Tucked away in Ellerslie, Malaysia and Singapore Cuisine offers a plethora of Chinese Malaysian/Singaporean dishes. Not the best Malaysian/Singaporean restaurant in Auckland – but it is reasonably cheap and quick if you’re in a rush for lunch.
I’ve ordered the wat tan hor (flat rice noodles in egg gravy) and char koey teow – they are pretty tasty, but as I said – not the best in Auckland – just enough to do the job. Their lunch specials are worth checking out. At $8.90 a meal, it won’t burn a hole in your pocket, that’s for sure!
Great value for money!! Heaps food for so little price, I usually get enough leftover for lunch the next day. I would describe it as Malaysian food catering to non-Malaysian, not too sweet which is the way I like. The service was a bit slow when it first opened but now its fast and efficient, great for a quick bit or takeaway.
I’ve been there three times and each time it is the same result, the food is salty unless they change I don’t see a reason to go back
My husband and I decided to try the curry chicken and noodle dish, we enjoyed it. We noticed for a Tuesday night it was busy and it seems to be attracting a lot of people lately, we are keen to try some more different meals, it allows for customers to byo which is great as there is a wine shop across the road, meals are well priced affordable. We recommend to give it a try.
I’ve eaten at this place three times now (mainly because our favourite Malaysian place was closed that day) and at best, it’s okay.
The flavours and combinations aren’t entirely authentic: it’s as if your aunt, who isn’t a great cook, made dinner using store-bought pre-packaged sauces and seasonings which is okay…but quite different to having it authentically cooked at a hawker stall with a sweaty skilled chef efficiently working his wok over charcoal fuelled fire!!!
But if you’re looking for a quick and okay tasting meal which fills the puku, their $9 (or was it $11?) specials are a bargain!
Service was okay too. The manager lady and man was friendly. I can’t say the same for the aunty-looking chef/waitress though…
So, in short…it’s okay
Perhaps it’s okayness is simply because it sells itself as both Malaysian and Singaporean cuisine: What is Singaporean cuisine if not a healthier or more bland, depending on how you look at it, version of Malaysian food? Either way, not very exciting.
Some friends and I went for lunch and we tried different dishes as it’s our first time there. I tried the fried noodles but found that the noodles are not as nice and ‘crunchy’ as the other malaysian cafes at Selera or KKs. Also on the way to pay the bill at the reception, my friend peep into the kitchen area and found that it was not clean. Definitely not going there any more nor would recommend any one as well.
I eat here quite often as it’s close to work. The place is normally quite busy during the lunch rush. I’ve tried a few of the dishes and they are tasty and fresh and great value. Would recommend if you are in the area.
