Food was great, service felt a bit rushed. But to be expected on a weekday. Shame we couldn't get an aperitif before we got into our meal but! Otherwise, all good.

Food was exceptional. Service fantastic. We had a newborn with our group that made is late getting there. The staff held the kitchen for us. And they never pressured us to rush our meal. Thanks for understanding.

Was an incredibly good meal. The service was impressive and the wine list good. Highly recommended restaurant.

We are a regular visitor. Disappointing this time as the signature banquet lost its prawn main dish and no roti. Portion of mains seems to have shrunk a little. We ordered chilli wings too and the quality was bad as there was too much batter and over fried so it was really hard. We sent it back to kitchen. It was disappointing as we know we've had better previously. Hope it could be improved on our next visit.

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
