Great food and great service and great cocktails and great homemade ginger beer and a menu that hasn't changed much in the few times I've been. If they keep changing it up it will remain one of the best restaurants in Leederville.

I had a meal here with some friends on Saturday night and though the food was excellent, it took over an hour to get it, hence the 3 stars. The restaurant was busy, and the staff were very nice, but it was just too long to wait. The food was really good though, very tasty. I had the Kapitan Chicken... More

We arrived early when there were few people in the place and the service was immediately attentive. However, we were eventually attended to by no less than 6 different waiters and the system doesn't work. I ordered a beer which arrived very quickly. My partner ordered a cocktail. Ten minutes later we were informed that the ingredients for the cocktail... More

Have been a few times now. Was pleased. Booking was easy. Dimmi said no tables, so we called the restaurant. Luckily! They had a few tables spare, so be aware of the trap that bookings websites set. Always try directly. Food was good. Menu has been rationalised since our last visit but rest assured, the best sellers are there and... More

This Leederville restaurant, easily accessible by public transport, appeared to have broad spectrum of malay dishes. Food and table service was very good but we had such a long wait for it.

We were looking forward to re visiting Ria but what used to be superb food (some time ago when we were regulars) is now very average as is the service, also the prices have gone up with smaller serving sizes. Barely warm, average flavoured main dishes (5) were served before we had finished entrees which were also disappointing. Drinks took... More

The joint crackles with energy as do the superb pork-rib nibbles and skewers of smoky grilled squid served with chilli jam and pickled veggies. The caramelised duck thrills with a purity of taste pleasure while the deep-fried fish in garlic a heady tumeric sauce is to die for. The pandan crepes with coconut and palm sugar reminded me of my... More

Really good Malay food. Reasonably priced. Hot and not so hot, depending on what you order, and plenty of choice. God beer choice too. Service was just OK.

True to its word, Ria Malay Kitchen is home-style Malay cooking. Embracing all the cultural influences that have been added to the Malay melting pot over the years, the menu is a tantalizing fusion of flavours from Malaysia, India, China and even Portugal. In fact, the vindaloo is a Portuguese recipe - more aromatic than the Indian version, with less chilli - and like the Portuguese baked fish, bizarrely, you won't find it in Portuguese restaurants.

Our food is only made using the best local ingredients which are sourced by our team of chefs as every ingredient is considered special. Our food is as a Malaysian mother would cook using nothing processed and only the best available fresh produce.

Our name 'RIA', loosely translates to happy, jolly or bright which is at the heart of our philosophy. We aim to deliver the best possible eating experience in a happy and bright atmosphere without compromising the integrity of our home style food. Our team are carefully chosen to reflect our philosophy and these guys are here to help you have a great meal and enjoy the RIA experience.
