Overlooking Darling Harbour,The Malaya continues to maintain high standards,serving Malaysian food less commonly found than other SE Asian cuisines.
Thoroughly recommended are their crab curry(shelled and hot),their splendid chicken satay sauce and the salt & pepper tempura cauliflower and prawns.

I have had several visits over the years to this restaurant and have never been disappointed. On this occasion we were a group of 4 who had not caught up for a while and decided to make things easy and went for one of their menu combinations to share rather than individual meal orders. One of the best set menus I have enjoyed. Serving sizes and portions were to suit our 4 person group so no fighting over an odd number of salt & pepper prawns (excellent) or thier popiah pastry wraps (superb) or satay beef skewers (what a fantastic sauce). It was then time to share 5 mains and rice, all delectable with wonderful flavours. We had some good eaters in the group but the meal combo was adequate and filling for all. The restaurant also has an excellent dessert menu if you can fit it in, two of the group chose to share a tasting plate just to experience the wonderful presentation and tastes and raved about the black rice pudding. Service all night was of a high standard with pleasant and attentive staff. The restaurant has a good wine list and plenty of cocktails to please. Not cheap but a wonderful setting with open verandah in good weather looking across Darling Harbour and a good buzz throughout. Only complaint is the tables are a bit small for numerous plates but staff were helpful in arranging them. Bookings are recommended as this place is very popular.

I have been going to the Malaya for over 40 years, from its tiny place near Central and a few inbetween and at Kings Street Wharf, the food is even better, and it was brilliant before and the location a dream, absolute magic and service is always wonderful and the atmosphere super, will keep going forever, as am sure i am addicted to their curries and kwah du noodles and curry sauce
