On entering the aroma of the place was a little off- putting but once we got used to it (which took a while) we settled down to enjoy our meal. We opted to order different dishes which we all shared. The food was varied & great from Nasi Goreng through various beef & chicken curries.

I've been dining here for well over 15 years. This Malaysian restaurant is an institution on K' Road, a stayer in an often changing strip of cafes, bars and clubs - for obvious reasons. It's well priced and well worth a visit. Highly recommended if you want to escape the over priced cafe and restaurant scene of nearby Ponsonby Road.

An outstanding wee gem of a restaurant tucked away in plain view on K'Rd. Wonderfully authentic Malay cuisine with good vegetarian adaptations on the lunch menu, should this be a requirement. I do suggest making a booking for lunch as this is really a very popular lunch venue. Great value, marvellous food, you can't go wrong!!

Terrific variety as expected, all dishes can be shared and every one we ordered was delicious, way above other higher-priced places - and the added bonus is it's BYO! Lovely hosts, the business at night is testament to how good this place is, with very reasonable K Rd prices. An extremely enjoyable, and "comfortable", dining experience. Only negative is that...

My sister in law and her partner insisted we went here on our visit from the UK. It is nothing much to look at with a very basic interior. However, from the first welcome from Angie to the smell of the food wafting out you sensed it was going to be good. BYO means you can't complain about the drink... More

The interior was much nicer than we expected from a small restaurant. Although we didn't have a reservation, we got a seat pretty quick. We ordered from the alacart menu and were disappointed. We had beef, chicken and fried tofu but all the dishes came in exactly the same sauce and pretty much tasted exactly the same just with the... More

I have been here a few times with family when returning back to Auckland to visit friends and family. The food is amazing. Fresh, plentiful and delicious. The staff are a delight. So friendly. A great menu with lots to choose from. BYO. Of all the fabulous restaurants in Auckland, Sri Pinang is always on my list to come too.
