    Oh my goodness. The food is so flavoursome and serving sizes plentiful. Was a treat to return after a long absence (about 5 years). As good as I remembered.

    We had a set menu. I heard so much about this place but we think the food was pretty average. Don’t think we need to go back. Service was great though.

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
