We were here in London for a weekend trip and was delighted to find this gem of a restaurant. The service was excellent and it seems like its pretty popular as it was fairly crowded so I would advise to book ahead. I have read other reviewers saying that the service was a bit slow but we didn't find this... More

Very difficult to find authentic Malaysian food in London, but this is probably the best you'll find. The only other place that sells proper Malay food is Dapur on Clerkenwell Road. There are a number of other so-called restaurants purporting to sell Malay/Singapore food, but most of these sell some kind of bastardised Chinese buffet/take-away type food that bear no... More

Very tasty dishes and a good range of wines - cosy but with space also in the basement, I have eaten there 4 times in 5 weeks.

As other reviews have stated, the food was fantastic and incredibly delicious, great prices but the service was very slow. Quite a long wait before our order was taken and our food was served and needed some prompting. I had the tofu vegetable skewer and the caramelised aubergine curry and both were fantastic.

Satay House is a delightful discovery and for those who need their fix of Malaysian or Indonesian food this is the place to be. The menu is excellent with lots of Malay and Indonesian favourites and we ordered the satay and spring rolls both were excellent and tasty. I then went for the comfort of Beef Redang ( simply stunning... More

I have been to Satay house many times and was very impressed. This was my default place for good Malaysian food. This time though unfortunately it was different. I was here as part of a work dinner. We ordered our drinks and then had to ask twice for a waiter to take our order. Perhaps it was because we were... More

The food is authentic and the ambience is great. The mains are particularly good and filling. Definitely recommended.

Gorgeous, sophisticated food, beautifully presented, high quality and delicious. Upmarket in every way. We have been here a few times but more recently, when dropping by on the 'off chance' in the week, have found that the restaurant was not open so I suggest that you ring/book a table (upstairs seems more airy than below))

For more than 30 years, Satay House restaurant in London���s Paddington has been attracting lovers of Malaysian cuisine from all over the capital and across the globe. Satay House Malaysian restaurant was given a rejuvenating makeover in 2006 by the designers of Wagamama so it now sports cheerful orange feature walls with hibiscus flower stencils, sleek leather upholstery and pools of warm light. Despite the name, the food isn���t just about ���meat on sticks���, though Satay House���s satay is likely to be the best in the city. Certainly the restaurant is a home-away-from-home for ex-pat Malaysians and there are regular visits from the Malaysian royal family. Large portions of fiery sambal and traditional rending curries offer the perfect opportunity to eat ���Hidangan style���, or sharing with the rest of your table as in traditional Malay culture. All food served at Satay House is certified Halal and the soft beverages include several intriguing Malay offerings.
