“Excellent South Indian food”
Review of Cafe Rasa Sayang

Cafe Rasa Sayang
Ranked #543 of 1,596 Restaurants in Perth
Cuisines: Indian, Malaysian
Restaurant details
Reviewed 15 January 2018

Don't expect a fancy restaurant, cutlery or service. What you will get is excellent food at a reasonable price served by friendly staff. This is probably the best Indian restaurant in Perth. It cannot be more authentic unless they get a cow or goat wandering through the restaurant.

I love their bryani rice and curry fish. I also tried their murtabak which is delicious. Their Teh Tarik seems to be authentic. I think their spicy is not too much. I found some other Indian restaurant having too much turmeric but not this restaurant. Their price is reasonable and staffs are friendly. For those of you who like Malaysian Indian food, I would recommend you to try this restaurant. They only serve halal foods.

I've been to Café Rasa Sayang many times with work colleagues until the last few months. I decided to take my wife on a we Saturday as I was craving the spices. And it was worth it. The place is always busy and has typically 8 or 10 curries made along with an assortment of rice and vegetables. Roti and other breads are made to order as are a variety of special dishes. We had two mains and two server of Roti bread with 3 different sources for $30, including side salads of spiced onions and pineapple.. Place if friendly and bustling - with tables turning over every 30 minutes or so and people happily waiting.

They are famous for their goat curry (bone in of course) which is hot, spicy and very satisfying. Their fish curry (hot and often whole fish is also popular). This time I had the lamb curry (always good) and my wife had a milder chicken Korma (still on the medium side of hot for wester tastes. She liked it and we will be back every few weeks when the craving for spices hits.

His food is more in the South Indian Malaysian food realm. Meaning lots of chillies, tamarind and curry pastes. The chef, Balan has brought his trade from Malaysia and provided a huge gap in Indian cuisine for Perth, which tends to favour North Indian food. His breads like Roti Canai, Roti Telur and Murtabak is 2nd to none in WA. His signature fish curry and dry curry (varuvel) for both lamb and chicken is real crowd's favourite. Constantly busy and consistently tasty.. kudos Balan.
