Restaurant is well-received by locals for authentic Malaysian fare
Claiming to serve some of the ‘finest Malaysian cuisine’ along Little Collins Street, a quick check on their Instagram page shows that they offer a panoply of local Malaysian favourites, including Banana Leaf Rice and even Nasi Minyak Ayam Merah for the Ramadan season this month.
The restaurant owners, who appear to also be Malaysians, have even taken it upon themselves to share local food culture here in Malaysia with Australians abroad through livestream sessions, with one featuring the Canai 15 Cafe located in Petaling Jaya’s SS15 neighbourhood where one of their chefs had formerly worked in.
Customer reviews have also been overwhelmingly positive, with the restaurant currently sporting a 4.5/5 star rating on Google reviews. Many have apparently praised the food as being authentically Malaysian.
