The place is in a nice area, the atmosphere is nice but not too formal. Perfect for a solo dinner - quiet, casual, relaxed. The food was amazing - honestly the best curry I've ever had. Prices are very good, too. Would go back anytime...More

There used to be a wonderful Malaysian restaurant in Dering Street called The Satay Stick. It was so authentic they would warn you not to eat certain assam dishes as they were generally too hot for the uninitiated. It closed about twenty five years ago...More

For more than 30 years, Satay House restaurant in London���s Paddington has been attracting lovers of Malaysian cuisine from all over the capital and across the globe. Satay House Malaysian restaurant was given a rejuvenating makeover in 2006 by the designers of Wagamama so it now sports cheerful orange feature walls with hibiscus flower stencils, sleek leather upholstery and pools of warm light. Despite the name, the food isn���t just about ���meat on sticks���, though Satay House���s satay is likely to be the best in the city. Certainly the restaurant is a home-away-from-home for ex-pat Malaysians and there are regular visits from the Malaysian royal family. Large portions of fiery sambal and traditional rending curries offer the perfect opportunity to eat ���Hidangan style���, or sharing with the rest of your table as in traditional Malay culture. All food served at Satay House is certified Halal and the soft beverages include several intriguing Malay offerings.
