One of my favorite restaurants in Sydney. The signature banquet never fails to disappoint. The only food that wasn’t eaten was what we couldn’t fit in! Very friendly and attentive service.

Been here many many times. V disappointed this time. Daughters food came out wrong and then came after an hour and only after we reminded them. Another dish came out with prawns (we were all vegetarian and clearly stated this).
Dear Sarju Thank you for leaving your review. We are very disappointed to hear that your latest meal did not live up to your previous experiences dining with us. There were some miscommunications between our floor staff and kitchen regarding your order and unfortunately they took a while to be discovered and rectified properly. We apologise. We hope to have you dine with us again soon. Regards

The Malaya was the perfect dinner spot for my group of 4! We celebrated an engagement and the staff were very attentive and friendly! They have a wide selection to choose from on the menu and all the dishes we chose were stunning and delicious. The cocktail selection was perfect and we had a great night!

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.

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
