Good, but Small Portions 2/14/2010

yamwatiyam Provided by Partner
The atmosphere was friendly and we enjoyed our meal. I was just surprised to see such small portions, even for a noodle dish. For the Beef Rendang, I thought that it was more understandable to get a small portion of meat, since it was meat, which is expensive, but why so few noodles in the Char Kway Teow? The Char Kway Teow was good, though, I have to say. Pros: The Char Kway Teow Noodle dish was delicious. Cons: The Beef Rendang was dry and the portions unusually small. more

Little Malaysia is the real deal! 1/2/2009

Little Malaysia is my favorite budget-priced restaurant in Atlanta. I worked in Malaysia for over a month a couple years ago, so I have a good feel for what real Malaysian food is. I went to this New York Times-reviewed place called "New Malaysia" when in NY's Chinatown recently, yet Atlanta's own Little Malaysia is better! Both the appetiser as well as main dishes were superior. How often does Atlanta's best beat New York's best? Pros: THE AUTHENTIC MALAYSIAN FOOD! Cons: Atmosphere is admittedly basic (yet comfortable) more

Authentic food 7/26/2008

I'm not Malaysian, but I was born and raised in Singapore (and I have been to Malaysia a few times). The food here is really, really good and very authentic - as good as you can get outside of Malaysia. I go to Little Malaysia pretty often, and it has a very casual atmosphere and is family-friendly. The dishes I would recommend are kang kung belacan, Hainanese chicken rice, nasi lemak (different from Singapore, but good nonetheless). The fishball soup is not bad, but sometimes the quality of the fishballs varies - some times aren't as good as other times. The beef rendang is also good. Overall, good service, and great food! Pros: service, great food, family-friendly more

Best Malaysian Food in Atlanta 5/1/2008

Born and raised in Malaysia, so I know the authenthicity of the reminds me of home. Tried "Penang", although the restaurant is big and spacious with more menu selections, their food is not that good. Try Little Malaysia, it's the best I've tried so far. My fav is nasi lemak, belacan prawn and of course the curry and beef rendang....Yummy! Pros: Authentic Malaysian Food, inexpensive Cons: Parking more

Best Malaysian food so far 3/16/2008

I'm a Malaysian so I know Malaysian food. This is probably the most authentic Malaysian restaurant in Atlanta. I've been Penang, Asam House & Top Spice (Malaysian/Thai) and after reading reviews Malay & Satay House, I don't think I'll bother trying them out. My all time favourite meat dish is beef rendang (spicy but very tasty- best eaten with coconut rice). Favourite veg dish is kang kung belacan (also spicy). Hainamese chicken is pretty good (best eaten with "chicken rice", it might be called something else there). These dishes are good for sharing. However, if you're looking for a all-in-one meal, try the curry noodle soup and might I suggest that you ask for a mixture of both "bee hun" (or "mee hun"- rice noodles) and yellow noodle or you can say it like this "ka-li-mai-fun-min" (cantonese). And for desert, I love "Ice Kacang"(basically shaved ice with various ingredients at the bottom topped with syrup & milk). It's not as good as what I can find back home, but it's the best here. I'm sure there are other good dishes here but I have only had a few of their dishes so far. Other "must eat" Malaysian (if you were to go to Malaysia, the country) would be char kuay teow, nasi lemak, satay, roti canai, asam laksa etc... But I haven't tried the ones in Little Malaysia. Pros: Has most authentic food compared to other Malaysian restaurants, pretty decent service, clean. Cons: May have parking issues but not usually. Hidden in a strip mall. Can be noisy when busy but that's kinda authentic too :). more

Best hainamese chicken anywhere 1/11/2008

You can't go wrong with this restaurant. It has excellent dishes ranging from curry chicken to salt fish and chicken rice. My Malay friend enjoys sharing his Atlanta experiences with restaurants and this is one that we often come back to. It is never too busy to make me feel right at home, too, even though I'm only a tag-along. Try the "gah-lee-my-fan-min-cha-pleu" (curry noodle soup with seafood and tofu only and half rice noodles and half egg noodles). Their Basil Chicken dish has to be the best on the planet. It is not the ambience that brings me back, it's the great service, the familiar faces, and the excellent food. It's clean, bright and a happy place to eat lunch or dinner. Pros: Inexpensive, authentic, and delicious Malaysian cuisine Cons: Strip mall it's in sometimes is very crowded on the Weekend. more

Fresh and Distinctive Flavs 10/1/2006

wysokie Provided by Partner
You'll be pleasantly surprised with this non-descript looking little Buford Highway eatery. The fried calimari is an unexpected delight for an appetizer. The curries and noodles are tasty and filling. The service is pleasant too. Nobody is pushing you out here. Try some iced coffee afterwards while you linger and try to understand the strangely aggressive sounding Malaysian language. Pros: Flavors, Service Cons: Parking is a little tight more
