as we just went with beers to accompany the food! Service was attentive and friendly

Great food and flavours, a shame the signature Malaya curry was sold out.

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
