We as a family was staying close by but only stumbled across this restaurant as we got lost on our way back to the hotel so decided to take a chance. Wow what great food and service! We was well fed and couldn’t eat everything...as there was abundance of food. It may not be the Ritz interior wise but the food was amazing, fresh and well presented. What more can you ask for!? Oh yeah the price more than reasonable in fact I had to take a second look to make sure they hadn’t missed something off the bill. Will definitely pop in again when we visit London againMore

I went to dine at Ibu with a number of Malaysian and Singaporean friends. Overall the ambience was basic, although the place appears clean and well-organized. The service was very friendly and helpful. Some dishes were excellent, including very good chicken satay and Malaysian oxtail...soup. Others were not entirely convincing, e.g., the mee curry.More

Lovely little restaurtant, with very tradidtional Malaysian decor and great tasting food, but . . . . . We went in for lunch, but noticed that the 6 patrons already in the restaurant were wearing their coats, as it was freezing inside! - Eventually we...asked for the heating to put on! The food was very tasty, freshly made, and the presentation was absolutely lovely, but the service was poor, our sons Nasi Lemak was served first, along with my boiled rice, but I then had to wait another 5 minutes for my curry, by which time my rice was cold. The same happened with our daughters sweet and sour, which was served, and she then had to wait another 8 minutes for her fried rice. By the time my wife's char kway teow arrived, our son had already finished eating, and I was just about to finish - So much for a family meal together. . . Don't get me wrong, the food was really very tasty, and that made up a little for the delays, but it would have be really nice if it had all arrived at the same time and we could have eaten it hot and togetherMore

Thank you Cammie for hosting us last night. The food felt like home cooking and so sedap! We had satay and murtabak to share. Generous portion size too. We will definitely come back..

I had a delicious Roti Canai a few days ago at IBU. Roti was fluffy and crisp and so tasty. The curry alongside was very tasty and flavourful. However, the curry portion was a bit too small. I would have given them 5 stars if...the curry portion was right!More

Group of 8 and every meal was delicious. The roti canai were particularly good! I haven’t eaten Malaysian food since I was in Malaysia 3 years ago and the food here brought back good memories and was really authentic! Will definitely return.

Stumbled across Ibu by accident and what a lucky find. Beautiful food that the whole party of 8 absolutely loved. We were so happy to have come across it. Staff were very friendly and attentive. Will definitely be returning.

Nine of us here as walking on a Saturday evening at about 630pm They would like to see you and the restaurant was about a quarter full. Service was lovely temperament of the staff really matched our experience. The food itself as far as we...were concerned it is in the highest in cooking but the flavours were delicious and reminded me of the food we have eaten in Malaysia before and it was noticeable Malaysians in the restaurant eating. The fish soup was utterly delicious set of three people who had it and they were sitting at different parts of the table and when I tasted it I had to agree. The butter chicken with startlingly good better than any I’ve ever had before and not the same as the butter chicken We have in an Indian restaurants it was Such a pleasure to eat here I’m glad I haven’t read the other reviews that were written hear Because of they seen erroneous maybe they’ve Improved since last November I will be making a detour on my way to Paddington rather than getting on the train over priced and expensive even though it’s a fun experience.More
