This is our Favourite restaurant in Sydney. We have been coming for years and the food and service is always consistent- fabulous and delicious. We are always well looked after. Sarath and his team always serving with a smile and can never do enough. Whether we eat in or takeaway, the flavors are always amazing. Love coming to Sydney just so we can eat at The Malaya.

Service was not customer focus, waiters not explaining the dish or available during the evening. Food was OK but not equivalent to the no. Of set menus ordered.

The food is absolutely delicious, has one of the best wine lists around and the service is absolutely exceptional. My request for a table along the windows was granted and made for perfect evening.

The food and service was excellent. The atmosphere was great but a little noisy for us personally, the fireworks at Darling Harbour were awesome and we could see them from our table which was lovely.

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
