We ordered their Malaysian Springrolls (Popiah) and Satay for our appetizers. The Springrolls were a spicy combination of sweet, salty, umami tastes. It explodes with flavor as you savor the complex combination of the spices. The kids loved the satay (sure bet for my kids) which were inexpensive and has much more meat per stick than other restaurants. (4 sticks per order). I love their noddle dishes as well (Hokkien Mee, Mamak Mee Goreng) which were delicious and satisfying. We tried to order multiple dishes and shared so we could taste as many dishes as possible. The Nasi Lemak is so rich and yummy - like the Hawker food in Malaysia. We are definitely going back to sample more dishes there.

My coworkers and I visit this place frequently because the food is absolutely delicious! On top of that, the prices are reasonable. The satay is incredible and the roti canai is so good! I would also recommend the Hokkein Mee. Yummy

Growing up in Malaysia I became accustomed to the food and culture and I've yet to find a Malaysian restaurant that comes close. Though it can be said about any ethnic restaurant, I just know how to be picky. That out of the way, I did not have great expectations but I think I'll come here again. Tried the curry laksa and they used the wrong noodle, lacked some of the flavors I grew up with, but they got the spicyness right. I recommended hokkien mee for my friend cuz he's really into noodles and they did not dissapoint. Roti canai was a big let down: needed to be fluffy. Will have to try the other dishes like nasi lemak next time for a real test!

Last week, my sister and I visited Malaysia Kopitiam. It's a quaint little restaurant located a door or two away from a Gentlemen's club. It was close to closing and there was one other table seated, so I can't say much about the atmosphere. That being said, I can speak on the food. My sister and I both orders similar dishes - mine being Singapore Noodles and hers being something without Curry. We both ordered them Mild. Let's just say that when these people tell you that their food is spicy, it probably is. My sister, who handles hot quite marvelously , began drinking massive amounts of water (to which the refils were plentiful) and asking me if my lips were burning as well. The hostess and the waiter both looked at us and then walked over to ask her if everything was okay. She reminded them that she had ordered her food mild. He informed her that she had a mild dish. Thats when I remembered a review that I once read about their food being spicy indeed. Since both of us were struggling with the heat, he pleasantly took both back and replaced them with new enjoyable dishes. I've been to Penang in New York, Boston, and in DC and I can say that they truly do have the atmosphere. But, I enjoyed the food and the the service that we received at Malaysia Kopitiam. When my family returns from Massachusetts to visit, that will be our choice for an evening's dinner.
