Excellent food although the portions seem to be getting smaller. Backed up by great service.

The Malaya has it all- great food, fabulous views and a wonderful selection of wines! It's a fabulous place for a divine dinner, particularly for those that lot a little bit (or more) or spice!

The Malaya has been a long time favourite since it opened! Amazing dishes like the otak otak, stay skewers, beef rendang, kapitan prawns (battered prawns in an incredible coconut curry sauce) - I would always happily recommend to locals and overseas visitors alike!

The MALAYA is one of my favourites in Sydney, I'm never disappointed with the food. My favourites are the salt and pepper prawns which are so crisp and light and delicious. Also love the kapitan prawns and the Szechuan eggplant which are really tasty. Had dessert for the first time and was so pleased they were small serves but packed full of flavour. We had the black rice pudding and the sago pudding which were a perfect way to finish our meals. Will be back again as often as possible!

Fantastic food, great service, nice selection of drinks and a beautiful view! This is our favourite restaurant, this time we took friends over the holiday break and they loved it as much as we do.

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
