Take a former printing factory, keep the machines and put some tables inbetween. Add a asian flavoured menu and you have Malacca Too. There is the nice touch of having a bookstore/cafe in the same building. The food has some thai/malay/indonesian classics. Nice experience if you are into something less conventional.

This place had really lovely Asian food. It's situated in a nice old industrial building in the LX Factory (which is also a nice area). They offer a wide variation of Asian dishes. Especially the soups were amazing. Also the staff was friendly. If you walk in you can smell the quality already.

This place has a lot of great food and plenty of vegan options. It's located in the same building as the bookstore/library, which is definitely worth a visit, and you literally sit in between the old printing presses. This gives a very nice atmosphere and nicely divided the restaurant in cosy compartments. The service is very friendly and speaks decent... More

The food was amazing, the location is great in those old factories, the place itself is located in an old print factory and they even kept some of the old machines. I went back for a second time and ordered different food and it was delicious as well.

It was a welcome change to the bad food we had the previous evening. We enjoyed the food, very friendly service and excellent beer. I would highly recommend the place. The place is located in the hip LX Factory industrial area - a must see for those on the way to Belem Towers.

This restaurant is situated on the very hip terrain of LX Factory. The area is a must visit when in Lisbon. And when you're there, eat here! It's so cool, you'll be enjoying nice asian food in this former printing company! They left all the printing presses intact, and placed their seats and tables around those. Love it! As I... More

Crab dish was amazing and both "Massa de arroz com camarao" e "Caril vermelho" were very good. You could see starters were home made, such as Gyosa. ;) Creative space located in an ancient printing firm (topografia in portuguese).

Set in an old factory in the LX factory area, this humming Asian/Oriental restaurant retains all the presses and many photographs from its former life as a printers. Service is dedicated, swift and attentive. Prices are very reasonable - €9,50 for lunch menu. We ate aubergine with rice (delicious) and chicken and rice. The choice of puddings included passion fruit... More

i had lunch in this pretty cool place. It´s inside the industrial complex and still has lots of mashines in it (check the bar!). Every day they have a small menu for less than 6 euros. The food was very good and the waiter was super nice. The selfmade tea was okay
