Having grown up in Malaysia I'm always looking for tastes from my childhood. I had the curry Ayam selangor with a side of roti and it was delicious. Staff were extremely friendly and efficient. Great all round experience.

Love the food. Ordered a selection of dishes and enjoyed them all. Best Chilli Beef in town! Lamb curry, shantung chicken and roast duck were all delicious. Keep coming back to this place because it is consistently delicious. Extensive menu, fast service and very reasonable prices. Tony and family are very welcoming.

Would like to come back and try some more of the Malaysian cuisines. Service is good. Tried kungpo chicken and tofu on another visit. Was good. Value for money. 3.5*

If you want good tasting Malaysian food at reasonable prices, Rasa Sayang is the place. Tony, the Manager and Head Chef is an excellent cook and always takes the time to ask you "How was your meal ?"

Putting hokien noodles and some sliced chicken into a gluggy sickly sweet coconut curry sauce and calling it a Laksa does not a Laksa make. And naming a pile of cooked beanshoots, fried tofu puffs and tin pineapple covered in sweet red sauce gado gado is simply a joke. Never again.

I tried Rasa Sayang last Saturday on long weekend. The place is full book but they manage to let us - group of 5 in with a 10 mins wait. We ordered 4 dishes, when we wanted to order extra, they said we need to wait like 30 mins. A bit disappointed with that but because they are busy on... More

Friendly and courteous staff. Food was average. We ordered chendol which was very good but the spinach belachan was below average.
