Few days ago I went with friends to the “Tamarind Hill” in uptown New Westminster. Although I have been living in that area for quite a while, I have never visited that restaurant.
When we went it was a bit busy: Despite some tables were free we had to wait some time until we got seated.
The interior is rustic but pretty dark. Despite it was not full and there were many servers, it took quite a while until we were able to catch the attention of a server to place the order. We ordered Roti Canai (since we were 3 people we had to order 2+1 pieces whereas the additional piece cost as much as a single piece order), Sambal Beef with Asparagus, Nyonya Chicken Kung Pow and Okra, Eggplant & Green Bean Trio in Sambal Chilli along with Coconut Rice. Unfortunately, they didn’t offer Kuih Dadar – my favourite dessert and standard to compare the quality of restaurants.
We all agreed that the food was not so great, in some cases even disappointing. And the prices were not low…
This restaurant didn’t impress us at all.

Stopped here for dinner tonite. My wife and I had a starter of roti. Deliciously hot with a mild curry sauce which was great for dipping. She had the mee goreng which was a large portion and tasty. I opted for the Malaysian laksa which was sizeable and had a very flavourful coconut curry broth. Both dishes were listed as medium spice on the menu but we both opted for a mild spice. The service was quick and the atmosphere was very nice. Well worth a visit if you're feeling like Malaysian and you're in the area.

We went here for dinner. It had a nice decor in typical south East Asian style. We ordered the parotha appetizer, which was tasty. For the main course, we had the sambal prawns and the beef rendang. The prawns were especially good. The cocktails were very good too. The service was friendly.

Don't come here if you're expecting to be served a few drinks with your meal. The food was ok, nothing to write home about; but the service was terrible. I won't be returning unfortunately.
