Quick lunch on a cold day, I had the beef Rendang wrap. The wrap was freshly made with burnt bits which made it the highlight of the meal. The curry had a good taste and the salad was fresh. Size was smallish, but not too...More

We hopped off the tram at Cathedral Square and saw this food truck and decided to stop for a quick lunch. It wasn't bad! For a food truck with limited facilities, the kueh teow and chicken curry were quite acceptable. Not the standard of a...More

The reason I say that is simply because; --The quality of food is tasteless and BAD --The portions are pathetic and SMALL --The price is way too HIGH for the quality and portions served. More importantly, the elderly lady inside the truck is very rude...More

Grabbed a discount deal for this place and glad I did, what a gem, lost between so many other food places on Papanui Road. Good Malaysian is hard to find, try the Beef Rendang curry, that was our favourite dish ordered.

Highly recommended for lunch and dinner. Great selection of food. Authentic flavours and great service. We are regular visitors over lunch. Their lunch time special $10 is good value.

Fantastic selection of dishes, and the best house made tofu!! Not exactly a romantic space, but the flavours and food make up for it. Exceptional value for money as well, they are about to shift location, so check out their Facebook site to find out...More

My husband and I frequently order Takeaways from this great Malaysian restaurant. The food is always amazing, especially their roti paratha, yum, and their beautiful wontons.

Description
Authentic Malaysian food can be difficult to find in Christchurch, but the popular Street Food has a menu bursting with the region's best dishes. "Malaysia Delights channels the flavours of traditional fare usually found at a hawker centre in Malaysia. Owner Peter Foo's restaurant is an inside version of what would be an open-air food market overseas, with all the same exciting flair and spice as its Asian inspiration. Just as the hawker centre stalls do, the chefs at Malaysia Delights formulate their own recipes for sambal chilli paste, curry paste and satay sauce."
