Malaysian Restaurant Wau / Amsterdam

Opening Hours
Sun, Mon, Thu, Fri, Sat 16:00 - 23:00

"Wau" is a type of kite from Malaysia. Because it is so unique, it is also a cultural symbol of Malaysia. The flag carrier of Malaysia - M.A.S. (Malaysian Airline System) - portray the silhouette of the Wau in their logogram. The exoticness of the Malay cuisine makes us want to tell you something more about it. In the words of a quote from the cookbook "The Malay Kitchen": "Although that sometimes is thought, the Malay kitchen is definitely not identical to the Indonesian. The "Indonesian cuisine" differs from island to island. The Malay kitchen exhibits no resemblance to that from Bali, but holds similarities with the dishes of Sumatra, the island that it is the closest to. On the other hand, however, there are a multitude of unique Malaysian dishes that create something very special. The Malaysian cuisine is unique thanks to the contributions of the Babamalaysians, the descendants of Chinese immigrants that married Malay women in the early 20th century. The kitchen of Nyonyas (as the Baba-women are called) combines the best of both countries. The result is a variety of delicious dishes, ranging from creamy-mild to flaming hot, and from sweet to savory." In a modern romantic interior we serve a variety of elevated Malaysian food inlcuding Nasi Lemak, 9 different types of satay, Curry Laksa, Nasi Goreng, Char Kway Teow, Petai Udang, etc. We serve only Halal Food, but we do have alcoholic drinks. Meat is bought from the same Halal Slagerij Kaddour in Amsterdam since 1995. A variety of vegetarian dishes is available, as well as vegan and gluten-free options. No MSG is used in the preparation of our food.

Me as a Malaysian was totally disappointed with the meal served. It was a horrifying experience ones can endure. The meals are overpriced and don’t even worth the taste and amount served, i would recommend Nyonya Malaysian Restaurant because not only the meals are way cheaper than overpriced Wau Malaysian cuisine, the environment inside the Nyonya Restaurant also represents the true Malaysian environment and satisfaction. I‘ve compared the price with other restaurants nearby and the result was mind blowing, a simple dish costs me as high as 20€. Lol, simply irrational. A small compact restaurant that can‘t fit more than 20 customers charges customers sky rocketing prices. GooglePlace - January 2018

The service provided was good however, talking from a real Malaysian perspective, I find that the Malaysian dishes served are not authentic. Don’t believe the good reviews made by other people here, most of them are reviewed by whites and they have no idea what Malaysia dishes taste like. The price is also very expensive. I would recommend try Nyonya not far from Wau for authentic Malaysian dish. GooglePlace - January 2018

Ignore or enjoy the frenetic atmosphere, it’s reminiscent of an Asian market. The beautiful decor and caring staff show you the warm side of Malaysian cuisine. Go here. Try things. You can’t go wrong. GooglePlace - December 2017

The lamb and the sate were delicious. The service was great, everyone was very nice. The rice pudding was very good too. It was a nice and cozy place to spend Christmas dinner! GooglePlace - December 2017
