We went there based on the reviews. Service was good. Food was okay . Depending on the dishes you order, serving size differs. It was still good to share between the two of us. ( we had chicken rendang, prawn kerabu, kang kong & rice). However, they did not have any 'local' M'sian drinks. Just the usual wine etc . Overall its a nice place to dine. Spacious restaurant. We do plan to go there again to try the fish curry and some different dishes.

The Malaya never disappoints with their fresh produce and beautifully spiced curries. Great cocktails, wine and a beautiful view of the harbor also accompany their food. The manager is very attentive with us.

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
