Had $61 menu; fist courses were great then just got too hot spicy to enjoy.
Hi, Thank you for your feedback. A majority of our menu contains spice. Should you have wished to have swapped any of the main dishes on the Malaya Banquet Menu when ordering, we would have been more than happy to do so. Regards Management

I loved that they remembered the comments I had written as part of my booking around it being a lunch for mine and my husband's wedding anniversary. Our waiter congratulated us and wished us a good rest of the day for our anniversary - it was something that had us both feeling very good and looked after by the restaurant staff.
Hi, Thank you for your feedback. We are pleased to hear your waiter went above and beyond to make your anniversary day so special. We have a wonderful team of staff who do an outstanding job day in and day out. I will be sure to pass on your kind words to them. Regards Management

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
