Happy to share that this is my favourite Malaysian restaurant. Been here on numerous occasions and always satisfied with the service and the delicious food. There is not one dish that I dislike.. in fact i love everything that our plates are always scraped clean craving for more.
Service is fantastic and so is the presentation. There is a big difference in standards when it comes to comparing between Chinta Ria and the Malaya. If you love chili / hot spicy food then you will loveee this place! Can be pricey as the Malaya is more on a slight fancier scale. The good thing is they have various banquets to choose from which come in different price ranges to suit everyone’s budgets.
