    Delicious food as usual, smaller portions than I remember (2 prawns and 3 tiny pieces calamari in the seafood nasi goreng). Staff attentive and lovely, music almost club-level loud as sat near speaker but turned down on request.

    Excellent food. Not quite authentic Malaysian food but it had a nice modem twist that nicely suited the Northcote atmosphere. The food is perfect and always exclusively designed for sharing and the decor makes for smooth transitions from mouth watering eating to passionate conversations. Would recommend and would come again

    The food was delicious and didn't take too long to be brought to the table. The service was a little tardy taking our order, Great value with our 50% off deal through The Fork.

    All great, yummy modern Malaysian food, modern, pastel, hip interior, fantastic service, can just be a little too loud to converse.

    Delicious food, cocktails and Great service! It was hard trying to figure out what to order from the menu because it all looked good! We’ll be back for laksa next time :)

    Funky little place. Entrees were really good, I’d probably say even better than the mains. Satay sauce was amazing! Service was really quick and friendly. Highly recommend!

    We had a great experience at Merah. Great atmosphere, amazing food & very kind and warm service. The decor is very well thought out, each table private yet in a very open setting. Would highly recommend.

    Little restaurant in a great location. Food is tasty, although the menu was recently changed. Restaurant was not that busy, but to be fair we were there on a Sunday evening. The dessert was super good. The Panna Cotta!!!

    Excellent food and service. The staff were very helpful and informative regarding food. They even kindly provided my partner with a drink on the house for her birthday!

    Nice place, food perfectly acceptable but dishes a bit sweet and not spicy enough for my taste - more Thai than Malaysian in flavour. Soft shell crab awesome. Thanks!

    The place looks nice, but unfortunately that’s where it ends. It wasn’t busy yet the food came out at weird times and we had to ask for drink that had been forgotten. The laksa are okay. Pork one is a very strong pork flavour and doesn’t balance nicely. They didn’t honour the fork discount either.

    Beautifully cooked contemporary asian cuisine. Flavours respecrful to the traditional but refined and sometimes surprising in this incarnation.

    Merah has a cute fit out and a cheerful vibe. We dined with a 50% off voucher so took the opportunity to try a range of dishes. The highlights for us were the tofu nuggets and the rendang. The service was a little slow but it was a busy evening. We would return.

    The ambiance, staff and service was all lovely! The food was great especially the prawn laksa with white truffle was yum-o! The bao bun I thought without the discount is a little pricey for the size of it!

    Beautiful food. Some of the best laksa I’ve had. Good vegan choices aswell. I felt the service could have been a bit more passionate/knowledgeable about their offerings. I would defs come back & recommend you others.
