This is a composite review, since we ate at Kopitiam twice in the space of a couple of weeks. Yes, it's that good. This is an Asian restaurant with the emphasis on Malaysian food. For starters, the chicken and mango spring rolls and sambal eggs are both great, bursting with flavour. For mains, we had Malaysian vegetable curry with boiled... More

You feel like you are walking into an entrance to an office but just turn left and go with it. The food is really good and they do lots of fun drinks, like bubble teas and milkshakes. Always busy even at strange times of the day.

Fantastic Malaysian food. Visit on Friday night enjoyed salt n pepper prawns followed by a Hakers box with Red Thai Curry. They will make curry as hot as you like. Our waitress was brilliant as usual recommending dishes we loved and shared. Tiger beer washed it all down nicely. Never rushed so very relaxing atmosphere.

The restaurant is quite small so could have the tendency to feel quite packed when busy, however that doesn't detract from the overall pleasant feel of the restaurant. The food on offer here is generally of very good quality and the friendly staff take a real pride in what they serve. If you like Asian cuisine but don't want to... More

Had a delicious meal here last week. Gorgeous rice noodles with pork, prawns and tons of veg. Really tasty. My friend has a Thai curry which she really enjoyed. We also has 2 drinks. She has a kiwi bubble tea and I had mixed berry. They were the black tapioca balls. Really weird and really Moreish!

Popped in for food after the ballet. It's a bit like a canteen decor wise, but the food was fabulous, super tasty. Nice friendly service and efficient too. Wine choice not great. Only one red if I remember correctly?? But other than that, lovely.

This is becoming a regular for me when I am back in Glasgow. Food is fantastic, service is quick and is reasonably priced. I've now started to bring my out of town friends here and they love it too. Can heartily recommend the Pad Thai - delish!

If you try one thing here, make sure it's anything with Chilli and Salt, okay so that could be Squid, Prawns, Soft shelled Crab or Chicken. Whichever you choose, I guarantee it'll arrive piping hot and fresh to your table! Also recommend any of the Sherbet soft drinks, it's great to be able to have something interesting to drink when...
