$10 for three dishes and rice, you are guaranteed a tasty and filling feed. Proper home cooking, just ask for advice on spice levels.

Good location and affordable for students but I won't say that it is particularly tasty. As a Malaysian, the Malay food tastes authentic to me. But tbh, the dishes were too salty. Very average Malay food I'd say. There are many Malay/Malaysian restaurants in Melbourne that are better. But if you just want a cheap eat to fulfil your craving... More

I frequent Nosiah's everytime I forget my lunch at home or I've got a hankering for a good Malay curry. You won't be disappointed :)

I have been to Norsiah's kitchen often when I worked in Carlton and when I am nearby. It is packed at meal times. It has lovely curries n a fairly standard range of pre cooked dishes. You get a very satisfying meal for less than $10

If you are looking for a resturant which offers value for money meals (halal) then you have come to a right place. meals cost from $6 - $7.50 and allows you to select from chicken, beef, lamb and veggie curries along with rice.

The beef curry - some were tender but some were hard and dry (over cooked). The vegetables I had were half... More
