Malaysian Satay Hut--Great Hainese Chicken 4/12/2006

I haven't tried any other Malaysian restaurants in the Seattle area except the Malaysian Satay Hut. The service is not exceptional or anything, but the food is definitely very flavorful. My favorite dishes there are the Hainese Chicken (steamed chicken with soy sauce and cucumber), the String Beans (comes with shrimp and sautéed in shrimp and chili paste), and of course the roti (a version of nan bread, but a bit lighter and thinner, served with curry on the side). If you like sweet and sour dishes, try their shrimp with mango, served in a mango. The food there is pretty consistent, I don't think I remember any bad dishes there. The downside? Like any other good restaurants out there in the ID, it just gets very crowded during then lunch and dinner rush. They also have another location in Bellevue and I if you can beat the crowd, I highly recommend this place! more

Good pick for a quick lunch/dinner 11/29/2005

Very nice, great for a quick fulfilling lunch/dinner. I like their Roti Canai and Curry Beef. more

Has one of my favorite dishes of all time 10/7/2005

I've never been to the Seattle location, so I can't say anything for the staff or decor. However, the Malay Satay Hut chain has one of my favorite dishes ever, the Hot and Spicy Tofu. My mouth waters just thinking about this dish. They have a decent vegetarian selection, but I rarely eat anything other than the hot and spicy tofu. more

Amazing Restaurant - Don't Mind The Location 8/18/2005

Malay Satay Hut is one of my favorite restaurants in Seattle. I can have old standbys or try something radically new off the menu and I am always extremely pleased with the dishes. When trying something radically new, this is a pretty literal statement; the Satay Hut prepares very authentic Malaysian cuisine, much of which can be very strange to the foreign palate. But get over your fears, it's all delicious. To get started without getting ridicuolously adventurous, try the roti, mango chicken/tofu/shrimp (served in actual mangoes!), the salt and pepper baby squid, or my personal favorite, the Buddhist Yam Pot. The BYP is a bowl made of fried taro filled with a delectable mixture of chicken, shrimp, and vegetables in a light sauce (also available vegetarian). Eggplant in basil sauce is also amazing. Portions are substantial and its best to eat family style. The waitstaff is attentive and friendly, but may have trouble explaining what something is in English. But fear not as there are lots of great pictures in the menu! The place will look completely sketchy from the outside to most people as it is in a dingy strip mall on the outskirts of the International District. Don't worry, it's plenty clean and pleasant once you're on the inside. more

Unique Malasian Tastes! 6/24/2005

Malay Satay Hut hits the spot. A unique mix of Asian and Indian foods this small restaurant will please many palates. The appetizers are excellent and there is a wide variety of tofu dishes and excellent vegetable dishes that aren't just typical sides for the vegetarians. They always have a speials board with new things to try as well. The 'dry curry' is not dry but perfectly saucey without being goopy. You can get mango chicken (shrimp or tofu too) served in a mango shell. The 'Hokkien Mee' is an excellent noodle dish with everything that you would want! There are big round tables for groups and small intimate tables for date night. Also, great for takeout. A welcome change from typical Chinese or Thai food. more
