Took a work group of 6 people for dinner. Having been before I recommended the Eggplant and of course it was still amazing. Lots of restaurants put vegetarian meals on their menu - but they lack flavour. This restaurant has a whole page dedicated to Vegetarian dishes that are full of flavour! My CFO from Singapore who is a strict vegetarian was thrilled with the dinner and location.
Hi Brenda, Thank you for your feedback. We are delighted to hear you and your guests had a wonderful time and enjoyed the wide variety of vegetarian dishes on the menu. Looking forward to having you dine with us again soon. Kind regards The Malaya Management Team

Food is the best! Bit noisy so hard to hear what your guests are saying. The food is that good it’s worth having to say what a few times
Hi Laura, Thank you for your feedback. We are so delighted to hear you and your guests enjoyed your dining experience, despite the noise levels. As we are a large open plan restaurant it can be a little 'lively' when full. Looking forward to having you dine with us again soon. Kind 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
