Quick lunch on a cold day, I had the beef Rendang wrap. The wrap was freshly made with burnt bits which made it the highlight of the meal. The curry had a good taste and the salad was fresh. Size was smallish, but not too...More

Grabbed a discount deal for this place and glad I did, what a gem, lost between so many other food places on Papanui Road. Good Malaysian is hard to find, try the Beef Rendang curry, that was our favourite dish ordered.

My husband and I frequently order Takeaways from this great Malaysian restaurant. The food is always amazing, especially their roti paratha, yum, and their beautiful wontons. I'm looking forwards to trying their pan fried dumplings! The service is always amazing too, definitely would recommend to...More

Authentic Malaysian food can be difficult to find in Christchurch, but the popular Street Food has a menu bursting with the region's best dishes. "Malaysia Delights channels the flavours of traditional fare usually found at a hawker centre in Malaysia. Owner Peter Foo's restaurant is an inside version of what would be an open-air food market overseas, with all the same exciting flair and spice as its Asian inspiration. Just as the hawker centre stalls do, the chefs at Malaysia Delights formulate their own recipes for sambal chilli paste, curry paste and satay sauce."
