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

Taste bud bonanza! My partner and I booked a table for two at the Malaya last Sunday night (26 May). This was my first time, yet it will not be my last. The service was impeccable, the food was divine and the views were to die for (we attended during Vivid- the light show was an extra treat). We had the signature dish menu banquet and could not find a fault with anything! Perfect Master Chef cooking quality. All of the staff were amazing, yet we give special thanks to the lovely Denny, as she her client interaction and service was floor-less.
Hi, We are so pleased to hear you enjoyed The Malaya experience. I will be sure to let Jenny know of your wonderful feedback. Looking forward to having you dine with us again soon. Regards Management

We really love the food here, it being very tasty, well presented and with the menu offering many different dishes that we haven't seen elsewhere. Our #1 favourite is the Szechuan Eggplant which is amazing. We chose this at our first visit here & have never forgetten it since. One of the main reasons we keep on returning to this restaurant, in fact, is to have their Szechuan Eggplant again.
Hi, Thank you for your feedback. We are delighted to hear you enjoy the consistency of our food and service. Looking forward to having you dine with us again soon. 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
