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.
