    Good food, quick service - a little on the expensive side for what it is, but servings are a decent size, so you leave satisfied. The balcony option is nice, particularly under COVID, but quite noisy given on liverpool road (traffic in evening pretty bad, especially with police or ambulance screaming by), and it doesn't have an awning that prevents direct evening sun from hitting you in face in Summer (that actually was the low point of an otherwise lovely time).

    Authentic Malaysian Singaporean food. We ordered the char kuey teow, sambal pipies, roti canai and sambal okra. Drinks we ordered the kumquat and chendol. You have to write your own order on a form and unfortunately my friend wrote 1 number wrong for the chendol and got Coffee dinosaur. We asked if she could change and unfortunately not entertained. Food came fast and was good serving size and quality. Service could have been better.

    Great place to hangout with friends. Food is generous and service is impeccable. We had lala, belacan beans and pork ribs. They were yum! Would come back to dine again here.

    This was my second visit, as the first time was great, i was craving for the salted egg crab that’s why we went back there to dine. To our disappointment, there wasn’t much sauce to the crab, it was also overcooked. You can tell because the crab meat shriveled and pulled away from the shell, with almost nothing left for us to eat. It was a $109 for a kilo of that mud crab, +10$ for the salted egg sauce. So we had to try and eat whatever we can to get our money’s worth (which in my opinion we still didn’t get). We also ordered roti with curry sauce, the roti did not look like the authentic “crumpled” one that i know, and tasted from other restaurants, the curry sauce was ok. On the positive side, the pork ribs dish was tender and delicious, the chendol dessert tasted ok as well. Regarding the staff, one of the servers (the younger one) did not look too happy to be doing her job, never smiled, and just dumped our food on the table without any word. The other one who was also the cashier was more friendly and all smiles. The ambiance wasn’t that great this time, people were too loud on their convos and laughed out loud like there’s no other people dining in.

    Busy night at the restaurant which resulted in longer than expected wait time for the food. However the staff was very helpful and friendly. Great food. All in all it was a good experience :)

    Great food and customer service. It was good value for money (we had numerous dishes each). The restaurant itself was covid safe. Complimentary dessert too.

    In my opinion , it’s the best Malaysian restaurant outside Malaysia. Beat black pepper crab outside Singapore. Definitely go back to the restaurant

    Kreta Ayer is definitely one of my go to places for great Malaysian food. This place is a gem. Prices are reasonable and portions are generous but most of all, the food is absolutely delicious. They hit the spot for me. This is my personal thank you to the people who run the place for their great work.

    We took our son and his fiancé to celebrate their engagement. The food was very tasty. As it was a special occasion we ordered the whole crab in curry sauce, as well as many other dishes. Everything was tasty but the crab at market price of $80 per kilo we thought was a but on the high side. However, overall the food was good and we had a great evening. Thank you.

    Really authentic Malaysian food. Great black pepper crab. Great price. Happy to go back for another meal. Very extensive menu. Had the Barramundi , which was reasonably good, but the highlight was definite crab.
