I LOVE the food at this place, it is not greasy, it is fantastic...to be exact, I was looking for the number online and saw the bad review and thought I had to say how good it is...my husband is picking it up for dinner tonight and I can't wait. The man who answers the phone is a bit gruff like others have mentioned, BUT he knows my husband by his name and always greets him with a friendly disposition...so Sandywhoeveryouare that never ate there and gave it a one star, shame on you. If you did eat there you'd be giving it five stars like the rest of us!!
Best food in the world !!!. This is the best restaurant in the world and sandy2013 you said you've never been there..... so how do you know if is good or not?
best asian restaurant in wiston salem. i don't know who wrote the review below nor do i care. i am, however, concerned and wish to refute it. how can anyone review anything without "ever having been there?" i have never seen a mexican chef at the malay, but who cares about the ethnicity of the chefs if the food is great, the portions are large, the service is friendly and the price is right? additionally, they prepare diabetic meals for me. my wife and i have been eating at the malay since it opened 9 years ago for the reasons stated above and average more than one meal a week there, traveling from the suburbs past other asian restaurants. for a really great, inexpensive lunch try their malasian weekly specials.
malay chinese restaurant winston salem. it' s an awful place i never been there. I used to pass by the back door.Cooks are all mexican people, food is tiny .not worth to get there.it s totally bad!!!
We love this place!. I first read the reviews and they said the owner might be a little bit like the 'Soup Nazi' like on Seinfeld but we have found that he warms up and remembers his customers. He treats us so good but he does take his restaurant very seriously. We love the food and the people who work with him are very friendly. We are happy to call this restaurant 'home'! The friends I have taken there all love the food. You know you'll find a great meal at a very fair price!
Authentic Malay cuisine!.
I lived in Malaysia for three years so I know Malay cooking quite well. Frankly, I was shocked to find a Malay restaurant in a town the size of Winston-Salem. I can only comment on the Malay part of the menu since I can't seem to get to order anything else. The Malay food is not as good as Malay home cooking but it is authentic and spiced as strongly as it would be served in country. Too many ethnic restaurants tone down their flavor to avoid offending the American palate to the point that they end up bland and inauthentic.
The portions are generous but that only matters when you like the food. When two of us go and order three main courses, we generally take home leftovers for two more meals (2 servings each). If you like spicy tastes, I recommend the Nasi goreng, the beef rendang and the Singapore noodles. Both versions of curry are excellent; I prefer the Indonesian hot pot style and my wife likes the dry curry better. For those who desire the flavor intensity turn down a notch or two, try the Chicken Chow Fun as well as the Pad Thai. I do not usually like pad thai at all but theirs is the first that I do not find too sweet.
FInally, the manager/owner Alan is extremely helpful. Just tell him what ever your particular needs are, e.g. vegetarian, afraid of too much hot spices or allergic to MSG, and he will take care of it conscientiously.
One of my favorite places to go out to eat. And the prices are extremely reasonable.
Best Chinese food and Amazing Malaysian cuisine !!!!.
We were very exicited to come overthere few weeks ago. I Loved the place, small from outside but actually hold alot of people inside.
And The service really great, especially the waiter who was really fluenced in english and understand all the menu descriptions and willing to give the best recomendations which will fit our tounge.
Will be back sooonnn...
Wonder food and lovely pond!. This is one of my fav places to go. The service is super fast and the fried rice is the best i've had! I love the beautiful fish pond and the environment is cute. There are lots of booths to have a romantic dinner and there is a back room for parties. The dinner specials are great for the money, you get soup, rice, your dinner and a egg roll or spring roll. :)
Just your average Chinese. We received a less than welcoming greeting when we arrived at the restaurant. The server was very efficfient and went out of his way to make us happy. He seemed surprised when we asked for "no MSG." The food was not wonderful, but not horrible either. The spring rolls and egg rolls had been pre-cooked. The Asian mustard had been watered down. When the (manager? greeter? owner?) went to the table behind us and asked them to pay their bill because it was time to close and go home (9:02PM), we took our cue, paid up and left. I would go back here only if we had no better choice.
Best Chinese Food in Winston-Salem. I've eaten at a lot of Chinese restaurants in Winston, and this is by far the best. I've tried some of the Malaysian fare, as well, and it's delicious. Nice, relaxing atmosphere; friendly, prompt service; excellent variety on the menu. It's my first choice for Chinese in Winston-Salem.
