Straits Café Malaysian Cuisine

694 Doncaster Road


Vic 3108

Nice small cafe. Friendly, efficient service. Quality authentic Malaysian food. Always enjoy dinning at the cafe but very unhappy in having to put up with the poor food exhaust systems. Cafe has a long history of poor food exhaust systems. Problem is less prominent this evening but further improvement is needed.

Malaysian hawker style Char Tang Hoon (Stir Fried Glass Noodles)
Glass noodles are renowned to be hard to stir fry. Dish tonight was great. Glass noodles were fried just right. Non greasy dish. Top marks to chef!

Penang Char Kuey Teow
One of the best Penang Hawker Style Char Kuey Teow in Melbourne. Love the unique taste of dextrinized starch of flat noodles which is only achievable by extreme high heat quality wok cooking. Very nice dish. Only comment is portion size needs increment.
