Best Malaysian Restaurants in Sydney
Sydney got its first taste of Malaysian food at The Malaya in the 1960s – at the time, a far more casual restaurant serving laksas, chicken rice and satay to students and curious CBD workers.
Fast forward a few decades, and laksa was appearing in food courts and restaurants all over the city. Now, in addition to those classics, we have Malaysian restaurants scattered across Sydney, serving all kinds of different dishes, pulling in influences from the country’s many ethnic groups and cuisines.
In this guide you’ll find Malay, Malaysian-Indian and Malaysian-Chinese restaurants; and even some eateries serving lesser-known dishes from Borneo and Malaysia’s Peranakan people.
