Malaysia Kopi Tiam London Reviews

Authentic Malaysian hawker fare! - Malaysia Kopi Tiam has opened and shut down in several different locations over the years, but I'm glad to say it has now reopened on Charing Cross Road and is dishing up amazing authentic food up to the standards of critical Malaysians like myself! :)

I have been numerous times and love so many of its dishes: Char Kway Teow, Hainanese Chicken Rice, Nasi Lemak, Nasi Goreng, handmade Hakka Mee, Hokkien Mee and Cantonese Style For Fun are all gorgeous and come highly recommended! I have also been told by friends that the Bak Kut Teh is up to scratch, and from what I've seen on nearby tables it certainly looks the part.

Two dishes I would say are not quite as impressive are the Prawn Mee and Ipoh chicken hor fun, both which have prawn-based soups which are far too clear and bland. The manager actually agreed when I mentioned this to him, saying they are unable to get enough prawn shells to make the stocks rich and thick enough! Also whilst the Curry Mee is tasty, it was not really to my personal taste (too little soup in my opinion, and I prefer shredded poached Hainan chicken not actual Curry Chicken portions).

At the moment desserts are limited (only ice kacang) but I've been told they will expand it in future. In any case I am happy enough that grass jelly ("cincau" or "leong fun" in Chinese) is on the drinks menu.

At about £5.50 per dish, it's definitely a place for cheap authentic robust Malaysian food to satisfy those cravings!
