This is a fast food restaurant with a small number of tables and the not a place to go for a long dinner. Order, eat and leave! BUT, the food is really good and the service is quick and efficient. I just love the quality, flavours and amount of food for the money, great value. Definitely would go back here,... More

With high expectations we went to KK Restaurant. The Char Kuey Teow was different from the Penang or KL version. A bit sweeter and even though we were a bit surprised on the first bite, it kind-of grows on your palate. The Johor style Achar is unusual but then I haven't had Johor's Achar before so can't comment too much... More

The biggest drawcard for me is that it is pork-free, which is unusual for Malaysian Chinese (semi Nyonya Cuisine) run eatery. Another Welington Malaysian Chinesw eatery, Satay Kajang on Dixon Street also claims to be pork free because it claims to be Halal. But KK is the clear winner because of its affordability. Been there just over week ago and... More

Extremely good food - fast service and very easy on the pocket. But you must book as not much seating.

This is my "go to" place for good and tasty Malaysian food, especially when I'm being budget-conscious. Not the sort of place where you'd spend hours, but the food is delicious and the staff friendly.

Tasty and cheap with quick and friendly service. .exactly what it's supposed to be :) Went for lunch on a Tuesday, got a seat straight away and food on the table within 10 minutes. We got the Nasi Lemak with chicken and Seafood lasksa. Both great flavour for the total $24 price tag. We left with full bellies and smiling... More

I ordered the beef nasi goreng and a wonton soup. Both were divine, particularly the beef dish. I couldn't believe the high quality for the price! It was the best nasi goreng I've ever tasted! If you're going to eat in be sure to book or go early as it gets busy! Otherwise take-away was perfect for me!

One of my favourites for a cheap but cheerful meal. Great quick service and nice food, but typically too busy and draughty.

Back in Wellington after a long break, used to eat at KK a lot. Came in tonight, nothing has changed! Great value, tasty food and fast service. It's not flash, you not going to impress anyone coming here but it's one of my favourites. Unbeatable value, great food.

My partner and I ordered large chicken laksa, small tofu salad and steamed chicken. Too much food for the both of us!!!. Chicken laksa came with a lot of chicken pieces therefore we regretted ordering the steamed chicken and should have ordered another type of dish. Their tofu salad is really good and every time so tempted to order a... More
