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.

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.

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 price

Chicken curry made from chicken scraps. Just terrible the prices aren't what they seem. Old menus and old prices

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.
