    I think we are very lucky to have Kapitan in our neighborhood. The wasabi prawns and the Singapore noodles are exceptional, I can also recommend the scallops with ginger and spring onions. Always enjoy our dinners at Kapitan.

    Tried the Laksa as this is stable for comparison. The chicken was crumbed vs poached chicken and the soup base was avg. I would recommend other asian dishes vs Malaysian.

    Great restaurant, clean and quiet. Food is fantastic especially the chili crab. Only one waiter so service wasn't the best this time though (probably due to covid). Highly recommended.

    We love this local restaurant. This time we had wasabi prawns- the best we have ever had. The peppered wavy beef was superbly cooked. Salt and pepper calamari crisp and piping hot with just the right amount of spice. Service is prompt and friendly. Wine list well priced. The specialty is crab which looking around most people were having and eating with gusto. Finger licking good.

    The food was excellent, but was a long time before staff came to take our order initially.

    Service definitely needs to improve. Wasn’t busy but the last dish took a long time to arrive. We thought it was forgotten and had to remind the waiter. Table was left dirty with crab shells, crumbs and tissues after the dishes were cleaned.

    Had a reservation, but when I arrived they said that they were full. They could only seat us outside or we would have to wait 30 minutes. Left without waiting. Unbelieviably bad service.

    Outstanding in all respects. Try the wasabi prawns, the beef ribs and you will never want to go elsewhere for these dishes. Wine list is good and not overpriced. Service is attentive and spot on.

    Terrible service which ruined the pretty good food. We were disappointed as this place came highly recommended. A pity and we wont be going back.

    Great prawns and crabs. Really fresh! And competitively priced. Dining environment was much nicer than Asian restaurants in Chinatown or Richmond. However, if you like spicy, as for extra, as the default spice in the laksa and other dishes was too mild to be authentic Malaysian. Probably for an Aussie tolerance of spiciness!
