I ate here for the first time with two friends the other week - the only positive thing is that the staff are very friendly and nice. I am from Malaysia, and I can say that I was terribly disappointed with the food. We ordered some chicken and beef satay for starters with some squid in chilli and I have not tasted such poor quality in a very long time. The chicken and beef was very dry and didn't taste fresh at all, nor did the squid taste of anything. The peanut sauce for the satay had the thickest layer of oil I have ever seen! The mains we had was not much better, we ordered a laksa, and a mee goreng and a char kway teo noodle, and the laksa was so so, but the mee goreng and char kway teo was absolutely awful - have never tasted mee goreng that tastes like that before! My friend left most of it, and I didnt eat more than half of my char kway teo - it had no resemblance whatsoever to the real thing! The food was disappointing to say the least and is not authentic tasting at all!!! As a Malaysian, I really wish restaurants wouldn't serve dishes that they cant cook since Westerners will try it and get the wrong impression of Malaysian cuisine. I have been eating at Satay House in Paddington for years but I thought I would try something different for a change; wish I hadn't...
