My wife is vegetarian and we were celebrating our anniversary. The staff were lovely, the ambience suprisingly intimate for such a large venue and the range and quality of the food was extraordinary. Special mention must go to the Szechuan eggplant.
Hi Michael, Thank you so much for your feedback. We are so pleased to hear you and your wife had a memorable anniversary dinner. I will pass on your kind words to our wonderful team. Regards The Malaya Management Team

Food acceptable but relatively overpriced
Hi Tessa, Thank you for your feedback. We appreciate your feedback on our pricing, however we use only the highest quality ingredients and this does come at a cost. We do hope you enjoyed the Sambol, that brought back so many memories of your early days dining at George Street. Regards Management

One of my favourites restaurants. Went there with some friends from out of town. Lovely waitress but she didn't write down the order, which is always a red flag. Of course things didn't go to plan, but the situation was handled really well and a substantial discount was provided without even asking, so definitely restored my faith in this awesome place. Recommendation: write down orders. Human error happens, and there's no shame in writing down an order.

One of my favourite restaurants. Amazing food. Always tend to have their Signature Banquet. It's fabulous. Highly recommended.

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
