There are not many Malaysian restaurants in Perth let alone good ones like this. This restaurant has been around a while. It used to be located in the Chinatown area but relocated to a bigger premises. The decor is not impressive but the restaurant is spacious, bright and clean. The restaurant is always busy and they open till quite late.... More

Clean flavours, top quality ingredients, authentically Malaysian. Try the Combination Ho-Fun - it is the best I have ever had anywhere in the world. Absolutely STUNNING. You can taste the freshness. For those who don't know what it is - it is the Malaysian Chinese style gluten-free "creamy" fettucine-like scorched thick rice noodles (called Ho-Fun or Hor Fun) done in... More

Been to this restaurant many times in last 10 years and always leave extremely satisfied. We always order Fuzhou Tofu, any dish cooked with Sambal, any dish cooked with Assam, etc. - and the standard is always superb! Highly recommended restaurant!

Every dish we ordered here was tasty! The restaurant was busy and that's a good sign. Service was just like any other Chinese restaurant quick, efficient and impersonal. Eat here if you're on a budget and looking for authentic food.

We always been here for our gathering dinner, birthday celebrations and so on. This isn't a best place but it is better than most of the Asian restaurants. Don't ever missed this place if you're here in Perth.

We've been here a number of times, and each time is to try something different in their vast menu. Satay sticks, fried kuay teow, mee goreng, laksa, are some of the ones we tend to order regularly (for kids, when they like something, it is wise to stick to it!). Service is prompt, food is quickly brought out, and we've... More

I've been a regular customer for many years. Large servings and affordable prices (plus great, tasty food). There are a few big tables for groups of 12, but make sure you book. Service can be rushed when they are busy, but it just adds to the authentic atmosphere. Well worth a visit.

Hawker's Cuisine specialises in Chinese favorites, and is very good at servicing large groups and many tables. All the staff wear headsets - and everyone is very attentive.
