We were a small group of 7 for a business dinner. Very good selection of wines and spirits. The menu has plenty to choose from and the quality is excellent. We ordered a wide variety and had plenty to share. This has become our favourite dining spot in the area.

The noise is so bad for hearing a normal conversation. The spring rolls/satay was very dry. The beef rendang was chewy and not nice/ the kung po pork had a packet of normal peanuts. Very dissapointing. Never again.

We turned up without a booking on a busy Saturday evening and nearly didn't enter due to the rather drab net curtained exterior and residential surroundings - it looked like a corner shop. That would have been a BIG mistake! They squeezed us in without any fuss and the food was the best Asian cuisine we've had since moving from... More

Tucked away at the back of North Camp this is well worth a visit. The flavours and taste are similar to quality cuisine in London but on a residential street in Hampshire. The family run restaurant service is exceptional. Great crispy wan tong and this restaurant makes every effort to sustain the Asian flavours.

Malacca has been our local restaurant to go to whenever there is a celebration or an occasion. The staff are very welcoming and friendly. Customer service is top notch. We always order Chicken lettuce wrap and Malacca combination for our starters alongside other starters. Never disappointing. For main, we always order steamed sea bass.. Just talking about it makes my... More
