We've been to this restaurant a few times and always enjoyed ourselves. Last night we had a craving for Martaback and knew that Hut & Soul have a great one. We wanted to do a few things different this time by trying a couple of...dishes we haven't sampled before. We can never go past the Malaysia Roti and Martabak (lamb this time, not beef) which were both very tasty. The Char Kway Teow was great. Plenty of flavour and the added texture of pork crackling set the dish apart from other versions we have tried at other restaurants. I had the Laksa and really enjoyed that too but couldn't finish it. We were both very satisfied and couldn't entertain dessert this time. The restaurant was ticking along quite nicely for a Wednesday evening and the service was attentive but not overwhelming...and that's how we like it. We saw a few doggy bags go out the door too, so the serves are clearly ample enough. The delivery trade was regular too.More

Arrived at 6.30pm on a Sunday night. Wasn't overly busy. Ordered within 10 minutes. Waited 1 hour before our entree arrived. The wait staff were polite but there was no pre-warning of the wait times or apologies when they finally put the food on the...table. Unfortunately the food was average so it wasn't worth the wait. Really disappointed.More

We would love to try this restaurant based on reviews, but their booking system has now failed us twice. Booked online for a Tuesday night, booking system accepted the booking and send a confirming email. Then we received a phone call to say they don't...open Tuesdays. That's fine, but someone needs to tell their online booking system. Second time around, similar story. Booked for a Friday night at 6.30. Their system confirmed the booking and send a confirming email. Shortly after we got a phone call to say they were booked out at that time. All over for us at that stage.More

Fantastic food, fairly cheap, large portions. Full of people that clearly go there very regularly. Had the laksa and the mamak curry, both were great

This was unknown to us being from Interstate but thoroughly enjoyed the delicious flavors, We chose the "Feed me" for 2 and had VERY generous amounts and in fact could not eat it all. The Rendang was delicious and the chicken superb. Our friend who'd...lived in Djakarta for years was thrilled with his and the service was helpful and we'd definitely come back again. when we're over.More

Food was ok nothing to rave about, I was going to order the rendang and asked could I please get a portion of curry sauce on the side and it was a flat out NO, never had this problem in any other restaurant ever, so...I ordered the fish curry which was full of green beans and bay leafs which I found unusual as having been to Malaysia several times usually the Malaysian curry's have potatoes in them, friend ordered the chili prawns and asked could the shells be removed again a flat out NO, the waiter was annoyed that we all weren't sharing he said on several occasions that the food there was meant to be shared, overpriced, smallest portion of rice I've ever seen, actually told the waiter I wouldn't be back he couldn't have cared less. Best part of this restaurant is the music. Food was overpriced.More

Hi Mary, we appreciate all feedback from our customers during their dining experience. However, there are often factual and questionable comments. We do really appreciate your friend’s gesture who stayed behind and apologized to our waiter for your behavior and tipped him for his patient...More

Surprisingly sensational food- better than Malaysia! Had the Beef Rendang and it was amazing! Best I’ve had and I have spent many years traveling through . They nailed the laksa- authentic and tasty. The Murtabak was perfect- thank you for a delicious dinner after we...had to previously cancel because of sudden lockdown. Glad we came!More

Do you hate the feeling when you go to a restaurant and there is only one main course that you would eat? No hate here; just love!!! So much to try, and so little time!! Black pepper beef & Ayam Serai (BBQ chicken with lemongrass,...chilli & lime) - OUTSTANDING!! We’ll be back! ( I want to try the Cereal Butter Prawn; sounds soo good)More

Ordered through UberEats and absolutely loved everything! Even with the transit time to our house the food was fresh, tasty, juicy - but crispy where it was meant to be! The tastes reminded me of when I visited Malaysia as a child and are the...closest to authentic Malay I’ve had in ages. Everything we had was good and our only complaint was that we ate it all and wanted more! We will be back and thank you for an amazing meal!!!More
