This is by no means fine dining but this is a 5 star restaurant based on food, service and price. The staff were friendly and attentive, the food was great with Entrees between $6 - $11.50, Mains from $17.50, Vegetarian meals from $15.50 and Rice and Noodle dishes from $16.00. No alcohol for sale but BYO wine and beer with... More

Aside from the fact that their fried rice is delicious, they have big servings, good for 2-3 people. The price is cheap if you're in a group. But the food took around 20mins to arrive so it's best to give them a call in advance

I've been going to Sri Pinang for years. Most restaurants come and go, but it's a pretty simple formula that's kept this restaurant open and a favorite of many. Consistently good food, reasonable prices, and friendly staff. Highly recommended for those who just want to kick back and relax.

Not sure who is doing all the raving reviews but that was not my experience. Squid, tiny, rubbery. 6 tiny skinny rings for a $6 entree? Really? The seafood laksa had mostly tofu, I prawn, 1 mussel and sauce without any flavour. Beef rending chewy. $47 disaster. Hopeless. Won't be back.

I love this place, we go once a month with the girls from work... Roti Curry is my Favourite - haven't eaten anything like it anywhere else :) Cheap and cheerful and you get a real decent amount of food for your money!

I've been coming here for 12 years now and the service and food is consistently fantastic, staff are super friendly and are happy to accommodate meal changes to be vegetarian or just different in some way. Everything is really good for value, food comes out quickly and the service is great

The reason this place has been around for decades, and we could only get a 6pm sitting, is because the food is fantastic and ridiculously cheap. Add to that a relaxed environment and good service, plus BYO wine, and you can't go wrong with this place - if you can get in!

Can't speak highly enough of the food and straight forward no nonsense service. Non Europeanised Malay food and at lunch time the variety ,while limited ,caters for all tastes and so very reasonably priced . In the evening the menu is more extensive and if there is something not on their menu and from Malaysia Angie will make it to... More
