We (4 of us ex Malaysians) chanced upon this lovely restaurant on our last day in Dublin, and decided to try it. It has a Malaysian chef, and the menu had quite a few selections. Altho there was a dinner special menu, we chose to have the beef rendang, Gulai (curry) mixed vegetables, and an Indian curry fish (sea bass). We also asked the staff serving us to inform the chef that we are Malaysians. We got a surprised starter of the fried popiah (more like a fried spring roll) on the house to start with, which was quite good.
All the other mains ordered were of original taste, each dish having its distinctive flavour and taste, with gravy that is not sugared nor thicken with starch (not uncommon in the UK Indian restaurants).. They all paired well with the steam coconut rice which was served with some peanuts, sliced fresh cucumber, two halves of boiled egg, and some sambal chilli. Like Nasi Lemak actually. Not wanting to waste the "remnant curry sauces of the main dishes we ordered a plain steam rice in addition to soak up the gravy. The rendang was a tad dry, and could have been a little spicier (for our taste) but would be acceptable for most Dublin locals.
While the prices are not at the budget end, they were reasonable for such a nice tastefully decorated decent restaurant that can claim to be authentically Malaysian, and with warm friendly service.

Langkawi had been recommended several times so I went for a business lunch recently. The nasi goreng was excellent and a generous lunch was very good value. Lovely service and a nice restaurant in a buzzing part of Dublin.

The name " Langkawi" reminds me of the beautiful idyllic island in Malaysia.
To find an authentic Malaysian restaurant in Dublin is like finding a hidden gem.
The restaurant setting is cozy and well decorated and the service is good.
We ordered the Malaysian delicacies that we knew back home, being Malaysians -
Nasi Lemak - fragrant coconut rice with dry chicken curry & condiments
Beef rendang - was an absolute 1st class dish of Langkawi - highly recommended
Satay - another Malaysian authentic dish not to be missed
The dessert - Sago pudding is also very good.
All in all , it was a satisfying and memorable dining experience, one that reminds of
HOME SWEET HOME..

We arrived 45 minutes before it opened and had nothing booked. They allowed us to take a seat outside in the sun and even brought us free nibbles and wine!
Meal was brilliant and staff extremely friendly..
Totally recommend it.
