A typical Kuala Lumpur food hall has about ten different counters, each specializing in a distinct regional cuisine. Jaya brings them all together in one hectic Chinese-run kitchen, decorated with an Asian beach theme. Fried noodles and noodle soups are uniformly fresh and hot, nasi lemak is nice and spicy, and the Singapore chow mai fun is worth repeat visits. At the end of the day, if it’s crispy pork intestines and canned soybean milk with grass jelly you’re craving, Jaya’s the place to get your fix.

It's a shame that there aren't more Malaysian restaurants in New York. Jaya does a pretty good job with the staples (beef rendang, etc) but the portion size and speed of service could be a lot better compared to the Chinese restaurants nearby. Still, it is one of the few places where you can get authentic Malaysian!
