The nasi goreng in this place deserves a place in the mind to remember - it's seriously good, though not abundantly provided with prawns even for the 'prawns only' version (which costs extra). Staff is very friendly, though lacking some confidence (could have been a new staff member...). But we'll definitely be back here again.

Thank Leo L

Decor is very Malaysian with batik cloth as table cloths and waitresses dressed in kebayas which is a nice touch. Food is authentic Malaysian, and include assam laksa. I would not consider this cheap eat Malaysian restaurant

We came here on a busy night (there were two very large groups) the wait staff were very busy, and the restaurant was full. I'm very glad we booked in advance. The food was very good, we had clay pots and our friends had curry and a sizzling plate. We all enjoyed our food. I definitely would go back, and... More

Mutiara is a small Malaysian restaurant. Its simple decorations are more of Indonesian than of Malaysian. There are some Malaysian restaurants in Auckland but hardly any one is good and consistent. My friends & I had an early dinner on a Saturday. We began with a complimentary deep-fried prawn on spinach - nicely plated. Next we had egg salad -... More
