Food is excellent and beautifully presented. Staff are very polite but a little formal. Can be very noisy if busy so probably not conducive to a quiet romantic meal but do try it.as the food compensates for everything

The staff are very friendly and very efficient, they took our coats as we arrived and seated us. The quality of the food was brilliant and all 10 guests had... More

Party of five every dish was spot on. The staff attentive and friendly.we have been to most of the good restaurants in manchesters china town none are as good as the Malacca in Farnborough. The restaurant was very busy as we visited on Christmas Eve but the quality and service was A 1.

I have been visiting this restaurant since it first opened and the quality of food and service is always excellent. For me, this is by far the best Malaysian restaurant I have ever been to

The food and service at this marvellous restaurant was as safe a bet as could have been hoped for.. Excellent Chinese fusion food with Malasian/Thai edge to it,, I would recommend this great dining experience..

Our party of six had a marvellous evening dinner. The food was outstanding and the service was good. The only thing that slightly spoilt it was conversation was difficult at times because of the loud noise people talking. Lots of Christmas parties going on!

I had the pleasure of visiting Malacca for the first time last night, this is a true hidden gem. I do not know how this place is not top of every list when people are searching for food in Farnborough. The service was excellent, the food even better. Two colleagues and I shared a half shredded duck, not the slightest... More
