Having eaten at many restaurants on the Central Coast in 20 years, without a doubt the All Malay Restaurant at Avoca Beach is our favourite which we keep returning to time and time again and taking all our visitors to. The flavours are superb - in fact on a recent trip around Malaysia itself we didn't find a restaurant as... More

We booked on Saturday and arrived at 6:30pm. The wait staff were friendly and efficient. For entree we had chicken & corn soup and the roti wirh curry sauce (as many people raved about this dish). For main we ordered satay chicken & steamed rice and the Malaysian laksa. The chicken & corn soup was a generous serving but lacked... More

This was a pleasant surprise. Dined here on Aus Day weekend as a family visit. The menu is extensive and everything we ordered was very good. Food came out quickly too but we didn't feel rushed. It's BYO and there's a bottle shop across the road. Nice touch was the talented busker covering Neil Young style music while we dined.... More

Very quick service. Good Malay food and very good value. The roti was excellent and worth visiting just for this. No alcohol so byo if you want it.

I had the immense pleasure of dinning at AllMalay last night. Having travelled to Malaysia quite a few times I was thrilled when each dish came out as they were all so beautifully prepared and incredibly authentic to taste, the tenderness of the beef rendang and flavour was amazing. The service was impeccable and I had the pleasure of meeting... More

The food was pretty ordinary. The satay and salt and pepper tofu were nice, everything else was pretty average. Service was okay and they were quick. Was very busy for a very average place.

This restaurant is very popular and we were lucky to get a table before it was reserved 45 minutes later. There was no trouble having and enjoying our fish cakes, followed by chicken satay stir-fry, chilli prawns and Penang fish curry and rice in time. That was plenty for 4 people. We ate outside which was pleasant in the summer... More

Date night at the Avoca Beach cinema and thought we'd just pop in for something to eat as we'd often eaten here before and the food is always great. Not school holidays so didn't bother to book. Who'd have thought that Avoca Beach was now a foodie magnet. It was a cool night and every table including those closer to... More

The food here is delicious, they have great fresh flavours. It's nice to see a bit of variety in Avoca. The service is quick, so you if you are after a long dining experience it may be best to spread out your ordering. The staff are lovely.

We found this place by chance and had a very nice meal of satay chicken, rendang and prawns. The portions were large and we couldn't finish. Very nice food and friendly service. Shame we don't have this type of restaurant back in the UK.

Thank Russell J
