Love this place, The food is yummy and its a very homey feel! It's always pack and I am happy they expand the location. The one across the street was really small and this big new place is better.

Closest thing to home

I grew up in Singapore and so far this is the closest thing to local Singaporean food I can get in NYC. This place is always crowded but tables turn around quite quickly so you don't have to wait that long. I used to frequent this place 4-6 times a month when I lived on Bowery and Grand. I recommend: Roti canai Bean sprouts with salted fish Young Tofu Prawn mee Char kway teow Kway teow thong Hainanese chicken with rice Crispy garlic chicken Malaysian spare ribs Fish head curry Fried kang kong with sambal Sizzling tofu. Service can be friendly (depends on the wait staff) and is super fast most of the time. Good for big groups- maybe not for a first date since your dinner will be over in less than an hour.

Cheap, Delicious, Nice Takeout Containers

So, it's pretty ugly, but at least it's 100% wood, so the space is at least cozy and warm feeling. Better than those unforgiving, harsh, fluorescent interiors that are the hallmark of some other Asian restaurants. Food is exactly what you want when you go for Malaysian, but they also have a really extensive menu. The Chow Keuh Teow and Indian Mee Goreng are both great, flavourful without being overwhelming (unlike the Prawn Mee, which is just too much craziness). When you get take out you get nice containers, which is nice- they're not the awful styrofoam kind. At lunch there is always a fleet of servers hanging out, they're not particularly attentive but at least you know that they are there and you can get their attention. Quantity may not be as good as quality, but it's better than indifference. Anyway, it's way better than the Italian place next door, and comes highly recommended by me, a person you do not know.

The food & price make up for the horrible decor. Must have the tasty chicken satay. Best Malaysian/asian food in NYC. The thin nan like bread w/ curry dipping sauce is a must! Fast service too eventhough may not get food all at same time.

MmmmmMmmmmMalaysian!

I'm a native Malaysian and I have to say the food is very authentic. This is the best Malaysian casual dining I've been to in NY. The atmosphere is always busy and somewhat noisy, typical of a successful Chinatown restaurant.
