We ate at Ria on a Monday night, which happens to be BYO night - what a great idea to give people that option one night a week! The staff were very friendly and very helpful and very attentive and you really couldn't ask for more. All of the food we had was really tasty and most enjoyable. Lots of... More

The food was really nice. Found the arab beef very tasty and the Borneo fish very good. I'm not often a fan of fish but found this dish "not too fishy". If only the waiters could smile it would brighten up the service though.

Ria was my favourite restaurant years ago when it was half the size it was run by the very talented female owner/chef whose name eludes me. Fast forward 5 years and I'm back keen to see if it's still great. We 3 ordered 4 entrees to share, 4 mains and tried several cocktails on the menu. The food was sublime... More

I ate here last night with 8 other people and everyone commented on how amazing the food was. The atmosphere and service was excellent too. We arrived early so they suggested we sit at the bar and have a few drinks before everyone arrived. Excellent knowledge of cocktails. Everthing was reasonably priced.

After reading great reviews, my friend booked dinner for six friends to catch up on Saturday night. Unfortunately it was a big disappointment! I ordered Malaccan Lamb Semur which, on paper sounded rich and tasty with cinnamon and star anise flavours... in reality it was little more than beef and gravy, with very little meat. Two of our party had... More

Good service, great food in relaxed setting. Have eaten here a number of times and haven't had anything that wasn't great. Trusty favourites are the Rendang, seafood curry, Roti, pistachio & pear salad & pork belly but the list of great menu items goes on

Have been going to the Ria for years and the food is always delicious. Great selection of dishes, fab atmosphere and reasonably priced. Love that it offers takeaway at a discounted price too.

Easy parking. Really good Malay food. We bought 6 dishes to share between 8 friends. Everything was tasty. Good, friendly and quick service. Wil consider going there for lunch as well when the menu is smaller but cheaper.

Have been here a few times now. Chinese shredded beef, seafood tamarind, roti bread. Pretty much everything on the menu is a winner. Service also really good. One bloke decided he wanted a laksa to himself while the rest of us shared plates. Ours was delicious but his laksa looked really good and I wanted to eat it.

Thank Chris M

True to its word, Ria Malay Kitchen is home-style Malay cooking. Embracing all the cultural influences that have been added to the Malay melting pot over the years, the menu is a tantalizing fusion of flavours from Malaysia, India, China and even Portugal. In fact, the vindaloo is a Portuguese recipe - more aromatic than the Indian version, with less chilli - and like the Portuguese baked fish, bizarrely, you won't find it in Portuguese restaurants.

Our food is only made using the best local ingredients which are sourced by our team of chefs as every ingredient is considered special. Our food is as a Malaysian mother would cook using nothing processed and only the best available fresh produce.

Our name 'RIA', loosely translates to happy, jolly or bright which is at the heart of our philosophy. We aim to deliver the best possible eating experience in a happy and bright atmosphere without compromising the integrity of our home style food. Our team are carefully chosen to reflect our philosophy and these guys are here to help you have a great meal and enjoy the RIA experience.
