Love dining at Sri Puteri. The food here is sooo delicious….simple, no fuss but yet delicious!!! The nasi lemak with the prawn sambal is my favourite. Have been here several times and it has never disappointed. The lady at the counter is lovely too and very friendly. Took a Malaysian friend of mine to Sri Puteri a couple of weeks back and she rated the food very highly too. Recently tried the satay chicken and fried chicken and it was impressive! They offer some interestesting desserts too which is always a bonus. Would recommend Sri Puteri to anyone looking for an honest, inexpensive and delicious meal without the frills.
Throughout the years we have often ordered take aways from Sir Puteri’s, their food was always fantastic, however we noticed lately that the standard of the dishes has dropped.
Tosai which is doughy, Haianese chicken and Mee goreng tasteless.
I hope the standard of dishes will be bought back up as the Sri Puteri we remember, always great food and always moreish.
Stunningly good, refreshingly inexpensive, fresh, beautiful Malay and Tamil favourites served by friendly, welcoming, beautiful people. KK’s has the reputation as the best Malaysian in the city, and while they’re quite good, I think Sri Puteri edges them out.
Recommendations? EVERYTHING. Fine, then… roti canai, chicken fried rice w/salted fish, and masala dosa are the most common things we order. But try everything!
Food is great, standards have not dropped since last review.
Simple eatery but food standard is very good, decent selection and they also have specials which are off the menu so do ask.
Will be back.
The service was attentive, informative and friendly. The food was very tasty and the helpings were generous. We had Malak Mee Goreng and another dish with vermicelli noodles – was delicious.
We will go back regularly as the menu is extensive with a huge variety.
The food at this place is really yum and the standards have remained high. Highly recommend it for everybody who’s into tasty food at great prices. They will cater for all your needs…
I absolutely love Kay’s fish curry! The sauce is the best Ive ever tasted, simply divine. If you love mamak and south indian cuisine you will simply love dining at sri puteri. Not to mention, the staff are a super bunch. Who knew south auckland’s got it going on..Highly recommend, if you dont believe me then why not try it out yourself..happy dining guys.
Sri Puteri’s is one of the gems of Sth. Aucks.
We eat here once a month, the curries are incredible.
They also do the best Chicken Satay in town, if that’s your thing ( my mrs loves them ).
Try the specials they will blow you away..
mmm stingray asam.
Best Nasi Lemak around imo. And cheap as chips.
What a fantastic place! The Briyani served here at Sri Puteris is absolutely first class. Packed with flavours and spices, this dish is a total pleaser! We also tried a beautiful snapper fish curry, I dont know how you do it Kay, all i can say is TOP NOTCH!
Jay’s Mamak Mee Goreng is delicious, the combination of flavours in the dish displays his deft skill and prowess as an accomplished chef.
Thanks to the friendly staff, the personal touch was there which is something you dont find as often today.
I am looking forward to my return visit and am very happy to recommend it to everyone.
I went here with a friend specifically because of the other great reviews on here. We started with the papadams which were some of the lightest and tastiest I’ve had. Quite happy to eat these by themselves. For the main I had the nasi lemak with the beef rendang and it was top drawer. My friend had the lemak though with the prawn and it was a bit fishy and not nearly as good as the beef. The service was excellent and everyone was very friendly.
I would love to try the other meals here and look forward to visiting again. I will be recommending it to others.
This food is simply the best! We’ve had many an excellent meal here, and absolutely no complaints about the quality.
The decor is ‘cheap and cheerful’, but look beyond that to find a gem in Panmure.
The staff are excellent, always so helpful and even willing to tweak our meals when we ask (EG. ask for the fried rice to be spicy, and Jay (chef) will throw in some chillies to give it that extra kick).
A happy and helpful team lead by Kay, a welcoming place we will continue to frequent.
Amazing flavours! Had heard about this place from other reviews and tried it tonight, and we were not disappointed. The stingray in assam sauce and the satay was fantastic for the chicken skewers as a starter. We also ordered beef rendang which was pretty good. Had very friendly service too.
We fancied a nice curry with a twist… so we came here. It was Saturday lunchtime, and the idea was we’d takeaway and eat in a park, as the weather was so beautiful… however, when we got there, the table out the front was in full sunshine, so we opted to eat in.
The people were friendly and very welcoming, and the food was fantastic! Our favourite dish was “Kay’s Chicken Curry”: the menu online said “… cooked with potatoes in rich and awesome Malaysian spices and curry leaves. Will touch all parts of your tastebuds.” which was true. It was FABULOUS!
We had 2 pieces of Roti, which we all fought over as it was so delicious.
Also fabulously good, was the Masala Thosai “flat rice flour pancake stuffed with potatoes and mixed vegetables served with dhal and fresh coconut chutney”.
The Coconut chutney with the Masala Thosai was really good. What a great flavour combo.
The Masala Thosai would have been a great choice for our preschooler, if I could have convinced her to eat anything other than the roti that she filled herself up on! The Thosai was not “hot” at all, and the flavours were delicious.
Interesting to note newspaper cuttings adorning the window, of Sri Puteri’s owner/chef with chef Peter Gordon too. Rather a good affirmation of the quality and authenticity of the Malaysian cuisine here.
In summary, we had fabulous meal that all three of us thoroughly enjoyed.
Unassuming, yet exceptional malaysian cuisine on a street filled with competition. A local favourite that is always busy. Great for takeaways. We had the Rendang and Seafood Laksa, standard dishes that did not disappoint.
We love Sri Puteri. Unpretentious, simple and affordable. The mamak mee was yum… even the ‘ying yong’ dish tasted fantastic (and it wasn’t even cooked by a Malaysian Chinese!). The lady owner was friendly too, spending time talking to us and telling us more about the history of the restaurant. Now that’s a businesswoman who knows how to engage with her customers!
Would definitely come back to try more dishes!
For a malay who’s lived here for the past 22 years,Sri Puteri has definitely taken off in the right direction with the new owners’. Chef Jumari is an excellent Chef producing authentic Malay food and true Malaysian cuisine.
Try the Penang Koay teow and prawn noodle soup (both my favourite)and finish off with either the cendol or ABC. Good service overall.
such an improvement since it changed management! the waitress was so friendly and smily and switched on. very good tea tarik…creamy and not too sweet. My roti canai was good! and had a little chat to the cook, he was so cool ^^ oh and affordable…must try the satay next
Truly authentic Malaysian cuisine at very reasonable prices. Has the best satay sauce ever in New Zealand. This is a place where you can get a huge bowl of Asam Laksa for the same price of having a meal in a foodcourt.
Also love the Ice Kachang or ABC and Chendol. Yep, they have that too. Friendly atmosphere too.
9 April 2011 the NZ Herald voted it best Malaysian restaurant in Auckland!!
“Mamak-style Malaysian food comes courtesy of the southern Indian Muslim traders of the 14th century. With a popular combination of Indian and Malay flavours the food is cooked from scratch every day for authentic hawker flavours and owner Kay will happily give you your favourite twist on a dish.”
We went there that night and had a great meal. Cheap & cheerful. It is BYO, formica tables, friendly staff and great food. 1 starter, 2 mains $38 all up! We will be back on a regular basis
Great cheap food, very tasty! Best Laksa in Auckland
Chicken curry laksa and the lamb curry set meal plus ABC for desert it’s totaly awsome, new management with wonderful makeover and the owner is kinda friendly. For those who are Malaysians you will feel like your are back in Malaysia.
We eat there at least once a week, for the past 3 years, authentic food, good nasi Lemak, good cosy atmosphere, child friendly, owner is out the front, greets customers,.
