    Very friendly and professional welcome. Thank you for seating us at a window table as requested????. So many great choices from the menu, fabulous roti. Chicken satay was cooked beautifully but sadly satay sauce was disappointing as lacked flavour. Warm and friendly service and great view. Glad we tried The Malay after not been for many years.

    We always love The Malaya! The food and service are consistently top notch. We always get the signature set menu, everything on it is excellent.

    Great food as always. The male who met us upon arrival was a bit arrogant, so a bit disappointed, given my family has been frequenting the ‘Malaya’ since 1975

    The food at The Malaya is always fantastic. We had the Vegetarian Banquet for 2 and it was huge. The winner is the eggplant - just amazing. We would go back and have just that! The service was lovely as always. Thank you for making our wedding anniversary a bit more special.

    Food was spectacular, full of flavour! Staff were friendly with a lovely water view. The restaurant was quite loud but bustling with people, and i am not surprised why.

    My favourite Sydney restaurant. Never had a bad meal. Flavours are fabulous, staff are always attentive. Beef rendang....yum.... Great for business lunches, romantic dinner for two or a family get together

    Another great banquet at Malaya. Busy Thursday night, so very noisy (expected) and often hard to get waiters' attention. Everything on the menu was excellent except the noodles which are pretty bland and a real letdown after all the amazing dishes that came beforehand. All of our party agreed that the banquet would be perfect if they scrapped the noodles (there's already a lot of food) and replaced them with a nice dessert to finish off the menu on a high... Instead of the current anticlimax.

    The food was all delicious. Highly recommend the signature tasting menu - a great way to have a variety of food when there is only two people. Service was friendly and attentive.

About the restaurant

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
