We were pleased that we arrived early enough to have a table for two in this large restaurant for a quick delicious meal. The restaurant, which serves authentic Malaysian food, is conveniently located in Northbridge close to safe parking and walking distance from the Perth railway station. It was a delight to meet the two hard working young restaurant owners... More

Hawker's Cuisine has been my favourite go-to place for Malaysian/Singaporean hawker food - even more so now that they have moved to a larger and more comfortable venue. My personal recommendations would be the chye poh omelette (fluffy eggs; not too salty at all), coffee ribs (cut into small pieces and with fragrant coffee aroma), seafood tofu soup, sambal fried...

Clean flavours, top quality ingredients, authentically Malaysian. Try the Combination Ho-Fun - it is the best I have ever had anywhere in the world. Absolutely STUNNING. You can taste the freshness. For those who don't know what it is - it is the Malaysian Chinese style gluten-free "creamy" fettucine-like scorched thick rice noodles (called Ho-Fun or Hor Fun) done in... More

Been to this restaurant many times in last 10 years and always leave extremely satisfied. We always order Fuzhou Tofu, any dish cooked with Sambal, any dish cooked with Assam, etc. - and the standard is always superb! Highly recommended restaurant!

Every dish we ordered here was tasty! The restaurant was busy and that's a good sign. Service was just like any other Chinese restaurant quick, efficient and impersonal. Eat here if you're on a budget and looking for authentic food.

We always been here for our gathering dinner, birthday celebrations and so on. This isn't a best place but it is better than most of the Asian restaurants. Don't ever missed this place if you're here in Perth.
