Attended the Malaya on work trip. Haven’t been for a while but boy it did not disappoint. This is by far the best place to eat. I loved it. The service is always impeccable. Great value. Great food.

First time to the Malaya, but a staple for my business colleagues. Great food and wonderful view over Darling Harbour. Everything was flavorful and saucy - just the way I like it. The Eggplant was especially tasty.
