Drove past and verified that a new restaurant call Smile has taken over the site. No news of previous owners although I expect they are still taking orders for Malaysian cakes and catering from home. Mrs Lim who rang the original Nyonya Hut still operates her new restaurant in Donvale.

I've driven past this place numerous times and has been wanting to give it a try. Finally had a chance today only to be disappointed. One of my passion is cooking. The other passion is to hunt for good food. To cut the long story short, we arrived at the restaurant at around 6.05pm and was promptly seated. We stared... More

this place has now moved to Donvale ... friendly owner and friendly staff ... comfortable and spacious place ... authentic and delicious Nyonya food without compromise in ingredients and flavours ... tried their curry laksa noodles, prawn noodles with pork lard, special fried rice and finishing off with cendol and ondeh-ondeh ... a must-try place for Malaysians who love Nyonya...

Got served right away and ordered starters (Lor Bak and Chicken Satay); and mains curry chicken; lamb korma; sambal fish; and coconut rice. The waitress was a trainee however we were not offered water; the sauce for the Lor Bak came after we had finished it. Some... More

This restaurant was very so friendly and cosy. It is quite small and very unpretentious but the food was delicious. We were told by some Malaysian ladies who dined near us that the food was very authentic and they ate there regularly. Can't substantiate that but it was certainly generous and delicious. The waiter was happy to explain the dishes... More

Disclaimer - I have not eaten in, but as it recently moved to my locality, I have tried to work my way through the menu with takeaway. Menu is very promising - extensive, sounds authentic, great variety. But we have found them inconsistent in standard and just misses the mark in a lot of ways. I got a pandan nasi... More

This restaurant has moved from Waverley to Donvale, at the intersection of Mitcham and Springvale Roads. Seafodd Curry Laksa was to die for as was the Char Kway Teow. The owner is very friendly as are the staff. Very reasonably priced and simply a great feed.

Located on a small strip of shops on Blackburn Road, it is a cozy corner eatery. We come here for lunch often when we have a hankering for authentic street hawker food. Tastes like what one would expect in Malaysia or Singapore. You must try their selection of kway- especially the Ang Ku Kway. Buy some to take home after... More

I have eaten at the Nyonya hut a few times and can highly recommend it. The food is very authentic and at a great price. It reminds you of cafe's in Malaysia, there is great atmosphere and you know that it is family owned and run. It is BYO and they only charge $1 corkage, which is more than fair.... More

Mrs Lim has sold and the new owner has taken over about 6 months ago. The food is of a better standard and the service friendly. If you were a fan of Mrs Lim oriental cakes, you are now in heaven as the cakes now are the best. In general, a good family restaurant who serves up a tasty meal.... More
