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

Ok Chinese food we had a set meal which was great value for momey and pleasant. The interior of the restaurant is so bland and a little unpleasant. Needs a refurb!! The restaurant is positioned on a quiet residential street.

I enjoyed a celebratory meal here with my wife. After a year in the Hart area since returning from seven years in China, I am still looking for that genuine Chinese dining experience without going into London. This meal didnt change that, but it gets closer than anywhere else. I suspect this is mostly modelled on Malaysia diaspora Chinese dishes... More

This was ideal for our group of 7, as the menu exhibits a wide variety of Asian dishes, allowing for everyone's favourites to be included. However, even before ordering the food, we were treated to excellent service while we settled down at the table. We were even provided an opportunity to try a wine before ordering a bottle. The table... More

A real diamond to find this restaurant! It is hidden away in a residential area and you could quite easily miss it. It wasn't until it was recommended by a colleague that I went to it. The service IS impeccable, I don't think our wine glasses got any less than a quarter full at any time, the waiter was lovely... More

The food and service was good. Pleasant place. They didn't have high chairs which was a bit disappointing but were nice enough to provide a cushion for our son.

I go to thge Malaca on a regular basis and always find their food excellent and it's a wider selection than Wings Cottage.. I particularly like the Sea Bass! Howedver, I really do wish thay had a better selection of sweets as I do like my chocolate before coffee! Highly recommended though.

Been to Malacca a couple of times now and the food is lovely, owner and staff are very nice so would give it 5 stars if for the fact that on a busy night it can be very noisy. So if you don't mind noise or are in a big group then go it's great. If you want an intimate... More
