Absolutely loved it. Just a few minutes walk from our hotel on Praed Street. After living in Indonesia, this is the first time I have found true and autentic Malay/Indonesian cuisine. Enjoy every moment and every mouthful. Would love to go there again. A must...More

Located conveniently within walking distance from Paddington station. Menu and drink list appeared authentic enough, with their original Malay names and English translations. We tried the satay (only 6 pieces for 9 pounds, rather pricey), taste was decent, the peanut gravy was quite good. And...More

For more than 30 years, Satay House restaurant in London���s Paddington has been attracting lovers of Malaysian cuisine from all over the capital and across the globe. Satay House Malaysian restaurant was given a rejuvenating makeover in 2006 by the designers of Wagamama so it now sports cheerful orange feature walls with hibiscus flower stencils, sleek leather upholstery and pools of warm light. Despite the name, the food isn���t just about ���meat on sticks���, though Satay House���s satay is likely to be the best in the city. Certainly the restaurant is a home-away-from-home for ex-pat Malaysians and there are regular visits from the Malaysian royal family. Large portions of fiery sambal and traditional rending curries offer the perfect opportunity to eat ���Hidangan style���, or sharing with the rest of your table as in traditional Malay culture. All food served at Satay House is certified Halal and the soft beverages include several intriguing Malay offerings.
