Our first visit to this small, buzzy, family run stalwart in W2 on a Sunday evening - post theatre. The owners couldn't have been more helpful in accommodating our late booking, and we were rewarded by freshly cooked, authentic Malaysian food. Piping hot and crisp vegetable spring rolls stood out, and Nasi Campur included a taste of everything Malaysian - just what we wanted.
Nice cozy atmosphere. Service staff were extremely friendly.
Very tasty and spicy food! Genuine Malaysian food in a modern ambiance.
Loved it. Small restaurant with really great flavourful and in my opinion authentic food. There were menu options for every palette.
The food was amazing and truly authentic, we ate more than we planned, just could not resist the nasi goreng kampung and Kuey theow, truly the best!
the food is ok but too oily also the portions are ridiculously small- increase your portions in line with other malaysian restaurants
The food is good but the portions are far too small - the prices are not cheap so they really need to increase their portion sizes to compete with other Malaysian restaurants
Fast service and good quality foods
Fantastic food with lots different options great service with friendly staff
Went with Malaysian relatives, and the food got a thumbs-up across the board. Hard to find good Malaysian food in a restaurant, so this was a real gem.
Authentic Malaysian food. Great service and ambience.
The staff were all very friendly and checked on our party regularly without making us feel awkward. They were attentive even though it was busy and they kindly changed my friends order when she told them it was too dry for her. The food was great. Starters a little overpriced but still tasty. I would go back for a daytime visit. Thanks
Amazing food and amazing service! Staff were friendly! Can’t wait to come again
Great service and delicious food as always.
I was disappointed in the service as they had forgotten our meal and we were waiting for more than an hour for mains to arrive. They offered to take off “service charge” and each persons one soft drink. Being Malaysian, this was very mediocre and the food could have been much better.
Been to Satay House about 4-5 times now over the last couple of years and it is still our favourite Malaysian restaurant in London: authentic, fresh and great tasting food every time. The service is not too formal but efficient. The Chicken Satay is a usual favourite: beautifully cooked chicken pieces on a skewer served with an excellent satay sauce. The Begedil and Murtabak are also moreish...For mains, the Nasi Goreng was delicious, and I like to combine the Kari Ayam (Malaysian Chicken Curry) with nice fluffy rotis (see Roti Canai on the menu which comes with a small helping of curried vegetables). If you are in the Edgware Road area, pass on the Lebanese for a change and give this a try: you won’t regret it. Definitely recommend....!
Nice place with really good food! We enjoyed some of the starters and completed it with some main meals. Staff was helpful and friendly (air condition was too cold when we went in, they immediately reduced it when we asked for). We had a desk in the ground floor which was quite nice (there is another room in the basement). Good value for money!
Service was excellent. The food was brilliant. Very quick service- nothing to fault
I took my wife here before catching a train from Paddington. After reading the reviews We thought this place looked ideal. We wanted someone nice and we both like Malaysian food. We arrived jut before they opened and fair play to the staff they let us in because it was raining outside. We ordered quite a few dishes and the food was terrible. Everything was overcooked. The Beef we could hardly chew. The lamb satay were not just chargrilled they were burnt. The squid in the soup was like rubber. The fish tasted off. In fact nothing was good. We went to catch our train and we had an hour to wait at Paddington. My wife felt sick and had to use the toilet twice. I would recommend people steer clear of this place.
The staff was absolutely delightful. Their recommendations were excellent, especially the Seabass Sambal.
Food is amazing. But service was poor. Waiter could not tell you what dish was what.
The food was exactly as I remembered, lovely. And it made my Singaporean born Mum feel all nostalgic for the cuisine she remembers as a child. highly recommended!
ran out of most popular rendang which is what i came for
Great find - the dining area was small but didn't feel cramped just cosy. First trip to a Malaysian restaurant and the food was excellent - the satay truly amazing. The service was really good, everyone was very friendly and attentive, even surprised me with a treat when they overheard it was my birthday!! would definitely go back and would recommend to anyone.
I come to this restaurant once in a couple of months. Recently, the quality of food has dropped considerably
Very authentic Malaysian / Singaporean cuisine. The Roti's were particularly good. Probably not as spicy as you would actually find in Asia, but pretty good never the less. Service was polite and helpful. This is a small restaurant, looked after by people who care. Recommend if you're in the Paddington area.
I love eating this place but was disappointed where we was sitting as we was next to the door and it was not right feeling
Great food will definitely be back. Just a touch pricey. That should be reinvested in updating the dates interior decor!
Excellent food , good value, friendly and accommodating staff
Great find with atmosphere and delicious food. Highly recommendable and so close to Paddington.
Fabulous food. Lovely staff. Great location. Becoming a regular!
The Satay House is our must go to restaurant when coming to London, the food is delicious. The service is great with friendly staff and accommodating for children. The food is super tasty and even the children love it, lamb/chicken satay is a clear favourite with Udang Galah goreng and Mee Goreng close behind.
First visit in over a year and the restaurant seems to have gone steeply downhill. I had the steamed chicken and rice which was their signature but the quality is now appalling. The so-called steamed chicken is a small piece of stale and bruised chicken re-microwaved (or re-re-microwaved) totally tough and tasteless and I could not bear to eat it. Uncle Ben's chicken flavoured rice tastes better than the rice they served. The tapioca melaka pudding is minuscule and one would expect them to be more generous with a price tag of over £5.
Fantastic food, friendly service! Will be back very soon and very frequently!
Thanks a lovely meal with good friendly service and wine
What you expect is what you get in this really nice Malaysian place. The food seems pretty authentic and there’s a good choice. All of the dishes we had were really nice and enjoyable. The house wine was also a rather nice Australian. Service is charming and if you’re in the area it’s well worth a visit. Recommended.
Friendly service and really good food!
Great food and service. Very friendly. It was full so was a bit noisy but I would go back again!
Food was delicious, and some dishes very homely. Although I am not sure whether it's value for money enough to be regular. In saying that, it was definitely worth it as an experience of delicious Malaysian food. Would recommend to try. Service was the best of any restaurant I've been to recently, staff were very caring and polite, whilst also giving us privacy.
