This was such a good find. Their chicken rice is amazing (breast is better than thigh here) Go at least once a week for their lunch specials. The chicken curry with roti is also a personal fave. Hahn always looks after us. Check it out.

We recently had dinner there with 4 other friends and enjoyed great Malaysian food. The food was enjoyed by all, the service was great and the prices for both food and wine was very acceptable.

It was a very hot day when my husband and I decided to go to Kopi Tim. It was our first visit there. The entrance itself is unwelcoming. I can't say anything better about the interior. The decor is very dated and rather poor. The huge red (and very dusty) wall looks terrible. All the components inside give this place... More

If you're looking for a reasonable priced lunch at $9.80, check out the lunch special menu at Kopi Tim. It is off Chinatown and serves a variety of Malaysia cuisine and desserts. I tried their Nasi Lemak with Beef Rendang - while the coconut rice was not fragrant enough, the beef Rendang was tender and juicy, the Ilan bills and... More

Best Laksa in Adelaide with out a doubt. Not the most visually appealing place but the food will blow your socks off. This was a regular meeting spot for us. Love this place.

First class authentic Malaysian dishes... it is hard to know what NOT to order.. Roti Canai is a good side dish... the Char Keow Teow wll take you to Penang... Okra Sambal is a winner... and even a simple Nasi Goreng will leave your mouth watering! The setting is clean, simple and relaxed.. I like it... It feels real!

Was there for dinner with partner on his extended biz trip. Just wanna eat something back home so we popped in this place. Food is ok cheaper than Papparich. Just the teh tarik is kinda pricy.

Kopi Tim is housed in an unassuming building along Gouger street, but this is the only unassuming aspect of this Malaysian Restaurant. The staff are friendly with the big surprise being the first class Malaysian Food on offer which is also served in decent helpings that also satisfy the most particular of Malaysian food afficionados. First Class in every way
