Situated in the busy Cuba Street, this is one restaurant that you'll likely find very helpful. The meals are delicious and affordable, noticeably lower than other restaurants. And the service I received from the waiter was fantastic! It's a basic restaurant, nothing flash, but the food is good quality and good value.

Were looking for a cheap eatery on a cold wet night and found this gem. Very tasty food and the roti were made on the premises - the best I have had in NZ by far. Very friendly staff and good service. Two of us ordered two main and a starter to share - it was more than enough and... More

We were looking for warming food on a cold night - that wouldn't break the bank. This did it for us - mixed satay to start, 4 main dishes, and a couple of drinks - under $60 for 4.

In 2007, I came to Wellington to visit a friend. I had my first meal here and my last before I departed. Fast forward to 2010 when I moved here, and again, it was my first meal. That was the last time I ate here till today. I have order the same meal every time. Chicken Roti and curry. ($8.00)... More

Cheap and really, really good. If you don't want to spend much but still feel satisfied with your meal, then come here. I recommend the Dumpling Laksa and the spring rolls!

Popped in for a quick lunch. Great choices but we fancied the roti canai. Great tasty rotis and the curries that came with them (one chicken and one lamb) were very tasty. Could have done with a bit more meat and a bit less potato in my lamb curry but enjoyed it. Cheap for the center of Wellington.

Consistently good, well priced, friendly service. I love the wonton mee, dumpling laksa, gado gado, hokkien mee, nasi pattaya, the list goes on! while it does not have the style and panache of some of the more up market Malaysian places, it reminds me of actually eating in Malaysia. Eating here just makes me happy.

There are more than a few Malay style Cafes in Wellington but this is one of the best I recommend the Nasi Pattaya of the Beef rendang as being truly outstanding hard to recommend enough
