Friendly warning! We're working hard to be accurate. But these are unusual times, so please check that venues remain open.
Judging by the flattering scrawls in the guestbook at this family-run restaurant, Malay House is a well-loved local that has served plenty of happy customers over the years. We were soon seduced by the whole operation – from the welcoming decor, with warm wood accents and beautiful batik prints, to the broad smiles that came with our food. Chicken and lamb satay were grilled to perfection, with a proper sauce heaving with crushed peanuts; less successful were spicy fish cakes, unpleasantly heavy and with a greasy exterior. Mains, beautifully presented, were agreeably authentic: a rich, coconutty beef rendang was mopped up with fluffy rice, while Penang char kway teow had an impressive smoky wok flavour, and was further improved by the addition of spicy-sweet sambal.
