Description: For more than 30 years, Satay House restaurant in London���s Paddington has been attracting lovers of Malaysian cuisine from all over the capital and across the globe. Satay House Malaysian restaurant was given a rejuvenating makeover in 2006 by the designers of Wagamama so it now sports cheerful orange feature walls with hibiscus flower stencils, sleek leather upholstery and pools of warm light. Despite the name, the food isn���t just about ���meat on sticks���, though Satay House���s satay is likely to be the best in the city. Certainly the restaurant is a home-away-from-home for ex-pat Malaysians and there are regular visits from the Malaysian royal family. Large portions of fiery sambal and traditional rending curries offer the perfect opportunity to eat ���Hidangan style���, or sharing with the rest of your table as in traditional Malay culture. All food served at Satay House is certified Halal and the soft beverages include several intriguing Malay offerings.

“Great food and good service”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 5 April 2012

Went here as it seemed the best choice that is in walking distance of Paddington. The food was excellent, well cooked and only took minutes. My first experience of "authentic Malysian" but definitely not my last.

“So much like home cooking.”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 21 March 2012

Being Malaysian, I was sceptical about eating Malaysian food in London. I have eaten at a number of such restaurants, and have often felt that something was missing. But not at Satay House. Try the Kwai theaw. It is almost as if you are eating it at some food stall in KL. Also the beef rendang and the fish curry. Am definitely going back.

“Great Little Place.....................”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 17 March 2012

We enjoyed Satay House. Booked ahead which is advisable, friendly welcome, quick service and great Malaysian food. Lots of locals eat there, always a good sign. Time they replaced menus though - so tatty you wonder whether food is going to be the same when it arrives (luckily it wasnt!)................................................

“Amazing food experience”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 20 February 2012

My first Malaysian food experience, and it was fantastic !
The place is quickly crowded, so be sure to reserve your table upfront. The menus are great to discover the many flavors the malaysian food can offer.

“Good service, great food, and value for money”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 17 February 2012

Found this with the trip advisor app. read the others reviews and loved the food.

Service was good, went with the set menu as recommended in the review by " algray " -
and was not disappointed - we had menu B for the four of us, never having been to a Malay restaurant, and where glad we did.

only issue is there was no menu outside to give a clue on the price of the food.
