My favorite restaurant in Wellington. The food is great and very cheap. Have tried many items from the menu and have never been disappointed. Definitely love their kung pow chicken. The food always comes out very quickly. It's quite a small restaurant but always very busy.

I recommend trying the more authentic Malaysian choices in meals. You wil not regret. I've had the roti Chennai lol it was good. I also tried the kung pao chicken which could be better and not as flavoursome, hence I recommend trying the noodles and more authentic Malaysian choises, which are amazing. This little place is quite the popular in... More

Visited kk last Saturday for lunch while in wgtn for the day. It was my local a few years ago and it has not changed one bit. Prices are still great and the food is still amazing. The Mee goreng and roti is so tasty. Thanks for a blast from the past

Just returned to KK after a five-year hiatus. The food was just as good now as it was then and, astonishingly, the prices are pretty much the same - only a $0.50 premium on last time around. The seafood laksa is a particular favourite. Great place.

Visited KK Malay on the advice of a friend and was not disappointed. Great authentic Malay food for prices that simply cannot be beaten in New Zealand. A real hidden gem in Wellington's food scene.

Visiting Wellington and walked past this place. The smell was tantalising and pulled me in....the place was full... we got the last table. Just sopped for a quick bite and it was worth every mouthful. The service was so fast and with a smile. The food was delicious and the roti was good. Good value... thanks.
