Oh my gawd! Talk about authentic Malaysian food! This place makes you feel like you are in Kuala Lumpur. I've traveled to Malaysia and I honestly felt like I was back there. I ordered the roti canai, my absolute favorite, and it was so good! Super flavorful. Very CHEAP! You can't go wrong at this place, highly recommend if you're... More

Not a typical Malaysian restaurant. The dishes are not "dumbed-down" for beginners here. Have a special time and enjoy an assortment of delicious dishes not found elsewhere. Wonderful food, not expensive, charming service, not a fancy ambiance, but clean and interesting. No rushing here. Enjoy yourself. (BYOB)

Overall, the food is good. The price is a little high compared to the others but not significantly more than the city. Seafood noodles and roti are good. The service is ok. Will probably go back again.

This approximates food from Malaysia and Singapore but doesn't taste like it, so those looking for Super authentic food will be disappointed. Having said that it's tasty and reasonably priced Asian food. Nothing to object to there!

We went to Taste Good Malaysian around 2 weeks back. In the sequence, we ordered: Roti Canai, Vegetarian curry, chicken curry. noodles. Roti Canai was made from frozen roti you can find in Asian stores 'Malaysian Parantha'. Service was good until at pont. This is a cash only place. We were short of cash. Luckily, our bill was only $30... More

Like a good Brooklynite I don't make a lot of treks to Queens, but I'd been hearing so many good things about this place I decided to give it a go. It sure didn't disappoint. Here's what we had: Roti Canai - Oh man. Amazing. Warm, moist, flatbread that comes with a curry chicken dipping sauce/mini soup. I dream about... More

Living in Elmhurst, you can go to a lot of different Asian and Spanish places to your tummy's galore. Not all are good but there are quite a few gems. Taste Good really does taste good. Start with a light Roti Canai, feast on Beef Rendang and finish it off with a nice longan juice and a variety of desserts.... More

Whenever I am in the Elmhurst / Flushing area, I would take the opportunity to eat here with friends. I learnt of this gem from one of my friends, a Filipino chef. This obscure, hole-in-the-wall restaurant delivers remarkably authentic Malaysian food from the Kaula Lumpur region, which has its differences from Malaysian food from the Ipoh or Penang regions. My... More

This restaurant does not appeal much to the eye but I will continue going back regularly for the tasty beef rendang...

Try out the chicken rice on my trip to NYC. Was very delicious and dont forget to eat it with its chily sauces. Its only cost 5 dollar. The place is clean but very limited space for dine in.
