Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.
Learn more about our review moderation.

Thrilled to find Kampung Kitchen on our recent stay in Tanunda. We ADORE Malaysia and Malaysian food so it was a pure delight to discover this place - and Ya is so friendly and generous. We ate Ya's delicious food on two occasions and had...we been in the Barossa longer, we'd have returned again and again. Here's what we enjoyed from Kampung Kitchen:- * Seafood Sambal * Chicken Green Curry * Chicken Satay * Beef Satay * Seafood Coconut * Asian Salad * Char Kway TeowMore

Ordering and service seemed a bit haphazard. I had the beef curry. Large is a very large serving, a small would do if sharing or having a mix. The beef was very hot. Nicely spiced, but it was physically very hot, like it had been...microwaved. The rice was undercooked, but again very hot. My wife's (chicken) meal was very good. I might give this place a second try, but I wouldn't rush to do it.More

A lovely meal and service experience from a casual takeaway/dine in restaurant. This is being run so well by only 2 very pleasant people with great service ethic. Very busy dine in and takeaway when we arrived. We were greeted by a young man who...advised there would be a 30 min wait for dine in meals and that was fine with us. Fantastic forethought to remove any different expectations upfront. Chef/owner then came to our table to check our preference for spicyness in our food. Chef delivered entree with a caution to let cool as they were very hot. He then returned to ask if we were ready for our main. Main was delivered and delicious. He then came to check during our meal if everything was satisfactory. The younger man took our payment and apologised for the waiting time. We assured him that the wait time had not been that long and we were prepared to wait longer having seen the popularity of this place. We were very impressed by the food and service.More

Greeted by a friendly enthusiastic owner/chef who is passionate about Malaysian food. For starters we had curry puffs which came piping hot and stuffed with a delightful spiced potato filling and chicken satay. The satay was beautifully marinated, chargrilled and served with a house made...peanut sauce full of spice and flavour - light years away from the dried out sad chicken sticks served with barely disguised peanut butter I’ve had in other establishments. For mains there was a duck curry and Sambal beef with spruce and roti. The curry was a duck leg bathed in a rich, dark sauce with a nice complexity. The Sambal was my highlight of the night. Tender strips of beef simmered in a tomato and chilli sauce with the added funk of belachan, so often missing when I have ordered it at other restaurants. The roti was crisp and light and perfect for dipping into the curry. A small bowl of ground fresh chilli was provided for those that like extra heat. All this for $39 inclusive of 2 soft drinks. No alcohol is served. Unsurpassed value and highly recommended.More

Came down for dinner tonite as we saw some good reviews on trip advisor, restaurant itself is pretty rough, order at the counter grab your drinks from the fridge kind of vibe, but the food is fabulous! We had a beef sambal, chicken satay and...a laksa, the sambal was delicious, flavoursome and not greasy at all, the satay skewers were really soft, Smokey and super authentic, the chef is hilarious and served our dishes coming out to ask what level of spice we wanted and he absolutely nailed it!! Laksa was rich and delicious - Amazing value a starter ,two mains and two soft drinks came to about $50 - super authentic food at a very reasonable priceMore

Never got to eat, we’d brought our own alcohol and were provided glasses by the serving staff then the owner came out and seemed to lose it. We had to leave without ordering. Found it strange for someone to run a restaurant in the Barossa...Valley and then be anti alcohol. I appreciate the religious differences that may exist but I wasn’t forcing beliefs or customs on anyone. Just trying to enjoy a meal with a glass of wine.More

The Malay chicken curry was exceptional. A lovely flavour and lots of chicken, however the Laksa was too rich for us, and really needed more variety of seafood. Prices were good. Certainly worth a visit. Can sit in or take out.

This little gem delivers the goods. Beautifully prepared fresh food. You will not be disappointed. The nice variety of curry’s, noodles, salad with GF and vegetarian options. It only accomodate so a few small tables with a couple outfront. It has a busy takeaway trade.

A little gem in Main street of Tanunda. It’s very rarely nowadays do you get to chat to the chef who cooks your food. Authentic and flavoursome Malay food. All great. Will be back.

The food here is really great and super tasty, but on the night that we visited, the tiny restaurant was in chaos. The phone was ringing off the hook, the chef was barking instructions to the only other staff member in the kitchen and there...was a backlog of takeaway and in-house dining orders. We didn't realise that we had to place our food order at the front counter which increased our wait time. We felt that the 2 staff members did a pretty good job - but it just didn't make for a pleasant dining experience - Food: 4 & Service: 2More
